Gina Carano stars in the upcoming Fast & Furious 6 which has already started to break records overseas.

She also happens to be a huge fan-favorite to play Wonder Woman, especially with the heat surrounding the Justice League movie starting to pick up.

Plus, Gina Carano is the girlfriend to new Superman, Henry Cavill, who stars in the Man of Steel.

The Collider caught up with the Texas native to talk about Fast & Furious, but managed to squeeze in a question about Wonder Woman.

Interestingly enough, while Carano says she hasn't auditioned for any superhero parts, she at least says there have been talks.

No, I haven’t done any auditions.  There have been talks about some different characters.  That’s a dream to put on a costume and be a whole other level of character, but I think that … we’re looking at a whole bunch of different things right now.  There’s always the possibility that some day I will be a comic book character that I’ll play and I’m not sure who that’s going to be.  It would be very fun and fascinating.  We’ll just have to see where my career is going to go.  There’s so much I want to do.  I love emotions, I love drama, I love comedy and I also want to take action up to another level, I love comics.  I’m just reading some scripts and putting myself out there and seeing what’s attractive to me.  We’ll kind of figure out where this goes.  It’s going to be interesting and keeps it very exciting, I’ll tell you! [Laughs]

As we see, Carano mentions "character" in the plural, any ideas besides Wonder Woman who the actress could play?

Fast & Furious 6 also gets released this week, and Gina Carano spilled the beans on Dwayne Johnson, her co-star in the movie, in that the Rock has military trained body guards. 

He surrounds himself with good people from his hair and make-up to his bodyguards, they’re some of my favorite people to this day, I just love being their friends.
