Though we're not sure where or how they received this news, the UK site Life Style Extra is reporting that Rachel Bilson has nabbed the coveted role of Wonder Woman in Joss Whedon's upcoming superhero flick. As of this minute, Warner Bros. has refused to comment on the rumor, so take this news with a huge grain of shady salt, folks.
However, if true, Bilson, who is best known for her role as Summer Roberts on TheO.C. (where, coincidentally, she once dressed up as Wonder Woman for a sexy seduction scene on the television show), has beat out a number of actresses including Catherine Zeta-Jones,Cameron Diaz, Kate Beckinsale, Charisma Carpenter and, yes, even her OC co-star Mischa Barton. Personally, I've never seen the girl in action, and so I can't form an opinion based solely on her acting ability. Yet, she sure does look
awfully hot the part, and if Whedon happened upon the above-mentioned seduction scene, then perhaps that's what convinced him. So, what do you think?
