Soon Tobey Maguire’s ”Spider-Man” might not be Hollywood’s only superhero: Sandra Bullock’s spokeswoman says Miss Congeniality has met with Warner Bros. about starring in a feature version of Wonder Woman. But showbiz’s bustiest brunet bruisers aren’t giving up without a fight. Former warrior princess Lucy Lawless tells EW she’d love to lasso the role (famously embodied by Lynda Carter in the ’70s TV series), provided the character was a more interesting ”flawed hero.” And wrestler Chyna is positively pugilistic in her pursuit: ”Come hell or high water, I’m going to make them notice me.” What exactly does Chyna most admire about the superheroine’s feminine mystique? ”Her red lipstick and beautiful black hair,” the wrestler says. Gloria Steinem she’s not.
