Rumors have been flying fast and furious that DC Comics superhero Wonder Woman will appear in the upcoming “Batman vs. Superman.” And while it still firmly remains in the realm of rumor, there’s one actress who’s ready to throw her proverbial hat into the ring: “Thor: The Dark World” star Jaimie Alexander.
The actress, who plays Sif in “Thor,” started a bit of a ruckus when she announced at a recent comic book convention that she may or may not have met with Warner Brothers about the role, but stayed relatively mum on the prospect otherwise. And when MTV News’ Josh Horowitz caught up with Alexander on the “Thor” red carpet in Los Angeles, she wasn’t (initially) forthcoming about the movie:
“Like, who would win in a fight?” Alexander joked when asked about “Batman vs. Superman.” “Probably Superman, I guess, I dunno.”
When pressed for more info, the actress continued to joke and defer, until she more seriously said, “I’ve been a huge fan of Wonder Woman since I was a little kid. So I’m absolutely flattered that a lot of people have chosen me as their fan choice. I think that is pretty epic, and incredibly humbling.”
“These things in recent years, the fans can get things started and they can actually come to pass, which is kind of a cool age we live in,” Horowitz added.
Humbled, Alexander noted, “Yeah, that’s pretty incredible, we’ll see. That would be rad.”
Horowitz then added that it seems like the choice is up to the fans then, with Alexander doing a take to the camera in her best “dude” voice, saying, “So, come on man!”
So no definite confirmation from this, but two important take-aways: Alexander is clearly interested in the role of Wonder Woman; and if the fans make enough of a fuss, anything is possible.
“Batman vs. Superman” hits theaters on July 17, 2015.
