Let's cast Wonder Woman

So I think there's been enough speculation and it's time for us, the female fans of comic books to TELL Joss Whedon who we want as Wonder Woman. Seriously. If some bloggers can manage to get a studio to reshoot bits of 'Snakes on a Plane,' why can't we wield influence when it comes to casting Wonder Woman?

When we have a national or provincial election here in Canada, the party candidates for each riding are decided on by party members in that riding through a vote. Prior to the vote though any party riding association worth it's salt forms a search committee. The purpose of the search committee is to look for a group of candidates. They brainstorm about who in the community would make a hardworking candidate, who has ideals similar to the parties, who would represent the riding best. Or at least that's the ideal. From that committee there should be a list of nominees who go on to compete for that aforementioned vote that will have them becoming the party's candidate in the next election.

I'm thinking that those of us in the fangirl community should start an informal Wonder Woman search committee. We should come up with a shortlist of acceptable candidates. I have no idea how we could track this but I'm pretty sure someone out there would know. This is something that's already under way anyhow. Gina Torres, Morena Baccarin and Monica Bellucci seem to be mentioned quite often. We'd simply be putting a clear goal in front of us when we discuss who Wonder Woman should be.

What do you all think?

I love this idea! I also think Gina Torres could play this role blindfolded, with one arm lassoed behind her back (not that she should do it that way). But I'm biased when it comes to her. ;)
