Leslie Bibb is the new Wonder Woman. No, she won’t be playing in the much yearned-for TV show or movie that keeps getting yanked from our hopeful grasps. She’ll be playing Wonder Woman in the upcoming film by the Farrelly brothers, which will be made up of various comedy segments. In Movie 43, this skit will take a not-so-serious look at what the personal lives of superheroes might look like if they allowed themselves to be as dysfunctional as the … well … the normal slightly crazed, lovelorn human.
Bibb spoke to Comingsoon.net about the skit:
The Farrelly brothers did this compilation of these shorts and there’s a whole slew of us. Hugh Jackman did one, Gerard Butler, Kate Winslet,” she told us. “Mine is me, Jason Sudeikis and Justin Long and Bobby Cannavale and John Hodgman is the Penguin. And Bobby Cannavale is a jacked up Superman who smokes and we all are these f**ked up superheroes. Like, I’m sleeping with Batman. He won’t call me back. I’m kind of crazy. Kristen Bell is Supergirl and Uma Thurman is Lois Lane or something. And we’re all just dysfunctional superheroes, like superheroes who can’t get a date. We’re all at this speed dating.”
Those who take their DC heroes very seriously might not appreciate the skit as much as those willing to roast the beloved characters for a good laugh:
“I’m Wonder Woman and I have on this amazing wig and the whole getup, which was pretty fantastic. And I’m crazier than bat sh*t. Like, she is really crazy, and so it was really fun because I know Jason [Batman] and he won’t call me back and I love him and he just doesn’t care about me. And so it proved to be a good time. The Farrelly brothers directed one short and they were the main producers on it.”
The movie, directed by Elizabeth Banks, is set to be released by Relativity Media on April 13, 2012.
