LOGAN’S RUN Director: I Want MAD MEN’s Christina Hendricks As My Big-Screen WONDER WOMAN!!

I am – Hercules!!

“I would say that Wonder Woman is probably something that, to me, would be not just a satisfaction, but almost a [catharsis], and I was born to make it,” Danish filmmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn (“Bronson,” “Valhalla Rising,” “Drive”) told the BBC last year, and now he says his “Drive” star Christina Hendricks is his choice for Amazon warrior.

Mind you, Warner Bros. hasn’t yet hired him to put DC Comics’ most famous superheroine on the big screen, but Hendricks has been a fan of the Themysceran princess since she was kid wearing Wonder Woman underoos.

Refn has a lot on his plate, including a remake of Warner Bros.’ “Logan’s Run” (starring “Drive” star Ryan Gosling) in preproduction.

At 5’8” Hendricks is tall enough for the role, but she also turned 36 in May. So “Logan’s Run” will have to make Warners plenty of money if they’ll consider a female lead who’s pushing 40.

From a 2005 interview with Joss Whedon, who cast Hendricks in a recurring role in his “Firefly” TV spaceship show, and who at the time was writing and planned to direct his own “Wonder Woman” movie:

Q: You’ve also talked about [Wonder Woman] being very young. Are you thinking college-age? Teen-ager?

WHEDON: I’d say that’s a pretty flexible thing because it’s her first time setting foot in the world of men. But that doesn’t necessarily mean she has to be a teen-ager. So, yes, they are thinking of a young woman. They’re thinking, I expect, of something franchise-able.

    by blackwood

    She'd be fantastic. And fuck the idea that 'pushing forty' is old -- it's not too old for hollywood leading men, why is it too old for leading women? Have any of these people seen Diane Lane, Marissa Tomei, Helen Fucking Mirren? I'd put Hendricks in that category -- aging like wine. And yes, Vahalla Rising is good -- sort of like Conan the Barbarian directed by Terrence Mallick.

    Costumed heros are getting old

    by donkey_lasher

    I don't think any Wonder Woman movie could be taken seriously unless they did a major overhaul of the character. How long before we get another Batman and Robin?

  • June 20, 2011, 4:06 p.m. CST

    Look, I understand the attraction here...

    by AlienFanatic

    Yes, Hendricks has spunk (as evidenced in her turn in Firefly) and (duh) a rather large rack, but she's not Wonder Woman. I'm not a comic book guy, but my understanding is that WW is an Amazonian, which means she's tall. Hendricks is only 5'7" so unless you're going to put all of the men in ditches, put her in serious stiletto heels (which makes fight scenes or scenes near subway grates tricky), or use CG ala LOTR, she's all wrong for it. I have a feeling the director is simply enamored of Hendricks' bosoms and is trying to leverage that into stuffing her into a bullet bra. I'd rather see an actress that fits the role better, myself.

  • June 20, 2011, 4:06 p.m. CST

    She's so fat that she'll never be Wonder Woman.

    by Cosmo Nautilus

    I'd still slay her with my meat club, though.

    Very apt description of Valhalla Rising.

    Christina Hendricks

    by eric haislar

    is a interesting choice. But....she seems a bit to voluptuous for the role and not really in the warrior princess she needs to be.

  • Granted by the time they make they thing if they set the wheels in motion now, would have her at around 38 (ok pushing 40). Even then Angelina Jolie is around the same age and nobody I know would suggest she's too old. I like the choice of Hendricks and I think if she takes care of herself can be a franchise WW well into her 40's. She's super sexy.

  • June 20, 2011, 4:09 p.m. CST

    And Vandervoort...

    by AlienFanatic

    (whoever the hell she is) is 5'5" tall. She might make a great Wonder Woman if they had her sit on a midget's shoulders (like Austin Power on Mini Me), but otherwise she's all wrong. Lord, the guys on this site seem to love silicone more than celluloid.

    Go the Christopher Reeve route

    by slappy magoo

    Think back to when Reeve first played Superman, and nobody knew who he was, and how well, as a result, he seemed to become Superman. Keaton and Bale both played Batman well enough, but when I see either one of them as Batman, I see them. When I see Reeve as Superman, I see Superman. Wonder Woman needs to be an unknown. No offense to anyone's particular baitin' material.

    Age should not be an issue...

    by Mark Anderson

    ...acting ability and charisma should be, and they are qualities Ms Hendricks has in spades. She is one of the few television actors at present who I think could command the silver screen. She gets my vote.

  • as getting the story right. They really really need to get an amazing script for the movie, or it's all a pointless fucking exercise in how to lose money and bury a franchise.

  • Sadly, I don't think anyone in Hollywood is so much interested in quality and/or perfect casting as they are in turning something out that's *just good enough* to make a bunch of money for a week or two and then quietly disappear before the next wave of crap they shove down our throats appears.

