Jaimie Alexander Talks Losing Role of ‘Wonder Woman’ to Gal Gadot
It was never going to happen.
In an interview with Variety, Jaimie Alexander discusses about DC’s Wonder Woman role before it was finally decided for Gal Gadot.
“I’m excited to see what she’s going to do with the role,” she told Variety. “I was one of a few people that were an obvious choice for Wonder Woman, but it was never going to happen. I’m contracted with Marvel and it would (be) strange.”
Keeping her spirits high, she covets her part in the Marvel Universe as Sif.
“Sif, in her way, is Marvel’s Wonder Woman,” she said. “They’re both ethereal and have armor and a sword, and have special abilities; the physicality of the role is very similar. The thing I really enjoy about Marvel is that they start with a character first and all the explosions and costumes, the glitz and glam, are secondary to who the actual character is deep down. That’s something I haven’t really been able to find with DC Comics. I know that’s a bold statement, but it’s been my experience.”
No worries though. Alexander will continue her part as Sif in 2017’s “Thor: Ragnarok” and keeping really busy with the television surprise hit “Blindspot.”
As for the actual Wonder Woman, we’ll all be checking out Gal Gadot in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” on March 25.
