Katy Perry Tops Nerd Poll To Play New Wonder Woman
This has been an age-old debate by hormonal high school boys, comic book geeks, and raging feminists across the world: Who should play the iconic, Amazonian Wonder Woman in the next WW film? We’ve seen a million different answers; all tall, busty, brunette, green-eyed and all seemingly perfect.
But the winner of the popular poll on Total SciFi Online, is none other than our buxom California pop princess, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Katy Perry[/lastfm]. In fact, we aren’t entirely sure she didn’t somehow throw that poll so she could spend the next 6-9 months tromping around in Wonder Woman gear.
Katy Perry is already Russell Brand’s pint-sized wonder woman and now the pop star has won 20 percent of the Total SciFi Online votes, just ahead of Megan Fox, who got a measly 19 percent.
Total SciFi Online‘s editor Matt McAllister commented on Perry’s popularity: “Perhaps pop star Perry could be the key ingredient to finally getting a new Wonder Woman movie off the ground. Though we’re left asking what next – Russell Brand as Superman? Well, his trousers are certainly tight enough.”
You’ve got…sub-par jokes, McAllister. Perry isn’t scrapping the barrel in Wonder Woman talent. While she might not be an A-list actress or 6 feet tall, she’s got the spiced up attitude that Wonder Woman always had. Plus, the rest of her goodies make the men folk feel downright heroic.
Writer-producer David E. Kelley and Wonder Woman developer says: “There’s no real deal in place yet, but yeah, my intent is to take a stab at it…At the beginning, there was a little bit of [casting], but we quickly made it known that was premature. I haven’t necessarily committed to doing it yet…If I can’t, I don’t want to delude Warner Bros or anybody else that I should be doing it. The way I’ve always worked has been to write a script and discover, in the process of the writing, if it’s a fertile and creative place where I want to live. If I feel I can make the characters my own and it’s a world rich enough for me to revisit, that’s a good sign to me that it’s a series worth doing.”
