With DC’s upcoming Man of Steel movie, the giants of the Superman comic books look set to rival Marvel’s on-screen activities with the formation of a live-action superhero team of their own. The Justice League are DC’s answer to Marvel’s Avengers, and include such heroes as the Man of Steel himself, Batman, the Flash, Green Lantern and Wonder Woman.

Now, if Wonder Woman was to be cast on the big screen, who would be suitable for the role? This isn’t the first time WhatCulture has published an article on this subject. Jordan LaRue offered his opinion last September with an article about the same topic and came up with some great choices, so feel free to check that out. However, I wanted to throw in my two cents, without overlapping or copying any ideas from that previous article.

So, without further ado, let’s take a look at 5 more actresses who could pull off the role of Wonder Woman in a live action Justice League adaptation…


5. Hayden Panettiere


The very gorgeous Hayden Panettiere (who has rocked dark hair before, incidentally) would make a great young Wonder Woman, if that’s the way DC/Warner Bros. wanted to go with the character.

She’s beautiful – we’ve covered that already – she’s in great shape, she’s demonstrated the ability to play a brave and heroic character in the aptly named Heroes and, whilst her name is a big draw, she’s not at that level that would take the limelight away from the likes of Christian Bale (should he continue his role as Batman, as has recently been rumoured, in a team-up movie).

She’d also look great in the Amazonian getup. That’s the main focal point of this little argument, the be honest.
