Gina Carano, known to MMA fans already has been making a name in movies the last couple years. After appearing with Henry Cavill, Wonder Woman rumors are beginning to fly.

Talk of Gina Carano as Wonder Woman have followed her from the time she first started pushing into the movie business. A question dropped casually within interviews, even while promoting her last film Haywire long before an official Wonder Woman movie seemed like it could even happen. Everytime asked, she expressed interest in the role if they were willing to approach it somewhat realistically (for a superhero movie), especially in the issue of fighting.
The rumors have really kicked into high gear recently when she was spotted hanging out with Man of Steel's Henry Cavill at a charity event. Carano wasn't part of the event though and was only accompanying Cavill, both were seen to be a bit touchy as well. Perhaps they are only dating, but it hasn't stopped the speculation that they met on the set of the new Superman movie and she may cameo in Man of Steel, perhaps even appearing at the end in a teaser similar to how Marvel has teased future movies. We know Amy Adams is playing Lois, but will she be Superman's love interest or just professional competition for Clark? Will the movie mirror what we see happening currently in the DC Universe with Superman and Wonder Woman catching each other's eye.
Fans, especially of the comic book variety, are never short on opinions, even if they have to form them before seeing whatever it is they are judging; but this reporter likes the idea of Carano as Wonder Woman. Even though these heroes have powers to provide them with their super strength, I don't want a Wonder Woman that has biceps and thighs thinner than my wrists anymore than I want a Superman built like Christian Bale from the Machinist.
