Elena Anaya Confirms She Is Playing A Villain In ‘Wonder Woman’

Up until about an hour ago, DC fans looking forward to Wonder Woman knew Spanish actress Elena Anaya would be in the film but we weren’t sure just who exactly she would be playing – or at the very least, which side she would be playing for. In the first Wonder Woman trailer, Anaya was seen with a creepy mask, strongly hinting she would be playing a villain, but nothing had been confirmed one way or another.

In a new Spanish interview with website SenseCine, Anaya goes ahead to confirm what most had been speculating, that she would in fact be playing a villain. Check out the quote below, translated via Batman-News.com:

“Well, it was a small role in this big ensemble, but it is an important character in the story. It’s directed by Patty Jenkins, then there’s Gal Gadot as our main lead, Chris Pine as her co-lead and I’m going to be… a big nightmare for the two of them”.

She did note her role was small, so we know that even though she will not be playing the main villain, she will apparently still manage to be a thorn in our heroes sides throughout the film.

Who do you think Elena Anaya will be playing in Wonder Woman? Make sure to sound off below. Also, check out Anaya in the official trailer if you have not yet seen it (or even if you have):

Jack of some trades, master of some others. That saying never really made a lot of sense to me.

    Gal gadot cant carry a film, shes not well known enough nor can she act. Heck she cant even speak english and sounds like ivan drago when she speaks. Lol

    0/4 another rotten rating. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0693d8c879f3497b5dc6e5d67e26ecac26dde14b6ced2442c1a664efb175d51d.png

      I don’t know if being well known enough is a big deal. Wonder Woman is a wildly popular character. So a named actress isn’t needed to carry the film. I mean not a lot of people knew who Christian Bale was before Batman Begins.

      Your other two points are valid. She isn’t the greatest actress and an accent can be a hindrance unless the actor has a great on screen presence (see Arnold).

      • ClownPrinceOfTroll

        Yeah, but bale was respected and known to be a great sctor,although he hadnt been in anything big as batman at the time. There were enough great films he been in to not worry to much about it. Cant say the same for gal.

      • SAMURAI36

        LOL, accent. There’s nothing wrong with Gal’s accent. Half of Hollywood has an accent. Besides, I don’t know how it hasn’t occurred to everyone, that WW is supposed to have an accent.
