Three Actresses Test for Female Role in Batman vs. Superman

This weekend, Jaimie Alexander, who plays Sif in Marvel Studios’ Thor films, spoke about having discussions with Warner Bros. about a new comic-related project. This lead many to believe that she might be playing Wonder Woman in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman film. Given Greg Silverman’s comments on the character, it’s not unreasonable to think that the character might appear in the Zack Snyder movie.

Now, Variety is reporting on three actresses that have gone in to test for a female role in the Man of Steel sequel, which they say might be either Wonder Woman or Bruce Wayne’s love interest. Among the names they list are Fast and Furious‘s Gal Gadot, G.I. Joe: Retaliation‘s Elodie Yung, and Quantum of Solace‘s Olga Kurylenko (reported earlier today by Schmoes Know). In addition, they note that a fourth actress may have gone in to read for the role, which is being described a “tall, brunette, athletic and exotic.” The site also notes that, due to her obligations with Marvel, it is unlikely that Jaimie Alexander will be cast in the role, be it for Diana or for another character.

In one last curious bit of information, Variety reports that their insiders say the plan is for multiple Justice League members, in addition to Batman and Superman, to appear in the film, including Wonder Woman and The Flash, but it is unknown if these roles will be cameos or of significance. What do you think of these new developments? Do you want to see Wonder Woman in the film? Sound off below!

Henry Cavill will return as Superman in the upcoming film where he will face off against Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. Also starring Amy Adams, Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburne, the Zack Snyder-directed Batman vs. Superman hits theaters on July 17, 2015.
