Christina Hendricks Really, Really Wants To Be Wonder Woman

“I grew up on the TV show, and I had Wonder Woman Underoos, and my brother had a Wonder Woman doll — sorry, Aaron, you’re exposed. And Nicolas said, when we were on set, ‘I want you to be Wonder Woman.’ And I think he is such an extraordinary and exceptional director, that if he asked me to do it, I would do it in a heartbeat … Hopefully the stars would align. It would be really fun. It would be cool, wouldn’t it? I’d get to kick ass.”

Christina Hendricks talks to NYMag.com about how Nicolas Winding Refn, her director for “Drive,” has said that he wants to direct a reboot of “Wonder Woman” with her in the lead role. I know David E. Kelley’s re-imagining of the classic, starring Adrienne Palicki, barely got off the ground. But even though this project hasn’t even been greenlit yet, can I buy tickets now? It sounds awesome.

After the jump Nicolas Winding Refn’s take.

“[Christina is] mature, which I think Wonder Woman has to be, because it’s a very complex character. You know, the whole Wonder Woman concept is ‘What if women were more powerful than men?’ And I certainly can’t come up with a more ideal choice to play that, both consciously because she’s very smart but also because of her sensibility and her physicality … so for me, she’s the perfect choice because she has so much sensibility and sexuality, but it’s true sexuality.”

Co-sign.
