Wonder Woman’s first solo adventure on the big screen begins filming in November under the watchful eye of director Patty Jenkins. Super scooper Umberto Gonzalez of Heroic Hollywood, says that “according to sources, actors Sean Bean and Eva Green are being eyed by Warner’s for villain roles. Sean Bean is being considered for Ares – The God of War, while Eva Green is being eyed for Circe – The Sorceress.” Both are fantastic actors, and if you’ve seen both Game of Thrones and Penny Dreadful, you know that both would be fantastic in those perspective roles. And as a man, the prospect of watching Gal Gadot and Eva Green go at it…in a fight I mean, would be pretty hot and down right awesome. As the site cautions, Umberto isn’t sure if meetings have taken place or offers have been made, so for now, this is still a rumor. But it’s one I certainly hope comes true.
On to something that is 100% confirmed. Both Hawkman and Hawkgirl will appear on The CW’s new live action television series DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Filming began this past week, and to mark the occasion, the network revealed an official image of actors Ciara Renée and Falk Hentschel in full costume. Granted, the wings are absent, but we already know they will be there. These costumes look right at home with the Arrow/The Flash aesthetic, while remaining faithful to the comic books. I can’t wait to see this tandem of characters come to life on screen in 2016.
