Kate Winslet Wearing Geeky Glasses Has Me Singing "Wonder Whoa-man!"
Remember this beautiful lady? She's my absolute favorite superhero:
Attempts at a reboot or a Wonder Woman film keep stalling--and no won...er...no shit, because who can live up to Lynda Carter? The moment I saw photos of the glorious, bespectacled Kate out doing the grocery thing, a little lightbulb flashed in my head, and I haven't been able to stop thinking about her since. All she needs to do is go brunette. Wonder Woman is set to make an appearance in Justice League, so...make it happen DC. (FilmDrunk)
Speaking of failed attempts, you can have a look at the concept art for what would have been David E. Kelley's "Wonder Woman," had it not gone tits up. (io9)
California seventh grader and junior Wonder Woman, Lauren Rojas sent her Hello Kitty flying high; 93,625 feet, to be exact.

Here's an equal opportunity to pledge yourself to the Night's Watch. Through February 18th, you can go to HBO's "Game of Thrones" affiliated My Watch Begins and add your voice to Jon Snow's (Kit Harrington). (There's also a live gathering happening in NYC.) In concurrence with the February 19th Blu-ray release of Season 2, a compilation of all the recordings shall be heard. (EW)
Wonder whether you should watch HBO's women? Hannah Horvath may well be the next Walter White or Louis CK. (I maintain she's the new Larry David.) And while you're cringing, don't leave "Enlightened's" Amy Jellicoe behind. These ladies are "the crest of a second, female-centered wave of change..." (The New Yorker)
Real life heroine, Pennsylvania mail carrier, Jo Amerson, saved a doggy life when she saw a house on fire. Calling her actions "All in a day's work," Amerson knocked out windows to check if anyone was inside, found an unconscious dog and performed CPR to revive the animal. (via Uproxx)
Do your pups just sit around eating biscuits? Wonder Sheepdogs Sarah and Sophie earn their keep as actors, posing and pawing around town so they can be delightfully exploited over the interwebs every day. I'm not complaining. (Cees Bol and Hanneke van de Watering Flickr via Buzzfeed)
Wonder if being a beautiful woman is enough to get you cast in Ryan Gosling's first directorial feature? No, silly! You have to sleep with him too. (Celebitchy)
She can shop AND read at the same time! Hello, Diana!
