Director Nicolas Winding Refn has already stated he wants Christina Hendricks to play Wonder Woman, and studio execs at Warner Brothers have told him the success of his Logan’s Run remake will determine if he gets to make a Wonder Woman picture. Hendricks has already said she’d love to play the character. In other words, Hendricks recently telling Access Hollywood and Vulture that she’d like to play Wonder Woman isn’t a groundbreaking news flash, but it is about both Wonder Woman and Christina Hendricks and we have a picture gallery below. THIS IS OF UTMOST IMPORTANCE.
Hendricks has repeatedly stated her admiration for Refn as a potential director for a Wonder Woman film. Among the many nice things she’s said about him, she told Vulture:
I did Drive was because of Nicolas Winding Refn, the director. I had seen Bronson and I was floored by it, and I said, “I want to work with this guy. I don’t care what it is.”
And yet he didn’t immediately start filming a new movie called Trampoline Bikini Party? You dropped the ball, Refn. I thought we were friends.
Also worth noting, Jennifer Vineyard of Vulture brought up the BDSM facets added to the character by creator William Moulton Marston. When asked. “Would you want your Wonder Woman to be that kind of dark, sexually liberated character? Bring back the bondage?” Hendricks said:
Well, I would certainly do what Nicolas wanted to do, and I can only guess what his version would be, but as I grew up with and am now married to a comic book fan, I think it’s important to be true to the original comic books, because I know that the fans love every detail and it’s very important to them. So I think it would be cool to do that. I look forward to learning more about it, actually. I should probably start reading them, so that if someone were to ask me [to be in the movie], I would be fully prepared.
You hear that Refn? She’ll “certainly do” what you want her to do. Don’t drop the ball again. We assume you’ll be stopping by soon to borrow our trampoline, yes?
