There's one feminine enigma Sandra
Bullock doesn't solve in Divine
Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood: Who will play the
Amazonian adventuress in that long-in-the-works Wonder Woman
movie? Bullock's name has long been attached to the project, but
she tells TV Guide Online, "I just don't have the time or
the capability to think that I can pull that off."
Indeed, it takes Herculean chutzpah to play bullets and
bracelets! So who's woman enough to fill Lynda
Carter's magic girdle? "Somebody who is really
athletically inclined and can kick ass," Bullock muses.
"She's agile. She's like a cat. That's what it deserves —
it deserves someone who can enjoy the camp, but also play the
serious or the dark side. Because Wonder Woman has such a
dark core to it, if [producers] embrace that, there's a couple
of women that could do a good job." Here's a list of ladies
we could see piloting an invisible jet. — Daniel
R. Coleridge with Michael Ausiello
Anderson: With V.I.P.'s recent
cancellation — she played a busty, baddie-bashin' bodyguard
— this supervixen is out of work! But can the ex-Baywatcher
convey Wonder Woman's sharp intellect? More importantly, would
she make a convincing brunette?
Butler: Using Wonder-gear like an enchanted lasso
— and a tiara that doubles as a boomerang — shouldn't daunt
Butler. She currently wields a mean magic glove on TNT's Witchblade.
Let's just hope the recently-rehabbed starlet stays off the
sauce — otherwise she'll be Woozy Woman!
Garner: On Alias,
this TV spy has brains, beauty and brawn. Too bad she's already
doing the comic book thing as Ben
Affleck's super-sidekick, Electra, in Daredevil
(due out Feb. 14).
Michelle Gellar: This fierce beauty can so
save the world from vampy villains — she does it weekly on Buffy
the Vampire Slayer. Plus, she even paid homage to Wonder
Woman by turning into her at this year's MTV Movie Awards. Holy
Lawless: A long-rumored contender for the role,
Warrior Princess star already has played an Amazon royal
who consorts with Greek gods. And since her Xena character
always displayed lesbian leanings, Lawless shouldn't have any
trouble fitting in on the females-only Paradise Island!
Lopez: Voluptuous and curvy, J.Lo can fill out
Wonder Woman's one-piece well enough to do Lynda Carter proud.
Moviegoers who saw Enough
also know she'll gladly open up a can of whupass on trifling
male dogs! (Poor Billy
Kelly Osbourne: This reality TV brat's already an
unlikely model and pop star, so why not a big-screen superhero?
Actually, she'd be better off filling Debra
Winger's old boots as WW's frumpy little sister, Wonder
Yeoh: Who cares if the comic-book icon isn't
Asian? In Crouching
Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Yeoh showed the menacing moves
(and compassionate heart) needed to do Diana Prince justice. And
you just know she'd pull off that classic "transformation
twirl" with style and grace.
