Gina Torres appreciates fans who want her to play Wonder Woman

September 19th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

Gina Torres’ Zoe was one of the most popular characters on Joss Whedon’s Firefly series and on the follow up movie Serenity. Torres’ portrayal of a kick ass warrior along with her looks and stature, often brings comparisons to Wonder Woman. Torres has played Wonder Woman before, well she voiced her in the DC Universe Online game. But 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 hope it still happens. Vulture recently interviewed Torres about Suitsand they asked her what she thought about the fan campaign:

“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.”

What do you think?
