Actresses In Contention For The Lead In 'Batman vs. Superman' Bust That Wonder Woman Rumor Wide Open

When the erroneous rumors started circulating that Jaimie Alexander was in the running for the female lead in Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman, everyone immediately speculated she would be playing Wonder Woman. Of course they did. It made total sense. Look at her.

But that rumor has since been contradicted. Jaimie Alexander is a Marvel girl (Sif in the Thor franchise), she can’t be a DC girl as well. You can only mix those poisons if you’re, uh, Ben Affleck. Or Ryan Reynolds. Or Halle Berry. Or James Marsden. Or-what’s the problem here exactly?! Anyway, Alexander is out and Olga Kurylenko, Gal Gadot and Elodie Young are in. And, in my opinion, that should put the Wonder Woman/Diana Prince rumors to bed because, not to be sizeist, but these (jaw-droppingly gorgeous) ladies don’t exactly look the part.

Sure, they’ve all three been in action franchises. (Bond, Fast & Furious and GI Joe respectively.) But there is simply not enough musculature going on to convince me any of these three could be our favorite Amazonian. Then again, they could always bulk up. After all, Henry Cavill went from extremely buff to batsh*t, eyeball meltingly huge in preparation for Man Of Steel.

If they were looking at this lady to play Affleck’s love interest? I’d believe the Wonder Woman rumors.

But they’re not. Another rumor floating around is that Wonder Woman will appear very briefly (much like Hawkeye in the first Thor movie) sewing the seeds for future franchise involvement, but unlike those ladies above, will not be the love interest for Batman. Good luck keeping that casting under wraps, Snyder.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