    Better get her to the gym, she's getting pretty huge

    by Andy Pandy

    And I'm talking as a dude who hates the waify thin look. There are pictures of her in a one-piece bathing suit where she's going beyond "real woman" proportions and slowly entering Anna Nicole Smith territory if she's not careful. No woman should starve herself to the point of unhealthiness, but by the same token, no woman should let herself go if she still wants to retain her hotness.

    by SmokingRobot

    Ridiculously bad casting. In a 'costume' she'd look like a beluga whale.

  • Most every rendering of Wonder Woman I've seen, from comic art to Superfriends/Justice League animation, she possesses a "maturity" about her. A "toughness", if that doesn't sound too unsexy a term to apply to a female. When one thinks "Amazon Princess" doesn't it conjure a husky, muscular form with a more mature bearing? So 30's to mid-40's? Eff it! Why not. I won't trash the aborted TV series or it's lead actress, but she had the look I'm not fond of: youthful, cute and darling. Wonder Woman needs to look like she's got steel in her eyes, and the sense of years behind them to back it all up.

    There is nothing wrong with Adrienne Pa(hardlastnametospell). This is not a story, he's not making the movie. Maybe some DC stories can't adapt to a decent film franchise. I'm looking at you Green Lantern...

    She's not fat but to put her in tights wouldn't work.

    by Meadowe

    When talking with Angel's future sire Darla, she pointed to Liam (future Angelus and Angel) and said something to the effect of "his lies sound better in the moonlight." I was pleasantly surprised to hear that the chick all the guys were going gaga over was the same one from that episode. Anyway, good for her if this works out, although imo no one started talking about a wonder woman movie until Charisma Carpenter talked about playing her geez, like almost a decade now? I believe it was like 2003 give or take. Maybe we'll see the Adrianne (spl?) Palicki version as an extra on a dc animated release someday.

  • Keep getting busy so I haven't gotten past the first few minutes, but since this site thinks this guy name dropping Christina hendricks is newsworth, and also Tom Hardy is in Bronson, I may try to pop it in this weekend.

    It would all come down to script.

    by Mr_Satan

    She can go to the gym. Look at Bale. He. gains muscle loses muscle, that's what actors do. Plus they can just use fancy camera tricks to make her look taller. And if you guys don't know this when a woman loses weight her brewers get smaller. I don't see the problem. You guys are just being cynical assholes like Stan in South Park.

    by Mennen

    I'm not suggesting Megan Fox in any way - Simply making a point: If Christina is more "MILF" rather than "super hot for a 16 year old boy" that will greatly effect casting. KIDS ARE GOING TO THIS. Not adults... not first anyway.The studio knows the audience they're talking to is YOUNG.

    Megan Fox wouldn't be bad, actually.

    by blackwood

    Face-wise, at least. I think she's short, though. Not that Hendrix is statuesque or anything, but I think Fox is shorter. And OF COURSE Lucy Lawless IS Wonder Woman. Also in great shape, also aging like fine wine. And we all know she can kick major ass.

    Morena Baccarin

    Also would be pretty awesome. Not tall, although I think her neck is like three feet long. Joss wanted to use her for his WW, I thought. I remember something from the DVDs, some offhand mention. I think she would be killer.

    If they don't let Refn do this it's a HUGE mistake on WB part

    by IndustryKiller!

    Not just because he's a brilliant director and he has a passion that grand for the film, although that's enough by the standards of anyone with a brain. But because he actually might have a wild enough imagination and technical expertise to make a character that has heretofore been unfilmable and is wasting away not making the studio any money actually work on screen. There are very very few people who can make that happen, it's by no means an easy adaptation. The WB has little to lose by taking that chance, if they are so inclined to do it at all.

    Oh yeah, definitely get her to a gym, get her on a diet, and get her a personal trainer. She was always on the buxom side (like Marilyn Monroe), but it looks like she's just starting to get fat. Btw, I prefer skinny girls, but I always pictured WW being a little bigger, womanly, curvy; but she should be curvy sexy, not fat. I think Beyonce has a great sexy, WW style body. I'm not suggesting that she's right for WW, but she's got a smoking hot body that seems WWish to me.

Damned if you do it, damned if you dont. 3. studios like to cast young malnourished waifs, WW is an amazon goddess. Anything less than that is FAIL. 4. in fact the ONLY way to make this movie is as a boy's fantasy style comedy that plays all that shit up, and have a PC women's group against her costume IN the movie. Fuck it, set it IN the 80s. Go all out. Big hair, bad music, leotards and neon socks.

