Wonder Woman Cast News

One of the many bonus features on the Batman: Gotham Knight DVD will be a sneak peek at the upcoming Wonder Woman animated feature. This will be the fourth film to be made by DC Universe Animated Features and Warner Bros Animation and is projected to be released in the spring of 2009. As always with this line of movies, the film will be rated PG-13.

The plot of Wonder Woman is supposed to be based on the Gods and Mortals story arc that George PĂ©rez wrote after he relaunched the character in 1987.

We already have been told that Keri Russel (Felicity) and Nathan Fillion (Firefly) have been cast as Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor. The bonus feature reveals that Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2) will play Ares, Virginia Madsen (Sideways) will play Hippolyta, and Rosario Dawson (Sin City) will play Artemis.

Some of these cast members are no strangers to voicing superheroes! Just take a look at the roles they have already played:

  • Nathan Fillion - Vigilante (Justice League)
  • Alfred Molina - King Gustav (Justice League - I know, not actually a superhero, but whatever), Doctor Octopus (Spider-Man 2)
  • Virginia Madsen - Silver Sable (Spider-Man: the New Animated Series), Dr. Sarah Corwin (Justice League), Roulette (Justice League), Arella (Teen Titans)
