Christina Hendricks wanted for Wonder Woman movie

“If I get to do it, she’s going to be it,” says Nicolas Winding Refn

Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive, Bronson) has revealed he’d cast Mad Men star Christina Hendricks as Wonder Woman if he ever got to make a movie about the superheroine.

Refn recently worked with Hendricks on Drive. The film stars Ryan Gosling as a stuntman, and has been earning rave reviews across the festival circuit.

The director’s long been attempting to get his version of Wonder Woman onto the big screen. “If I get to do it, she’s going to be it,” Refn told Vulture of his dream casting.

In what could be seen as a two-pronged attack on rights holders Warner Bros, only last year Hendricks told Collider: “I’ve been wanting to wear that outfit my whole life.”

No Wonder Woman film is currently on the WB’s slate - Joss Whedon's attempt was shooed out of their offices, while David E Kelley’s recent Wonder Woman TV show failed at the first hurdle.

Next for Refn is remake Logan's Run. If the director continues to garner acclaim, expect him to get his shot at Wonder Woman in the near future.

      I've not seen Mad Men before but she has the figure for the role.

      Mad Men is an outstanding show, I strongly recommend you download, rent or catch the re-runs.

      Anne Hathaway could be a shoo in, shes young and has indie cred like most superhero actors (Maguire, Bale, etc) I dont think Hendricks would be she's a bit too old and would need superhuman powers to keep her *ahem* 'dignity' from falling out..lol

      @KerrAvon: She's obviously gorgeous and got the massive rack to fill out that brassier thing but other than that her figure is less than impressive. She's a little chubby in a lot of pics and has no a**e at all. Google it if you dont believe me. Having said all that, you'd have to put me down with a shotgun to get me off her...

      Love the related headlines below this story- 'MEGAN FOX IS WONDER WOMAN!' 'MEGAN FOX IS NOT WONDER WOMAN!' 'WONDER WOMAN IS...' Let's face it, wonder woman will be utter s**t. It would work worse than Green Lantern... on an aside note, I haven't seen comments on a story this pervy since Dalidab got wind of Channing Tatum playing a stripper.
