Wonder Woman Gal Gadot has started filming her standalone DC movie. Should a problem arise in the production, there is an actress who may replace Gadot.
Modern Family star Sofia Vergara sparked speculation of a possible Wonder Woman role after she dressed up in the DC superheroine costume recently.
Vergara shared on Instagram several photos of her in a Wonder Woman costume. The actress teased that she dresses as Wonder Woman in a secret Modern Family project. Entertainment Weekly wrote it could be for the show’s Halloween episode. Apparently, it is for a secret project in Modern Family. In the photos, Vergara was seen sporting the Amazon warrior’s classic outfit—similar to the one that Lynda Carter wore in the 1970s show.
The Forbes 2016 World Highest Paid Actress on TV has been playing the role of Gloria Delgado-Pritchett since the Emmy-winning show debuted in 2009.
Modern Family Season 8 premieres on Wednesday (Sept. 21) at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.

Meanwhile, controversies continue to plague the forthcoming DC movie. The most recent is that DC Comics and a fast food chain are reportedly clashing over the redesigned Wonder Woman’s W logo.
A Whataburger spokesperson, however, denied the war rumors between them and DC as indicated in some comic book blogs. The San Antonio-based burger chain clarified that the two companies are currently in a “friendly trademark discussion”. Whataburger said this is to ensure that both DC and their legal rights and interests are protected, Chron reported.
Whataburger noted that it has been using its “Flying W” logo since 1972.
The Amazon warrior appeared in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice this year. Director Patty Jerkins had assured fans that the Wonder Woman plot is not a mess. A disgruntled ex-Warner Bros. employee earlier claimed that the movie is another mess like Batman v Superman.
Aside from Gadot, the movie stars Chris Pine, Robin Wright and Connie Nielsen.
