I went with Wests WW because I see that happening more than a zatarna film. A shame too, both were cast so well.

While I'd be more interested in seeing West's story brought to the small screen, I just don't think I'd want to see a Monaghan Wonder Woman. I just can't see her kicking ass, and chopping off Hades monster heads with an axe. Plus, I don't really see Soderbergh directing it.

Iggy on the other hand provided a strong cast all around, and I'd pay to see a Favreau take on a Zatanna story.

^She's alright, but I think Iggy made a bold move casting someone a bit more... exotic to portray Zatanna. It works to his advantage to have someone a bit different in a role, as it separates them every other incarnation.

Iggy gets my vote.

Director Steven Soderbergh continually brings together a great cast with smart plots that often results in tremendous performances from all. He's tackled almost every genre and is even friendly enough to help direct other people's movies(The Hunger Games).

+ YouTube Video

Soderbergh was the runner up to direct my Justice League movie in case someone else had picked Aronofsky. I agree that it's an unusual choice for a Wonder Woman film rooted in Greek mythology, but it's not a bad choice. The cast is alright, Emma Watson as Zola is a great idea. One minor complaint is that Apollo shouldn't be ten years older than Zeus. They're immortal gods, so their physical age doesn't represent their true age, but still, this seems a bit off.

Yeah, West owns this round.

This one is probably the toughest decision out of the entire line-up. I like both lists, but right now I'm probably leaning towards Iggy. I had originally wanted Shahi for Reese, as a nod to her role in the short-lived tv show Life [one of my all time favorite shows BTW] in my Grifter cast, but I could see her playing Zatanna....

Never have cared about either character too much, but I like the potential of the WW movie more. W.West gets my vote.

Sarah Shahi provides the spunk to play Z plus has the attitude to be able to handle her own

When it comes to Ralph Phines, the man is a scary sob when it comes to playing villains, so while Brother Night isn't known Ralph Fines will make it known.

Chris Evans has the charm plus the intellect to play the detective that is thrust into a world of magic.

Liam Neeson need I say more for a father figure?

and of course Jon Favreu's credentials, (Iron Man, Elf, Zatura) all speak for themselves.

Go Z

Liam Neeson is good, but as Giovanni? He's overqualified. Like Al Pacino as a security officer.

And you story sucks!

Dude, your casting of Cate Blanchett as Hippolyta sucks more than just about anything in Iggy's draft.

Liam Neeson has played far lesser roles than Giovanni Zatara

While my story may not be thought provoking as Brian Azz's Wonder Woman story, it does provide a nice entertaining time at the movies

Pre-Flashpoint, I'd agree. But in the New 52, she's a perfect match.

What is with you kids and your Oded Fehr obsessions? First he was supposed to be Dr. Strange, and now he's Giovanni Satara. Make up your minds.

And I just can't see Cate Blanchett playing an Amazonian. She'd have to work out a bit before I could take her seriously as a warrior queen.

Do you read superhero comics? When was the last time you saw a superhero woman that was bulky? Cate is skinny yes, but so is 99% of the women in comics. Go back and read some recent Wonder Woman comics and check ALL the Amazons body frames. They may have muscles but they are all scrawny.

But I think JV doesn't see Warriors Queen when he see's Cate.

Magic is for babies. Steven Soderbergh's WONDER WOMAN is for adults who like sex, action, sex, drama and sex.

Coming from a Harry Potter fan, that's pretty hypocritical.

Magic is for everyone

I would like to make movies to appeal to everybody
