According to Ain’t It Cool, the voices of Ares, Hippolyta and Artemis have been leaked from advance copies of Batman: Gotham Knight, which has a 10-minute feature on the upcoming direct-to-DVD Wonder Woman animated movie. Hit the jump to see if you agree with the casting.

Kerri Russell as Wonder Woman

This we all knew. I like the choice in an animated film, but I’m glad they didn’t cast her in a live-action version.

Nathan Fillion as Steve Trevor

This is another casting choice many of us knew already. And before you rag on the comic version of Steve I chose, let me just challenge you to find a picture of Steve Trevor that doesn’t make him look like a relic of the Golden Age. Since this film is going to be adapting the George Perez relaunch, we can pretty much count on Steve being a completely competent man.

Virginia Madsen as Hippolyta

I think this choice is great. I’ve been wondering what she was planning to do following up the short-lived Ray Liotta TV show, Smith. I think she’s a great actress, and her voice is perfect for this role.

Alfred Molina as Ares

Again, they choose an actor who you wouldn’t immediately think of, but after hearing his name attached, you can’t believe you didn’t think of it either. If Alfred does the job we all know he’s capable of, this may just be the best version of Ares we’ve seen to date.

Rosario Dawson as Artemis

Honest to God, that was the best picture I could find of Artemis. I regret that it’s so T n’ A, but you’ll get over it. I’m really glad more and more respectable actors are working on these DC animated films. This is the one time I regret only getting the voice of the actor and not the live-action version. Oh well, can’t win ‘em all.

While I can’t wait for this, or Gotham Knight for that matter, I think it’s funny Marvel’s live-action films are blowing up, and their animated movies have so far been lackluster. DC is virtually the complete opposite (with the exception of the Batman franchise). Here’s hoping more success to both.
