And Almost Starring

Episode 31 - Wonder Woman

December 29, 2020

In honor of the sequel having just been released, we’re going back to the distant year of 2017 to break down who almost starred in Wonder Woman! Which Grammy-winning pop star was considered for Diana? Which Oscar-winner was offended when they offered her the ‘mom role’ of Queen Hippolyta? What would the Julie Taymor-directed Wonder Woman have looked like? And does this film feature the first instance of a ‘reverse She’s All That’? Also – whose idea was it to slap a lopsided mustache on the God of War??


Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Saïd Taghmaoui, Ewen Bremner, Eugene Brave Rock, Lucy Davis, and David Thewlis; directed by Patty Jenkins
