Whedon says Angelina Jolie is Wonder Woman? Joss Whedon is looking for Angelina Jolie to play Wonder Woman. Whedon, who beings shooting The Avengers in early 2011, told Entertainment Weekly about who he would like to see as the famous superheroine. “For me, Wonder Woman was basically Angelina Jolie,” Whedon said. “She spends a lot of time flying around. She works in a lot of different countries. She’s very global. And she’s appalled by the way people treat each other.” The Avengers is scheduled to be released on May 4, 2012.
