With Gal Gadot’s future as Wonder Woman aka Diana Prince on tenterhooks, fans have been sharing their casting preferences for the legendary DC superhero and Alexandra Daddario is taking the top spot .
James Gunn DC Universe rumors are rife yet again, and this time it concerns the Wonder Woman casting. Gal Gadot’s future as Wonder Woman became uncertain when Gunn and Peter Safran took over DC Studios in October 2022. Reports at the time suggested that the duo didn’t have plans for a third movie starring Wonder Woman.
Will DC Comics assume a different actor in the iconic role and could Alexandra Daddario be the next Wonder Woman?
ALEXANDRA DADDARIO REPLACES GAL GADOT’S WONDER WOMAN IN EPIC PHOTO
Alexandra Daddario is the most popular choice to take up the Wonder Woman mantle. After a jaw-dropping image of the actress in the hero’s costume has gone viral.
Sadly the photo gives no confirmation that Daddario will take on the role. As the image was actually created by digital artist Jaxson Derr. He shared a digital rendition of the actress wearing the Wonder Woman costume to his Instagram, with the caption: “Dying to see Wonder Woman wear a cape. Maybe Alexandra Daddario could rock it in the DCU?” However, Gal Gadot reprises Wonder Woman in Shazam! Fury Of The Gods, so it doesn’t look like she’s giving up the role anytime soon.
Whilst it’s hard to imagine Gal Gadot not playing Wonder Woman; there’s no denying that Alexandra Daddario would fill the Amazonian warrior’s shoes well. Since Jaxson’s image has gone viral, fans have declared Daddario to be one of the top actresses to play the blue blood demi-god on screen.
This is not the first time Daddario has been caught up in superhero rumors. Back in 2014, reports claimed that Marvel shortlisted the actress to take on the role of Jessica Jones in the titular Netflix series. However, Krysten Ritter ultimately scored the part.
ALEXANDRA DADDARIO WOULD ‘LOVE’ A SUPERHERO PART
Alexandra Daddario could be a convincing choice as she has previously performed stunts and fight scenes. As seen in her role as Blake in the action thriller film, San Andreas. Alex’s action roles have certainly prepared her to take on a superhero role; as Wonder Woman is a very agile, action-orientated character.
Fans are elated that Daddario has previously expressed an interest in playing a superhero on the big screen. Whilst she didn’t mention Wonder Woman. In a 2019 interview, she revealed: “I would love to be part of any of those films.”
Whilst Daddario has previously noted that she’s a fan of the universe’s roster of heroes. She noted that it wouldn’t be the end of the world if she didn’t land a Marvel or DC role.
