Carpenter keen for Wonder Woman

Which would reunite her with “Angel” macdaddy Joss Whedon


Former “Angel” star – and now resident vixen on “Veronica Mars” – Charisma Carpenter says she’s gunning to play “Wonder Woman” on the big screen. If she does indeed snag the role, it’ll reunite her with her “Angel” and “Buffy” boss, Joss Whedon, who’s penning and picturing the pic.

“We’re working on that”, Carpenter tells TVGuide.com, before backtracking “I’m working on it, I’m working on it….”

Carpenter has done rather well in online polls asking who folks would like to see the snag the role – Nadia Bjorlin and Morena Baccarin were the faves for our poll, but Carpenter did well here too, coming in at third – but says she needs more support, because “..in some other poll — with me, Jessica Biel and Sarah Michelle Gellar — I came in last. Of course, the picture they chose showed me when I was at, like, a children’s benefit covered in [conservative clothing]. I should have been wearing something more Wonder Woman-y!.

“I’m so grateful for that. I’m dying to kick butt as Wonder Woman. Itching to kick butt! In my last year of Angel, I was really pregnant and I couldn’t do any butt-kicking, so I would really like this opportunity to work with Joss and take it to a new level.”
