A big-screen version of 'Wonder Woman' is sure to be a major studio film with a mandatory PG rating, but the director of some of the bloodiest foreign movies we've ever seen is angling for the job.

That's right, 'Valhalla Rising' director Nicolas Winding Refn is saying he "would love" to take on Wonder Woman and that 'Mad Men's Christina Hendricks (who has a small role in his new film 'Drive') would make the perfect leading lady. (He's not the first one with the idea, by the way.)

At a Q&A at the Empire Big Screen event in London, the Danish filmmaker revealed his superhero ambitions, but there's a slight catch: "Warner Bros. haven't called yet."

Winding Refn is already committed to another big mainstream movie for Warner Bros., 'Logan's Run,' which he sees as a stepping stone. "I think someone said to me in a meeting that if I get 'Logan's Run' right, then I'll get 'Wonder Woman," he said.
