Felicity as Wonder Woman: Just up the scale!

Russell_wonder_woman_lI know all PopWatch posts about Keri Russell are supposed to start "Dear Felicity," but alas, I am not Michael Slezak and do not have a firmly established pen pal relationship with this woman. This… Wonder Woman! According to TV Guide, Felicity’s going to voice the superheroine in Warner Bros.’ straight-to-DVD animated flick. It’s an apt choice; Felicity did kick ass in Mission: Impossible, so we know she’s already an action heroine. But could Felicity also play the live-action Wonder Woman that’s been in the works forever? My first response: Absolutely not, she’s too short! And yet…

Technology is getting so complicated lately. I say for the live-action movie, Warners needs to hire a zany digital effects crew that will be responsible for increasing the SCALE of Felicity so that she’s taller – and generally larger — than everyone else in any given shot. She’s so naturally tiny that this could work. She’d only look slightly gargantuan, which is exactly how Wonder Woman should look! Who’s with me?

    Not me. Wonder Woman is not “tiny”. Do you even know what an Amazon is? Amazons are not bean poles. WW should be tall and thicker, not a stick think hollywood girl.

    Haha, true, she’s tiny but under Annie’s suggestion she wouldn’t look tiny anymore if her scale was increased. She’s obviously joking though. What about Megan Fox?

  • BrandonK

    Wonder Woman absolutely should be at least 6 feet tall and very toned. However, I’d be willing to give Keri Russell a shot because I think she’s a great actress. They certainly can do amazing things with special effects…just look at the Gandalf-Hobbit stuff in the LOTR movies.

    Do you fact check at all or is this the drivel that doesn’t make the magazine?
    Emmanuelle Béart was in Mission: Impossible not Keri Russell…I’m sure she’d be flattered though.

  • Annie

    Hmm. She was in Mission: Impossible III. I’ll add the roman numerals to the post pronto.

  • amazonica

    as far as i’m concerned, being that wonder women is an amazon, none of the size 2 chicks in hollywood can fill her fabulous red boots! (felicity won me over after i saw ‘waitress’ so i have nothing against her.)

  • Martha

    Ouch, Lauren. Tough crowd.

  • sean

    i think that it could work, esp. since when they up her scale she’ll get thicker as so many other posters seem to think she needs to be.
    personally i don’t think they’d have to do anything with her scale to be a great wonder woman. i know ww is supposed to be an amazon (something keri is distinctly not), but i’d be fine with a smaller woman that can act the part well rather than simply a woman that fits the physical requirements but can’t act for peanuts.

  • amazonica

    oh sean…why can’t we have both acting and looks? it’s not like i’m saying they should cast chyna. :-)

  • BrandonK

    Jeez, Lauren…I think anyone familiar with the Mission: Impossible movies and/or Keri Russell’s career would remember that she was in M:I 3. Are you that rude to people’s faces, or is it just because you’re posting anonymously on a blog? Be nice.

  • bonnylass

    seriously, chill out, Lauren. this is supposed to be fun, you know.

  • Raven_Moon

    Should Keri Russell be Wonder Woman? I’m sticking with your fisrt response: “Absolutely not!” I have new appeciation for her since “Waitress,” but an Amazonian super heroine she is not.

  • DeeKay

    Did I miss Keri Russel morphing into Joan Allen?

  • Nick

    Now that Whedon’s off Wonder Woman…I officially don’t care. Moving on…

  • Nathan

    Sure she could play a live action Wonder Woman, what does height matter? Tom Cruise looks big in his movies and that guy’s like 5’7.
