GHOSTED Star Ana de Armas Comments On Possibility Of Replacing Gal Gadot As DCU's New WONDER WOMAN

With Wonder Woman 3 shelved by DC Studios, there's speculation surrounding whether Gal Gadot will be replaced as Diana Prince in the DCU. Ana de Armas, however, may have taken herself out of the running.

Even before she proved her action credentials in No Time to Die, there was a lot of chatter among comic book fans about Ana de Armas potentially playing a superhero. With John Wick spin-off Ballerina on the horizon, we'll soon see more of what she's capable of, and a taste of that can also be found in Apple TV+'s Ghosted.

Doing the round to promote the movie, de Armas was asked by Wired whether she would consider taking over the role of Wonder Woman from Gal Gadot. 

Remember, DC Studios co-CEOs James Gunn and Peter Safran pulled the plug on Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman 3, shelving the movie because it didn't fit into their DCU plans (and, if rumours are to be believed, her outline wasn't very good). 

As a result, there's a lot of speculation about Gal Gadot's Diana Prince potentially being recast, a move that would make sense considering the fact we're getting a new Batman and Superman. Going back to de Armas, however, and she doesn't currently seem keen to pick up where Gadot has left off. 

"Well, I feel like Gal Gadot is doing a great job," the actress rather diplomatically responded. "So you know, I think she should keep doing that."

When the role isn't currently vacant (at least not officially), we're not exactly shocked by de Armas' answer to this question. She'd be a great choice to suit up as the DCU's new Amazon, though there's a chance the character is being shelved for now seeing as we're getting an HBO Max TV series revolving around Themyscira long before the hero was born. 

Time will tell what becomes of Wonder Woman as she's the one member of the Trinity we can't predict the future of for the time being.

Who do you think should play Wonder Woman in the DCU?

@iceballsreborn - I was about to say the same thing. She is awful in ghosted. Especially the first few minutes. After that she was ok.

Not only she is far more talented, she is also more attractive IMO, so why not?

Also, if Rian Johnson has time for something other than Knives Out, he could be a good option for Wonder Woman.

He is a good director who made the mistake of participating in the last Star Wars trilogy. Don't judge him for it.

She’d be a perfect Zatanna.
Wonder Woman needs someone more physically imposing. I like Gal in the role but that’s mainly because Zack Snyder gave her cool fight scenes. We can always do better

I see people saying she is a great actress. I guess I just haven’t seen that yet. She was really cheesy and wooden in No Time to Die. She was interesting in Knives Out, but literally every character in that movie was.

She just seems like a petite pretty woman that a lot of dudes like because she is hot. Or has she had amazing performances that I haven’t seen yet?

@mountainman - I agree and I’m Cuban. I’m like, ok, she’s very pretty no doubt, but I’m not seeing the big deal. Like when ScarJo became the top earning actress I understood it, and I’m not comparing beauty I’m comparing screen presence. Cameron Dias was always finer than drew Barrymore but she ain’t no drew Barrymore.

Cuban girls just ain’t got it I’M JUST PLAYIN I’M JUST PLAYIN

@TheWalkingCuban - I would certainly never argue that de Armas is not a beautiful woman. And that’s all it takes for some roles. I’m just wondering if she has shown off acting chops in something I haven’t seen since I hear people say she’s such a great actress and I just haven’t seen it.

@mountainman - She played Marilyn Monroe in Blonde. The movie was sort of a rough watch, but she was really great as Marilyn.
