Olga Kurylenko Comments On Being Up For 'Wonder Woman' In BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DOJ

Though she plays it fairly coy, the gorgeous Oblivion actress does (pretty much) confirm that she was, as rumored, one of of the ladies up for the role in Zack Snyder's follow up to Man Of Steel. Click on for the video interview..

Of course we know that Fast And Furious actress Gal Gadot ultimately ended up with the role, but back when rumors were flying around left right and center as to who would play Wonder Woman in Batman V Superman, the far more experienced Olga Kurylenko was also on the shortlist (along with Elodie Yung). Kurylenko had previously starred in the likes of Hitman, To The Wonder, Centurion and most recently Oblivion alongside Tom Cruise, and seemed to be the fan-favorite for the role out of the actresses mentioned. When DesdeHollywood asked her about it, the Ukrainian beauty says it did "cross her mind", but that she's happy for Gadot, and looking forward to the movie.

"If I could have been [Wonder Woman]..well, because, everyone was saying that it was a possibility. It did cross my mind. But it’s fine, you know. There are many other roles. I am very happy for the girl that’s got the part. I am looking forward to seeing it.""

Would you have preferred if Kurylenko nabbed the role? Or are you happy with Gadot? let us know in the usual place.

@thewonderer Yeah, thank god they got Gal Gadot..
FordEl - 8/14/2014, 2:50 PM

I like her as an actress. However I've only seen her and Oblivion. But she's worked with Ben before.
Doopie - 8/14/2014, 2:51 PM
I thought it was the thing that played Mother Russia from the name
Niklander - 8/14/2014, 2:52 PM

She seems like a nice woman, but I'd rather someone w/ room to improve as an actor get the role than someone who isn't a good actor.
kevberg - 8/14/2014, 2:54 PM
yeah...cause gadot has such acting chops.

yossarian - 8/14/2014, 2:54 PM

She's hot.
FordEl - 8/14/2014, 2:55 PM

Can we not?
DangerRoom - 8/14/2014, 2:55 PM
It's really hard to cast for this role I think. Looking forward to seeing Gal's interpretation, but haven't seen anything yet that has me convinced. :-/

GiantNerd - 8/14/2014, 2:55 PM

Yeah, thank god they got Gal Gadot..

HAILHYDRA - 8/14/2014, 2:56 PM
The perfect woman for Wonder Woman doesn't exist. No one has the perfect body and can act. But personally I think they could have done better than Gal Gadot.
sKeemAn - 8/14/2014, 2:56 PM

You back with the TnA? Where's the DD suit?
HAILHYDRA - 8/14/2014, 2:57 PM
I'm not sure which is more important for Gadot: that she beef up a little or take some English lessons.
yossarian - 8/14/2014, 2:58 PM

I [frick]ed UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pretend it was someone else. I googled her and couldn't help myself.
sKeemAn - 8/14/2014, 2:58 PM
She's more exotic looking than Gadot.
HAILHYDRA - 8/14/2014, 2:58 PM
I'm pretty sure none of you would've said that Gadot was a good actress before they cast her as WW.

That "rumored" group of Women up for Wonder Woman still makes my head hurt.

MrBlackJack - 8/14/2014, 2:59 PM
Oh boy...
sKeemAn - 8/14/2014, 2:59 PM


Couldn't hold out.... And you were doing so well.
CherryBomb - 8/14/2014, 3:00 PM
I was just thrilled they were looking for girls with accents!

I would've liked Olga too though
yossarian - 8/14/2014, 3:01 PM
It's scotch o'clock.
sKeemAn - 8/14/2014, 3:02 PM
Why does WW have to be some hella skinny woman. I thought she was supposed to be a Amazon.
Facade - 8/14/2014, 3:03 PM
Yum yum yum yum
Highflyer - 8/14/2014, 3:05 PM
I would have been cool with it.
shabat - 8/14/2014, 3:05 PM
She's hot
kong - 8/14/2014, 3:06 PM

It makes my [censored] hurt.

Sorry typo I meant HARD!!!
Abary - 8/14/2014, 3:06 PM
Maybe Gadot is a bad actor because she hated every role she has been in... I say give her a chance with Wonder Woman.
MrBlackJack - 8/14/2014, 3:07 PM
Out of all the rumored actresses (that have been confirmed) I was pulling for her the most. It went (Alexander would have been first), Kurylenko, Gadot, Young, personally.
Prime - 8/14/2014, 3:08 PM
She was a Bond girl.
kong - 8/14/2014, 3:09 PM
Oh yeah

^ She should be Wonder Woman!!!
sKeemAn - 8/14/2014, 3:10 PM

I thought you were a chick til that last comment. lol
RorMachine - 8/14/2014, 3:10 PM
She was my pick. I'd seen her in a few movies and she proved she could act in To the Wonder and Oblivion..plus she had the best look imo. I am happy with Gadot now though, but there's no doubt Olga had the experience factor.
FordEl - 8/14/2014, 3:11 PM

CommanderShepard - 8/14/2014, 3:18 PM
I would have picked her. Loved her in Golden Eye.

But the directors must have seen something in Gal Gadot to make her the #1 pick.
CommanderShepard - 8/14/2014, 3:19 PM
And I actually think Gal will do a very good job in the part
PAF - 8/14/2014, 3:19 PM
Damn what a miss.
DrunkenNukem - 8/14/2014, 3:19 PM
@Ror...you saw To the Wonder?...did you understand any of that movie??? because i don´t....so many wide shots in the scenes, its distracting ...and Affleck barely talks in the film...
sKeemAn - 8/14/2014, 3:20 PM

The directors must have put something in Gal Gadot to make her the #1 pick
