She's awesome. But more I think about her I'd cast Gina as Barda. Scale her up with some movie magic. :)

Gina will give you believable action scenes which is most important thing for summer block buster movie,The acting is secondary as long as it is not so bad it brings down the movie,I watched Haywire Gina can do the job as wonder woman would she be my first choice? No I would pick Jessica Beil who is big enough star to bring people to movie theater and has done enough action movies has look competent in them and she is more than a good enough actor to get the job done but if they pick Carano she would bring a physicality to part that most woman actor couldn't and you need to believe Wonder Woman to be a bad ass if the movie is going to work.

I disagree about the idea of action over acting.
Robert Downey -Iron Man
None of these performances (which are arguably the best superhero portrayals on film) were memorable because of the actor's ability to do backhandsprings holding onto a pair of nunchucks. They are memorable because somehow the actors managed to tap into the essence of what made the character unique and heroic. Also of the actors you mentioned, only one (Stallone) was ever a superhero. And that movie (Judge Dredd) tanked. Arnold did play a villain in the Batman series, but there was no action involved in his performance. A performance that was based pretty much entirely on his accent.

Gina Carano wouldn't get the role even if she were a good actress.
You're going to get a size zero and you're going to like it.

Gina Carano or Mills Knus are both good choices for WW

Theron is too old now. Milla Kunis is too petite.

I'm not pro-Carano but boy do I freakin' LOVE this costume. It's definitely the way to go for a big-screen WW. Wow! It captures all the elements of the classic costume without any cheese factor. Love the leather, love the Greek-inspired battle skirt, love the sandal-themed boots, and especially love how the stars are metallic and fierce. This costume if perfect!
