Gal Gadot was chosen to play Wonder Woman after an exhaustive search to find the right actress to play the role of the Amazonian Princess. Wonder Woman went on to open to rave reviews, and Gadot’s performance was highly praised by critics.
However, there are a few who still believe another actress could have done a better job than Gal and in this list, we are going to look at 8 actresses who would have been worthy enough to wield the Golden Lasso.
8. EVA GREEN
Eva Green was first speculated to play Wonder Woman herself. Eva Green is an excellent actress and most certainly has the talent to play Wonder Woman, thanks to her previous experience in playing strong female characters in movies.
7. ELODIE YUNG
Elodie Yung played Elektra for Marvel’s Netflix show and actually auditioned for Wonder Woman before this. She was one of the finalists in the running for the part before losing out to Gal Gadot. If Yung can pull off Elektra flawlessly, she could easily nail Wonder Woman.
6. COBIE SMULDERS
Cobie Smulders played S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
This fuelled rumors in 2013 that Smulders was to play Wonder Woman for the DCEU. The conviction and versatile toughness that she brought to Agent Hill is proof enough that she would be perfect to play Wonder Woman.
5. JESSICA BIEL
Jessica Biel was in the running to play Wonder Woman, but Biel turned down the project. We think she could do stellar work for Wonder Woman.
4. ALEXANDRA DADDARIO
Alexandra Daddario said in an interview that she “would love to” play Wonder Woman in a movie. There is no doubt in our mind that Daddario would make a superb Wonder Woman.
3. MORENA BACCARIN
Before she starred in Deadpool, Morena Baccarin was supposed to play Wonder Woman to fill the ruby red shoes of the character.
When asked for a comment on the speculation, Baccarin replied that, if she was asked, she wouldn’t say no.
2. JAIMIE ALEXANDER
Jaimie Alexander played Lady Sif for Marvel’s Cinematic Universe’s Thor, and was approached for the role of Wonder Woman for the Batman V Superman film.
Years later, Alexander did admit she was considered to play her but lost the role to Gal Gadot.
1. KATIE MCGRATH
Katie McGrath played Morgana in the Merlin’s series and Lena Luthor on the show Supergirl. She would have made a good Wonder Woman.
