One of our fans by the name of Thomas dropped a tick in our ear about some latest developments over in the Joss Whedon camp and its all about Wonder Woman casting that comes right out of left field, but looks to be right on the mark.
Evidently Joss and company are in negotiations with actress Priyanka Chopra to play the lead in his next big blockbuster comic-to-movie project. It had been thought from the beginning that Morena Baccarin (Firefly/Serenity) would get the nod. Morena, however, has since signed on to do several guest spots on the hit TV show “Stargate: SG-1” portraying Vala’s daughter who is really a super-Ori. It is possible that scheduling conflicts between the two projects have brought all this about, or it could also mean that Baccarin was just one of many serious candidates for the famous comic heroine.
Chopra is a huge star in Bollywood and throughout Indian feature films, but is relatively unknown by Western audiences. She will be starring in India’s answer to Superman this year in the big screen “Krrish.”
