"Batman Vs. Superman" fans are currently on alert following recent talk that Wonder Woman may be making an appearance in the coming film.
Bleeding Cool sparked the Wonder Woman chat after reporting that it has seen casting calls sent out for the "Man of Steel" sequel that look to fill a secret, unnamed female role. The site didn't quote the text of the casting call directly, but the post describes that DC is "looking for a new female lead, but the information they're giving is incredibly light."
"I can tell you that she'll be somewhere between 25 and 33 -- or at least leave the impression of a woman in that age range, whatever that might be," continued the BC description. "I can tell you that she needs to be physically strong. They're specific about that."
Though casting agents appear to be in the dark about the specifics of the role as well, it is reported that they are "sending up candidates for the role of Wonder Woman" due to their own "expectation" about the unnamed character. Seeing that there isn't much to back up the identity of the mystery female character, though, the possibility of a Wonder Woman appearance remains fairly slim. This hasn't stopped the film's fans from speculating about who the character could actually be. Some are clinging to hope that the role is for Wonder Woman, while others are rooting for a return of Catwoman. BC also throws out the possibility that it could even be a super-villainess, adding another layer of intrigue to the vague casting call description.
It's important to note that Warner Bros. has yet to deny or confirm the characters' identity as Wonder Woman. But with all the talk surrounding "Batman Vs. Superman," this new casting possibility shouldn't be taken too seriously until more details emerge. Yes, the movie's July 17, 2015, release date is pretty far away. But lucky for the Zack Snyder-directed film, the buzz continues to grow.
