Here's What Meryl Streep Looks like as Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady

All right, England: If we're going to accept a British Superman, then let's see how you like an American Margaret Thatcher! Oh? You're okay with it as long as it's Meryl Streep? Okay, yes, based on the first photo of Streep from the upcoming Thatcher bio-pic The Iron Lady (which is not a new Marvel franchise... yet) Streep actually does look like she fits well in the role of the famed Prime Minister. (The film details the days before she took the UK to war in the Falklands.) Phyllida Lloyd, who directed Streep in Mamma Mia!, is behind the camera on this one, but to my knowledge it does not contain musical numbers. Too bad! Take a better look at Streep -- and compare her to the real Thatcher -- after the jump.


And now, the real Margaret Thatcher:
