Rumor: Gal Gadot, Elodie Yung & Olga Kurylenko Testing For Role (Wonder Woman?) In ‘Batman Vs. Superman’
Closely following a report that said Olga Kurylenko is testing for ’Batman Vs. Superman,’ Variety send word that Gal Gadot (‘Fast & Furious’ franchise) and Elodie Yung (‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’) have or will also test for the same role, which Variety believes may be that of Diana Prince aka Wonder Woman. The outlet’s sources stress there’s still a possibility this role could be Bruce Wayne’s love interest but the casting description of “tall, brunette, athletic and exotic” also matches that of the Wonder Woman character in the comics.
Schmoes Know reported earlier in the week Olga Kurylenko had auditioned for the ’Man of Steel’ follow-up and sources add there is a possibility a fourth girl could be added to the list. Recent reports suggested “Thor” actress for Jaimie Alexander would be up for the part but Alexander’s obligation to future Marvel pics takes her out of the running since it’s a DC comics property. The Wonder Woman rumor has been kicked around for some time and insiders believe the plan is to not just have Batman appear in the film, in addition to Superman, but several members of the Justice League as well. It’s unclear which members but - according to Variety - Wonder Woman (Diana Prince) and the Flash are said to be locks to make an appearance in some fashion, whether that’s a significant role or a cameo. Please note, I’d take all rumors relating to ‘Batman Vs. Batman’ with a
boulder grain of salt at this moment in time.
‘Batman Vs. Superman’ Artwork To Debut During This Saturday’s (November 9th) ‘Man Of Steel’ Fan Event?
Kevin Smith, who will host the ‘Man Of Steel’ fan event this Saturday with Zack Snyder, Henry Cavill and Amy Adams, has teased that we’ll be seeing some official artwork from Snyder’s ‘Man Of Steel’ sequel on the latest episode of his Hollywood Babble-On podcast. “They’re doing a special on Yahoo that I’m hosting, Zack Snyder is the featured guest, but it’s all about Man of Steel. So it’s me, Zack Snyder, Amy Adams, Henry Cavill is on video from London or he may even be on set with us, and then there’s some Michael Shannon stuff. So it’s an hour long, it’s free, it’s on the internet, but it’s just kind of to be like ‘Hey, Man of Steel is coming out!’ But there’s two things, there might be announcements during this show and the one thing I do know is there’s artwork going to be on this show that may or may not have something to do with a movie that’s coming up.” Smith then confirms that he is indeed alluding to the tentatively titled ’Batman vs Superman.’ Quotes via CS.

According to the Schmoes Know, not only will Wonder Woman be joining Batman in Zack Snyder’s ‘Man Of Steel’ sequel, the tentatively titled ’Batman Vs. Superman,’ Olga Kurylenko is said to be testing for the iconic role. If Wonder Woman is in fact joining the film, it’s unknown to the outlet if it’s a cameo or a more substantial role in the 2015 blockbuster. Plus, if Schmoes’ “inside source” is to believed (I’d take all rumors relating to ‘Batman Vs. Batman’ with a grain of salt at this moment in time), then Wonder Woman is joining Ben Affleck’s Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill’s Superman in the film, thus placing another brick in the foundation of a future ’Justice League’ movie. This rumor closely follows the reports that the ‘Thor: The Dark World’ star Jaimie Alexander is in discussions for an unknown role. Expect more news about the film shortly.
Olga Kurylenko, whose recent film credits include ‘Oblivion,’ Terrence Malick’s ‘To The Wonder,’ just finished filming ’Vampire Academy’ and ‘November Man’ opposite Pierce Brosnan. She will start work on Russell Crowe’s directional debut ‘Water Diviner’ when it begins shooting in Australia on December 2nd, then move on to ‘Momentum’ opposite Vincent Cassel and Shea Whigham early next year.
