Fan art shows what Alexandra Daddario would look like as Wonder Woman.
With Gal Gadot’s future as Diana Prince in serious doubt, fans have been sharing their casting preferences for the DC superhero. Alexandra Daddario is the most popular choice to take up the Wonder Woman mantle, with digital artist Jaxson Derr creating a beautiful rendition of the actress wearing the Amazonian’s iconic regalia.
The image draws inspiration from the pages of 2016’s DC Rebirth era, with Alexandra Daddario wearing a red cape with gold armor fittings. At the time, comic book artist Liam Sharp told Entertainment Weekly the design was created as a practical piece that allowed the character to move more freely. Along with her lasso and bracelets, Wonder Woman also used her sword and shield more frequently.
“Dying to see Wonder Woman wear a cape. Maybe Alexandra Daddario could rock it in the DCU?” Derr said, alongside his digital rendition of the character. Although it’s hard to imagine anyone other than Gadot playing the superhero, The White Lotus star would be an excellent choice. She has a physicality and presence that would suit the role perfectly.
Alexandra Daddario is also no stranger to performing stunts and fight scenes, as evidenced by her roles in films like San Andreas. It’s crucial that whoever takes on the part of Wonder Woman is believable as a skilled warrior. The Mayfair Witches star’s experience in action-oriented roles would undoubtedly make her a convincing choice.
Additionally, Alexandra Daddario has a substantial fan following and is willing to engage with her fans online. She has over 11 million followers on Instagram and frequently uses the platform to share behind-the-scenes glimpses into her life and work. This level of engagement is essential for anyone taking on a high-profile role like Wonder Woman, as it helps to build anticipation and excitement for their movies.
Alexandra Daddario previously expressed an interest in playing a superhero on the big screen, although she didn’t specifically mention Wonder Woman. Speaking to ComicBook.com in 2019, she said, “I would love to be part of any of those films.” But she also noted that it wouldn’t be a big deal if she doesn’t land one of the coveted Marvel or DC roles.
“I don’t focus too much on that stuff, Alexandra Daddario told the publication. “If something makes sense, great. But I try not to think about roles that I don’t have yet, or that I don’t have auditions for yet.” The actress added she takes things as they come. So there isn’t a specific character she’s been dying to play. “Until it’s presented to me, that’s when I start to think about it,” she added.
Gal Gadot’s tenure as Wonder Woman became uncertain when James Gunn and Peter Safran took over DC Studios in October 2022. At the time, The Hollywood Reporter said the pair’s plans do not include a third movie starring the superhero. The biggest reason for scrapping the third installment was to save the $32 million it would cost to keep the actress and director Patty Jenkins on the project.
Additionally, Jenkins’ script treatment didn’t match Gunn and Safran’s new vision for the superhero franchise. While there will be some who argue that no one could ever replace Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Alexandra Daddario would be a fantastic replacement.
