Some of the Internet chatter about why there has not been a Wonder woman movie is that no actress can follow in the footsteps of Lynda Carter. I loved Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman when I was growing up, and I agree that she is a tough act to follow.
But, I’m wondering, why is Hollywood so hung up on an unknown actress? I have a few ideas for established actresses that have done well in action films:
Kristen Stewart–no really–remember Snow White and The Huntsman? Not the scandal–her acting, I mean. Kristen Stewart as Wonder Woman makes sense.
Jennifer Lawrence–she was awesome as Mystique in X-Men: First Class,
and of course there were those OTHER movies–adapted from a book or something. What was the name of that again? She has also proven she can do well in action movies.
