'The Hobbit's' Evangeline Lilly Was Almost Cast in Joss Whedon's 'Wonder Woman'

Back in early 2000s an up and coming actress by the name of Evangeline Lilly was thrust into the spotlight by a little show called LOST. During which she reveals that she met with Warner Bros for a feature film version of Wonder Woman (Now played by Gal Gadot). Here is what she said during a press junket for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug:

"I actually went in and met on Wonder Woman at one point, before the thing fell apart. That was early, that was first season of 'LOST' before I went, wait a minute, I don't know if I want to do this!"
 Around 2005 was the time Joss Whedon (The Avengers) was finished filming cult classic Serenity and was prepping work on Wonder Woman which was eventually turned down by WB. Would you have loved a Joss Whedon Wonder Woman movie starring Evangeline Lilly?!

Wonder Woman will next be seen in Batman vs Superman in 2015
