Jessica Biel in talks to play Wonder Woman




Edges out Rachel Bilson in the superhero stakes

Jessica Biel is set to play Wonder Woman.

The I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry star - who is currently dating Justin Timberlake - is said to be in talks with film bosses to star as the sexy superhero in a movie version featuring the Justice League of America, a crime fighting superhero team featured in DC comics.

A representative for Jessica, 25, said: "It's too early to confirm the deal will go ahead."

Warner Bros. also refused to comment on Jessica's involvement in the movie. Babe director George Miller will helm the live-action film which is based on the comic book which brings Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman together, along with a host of other DC superheroes.

Jessica is currently shooting Powder Blue with Oscar-winning actor Forest Whitaker and Ray Liotta.

Jessica is one in a long line of stars tipped to play Wonder Woman. The O.C. star Rachel Bilson was recently said to be taking on the role.

Other actresses rumoured to be donning the famous cape included Catherine Zeta-Jones and Cameron Diaz. Van Helsing actress Kate Beckinsale turned down the part saying she "did not want to embarrass her daughter" by wearing the revealing red, gold and blue outfit.

The character was made famous by Lynda Carter in the classic 70s TV series.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon was originally planning a big screen adaptation, but abandoned the project in February.
