“I was approached for something that wasn’t Marvel, but my son said not to do it.”

She gave out a brief hint about what the role may have been by simply ruling out Marvel. Although she, later on, did add that it was not a DC role either. That may have been a misdirect because according to when she was offered the role, the movie that came out had been a DC movie.

“It was kind of in the place that Louis felt I shouldn’t be… and he was actually right. I saw it when it came out and I was like, ‘Ooo! That’s unfortunate.'”

Upon further intricate analysis via the internet, the conclusion of which hero Bullock had been talking about, turned out to be none other than Wonder Woman. She did not regret her refusal and commended her son for understanding what would fit her right and what wouldn’t.
