Megan Fox to play Wonder Woman?
The site wonder-who.com claims to reveal that Megan Fox will be starring in a new Wonder Woman movie. The site looks professionally made. Someone obviously put some effort into it. But according to JoBlo.com, Warner Brothers has issued a denial, insisting that no such movie is planned.

So why did someone spend so much time creating the site? I have no idea. A really over-eager Megan Fox fan perhaps? Or maybe a studio was testing the response to the concept?

she can't even act. She's only going to ruin Wonder Woman's legacy.

anyway there has been failed plans to bring WW oscreen. Josh Whedon quit a few years ago due to creative differences and the project doesn't look like it's gonna happen anytime soon.

Apparently Australian model Megan Gale is going to play WW in the Justice League movie, could that be part of the confusion ?

Yeah, it's a hoax. Though apparently she has met with people at Aspen Comics about possibly playing Fathom. I can't fathom how bad that movie would be...

i can't stand that picture, firstly because its really badphoto shop but also because her hairline is disturbingly high. if this was a legitimate attempt for a studio to gauge audience response to her, i think they would have done some better photoshopping

Judging from the picture, her "clothing" looks like it was rendered using technology dating from the Dire Straits "Money For Nothing" video days. Reminds me of videogames I used to play.

Just over eager fan fic maybe?

We have an interview with the hoaxster over at http://pfunn.com/?p=324. By the way, the hairline was unchanged (check out the original photo at pfunn.com or at Wonder-Who.com).
