On the subject of build, the actress who plays Wonder Woman shouldn't look like the actress who plays Lois could kick the shit out of her....
Haven't we sufficiently debunked this silly objection by now? Haven't we demonstrated adequately that it's commonplace for actors to train extensively and put on muscle when they're hired to play action protagonists? Isn't it obvious at this point that Gadot is going to train heavily for this role, just as Antje Traue trained for Faora, just as Christopher Reeve trained for Superman, just as Christian Bale repeatedly trained for Batman? And since anyone who's paying the slightest bit of attention must know by this point that this objection is total nonsense, aren't you just gratuitously and deliberately insulting this woman out of sheer rudeness now?

Please, everyone, just stop being so damn insulting. I get so sick of online fans and the way they think the proper response to any casting news is to attack, insult, condemn, and demonize the new performer as much as possible. It's twisted fandom into something deeply ugly and hateful and I just get more and more ashamed to be associated with it.
