What's up with Jessica Biel - is she really not going to play a superhero?

I do love Jessica Biel. She's nice, hot, good actress, and has the most buff body an American actress has without looking butch. There is no way that she is going to waste those muscles on drama and comedy films? There is nothing wrong with her doing comedy and drama, but she needs to be in a superhero movie or headline her own action movie a la Angelina Jolie or Mila Jovovich. If it's not Wonder Woman, which she supposedly already turned down, than what the hell super heroine is she gonna play? Is Hollywood insecure of letting her headline a movie all by herself? Watching Jessica Biel in impressive small action roles such as Blade 3, Texas Chainsaw, Stealth, Home of the Brave is all great and all, but it's the equivalent of watching Arnold Schwarzenegger in Red Sonja and hypothetically not seeing him headline any action films and just ended up doing movies such as Twins and Jingle All the Way. I need to see Biel headlining action movies in every one of her other future flicks. I think Hollywood is afraid of her combination of good ol' fashioned femininity/niceness and her buff bod, something which is lacking in current female action heros - Angelina Jolie (plastic and cold), Kate Beckinsale (beanpole, former skanky actress), Mila Jovovich (beanpole and cold), Hillary Swank (just plain dyky and not that good looking), Jennifer Garner (nice, but not that feminine/sexy), for example...

Either way, this topic is just another reason to post photos of her :

You too? I started to read, was distracted by the allure of a topless Biel in a sink, and stopped. You could have posted the cure for cancer, who started the Chicago fire or undeniable proof of a god and I still don't think anyone would have noticed!

If she really was offered Wonder Woman and turned it down, that might be one of the worst career moves ever.

Maybe. But I think there's better chance they'll drop a turd WW movie and she'll be thanking her lucky stars she passed on it....

If there was a superhero named "SuperBooty" she'd be perfect for the role!

Yes, she is cute and has a nice body, but she is a horrible actress. She should stick to modeling.

Hollywood needs to stop pushing these Jessicas on us.

Alba, Biel, Simpson.......STOP IT WITH THE JESSICAS!

They are horrible actors, not even remotely glamorous, they have absolutely zero chemistry with any leading men.....in short, they are not movie stars. They are walking magazine covers.

They should be resigned to the straight-to-video bin. Throw Keira Knightley in there too and we'll finally be rid of this stupid plague.

Every year or every other year, she seems to do an art movie that seems to get her award nominations.

Jessica Biel takes some amazing paprazzi pictures. Usually those things catch actresses looking off, but she looks just as good if not better in the candid shots as she does in the posed/modeling ones.
