Olivia Munn Would Love To Play WONDER WOMAN, But Doesn't Think She Has Much Of A Shot
the fanboy favorite actress and presenter (who had a small role in Iron Man 2) is a well know fan of the character, but due to her Chinese-American heritage doesn't think she'd be in with a chance of playing her on the big screen. Read on for more..
Although she made her name as a presenter, Olivia Munn has gone on to prove her acting chops in the likes of Iron Man 2, Magic Mike and more recently as financial journalist Sloan Sabbith in HBO's excellent The Newsroom. Munn is a well known comic book fan and this -- along with her stunning looks no doubt -- has led her to become many fan's pick to play Wonder Woman on the big screen (should DC/WB ever get the finger out) either in a solo movie or in the planned Justice League flick. When asked about this by the Boston Herald the actress reaffirms her love for the character but doesn't think it's likely to happen. "It would be great, though, if the producers could make Wonder Woman an Asian-American, but that's probably not what they would do," Munn said. "I don't know a lot of Asian-American women who are getting great opportunities yet, and the other actresses (vying for the role) are probably really famous and Hollywood tends to go for the girls who are already in the big movies.". What do you guys think? Could you see Munn don the gauntlets and lasso as Princess Diana? Sound off below.
