Could Wonder Woman be facing off against two greek legends, played by two geek legends? Possibly…
Word on the street is that Warner Bros are pursuing Sean Bean and Eva Green to play Ares, the God of War, and Circe the Sorceress. In the comics, the duo are among Wonder Woman’s (Gal Gadot) top tier villains.
Eva Green is, off course, blowing our minds in Penny Dreadful and Sean Bean will probably be best known right now as Ned Stark in Game of Thrones. The two have been major Bond characters in the past too with Green playing Bond’s love interest Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale and Bean playing fellow double-o – and bond’s friend – Alec Trevelyan.
We love the idea of these two in these roles… but the big question is, will Sean Bean survive this one?
Only time will tell.
Production on Wonder Woman kicks off in November in London.
