Default The Queen Hippolyta and the Amazonian's Casting Thread

Granted we have discussed the casting of Queen Hippolyta, Artemis, Phillipus, Aleka and several other Amazons and support characters from the wonder-verse in other forums, however I would like to put all those great casting suggestions together here...so let's have it.

Should Wonder Woman's Amazons be based on the new 52 or the pre-flashpoint universe?

With the official casting of Gal Gadot (28 years old, 5' 9") as Wonder Woman:
-how old should the actress playing her mother Queen Hippolyta be?
-should Hippolyta have black hair or blonde?
-does the height of the Queen matter?

Will the Amazons make an appearance beyond non-speaking roles?

It's inevitable that Hippolyta will be cast, but who will be cast to play her:

I would say also, Wonder Woman should be based on Brian's New 52 run. I've never been a big Wonder Woman fan but that run is great.

I would probably stick with what zack snyder is doing with wonder woman and cast a lineup of foreign actresses.

This is the only suggestion that makes sense. Casting American 62 year old Lynda Carter as Hippolyta doesn't make sense. She's not the best choice for the role. She doesn't even look related to Gadot.

I'm not opposed to having Carter make a cameo in a Wonder Woman movie, but she shouldn't be Hippolyta, that's taking it too far.

Ooh, very nice I could see Sandra Bullock or Catherine Zeta-Jones pulling it off pretty well.

I'd only have Hippolyta in this sharing a scene with her daughter but not the rest. Save them for Wonder Woman's own spin off movie.

I would be fine with this as well. Maybe a scene in the Palace Throne Room where Queen Hippolyta is presenting Diana with the armor!

For a second, I thought it was Lupita Nyong'o on the right.
