Time for a new "Wonder Woman" rumor, fellas! Everyone gather ’round! Fresh-faced hottie Sophia Bush is rumored to be "in the running" for the title role in Joss Whedon‘s (eventually) upcoming adaptation of the very sexy DC Comics character.
Moviehole.net reports a bit beyond what IESB.net was able to discover: That while spending some time on her press junket for "The Hitcher," Ms. Bush was asked about her involvement on "Wonder Woman," to which she basically answered "Maybe." Which isn’t a "no."
Back when Mr. Whedon landed the "WW" gig, he stated that he wanted a fresh newcomer for the career-making super-role, and it seems like Sophia Bush has those qualifications covered. Aside from next weekend’s "The Hitcher," Ms. Bush has appeared in "John Tucker Must Die," "Stay Alive," and "Supercross" — which means she’s more than due for a good movie, and soon.
