Olivia Munn can be currently seen on HBO's Newsroom as Sloan Sabbith where the actress recently commented on Wonder Woman while attending a press tour in Singapore.
Oliva Munn, a Playboy covergirl, was also a co-host on Attack of the Show! where she was known for teasing the fanboys.
She also penned the book Suck It, Wonder Woman: The Misadventures Of A Hollywood Geek which is a collection of essays as well as photos of Olivia Munn in various costumes and guises.
Of course, per the book's title and as Olivia Munn has cosplayed as Wonder Woman, she gets asked about the character quite often.
Olivia Munn recounts her latest Wonder Woman escapade on the Tonight Show With Jay Leno as she was asked about playing the Amazonian Princess by the Singapore press (Munn is of Chinese descent on her mother's side) as well asked if there ever will be an Asian Wonder Woman.
Olivia Munn offers that she probably won't play Wonder Woman as they will be looking for a bigger-named actress.
She told the Boston Herald a similar response back in July:
It would be great, though, if the producers could make Wonder Woman an Asian-American, but that's probably not what they would do," Munn said. "I don't know a lot of Asian-American women who are getting great opportunities yet, and the other actresses (vying for the role) are probably really famous and Hollywood tends to go for the girls who are already in the big movies.
I love Wonder Woman as much as I love Batman but obviously a little bit more because she's such a strong female figure and there aren't that many strong female superheroes out there.
