Casting Call Hints Wonder Woman Will Be in 'Batman Vs. Superman'

The studio refuses to confirm or deny that this character is Diana of Themyscira, though it could be Batman's girlfriend.

A Warner Bros. casting call hints that Wonder Woman may appear in Batman vs. Superman
A casting call issued by Warner Bros. for Batman Vs. Superman has lead to speculation around Hollywood that the studio is seeking an actress to play Wonder Woman in this highly-anticipated sequel.

While there aren't many details on the character, the studio is seeking an actress who is physically strong and can play between the ages of 25 and 35 for this leading role. The studio has neither confirmed nor denied that the part is, in fact, Wonder Woman, although many talent agencies have been submitting actresses with the belief that it is Diana of Themyscira.

While the agencies don't know that it is Wonder Woman for a fact, there aren't many other female roles in the DC Universe that would be so closely guarded. There is the possibility that the mystery character could be a female villain, although none of the other casting breakdowns have mentioned such a character. Earlier in the month, it was rumored that Bruce Wayne will be getting a love interest in this sequel, and the new casting call does match up with that. Here is what they are looking for in Batman's girlfriend.

"Warner Bros. is seeking a woman in her late 20s, with the studio open to casting all ethnicities. The part requires the actress to be tall and physically capable of going toe-to-toe with The Dark Knight."


Its quite possible that these are both for the same role. Back when this was first rumored, it was speculated that Bruce Wayne's girlfriend was actually going to be revealed as Wonder Woman.

In June, before it was even announced that Batman (Ben Affleck) will be featured in the story, David S. Goyer revealed that the sequel will be the cause of the Justice League, Warner Bros. DC superhero ensemble that is still in development. If that is actually the case, it would make sense to introduce Wonder Woman and other Justice League members in this movie, similar to how Nick Fury was introduced in Iron Man.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice comes to theaters March 25th, 2016 and stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons. The film is directed by Zack Snyder.

    @jasonkat Oh, I absolutely think she would be able to fit in, even if we've never seen her in a big movie like Batman vs Superman.

    @undeadslayer4 That's true, but then that would mean that that character would have to be played by a different actress, and so then the question be which actress ?

    @bawnian-dexeus I couldn't agree more as far as the fan aspect is concerned. Mostly everything that Marvel has DC has established first. Even down to certain character designs and functions.

    @mieko-siede One scenario I don't want is for WB to wait on Marvel to make their Captain/Miss Marvel movie and see if it succeeds with the audience so that they can green light Wonder Woman. Reason is, WW came first, in the same light as how the Justice League came first and she should grace the big screen first. Mostly the fan in me talking, but yeah.

    @mieko-siede Indeed. Though I don't think DC will explore Supergirl just yet, even though they should.

    Just come out with it already, Ben's wife will get the part. Sorry don't want to watch.

    I get the feeling Goyer might pull the same gag, or steal it from X-Men, where Bruce's girlfriend turns out to be somekind of intergalactic dignitary's daughter/princess who ends up getting killed, thus leaving Earth open for invasion. That means JLA needs to be formed.

    @superman81 I understand what they're doing. In one sense it's a way to fast track the Justice League movie in a way that can be a legitimate match up against Marvel's Avengers. At the same time they're making their DC Universe more expansive not solely exclusive to stand alone films. They're bringing their characters together to co-exist building a formula that is more unique to them rather than a carbon copy of the competition. It's actually following suit with many of the comic books formula that they are trying to capture. They've already done the stand alone franchises enough that it isn't something they need to revisit. It's a fresh approach to keeping the cinematic verse alive. I think it is more a way to continue their stories into their own franchises by building off one another.

    @bawnian-dexeus In fact, I think it's safe to assume we're going to see a lot more DC characters revealed in this movie than they are letting on.

