    Cool, i loved her in John Carter.

  3. True Blood? Really? That was 4 or 5 episodes some 6 years ago. So I take from that she doesn’t do much television.

    Annie Walker vs. Dejah Thoris? Cool!

  5. whydoucare says:

    Finally a smart move, I love this woman and want to see her as Wonder Woman.

  6. too many new characters this season. spreading themselves too thin. or do we just need more women for auggie to sleep with?

  7. But how will Annie get free if the antagonist doesn’t love with her (or is Annie going bi?)?