    Like who is this movie really going to be aimed at? Obviously it could only be a lightweight fluff stupid piece of shit, they're just too boxed in and WAY too conventional to do something novel or interesting with it, so it'll just be a jumbled stupid dumbass mess that won't know where it belongs and exist in an ugly stinking gaseous sludge mish-mash of genres because it won't have a goal or point or any reason to exist besides the wrong ones. Like what kind of movie are you REALLY going to make? What is she REALLY going to fucking do? Of course she can't wear a practical armored suit or think with her brain, because it's VERY necessary she wear a skimpy sexy suit for.. the male demographic? The target audience who can look at any sort of sick nasty hot graphic pornography on the internet or even on their fucking PHONES? Oh sure OF COURSE I FORGOT TEEN BOYS LOVE TO SPEND $10 TO GO LOOK AT A CHICK WEARING A SHINY PLASTIC UGLY RED BIKINI INSTEAD OF BEATING OFF IN FRONT OF THEIR COMPUTER TO ANY FUCKING SICK TWISTED SHIT THEIR FANGEEK DEMENTED MIND CAN COME UP WITH FUCK of course OF COURSE HOW COULD I NOT SEE THIS FUCKING BOLD PLAY MR DANISH FILMMAKER NOTHING THIS WORLD NEEDS MORE THAN MORE FUCKING WIERDO SICK DANISH FILMS fuck shit you're right YOU'RE FUCKING right what a GREAT idea how COULD this go wrong? No hey that's cool it COULD be pulled off with a great villian, 'ala Green Lantern or Garfield: The Movie, maybe this project really could be a power-move for women everywhere. Oh, second the Megan Fox suggestion, I think a white trash "Wonder Woman" would be a very positive role-model and show young impressionable girls the most effective way to act like sluts, this could possibly be a film that actually affects society and how we all get along together as human beings.

    Yeah...shes pushing 40. But if she can continue to look like that,who cares? Look how old RDJ was and how screwed up his career was when he took on Iron Man...and now he's the cornerstone of The Avengers franchise. The WB needs to make hiring talented actors a priority,instead of just casting no-name 18 year olds who look nothing like the character. Thats why people freaked the freak out about The Justice League movie...nobody wanted to see Armie Hammer as a pretty-boy 12 year old Batman. Grow some balls DC-and recast Green Lantern while you're at it.

    america is okay with old men, not women

    by Jonathhan Kana

    by our standards, old men can still be sexy, but old women are just nasty. I mean damn, we can list endless talented old guys that still have "sex appeal" but id be hard pressed to fine many talented old women who do. it is just the nature of the beast. Once a woman is over the 35ish look, she is no longer sexy by American standards, while men can be 70 and still rock it. what are you gonna do?

    Aren't you a little short for an Amazon?

    by Stegman84

    No one under 6 foot should be playing an amazon, full stop. Add to that Hendticks is too out of shape these days - and at her age getting back into top physical shape and maintaining it long term is an ever increasing battle - as well as already being on the cusp of being too old to play Wonder Woman, even more so if you are considering launching a franchise, and not just making a single film. Plus, I know fanboys love her because she was on Firefly a couple of times, and because she has red hair and big tits, but she's just not all that good of an actress. Not terrible or anything, but definitely limited in range and not nearly as talented as drooling fanboys seem to want to believe.

    by mrgray

    So fine, send her to a gym. She still doesn't have the WW "steely" look to her. Of course the problem is that few young actresses possess the requisite physical and personal attributes of WW. Lynda Carter was perfect because she was in great shape, she was tall, and she had a ferocity in her eyes and face. Lawless would be the best bet, and anyone doubting it should watch Spartacus. She's a little older but holy crap, she is in FANTASTIC shape. I also think Gina Carano is a good one to consider, if we ever get to see her chops in Haywire.

We should not pretend that any Wonder Woman movie will make sense, or have any semblance of a plot - let's face it, Wonder Woman, has and always will be just a teenagers wet dream. So with that in mind it seems obvious Wonder Woman should be made by Michael Bay. Wonder Woman should be a cast from one the Victorias Secret models.

    The perfect Wonder Woman...

    by keyserSOZE Alexandra Daddario. I love me some Christina Hendricks, but Daddario just looks so much the part, and if you've only seen her in Percy Jackson, you probably didn't realize she's hiding some serious firepower under that sweater. Plus, she's been quoted saying she would love to play the role.

    I didn't know who she was, but looked her up and she's definitely really pretty and I could see her wearing the costume. She seems a little young to me, though. More like Wonder Girl than Wonder Woman. But, yeah, purely on looks alone (since I've never seen her act) I'd support that casting.

    Don't get me wrong, I love Christina Hendricks....

    ...But good Goddamn, that's a whole-lotta-great-big-fuckin'-ass in those swimsuit shots.... Fuckit, I say make Wonder Woman a BBW. Couldn't be any worse than 75% of the drivel they're making now, anyways....But the 'Invisible Jet' is gonna have to be changed to a C-5A Galaxy due to 'enhanced lifting requirements'....

    I love Christina Hendricks but...

    by Cureguy

    She is just too voluptuous and curvy for Wonder Woman. I think WW needs to be more lithe and athletic. Christina definitely needs a vehicle to show off her body though. I love her curves and awesome real big boobs. There has got to be something for her. Maybe "Amazon Woman from Mars"

    Daddario is lovely but needs more acting lessons.
