Oh my god if only humanity knew of a way to bulk humans up, like through vigorous physical activity combined with a diet of some sort.

If only something like that existed....do you know of anything like that? I mean there can't possibly be a solution to this mind numbing problem we're facing here, because I've never heard of anything remotely like that. Have you?
It's... just not as easy as you make it. Putting on some serious mass, some healthy mass is a real pain in the ass and it takes time - especially if you have to start from zero, hollywood trainers or not.
She was asked to bulk up for Fast and the furious, and she said no. So... :/
Of course it isn't easy - that should go without saying, don't be silly. If it was we'd all be nicely sculpted Adonis', a planet of healthy mass.

Almost every single picture I can find of her, and all the clips I've seen, make her look like she's about to starve to death. She's almost the skinniest model/actress I've ever seen. She looks like she survives on a glass of water a day.
You've never seen a picture of Chris Reeve before he was cast as Superman, have you?

Also, actors approach roles with their own ideas. She may not have seen a need to undertake a bulking up physical regimen for FF. It doesn't follow that she'd feel the same about Wonder Woman.

They didn't hire her because she's a known actress, they didn't hire her because she looks like WW (unless the person in charge has literally never seen and pictures of any version of WW)...
I would just like to point out: there are no pictures of Wonder Woman.

Wonder Woman is a drawn fictional character who for 70 some years has been drawn by many many different people and has looked different in those pictures over those 70 plus years.

So, again, there are no pictures of Wonder Woman. Just lines on a page representing a human being. An almost impossible human being.
Unless, you'd like to consider Olive Byrne for the inspiration.
That still makes my point. She was an inspiration for the character, but she ISN'T the character.

Lots of people could be inspirations for the drawing of Wonder Woman as time moved on...

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

Putting on some mass isn't that big of a deal if you're in Hollywood and basically getting paid to do it. It's not like she'd have to find 30 minutes to work out when she's not driving the kids to school or working the 9-5 office job. Personal trainer, personal cook and all the time in the world makes things a lot easier.

Lots, but not anyone. I am unsure of your point. If it's that Gal fits within how Wonder Woman has been depicted over time, sure, she's not unlike Olive I'd say, but that Camryn Manheim does as well, well no, I wouldn't think so.

As far as actresses changing their look, take a gander at Linda Hamilton between T1 and T2.

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

Prediction: Sometime next year we are going to see images of Gadot as Wonder Woman, and we will be very impressed and excited. Why? She'll look like a warrior, not a thin supermodel. Also, director Snyder will see to it that her costume is quite close to what we know from the comic books. That was his approach when he made Watchmen.

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

If she's naturally heavier and has to work to keep herself so skinny, it shouldn't be difficult for her to put weight back on. If she's always been that skinny, it will be a big challenge and she may need something more than just training and diet.

You know, I'm pretty sure that when Christian Bale was cast as Batman, or Henry Cavill as Superman, etc., we didn't have a six-page thread debating whether or not they'd be able to get into shape for their roles.

Christian Bale was already known for radical changes in build for his prior roles and we'd seen him pretty buff in American Psycho. Cavill was already pretty big as well. Not huge, but definitely fit.

That being said, I am fimrly in the camp that Gal can get into the role.

But... I have a vague recollection that we did have conversations that where people suggested that Cavill was too weedy.
