Gina Torres On Her WONDER WOMAN Fan Campaign; Says She'd Still "Love To" Play Her

Around the time of Joss Whedon's Firefly, Torres was a big fan-favorite to play Diana on the big screen...and while that was quite a while ago now, the campaign is still active. The Suits actress gives her thoughts on that to Vulture after the jump..

Gina Torres' Zoe was one of the most popular characters on Joss Whedon's incredibly popular Firefly tv series and its spinoff movie Serenity. Torres' portrayal of this "warrior woman" along with the fact that she happens to be gorgeous and pushing 6 feet tall led many fans to campaign for her to take the role of Wonder Woman if a live action movie ever got off the ground. The actress (44) realizes that this is probably unlikely to happen now, but in an interview with Vulture she reveals her love of the character, how delighted she is that the fans are still behind her, and that she would still love to play her.



"You know, she is a superhero that has been a part of my life since I can remember, and it is incredibly gratifying and heartwarming and wonderful that this campaign continues to have a life — even though it might be maybe three or four people that are keeping it alive. [Big laugh.] I love them! I don't know how realistic it is. Of course I would love to do that. Who wouldn't in their right mind? And why not? Well, there are all kinds of reasons why not. But yes, it is a fantasy. And it's a hoot. It's a hoot that every now and then, all these years go by, and people are still thinking that I could do that; I could make that wonderful and they will come and see it. I can't even tell you how that feels."
