Gal Gadot and Elodie Yun Test for Wonder Woman in 'Batman Vs. Superman'

Olga Kurylenko is confirmed to also be up for the role of the warrior princess of the Amazons. Will we get an announcement this Saturday?

Earlier this week, we reported that actress Olga Kurylenko auditioned for the role of Diana Prince in Zack Snyder's upcoming Superman sequel Batman Vs. Superman. Now more information has come to light, revealing that Fast & Furious's Gal Gadot and G.I. Joe Retaliation's Elodie Yung have also tested for the role.

Although nothing has been confirmed by the studio, a casting description stated that they were looking for a tall, brunette, athletic and exotic actress to fill this particular role. Most speculate that it is for the role of Wonder Woman, also said to be Bruce Wayne's love interest. All three actresses seem to be a perfect fit.

Thor: The Dark World's Jaimie Alexander has also confirmed that she met with Warner Bros. for the Wonder Woman role. While she has actually been in talks with the studio, it seems unlikely that she will be able to accept the role due to her contract with Marvel that has her signed on for at least one more movie.

While the Wonder Woman rumor has been talked about for some time, sources close to the project are now saying that several members of the Justice League will make an appearance in the film. Either in significant roles or cameos.

These names are being floated out to the masses for a reason. If you have a particular favorite, chime in below. We like Jaimie Alexander, but if she must decline, we hope Olga Kurylenko is next in line. Anyone out there rooting for Gal Gadot or Elodie Yung?

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.

    @writer220 Yeah, Maybe Wonder Woman will get just a cameo appearance in the movie, but I'm not quite sure. We'll just have wait and see.

    @themoviefanatic All I want to see and hopefully I might or might not be in it as well. That it's only Batman and Superman.
    As far as my memory goes, the first time these two came together they really didn't know each other. Both thought they were a threat to each other.

    @writer220 I'm sure that not even half of the actors and actress that will be in Justice League, will be in the Batman vs Superman movie.

    I just hope it doesn't suck, too many characters are in this all ready. Looks like the unofficial JLA so far

    Either of them would be fine for the role as Wonder Woman in Batman vs Superman.

    @renodc...Despite the film not doing well, i think Collins representation of a beautiful, intelligent princess and fierce warrior would fit perfect with WW...

    I must admit movieweb, it's a good strategy to get people to read your article, putting FALSE information in the title. Look at all the comments so far, discussing these actresses as playing a character that the article itself says may not even be Wonder Woman, admitting "a casting description stated that they were looking for a tall, brunette, athletic and exotic actress to fill this particular role. Most speculate that it is for the role of Wonder Woman, also said to be Bruce Wayne's love interest." As far as I know, only movieweb has been the sole speculator in starting the rumor that this role was for Wonder Woman, when it obviously may not even be the case. The role could be as simple as it says, Bruce Wayne's love interest. With that said, of the 4 actresses mentioned, the two highlighted in this article and Olga Kurylenko would be fine choices to me and wouldn't mind seeing them as Bruce Wayne's love interest, but Alexander just wouldn't work as she is already in another franchise. And that's me saying she wouldn't even work as Bruce Wayne's love interest, not to mention she defiantly shouldn't ever be considered for Wonder Woman. So that debunks your FALSE statement "We like Jaimie Alexander, but if she must decline, we hope Olga Kurylenko is next in line.", because we don't like Alexander in the role as she is already in THOR! It's not that I don't like Alexander, she would be fine as Wonder Woman. But she's already in the THOR films. If she wasn't in those films, I would say she defiantly should be Wonder Woman, but then I wouldn't know of her and know to consider her. And if that was the case, another actress had been cast as Sif, all the fan boys would be saying that she would be perfect for Wonder Woman. There are other actresses out there people, open your mind!

    @thedude1 Actually, I think they do.

    My main concern with Wonder Woman is how she's presented. I hope DC\Warner does like Marvel did with Thor and explain away the stupid connection to Greek Mythology.

    @bane5000 I would be fine with Alexander or Collins.

    They aren't worthy.

    Neither, too scrawny to play WW

    Now im really starting to lean towards either Jaimie Alexander { Thor } or Lynn Collins { John Carter }, the characters they played from those movies can basically be WW

    They should use a traditional Greek actress in playing Amazonian.

    @MillerFarrow Superman and Batman will be the main characters obviously. You might see one more major character have a key role then have a character or two appear to set up the Justice League film.

    @Brizzy I just don't think neither of these two fit the mold. And lets be honest neither of them are great actresses.

    It might as well be the actual Justice League movie with everything they are shoving in.

    No to both.

    Oh, Gina Carano is Henry's ex, didn't know that. Might be why she wasn't considered, shame because she was quite a traditional looking greek mythology warrior princess type.
