Gina Torres has played Wonder Woman before, but it was just the voice. Though it was neat to have her involved in the DC Universe Online game, many fans would like to see her in the role of the Amazon in a live action film. In fact, they’ve campaigned for it and many hold on to the dream. Vulture recently interviewed Torres about Suits and they asked her what she thought about the fan campaign. Her answer makes my heart smile:
You know, she is a superhero that has been a part of my life since I can remember, and it is incredibly gratifying and heartwarming and wonderful that this campaign continues to have a life — even though it might be maybe three or four people that are keeping it alive. [Big laugh.] I love them! I don’t know how realistic it is. Of course I would love to do that. Who wouldn’t in their right mind? And why not? Well, there are all kinds of reasons why not. But yes, it is a fantasy. And it’s a hoot. It’s a hoot that every now and then, all these years go by, and people are still thinking that I could do that; I could make that wonderful and they will come and see it. I can’t even tell you how that feels.
I think she would make a stellar Diana, and I hope Hollywood listens to the suggestion one of these days.
