Geena Davis wants a role in the 'Wonder Woman' sequel

(ABC News) -- Oscar-winner Geena Davis is no stranger to kicking butt on screen.
 
The actress, who's starred in action films such as "Cutthroat Island" and "The Long Kiss Goodnight," wants in on the sequel to the blockbuster movie "Wonder Woman."
 
"I met [director] Patty Jenkins and I told her, 'I’m sure you're going to make a sequel and if you need anybody Amazonian, there's always me. I’m available,'" she told Variety.
 
"Wonder Woman" was a box office phenomenon, opening with an estimated $103.1 million, Warner Bros. said -- the largest haul for a female-directed feature in history. It bested record-holder, "Fifty Shades of Grey," by $15 million. The film, starring Gal Gadot at the title character, also had the biggest opening for a female-led comic adaptation.
 
Davis, 61, said she "loved" the film, and wants roles in more action films, or even a TV series.
 
"My dream goal would be to have a streaming show where I could be a bada--," she said.
 
Asked if her films inspired "Wonder Woman," Davis said, "I would never claim credit for those movies."
