Re: Gal Gadot cast as Wonder Woman In ‘Batman Vs. Superman’

And as many people probably thought Green Hornet was a sequel to Green Lantern. They've got a new Batman in the suit, now a Wonder Woman cast, that may be enough one film trying to get a franchise rolling. Not impossible to introduce others, but I wouldn't expect it.

According to Variety the movie will also introduce the Flash, although it's not clear yet how big the part will be.

For some people, even if they know that Green Hornet isn't a sequel to Green Lantern, for all they know of either it might as well be, and they might pigeonhole both into the same genre, based on name alone, and maybe a still image or two from each, and understandably so.

They're apt to ask why they don't have Thor or Iron Man in this if they want a bunch of heroes.

No kidding. I've heard that sort of question before. It made me facepalm, before facepalm was a word in common use.

Wonder Woman seems to be an object of fetish to a large slice of her fandom.
To be fair and without defending it, that's been there from the bginning.
Yeah, William Moulton Marston, the guy who created Wonder Woman, was a bondage fetishist and some of that made its way into the early comics.
I keep waiting for somebody to make an "Ed Wood"-style biopic about Marston. With maybe Johnny Depp as Marston?

Re: Gal Gadot cast as Wonder Woman In ‘Batman Vs. Superman’

Let's say you're a Marvel Studios exec (Kevin Feige or whoever). Does the news about Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman make a difference? Do you now want Marvel to get their own A-list superheroine (whoever that might be) on film? Or is all of this really not a big deal?

FYI: My next door neighbor got Green Lantern and Green Hornet mixed up. He rented one expecting the other.

Boy, was he confused!

In this context, I don't think it's fair to call Wonder Woman an A-lister, until she gets her own film. Therefore, when it comes to female heroes, I'm thinking that Marvel Studios is still well ahead and will be for some time, with Black Widow, who as far as I'm concerned has been smashing.

Re: Gal Gadot cast as Wonder Woman In ‘Batman Vs. Superman’

Kevin Feige and Joss Whedon have both already spoken of their desire to give a big-name Marvel heroine her own movie. It's a matter of the right character and the right script. Does this make them accelerate those plans? Who can say?

Based on nothing but my gut And Melissa Rosenberg's original proposal, I think they are going to use Carol Danvers in the Jessica Jones series. It would be cool if Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (assuming it gets a second season) did a Guardians of the Galaxy tie-in where exposure to a Kree object gives Agent Carol Danvers super-powers just in time for Captain Marvel to appear in AKA Jessica Jones/Jewel/Alias or whatever they wind up calling it.

There aren't any.

The name recognition with their non-derivative (She-Hulk, Spider-Woman, etxc... ) females is poor.

Not any kind of deal.

Marvel has the momentum and the big franchise already. DC's got Batman, Batman with superpowers (Man of Steel) and someone playing Wonder Woman who looks like she gets winded easily shopping in Neiman Marcus.

Marvel is pointing and laughing and maintaining their already winning plan.

There has been talk about a Captain Marvel movie in phase 3 of the MCU. I imagine that talk got a bit louder after Catching Fire's phenomenal box office results over the last few weeks. (along with other recent female-centric blockbusters such as Gravity & Frozen)

Re: Gal Gadot cast as Wonder Woman In ‘Batman Vs. Superman’

That's a gross misread of the situation.

Hunger Games didn't make money because it had a chick in the lead.

Hunger Games made a lot of money because it had a chick with a bow in the lead.

(The movie shouldn't have made money, it was awful.)

Hawkeye is also a girl.

Mmmmm... Young Avengers Assemble!
