Eva Green and Sean Bean Rumored To Play Villains in Wonder Woman

Warner Bros. has been casting big name talents for their shared DC movie universe. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice alone has Ben Affleck, Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Adams, Jeremy Irons, Laurence Fishburne, and more. Even Suicide Squad has brought in some big stars like Jared Leto and Will Smith. If Heroic Hollywood's latest rumor is true, Gal Gadot could be facing off against two more big names in her solo Wonder Woman movie.

The new report claims that the studio is eyeing Eva Green and Sean Bean for the roles of Circe and Ares, respectively. In Greek mythology, Circe is a powerful sorceress and Ares is the God of War, and I think both stars could pull off these roles brilliantly. They're considered to be Wonder Woman's biggest villains. If Eva Green ended up actually playing the villain, it looks like I'm going to be rooting against Gal Gadot in the movie. I thought Green was amazing as the villainous Artemisia in 300: Rise of An Empire, and if Sean Bean was cast, I expect his character to die.

Patty Jenkins will direct Wonder Woman from Jason Fuchs' script, and the movie is scheduled to be released in theaters on June 23, 2017.
