Jaimie Alexander Talks Losing Role of â€˜Wonder Womanâ€™ to Gal Gadot
It was never going to happen.
In an interview with Variety, Jaimie Alexander discusses about DCâ€™s Wonder Woman role before it was finally decided for Gal Gadot.
â€œIâ€™m excited to see what sheâ€™s going to do with the role,â€ she told Variety. â€œI was one of a few people that were an obvious choice for Wonder Woman, but it was never going to happen. Iâ€™m contracted with Marvel and it would (be) strange.â€
Keeping her spirits high, she covets her part in the Marvel Universe as Sif.
â€œSif, in her way, is Marvelâ€™s Wonder Woman,â€ she said. â€œTheyâ€™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. Thatâ€™s something I havenâ€™t really been able to find with DC Comics. I know thatâ€™s a bold statement, but itâ€™s been my experience.â€
No worries though. Alexander will continue her part as Sif in 2017â€™s â€œThor: Ragnarokâ€ and keeping really busy with the television surprise hit â€œBlindspot.â€
As for the actual Wonder Woman, weâ€™ll all be checking out Gal Gadot in â€œBatman v Superman: Dawn of Justiceâ€ on March 25.
