With speculation swirling that Warner Bros. is set to release a "Justice League" movie in 2017, actress Olivia Munn is addressing rumors that she'll join Superman and Batman on screen as sexy heroine, Wonder Woman.
"It would be great... if the producers could make Wonder Woman an Asian-American, but that's probably not what they would do," the 33-year-old said, addressing her heritage during an interview in Singapore. "I don't know a lot of Asian-American women who are getting great opportunities yet, and the other actresses [vying for the role] are probably really famous and Hollywood tends to go for the girls who are already in the big movies."
While Munn, who currently stars in HBO's "The Newsroom," admits she may not be A-list enough for the role, she does have passion for the character.
"I love Wonder Woman as much as I love Batman but obviously a little bit more because she's such a strong female figure and there aren't that many strong female superheroes out there," she said.
In fact, Munn showed her appreciation for the comic book heroine when she dressed in her famous red, white and blue costume during an appearance at Comic Con in 2009. While she says the experience made her feel "strong and invincible," she also confessed it was slightly awkward.
"I dressed up as Wonder Woman one year and that was my last; it's not comfortable to dress up in front of all those people," she said. "Costumes for superheroes; man or woman, are always very skimpy, so it's not something that you want to wear with a lot of people around you."
Munn has also paid homage to the character with her book, titled "Suck It, Wonder Woman!: The Misadventures of a Hollywood Geek."
"I did not want to name it that, and I actually did not agree with it because I love Wonder Woman, [but] it worked out well because the name was so silly that it became memorable and helped my book sell so I stopped complaining about the name."
Her love of the super heroine has reportedly gained Munn a huge fan following that is rooting for her to take on the role.
Details about the "Justice League" film have yet to be confirmed.
