You guys are seriously getting your hopes up on Doomsday? Remember, this is supposed to be Superman vs. Batman...I don't see them squeezing Doomsday into that....

I'm not getting my hopes up on Doomsday. I hope they don't do Doomsday, I fear they ARE doing Doomsday. Doomsday isn't really a character, he was just an excuse to kill Superman so they could sell a lot of books. He was never that interesting to me. He's just a monster that punches hard. Bo-ring.

But, I think they just might be. It's a SUPERMAN sequel, yet they are already bringing in Batman AND Wonder Woman. It's like they don't have any confidence that they can do a sequel just about Superman. And it's not officially Superman VS. Batman... do you really think that the whole movie will literally be one against the other? It will be for a little bit, but, once a foe rears its head, it will take the two of them "working" together to bring down... Lex or Doomsday...

So, while I'm not hoping for Doomsday, I wouldn't be surprised if they do it just because after Lex, he's the most well known villain outside of Brainiac--and they just did a Kyptoinain thing, so...

Doomsday will provide the carnage porn that Snyder is looking for. You can't have a Superman movie without someone that Superman can punch for 15 to 20 minutes. And he ain't gonna punch Batman... or Bats will explode like a hotdog in a microwave.

Doomsday is good enough for an action villain and i really hope it's not Lex Luthor yet as he's done to death in the movies.. out of the 6 Superman movies to date he was the main villain in 3 of them and has appeared in 5 (don't quote me on that.. i'm going from memory and it's been ages i saw the Reeve Superman movies). Just give him a rest even if casting someone like Bryan Cranston would be awesome to see.

As to Superman vs. Batman.. well, their philosophies do clash and i liked the Byrne era introduction where Batman needs his help and in oder to avoid being just captured by Superman tells him that if he is touched by Superman a bomb will go off somewhere possibly killing someone. It is revealed at the end that the bomb was in Batman's belt after all and no one was threatened.

Some time later Superman gives Batman a kryptonite ring as one of the few reliable ways to defeat Superman should he ever get out of control showing a level of trust and friendship that was a far cry from the beginning.

If they go that route and plant the beginning of a deep friendship i will be very satisfied (and i am really curious to see how Affleck will portray him.. Bruce Wayne shouldn't be a problem but seeing him as the Batman should be the kicker).

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

I've been watching the Fast & Furious movies lately. Gal Gadot plays a role in the past three movies of the series. I was surprised to see that she actually does a decent job in the movies. Of course, the movies don't require much in terms of acting ability, but Gadot seems to have decent screen presence.

You guys might laugh at me, but her performances (most notably in Fast & Furious, where she gets the most screentime) are actually filled with some nice nuances. They aren't anything to write home about, but if you read some of the comments online, you'd think Gadot was a terrible actress. Far from it. I can understand why Snyder cast her now. Along with some decent acting ability, she's really gorgeous. She also has a wonderfully exotic voice which should play nice for Wonder Woman.

So, honestly, I don't know what all the hubbub is about. She's not my ideal choice for Wonder Woman (to be honest I always pictured Charisma Carpenter in the role) but I think she's a solid choice. I'm sure with the proper physical training she'll physically resemble the role as well. Even though I'm not a big fan of Zack Snyder as a director, he does know how to pick actors and get decent performances out of them. Despite my negative opinion of Man of Steel, I will concede the performances were one of the best things about that movie.

I agree. As I said earlier in the thread, despite the F&F movies not being acting showcases she nevertheless shows decent acting chops and good screen presence in them, particularly in Fast & Furious 6. Importantly for Wonder Woman, she's displayed that she has a sweetness and a warmth to her, while also being capable of being a badass in action scenes.

For anyone who thinks you need to be big and buff to kick ass, I present to you British Martial Arts Champion Chloe Bruce.
She's worked on Thor 2, Kick-Ass 2, PoTC: On Stranger Tides, and John Carter.

I don't doubt there will be a ton of action in this thing, but I can't see them wanting to repeat themselves with the destruction of yet another city like in MOS.

Unlike others here, I give Snyder and Goyer a bit more credit than that, and think they'll try to come up with a different kind of threat for the sequel.

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

If they want to introduce Luthor and Kryptonite, I think Metallo would be a more likely choice. Besides, wouldn't Doomsday be done in CGI?

The climatic action scene could be outside Metropolis. If they want it to be an action scene where Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman end up teaming up against a villain that would call for a really big threat. I guess you could go for Metallo and pump up his abilities, especially if there were other threats in the mix, like maybe Luthor with Kryptonian tech, but Doomsday would certainly fit the bill.

Probably, but they might still cast a name actor for the mo-cap performance.

The stars on the American flag represent the 50 states. The Star on the Texas State flag say fuck the other 49 stars who think they're the same as us... How many stars are on her knickers and what do they mean?

The five-pointed star is used very widely around the world.

Flags which use the five-pointed star include the European Union, Algeria, Chile, China, New Zealand, North Korea, Turkey, it's even on the Esperanto flag.

Also, it's been used as a symbol of the Soviet Union (usually in red, known as the Red Star), as well as in the Ottoman Empire, the Druze, the Bahá'í faith, the Order of the Eastern Star,

It's most probably derived from the Pentagram, which has been used as early as the Babylonians, to whom it was an important religious symbol.

It's also been used, and here comes the WW connection, by Pythagoreanism, a cult/movement founded on the principals of ancient Greek mathematician and philosopher Pythagoras (you probably remember the Pythagoras theorem from school). Their philosophy was based on a harmony in the universe, nature, mankind and the individual itself.

The fact that the five-pointed star has been used as both a symbol of military strength and ideals of harmony actually make it the perfect symbol to wear as a peace-loving Amazon warrior.

A very erudite contribution, but no, Wonder Woman doesn't wear stars as a nod to Pythagoreanism.

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

A squared + B squared = C squared.

Or you can see him weekly on Atlantis side by side with Hercules.

The Stars on New Zealand and Australian flags are directions.

Our addresses.

For in case if we get lost.

Now we know how to get home.

Just like in Stargate.
