MAD MEN‘ star Christina Hendricks is apparently keen to take on the role of WONDER WOMAN after helmer Nicolas Winding Refn named her as the ideal actress for the part!


Refn, who worked with the gorgeous actress on new film ‘DRIVE‘, has been picked to helm a big screen adaptation of the hit TV series – a project which studio execs have discussed for a few years now.


Echoing Refn‘s sentiments, Hendricks said that she would accept the role “in a heartbeat”, if Refn is behind the camera!

In an interview with New York magazine, she says:

“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.

“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.

“I would certainly do what Nicolas wanted to do, and I can only guess what his version would be, but as I grew up with – and am now married to – a comic book fan, I think it’s important to be true to the original comic books, because I know that the fans love every detail and it’s very important to them.

“So I think it would be cool to do that. I look forward to learning more about it, actually. I should probably start reading them, so that if someone were to ask me, I would be fully prepared.”


She’s a fantastic actress and definitely has the looks! But Wonder Woman? Really?
