Rumors We Love: Eva Green and Sean Bean Possible Villains for 'Wonder Woman' Movie


It was only a matter of time before the fabulous Eva Green (Casino Royale, 300: Rise of an Empire) started to get attention from superhero movie casting directors. The fearless and fierce French actress is on top of Warner Bros' wish-list to star as a villain in the upcoming 'Wonder Woman' movie. Also on that list is fan favorite Sean Bean to play another villain.

According to sources at Heroic Hollywood, this hot rumor hasn't been confirmed but supposedly Green and Bean are being "eyed" for the roles of Circe the Sorceress and Ares the God of War respectively. 

Warner Bros is aiming high with these hopeful casting choices as both lend a huge amount of talent and genre-cred. Green has consistently given powerful and electrifying performances including her current role as a spiritualist on Showtime's Penny Dreadful. She's played a sorceress before as Morgan le Fay on 2011's miniseries Camelot. No stranger to comic book based movies as she's starred in 300: Rise of an Empire and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

If anyone can pull off being a worthy adversary to Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman, it's Eva Green hands down. 

As for Sean Bean, if you've seen a movie in the last 25 years you'll recognize the face, most notably as Boromir of The Lord of the Rings trilogy. If you're a fan of HBO's Game of Thrones you know him as Ned Stark. Bean is a phenomenal actor and would be a great choice to join the DC cinematic universe. 

Even if the studio doesn't score these amazing actors it does sound like the film is embracing the Greek mythology that played such a big part of the rebooted comic bok series in the New 52 relaunch. Wonder Woman had major conflicts with her powerful half-siblings.

This is still all rumor so be cautious as we'll update the story as we get more information. We love this rumor though and hope it becomes true.

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …

REVIEW: 'Death or Glory' #2 by Rick Remender and Bengal

After a raucous debut, 'Death and Glory' takes a weird turn. Like a really weird turn. Imagine David Lynch and Quentin Tarantino had a baby and out came out issue two of this new series from Rick Remender and Bengal. The question is is that a good or bad thing?


DEATH OR GLORY #2  
Writer: Rick Remender Artist: Bengal Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: June 6, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
With a botched heist job, a bullet in her side, and all her money gone, Glory wrestles with what to do next. The cargo her ex-husband was trafficking wasn't drugs but people and after putting them all safely on a bus to Arizona, she's broke and being attended to by one of the Brazilians that stayed behind. Her scheme was pretty straight-forward - rob the money that the dirty sheriff was going to transport and use it for her dad's surgery. Easy peasy. Then it all went to hell as the sheriff recognized her, she dropped the money, and now no one is happy, not the sheri…

Fitness Women in Superhero Body Paint by J.M. Manion

J.M. Manion has long been a successful photographer covering the fitness and bodybuilding industry. He has photographed some of the strongest, well-defined physiques on the planet.

It's no wonder he sometimes incorporates superhero cosplay and body paint into photo shoots. Here are just some examples of his work:
