Today is Tuesday! and if you’ve been coming here for any length of time, you know that, for most people Tuesday is just the day after Monday, but for you it means that “Time to Vote Tuesday” is here!! YES!!!
What is “Time to Vote Tuesday”?:
“Time to Vote Tuesday” is the session of fun weekly polls which spark thought, debate, and intrigue! Each poll closes in a week with results posted on the following ‘TVT’!
Last week’s poll, “The Best of the Bad“ has now closed with 69 votes. Be sure to visit and see which villains were voted as the best movie villains of all time! Click HERE.
I wish to thank you everyone that voted in last week’s polls, shared it with others, and made it fun with your comments!
In this edition of ‘TVT’ this week’s poll, entitled “Wondrous Women”, takes a look at proposing starlets for the ever-evasive Wonder Woman movie.
Comic book superhero films are ever popular. Batman, Spider-Man, The Avengers, Superman, etc., etc. Of course, D.C. Comics has had their successes with Superman and Batman, but not with too many others of their superhero icons (Green Lantern. Jonah Hex. Steel, anyone??).
Remember when the hoaxed film starring Megan Fox was the “weekly rave”?
Well, whether or not a Wonder Woman movie ever gets made (there’s been so much back and forth over the years for numerous reasons), CinemaBlend presented an interesting article last week entitled “5 Reasons Joss Whedon and Scarlett Johansson should do Wonder Woman next.” and I really liked the article (not that I’m biased or anything with my love for Ms. Scarlett!) 🙂
After contemplating it, I compiled a list of actresses whom I think would be great considerations for the role of the Amazonian princess. Below you will find some quick info about each of the considerations followed by today’s poll asking you to choose from the list. You can make your decision for any reason you wish and include it in a comment to add to the debate. But be warned…petty reasons such as “she’s too short” or “she’s too old” will be quickly shot down in flames. Why? Because anything is possible in this day and age. Observe:
- Chris Evans played both muscular Cpt. America and skinny Steve Rogers.
- Elijah Wood is only 5 inches shorter than Sir Ian McKellan in real life. He is not really Hobbit-sized
- Robert Pattinson (age 26) plays a teenage vampire in highschool.
So…come up with some REAL reasons! 😉
