No Helen Mirren option?

I was agreeing with you up until that bolded part.

I've never warmed up to Garfield as Peter Parker. He's terrific in everything else... even that cameo in Lions for Lambs. But for me, he's not the perfect embodiment of Peter Parker.

If you're talking about a very strict/pure Mediterranean type, though, WW, in the comics doesn't necessarily conform to that description either. She's generally depicted as an attractive white woman with black hair and blue eyes; her complexion varies from fair to tan, but it's no darker than that of her male counterparts, namely Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent.

I personally see WW (especially in classic versions) as more of a Lynda Carter or Jennifer Connelly type; and Jaimie Alexander is pretty spot-on for that look as well. (That's one of the reasons she's my top choice for the time being.) I do recall, however, that artist George Perez tried to subtlety reinvent the amazon when he was on the title by giving her a bit more of a Mediterranean appearance; and, judging by his previous work, I can actually sort of see Melina Kanakaredes in the character.

That said, Diana isn't an actual human being of Greek lineage, such as Elektra Natchios, so I don't think she has to look like Melina or any other real-life modern Greek woman. I'm not an avid WW reader, but, to my knowledge, the character is formed from clay or descendant from Zeus; and, again, that's not your typical Greek woman. As such, it leaves her look a little more open to interpretation.

Still, I'm not going to lie. I'm a bit of a purist (just a bit!), so I do prefer that actors/actresses look as close to the original source material as possible. In light of that, Elodie Yung isn't what I would consider an ideal choice for the role. Perhaps WB is slightly modifying WW's origins for BvS though. Who knows? I'll reserve judgment until we get something official.

Yes.

I'm on team Olga, she edges out Jaimie by a hair for me. I'd be happy with either in the role.

Nia (from My Big Fat Greek Wedding) definitely does. Aniston.. not so much. I like Melina's nose though; it's long and straight -- not bulbous.

So it is not rude to say that a girl has a bodacious honker?

I always tought honkers where Boobs.

This explains a lot of things.

Honkers can refer to boobs as well.

We need a WW phisique thread...

I don't know who I want, but having WW & Nightwing with Superman & Batman could hurt some screen time. How do you fit them in a 2 hour movie?

You don't. You make a 3 hour movie.

Honestly I don't think so. I think we all agree that Wonder Woman has to be athletic in order to show (prove?) she's a credible warrior on screen.

I really don't wanna see another chick with some skinny arms like Adrianne Palicki (despite the fact she was interesting).