    @bawnian-dexeus I'm actually coming around to the idea of a Wonder Woman movie. The more I think about it the more I kind of want to see it. I believe you've convinced me in one of our discussions before. And after seeing the animated movie I could imagine the larger scope in a full motion feature. That aside, I'd either like to see her cameo in this film. I agree I wouldn't give her too much screen time unless this is absolutely essential to the Justice League movie. But I'd like to see an expansion on the Kryptonian lore with an introduction of Supergirl. I'd like to see them making more discoveries having her on earth apprehensive about showing herself until the destruction of Metropolis. In fact, I'd like to see how they could introduce both Wonder Woman and Supergirl. And given the fact they aren't looking for any particular ethnicity in casting the part, I'm sure it isn't Supergirl. Still, it would be nice to see how they could elaborate more on that. Give Supergirl the screen birth she's entitled without making her the focus.

    @sean
    Yea i know, i just think eve resemble wonder woman, but she probably couldnt play the part, Gina on the other hand has all the right things to suit up as wonder woman. looks, body, talent, not to mention, shes 1 tough monkey. lol.
    I really have no idea how much air time they plan on giving wonder woman on screen, but lets hope they pick the perfect actress, and use her right, but i feel tht they should wait on her til part3. but if they wanna put her in thismovie, then lets hope she can fit in.
    We'r talking about a woman /super hero. whos never been on the big screen, shes never had a stand-alone movie so its gonna be weird seeing her when we really dont know her story. other than the comics,

    @undeadslayer4 Because Selina Kyle was already in The Dark Knight Rises, and I highly doubt she will return for Batman vs Superman.

    @jasonkat Yeah, Eve Torres was just some cheap looking WWE diva, and Gina Carano is an attractive movie actress who would be fit for the role. I beg to differ though, I'd like to see Wonder Woman in more then just the end of Batman vs Superman.

    @sean
    hahhaha, agreed!
    Hopefully They dont use wonder woman in the film tho, and just save her introduction til the very end, either b4 or after the credits. Which would be great for a man of steel 3 or whatnot.
    This way the movie stays focus on superman and batman.

    @jasonkat Gina Carano would be a much better choice for the role as Wonder woman then Eve Torres any day!

    Whether it's WW or another woman playing a major role as Batman's girlfriend, it's nice to know they're giving Superman top billing in HIS movie and all ever since that subtle Affleck signing and the whole "Superman VS Batman" stuff.

    Marvel learned the term foreshadowing with their story telling, managing to keep a movie about Thor ABOUT THOR as was pretty much the same for the other stand alone movies until it got closer to the Avengers timeline with Iron Man's sequels. Having a good actor to play Batman in this one and introducing other heroes as a prelude to Clark realizing he's not alone, giving reasons why they needed to form the JLA eventually, etc is a good idea. Having a Superman movie that's all about them and not his maturation as a hero is stupid and nonsensical. WB is going to sink the DC franchise with this if they aren't careful and it doesn't look that way with each passing news released regarding the movie.

    @superman81 I think DC is trying really hard to go in a different direction from Marvel. So, instead of standalone films and then a "team" movie, they are slowly bringing the characters in one/two at a time until you have the entire Justice League formation. It's an interesting approach if done correctly. I think they are going to make this film (which I would not count as MOS 2) then either one more team-up film or just Justice League, and finally branch off each superhero into their own film. (including MOS 2 and Batman reboot)

    yeah, batman, the worlds greatest detective doesn't know his gf is an amazonian godess, that makes sense. Plus in the comics her and superman were always an item....not a good fit for batman if you ask me. Seems like they just think "bruce waynes a bachelor" so he needs a love interest in the movie....umm no!!

  28. DanielStampe

    I could see her coming in as a very small addition. They should focus mainly on Superman. This is his movie after all. Have Faora come back so we can get an epic Faora vs Wonder Woman battle. Plus I think having WW fight Batman is a little bit over done. He's already fighting Superman. Why can't she be Batman's back up instead? Perhaps he found her as a new ally and calls her in last minute? Idk. But I hope she gets a small cameo. Or what they should do is do a cameo for her, Green Lantern, and Flash at the very end ala Nick Fury style.

    Look im rooting for this movie but its shaping to be a big mess...trying to cram too much in a short time. Have Batman/Ben Affleck only in the movie for like 20 min. This is suppose to be a Man of Steel sequel. Mehh we'll see

    @thedude1 I don't think it is actually Supergirl since in the prequel she's depicted as a white blonde, and since she's Kal-El's cousin I think she would at least look like him...
