Okay, am I losing any sleep over who’s going to play Wonder Woman?

No, not really. But Joss Whedon is writing it, so I want it to succeed, because the more that Whedon succeeds the more likely we are to see more episodes of Firefly or a sequel to Serenity.

So… with what little I know of the Wonder Woman comics, I can tell you this: Rachel Bilson is no Wonder Woman. Bison is little. She’s a kid. Wonder Woman?

Who would I cast?

Okay, I know this is a stretch, because it would mean a significant shift… but…

Gina Torres : http://imdb.com/name/nm0868659/

She’s got the height, the strength, the power, the long black curls, the presence, the personality… She’s tough as nails. She’s married to Lawrence Fishburne, and could shout down a villain with the badass power of Samuel L. Jackson. Her formidable talents are being wasted on that new television series “Standoff” (which just makes the pain of “Firefly”‘s cancellation that much worse).

And she would look dynamite in the costume.

I hereby nominate Gina Torres.
