This movie is gonna be awesome!!!!! It's going to be made by Wachowski Brothers(Matrix Trilogy, V for Vendetta, Speed Racer) so you know it will be sweet. My choices for Wonder Woman Kate Beckinsale, Megan Gale, or Eliza Dushku.

So you pick who's ever popular and been suggested before. I'm rather glad you're not a casting director.
Meanwhile, that's an awfully huge stretch thinking that it's the Wachowskis.

I think that it's an awfully huge stretch to think that if the Wachowski Brothers made this movie it would be good.
They managed to take a blissfully simple premise from their first Matrix movie and complicate it beyond belief just couple of years later with it's two sequels. For Pete's sake, at least it took George Lucas twenty years to put the kibosh on the Star Wars movies.
V for Vendetta was not that spectacular; one of the many reasons you can see that Alan Moore wants nothing to do with his comics/graphic novels being made into feature films. And Speed Racer? C'mon, now; I know that there is a lot of people out there who have an affinity for the cartoon, and that's cool. But these guys are all flash and bang; make it fast, throw in some special effects and pretty colors, and you have yourself a movie.
Their track record is far, far less than stellar.

The Matrix Trilogy(that means all three) were awesome, & I'm not saying V for Vendetta was breathtaking but it was still a good film. Also I hold little interest of Speed Racer & probably won't see it till it comes to t.v. Also I don't see why people say crap just becuz I picked Megan Gale( I was lookin forward to her playin the part), Also for Beckinsale & Dushku as soon as the movie was announced with Whedon I thought it should have been one of the two.

Beckinsdale & Dushku both chicks are way the hell off as Wonder Woman ones too skinny the other too short. Beckinsdale hot but no Wonder Woman.
I haven't seen a strong leading lady that's saying I'm a woman and I can kick your ass since Xena.
So best of luck finding the right lady for Wonder Woman.

The Wachowski Brothers "track record" is just fine, in my opinion. All of the Matrix movies are good films; the sequels aren't to everyone's tastes but few sequels are. I think they're great, specifically because thet're not the original, and I think many fans expected the exact same movie.
V for Vendetta was awesome, just with Hugo Weaving's performance alone...but the Brother's just penned the script, they didn't direct. I'm not gonna prejudge Speed Racer before it comes out.
Back to topic here, I wonder if the Studio picked the 'WW II era script' because the Nazi stuff worked well in Hellboy? In any case, I'll be happy when the movie's done, and Justice League is out of development-hell. DC has so many good characters, it's almost a shame that we're about to watch the sixth Batman film, and the seventh-or-eighth Superman film is chugging along, and all the rest of DC's properties are left all but ignored. It'll be nice to see them get some play.

I would like to add a couple of new names for the role of Wonder Women and they are Rose Byrne from "Damages". Apart from the fact that she is beautiful, she is also in my opinion a great actress and I think she could bring a 2000 year old Amazon princess to life. Also I think having a relative unknown play the character would work as an advantage. Other female orientated superheroe films usually don't work in my opinion because they have a face that is to well known playing the title role.
The other actress is Ali Larter from "Heroes". Again, she is stunning and also a wonderful actress. Everything I said about Rose Byrne I say in equal measure for Ali Larter. They both have the Wonder Women look about them. I think they have mass appeal right across the board with prospective fans.
