My Last Word On Wonder Woman Casting

I remember when I first started blogging that I found these terrific pictures of some awesome athletic model dressed up as Wonder Woman. For me this was perfection. The look, the body, the costume - all perfect for a live action adaptation of the story. She has to have stature and heft to inspire awe in everyone who sees her.

She looks just like the image of Wonder Woman I have in my brain. I never knew who she was but recycled these pics whenever someone was mentioned (like Kristen Stewart from the Twilight Movies for the role - GAH!) who was not suited.

The girl in these pictures looks alot like Cobie Smulders (on the TV show, "How I Met Your Mother") and I can only hope that her resume reaches the desk of Josh Whedon or anyone else willing to tackle this superhero franchise.

It's such a no-brainer. Hot and sexy fights with hot and sexy mythical gods and creatures by a female hero to show all our little girls who they needed to look up to. Thanks for Samurai Frog for finding these images on the day I am talking about this topic. Proof that people actually read my stuff and that feels good.

Actually I've read that when Joss was writing his draft of WW he had Cobie Smulders in mind for the role. Hopefully if they ever do make a Wonder Woman movie they will take that into consideration.

The fellow who made these images is an Australian fellow named JoshWC. He has a blog over at wordpress:

He does some wonderful photomanips of superheros, not just Wonder Woman.
