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!

Well, maybe they're pointing and laughing. But they're certainly bothered that they don't control the film rights to Spider-Man, the X-Men and Fantastic Four.

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.

No, but we have demonstrated adequately that a facetious two line-post from me can spark a way-too-serious tirade from you....

Anything can get a way-too-serious tirade out of Christopher. Still, he is 100% right.
