Fast & Furious 6 and Machete Kills star Michelle Rodriguez, currently rumoured to be in the running for the role of Wonder Woman, has admitted that while she’s a huge fan of the current crop of superheroes, they could be doing something very obvious a lot better.

“I was a big Iron ManSuperman, and big Spider-Man fan,” Rodriguez told Entertainment Weekly. “I love all the DC Comic characters. I love all the great male superheroes. They’re awesome.

“I especially love the rebellious ones like the Punisher. Like when he went head to head with Spider-Man? That was so cool!”

She continued: “There aren’t a lot of chicks that I like at all in comics. As a matter of fact, in order to have one, I’d probably have to invent one. They just don’t exist now.”
