Update: Shortly after I published this article stating that Olga Kurylenko was in the mix for Wonder Woman, Variety published an article adding two more names. They confirm that Olga Kurylenko is indeed in the running, and say that Gal Gadot (Fast and Furious) and Elodie Yung (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) will be testing for the Batman vs. Superman role as well. Variety says that Thor actress Jaimie Alexander’s obligations to Marvel will likely prevent her from landing the role.
The original report about Olga Kurylenko’s involvement is below:
At this point, a Wonder Woman cameo in Batman vs. Superman is almost inevitable. The rumor started back in September when a casting call went out for an actress in their late 20’s who is both tall and possesses physicality. Then a Warner Bros. president addressed the rumors and said “everything that has been speculated are things that we’ve thought about”. Last weekend, Thor actress Jaimie Alexander revealed that she’s chatted with Warner Bros. about Batman vs. Superman. Now we can add another name to the list of ladies that could be in the mix…
According to Schmoes Know, actress Olga Kurylenko is testing for the role of Wonder Woman in Batman vs. Superman. Kurylenko has appeared in movies like Quantum of Solace, Oblivion, and even starred opposite Ben Affleck in To the Wonder. It’s been rumored that four actress are up for the part, and now we know two of them — Jaimie Alexander and Olga Kurylenko.
