10 Oscar winners who would make good superheroes or supervillains
The 52-year-old Swinton - an Oscar winner for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in the 2007 thriller "Michael Clayton" - has an otherworldly quality that would make her perfect for playing one of the New Gods in a "Wonder Woman" movie based on DC's current "New 52" revamp. We'd love to see the actress taking on the role of Big Barda, an Apokoliptian warrior with superhuman strength and endurance who is a master at the art of hand-to-hand combat. With her larger-than-life size (Swinton is 5'11") and powerful on-screen presence, the gifted actress is a natural fit for the alien immortal.
