The two actors in question are being considered for the roles of Ares, the God of War, and Circe, the Sorceress. In DC Comics, Circe features as one of Wonder Woman’s major adversaries. Much like the original Circe from The Odyssey, this Circe is a beautiful sorceress with an unfortunate habit of turning people into animals. Likewise, DC Comics’ Ares is based upon the ancient Greeks’ mythological god of war. Like most of DC’s gods, he possesses super strength, and like his mythological predecessor, he proves to be a master of combat and strategy.
While these talks are still in the preliminary stages, Bean and Green definitely have the chops —and the looks— to pull off these two roles.
Directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman will begin production this November in London, so casting is well on its way to completion. Wonder Woman is reported to be the first in a trilogy.
