You may know her as the snarky secretary Joan from AMC's hit series, Mad Men, but Christina Hendricks may shed her office clothes for star-spangled spandex as the next Wonder Woman.
In a recent interview with New York Magazine, Hendricks admitted that she's definitely up for the role as the super heroine Wonder Woman.
Sure! I grew up on the TV show, and I had Wonder Woman Underoos, and my brother had a Wonder Woman doll, she told New York Magazine regarding reports that Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn has nominated her for the role.
Currently promoting her roles in Drive and I Don't Know How She Does It subsequently, Hendricks is hopeful for a future collaboration with Refn, who said she would be the perfect choice for Wonder Woman at the Los Angeles Film Festival in July.
Nicolas said, when we were on set, 'I want you to be Wonder Woman.' And I think he is such an extraordinary and exceptional director, that if he asked me to do it, I would do it in a heartbeat, she said.
However, Warner Bros. has not released any plans to remake Wonder Woman with Refn, or any other director, just yet.
So how would Christina Hendricks plan to portray Wonder Woman, a role once held by Lynda Carter in a television series that ran from 1975-1979?
As I grew up with and am now married to a comic book fan, I think it's important to be true to the original comic books, because I know that the fans love every detail and it's very important to them. So I think it would be cool to do that, Christina Hendricks said.
