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

It's been a while since I read Kingdom Come. I remembered her as looking older but still amazing, much like Mariska. Guess I'll have to dig it out again.

She only shows sign of age at the end when she's pregnant and it's mentioned as such as a plot point.

Donna was the one who aged, IIRC.

Mariska Hargitay is a great actress, but I can't really see her as Wonder Woman.

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

Well, looking at her in Ghoulies back in 1985 http://www.iamnotastalker.com/wp-con...eenShot858.jpg

http://cdn5.movieclips.com/mgm/g/gho...0_MC_Tx304.jpg

I can see a resemblance to George Perez's rebooted image of Wonder Woman. Maybe just the big 80's hair, but it works for me.

She is quite a bit closer to what I picture as WW in those pictures.

I love how when Gal says "By the book", she's referring to stuff that technically is more myth than fact. We've had plenty of female characters who use bows and I don't recall a single one of them complaining that their boobs get in the way. Not to mention that the number of Wonder Woman depictions where she slices off one of her breasts so she can use a bow better is....
She's obviously tongue-in-cheek responding to the fanboy whinge that she's not voluptuous enough to be an "accurate" Wonder Woman. And obviously when talking about the mythical Amazons you'll be dealing with... myth, not fact.
Indeed, she's quite funny about it. Turtletrekker noted here from her how easy it is to deal with breasts.

I think the breast complaints are stupid, and her comment was pretty funny. Now, she's definitely not the right size, but her chest isn't the problem. Its being weaker looking than a 5 year old boy that's the problem. Still, it really doesn't matter. She's in a movie by people who have shown they couldn't write/make a movie about Superman or batman if you put a gun to their head, and have never had anything approaching a good female character. The best, most Wonder Woman like actress in the world won't be able to make the Snyder/Goyer wonder Woman a good character, so they might as well cast Gadot. She's the actress those two deserve, a mediocre choice for an almost certainly badly written character in a movie thats basically guaranteed to be mediocre. I just hope that we;ll get a good WW in film once Goyer stops writing DC movies (when they reboot them in around 2050 )

Haven't you heard? Chris Terrio the writer of Argo is penning MOS 2.

So your fear of Goyer ruining this movie is unfounded.

Terrio is just rewriting Goyer's script. We don't know yet how extensive his rewrite will be - could be a complete overhaul, could be just a few lines here and there.
