Illustration for article titled Christina Hendricks Could Be The Next Wonder Woman

The latest attempt to revive Wonder Woman failed just a few weeks ago, but talk of Christina Hendricks taking up the Golden Lasso has already revived our hopes. When asked about the role in December, Hendricks said:

I heard that rumour too -– I don't know where it got started but I love it! ‘I've been wanting to wear that outfit my whole life! I'd love to [do it]. That would be such fun! Let's put it out there!

Danish filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn has been talking about doing a film version, and recently declared, "If I ever get to do it, she's going to be it." Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean he has her in mind for the lead, but that won't stop us from trying to picture Joan fighting crime.

I've long since given up on caring about this. They're gonna choose whoever they choose and the movie will suck or won't.

I mean, seriously, this whole thing has turned into some silly litmus test about some fans personal preferences for women verses whether the actress has talent or not. Wonder Woman has been depicted a of different ways over the decades and your personal fannish ideal really isn't that much more valid than someone else's.

"Ooh, ooh! She should be more hippy and busty! [Stupid rationalization about representing the strength and vitality of Earth and women.] Plus, you know, jiggle physics."

"You fools, she should tall, lean and muscular, like a female body builder because [Stupid rationalization about what female warriors should look like which almost never actually includes ugly but real women warriors.], plus you know, muscle chicks turn my crank!"

It's just silly and a little patronizing.
