At Stan Lee's Comicaze Expo yesterday, Alexander mentioned how she has been approached by Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment and has some limited knowledge of the plot of Batman vs. Superman. (Whoa.) But she said nothing about a particular role in that film and literally everyone online is jumping to conclusions right now.
"I’m a huge fan of Wonder Woman," Alexander said per Forbes.com. "I really think if this is the closest that we’re ever going to get to Wonder Woman, then I’m proud to play Sif. I hope that other comic book entities can learn a lesson from Marvel in how to execute a female character the way it should be done....I really would like to one day see a Wonder Woman film or Wonder Woman character, but until it’s done with class, I’d rather it not be done."
Now, every website is running the theory she could be in the running for Wonder Woman in Batman vs. Superman, yet no one has taken a step back from the initial knee-jerk reaction of her comments to say she could have been approached to play Bruce Wayne's love interest in the Man of Steel sequel instead. Of course she looks the part but it could be some other role, too. Most everyone is jumping to conclusions and this is causing a mass amount of misinformation to run rampant online. (This is definitely not a new thing on the Internet.)
Now if Alexander is in the running, and potentially lands the role of Wonder Woman, then The Daily SuperHero is all for it. But at the same time, you'll mostly likely see the end of her days as Lady Sif in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It would be a conflict of interest between competing super hero franchise studios (in theory).
In the end, Alexander's quote sounds like it is a bit out of context right now and she was just expressing her fandom for the Wonder Woman character more than anything else. The little part about her knowing a bit of the Batman vs. Superman plot is a different story though and it makes sense why many are hitting the speculation train hard. While it would be great to see Wonder Woman get her chance to shine on the big screen, this assumption is also far-fetched at the moment. UPDATE: So far-fetched Alexander has even addressed it.
"Being in the comic book world, we know a lot of the same people at DC and Marvel, so we hear a lot of things, but it’s all speculation right now."
As of right now, and this exact moment, let's just focus on having a new version of Batman being introduced in the summer 2015 blockbuster before other DC heroes are introduced. Just sayin'.
And just to stir the pot more than it should be stirred, here's a photoshopped image of Alexander as Wonder Woman, by @ADAMhlavac.
Or maybe this photoshopped image will feed your inner nerdom...
