Time Warner (NYSE:TWX.DL) needs to move fast and secure actress Jaimie Alexander for a Wonder Woman film, Fool contributor Tim Beyers says in the following video.
Fans will remember that Alexander has played the warrior Sif in both Thor and Thor: The Dark World. Combined, the films have earned close to $830 million at the worldwide box office for Marvel parent Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS). The figures have some, including my Foolish colleague Steve Symington, calling for a Sif solo film. Warner and DC Entertainment must move fast if they want Alexander as Wonder Woman.
There may have already been discussions. According to a recent Forbes article, Alexander told the gathered audience at Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo that she'd been talking with both studios. She also hinted that she knows a bit about the plot for the 2015 Man of Steel sequel, Batman vs. Superman. Executives may have already pitched her for a Wonder Woman cameo in the film.
Let's hope they have even bigger plans. For as well as Man of Steel did in rebooting the Superman franchise, Tim says a Wonder Woman film could put up Hunger Games-like numbers for Warner.
