She's really endearing.

Think that press interview gives a good idea why they cast her for personality/character as well as looks.
Yeah she definitely pops off the screen. I can definitely see her WW having the same presence and holding her own with the likes of Superman and Batman.

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

The Black Widow role in IM2 wasn't what I'd call small or small-ish.
Even as Black Widow she's in the film for about 10minutes or so.
As her undercover role that expands to 20-25minutes.

If her time is spilt up as Diana in street clothes and WW then 20min is not a small role, it's a legit support role.

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

My main caveat about the IM2 comparison is that I hope this film doesn't end up as a sort of springboard for a Justice League film, the way that Iron Man 2 seemed (to me) more of a prequel to Avengers than an Iron Man film in its own right.

For my money, Iron Man was a much better film than MOS, so if Favreau came a cropper with its sequel in trying to set up a bigger universe, I don't have a lot of faith in Zack Snyder's ability to do so here.

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

I suspect the IM2 comparison has less to do with screen time as it does relevance to the plot. Black Widow was there to monitor Stark, nothing else. She only got involved later in the film when a situation developed right in front of her and she had to act.

I guess my point is that up until she blew her cover, the part could have been played by some no-name actress and it wouldn't have made any real difference to the character or plot. Likewise I think Diana will be just someone who's just there--maybe an interview subject for Lois and a business rival for Lex if they're going with the Diana Prince identity--and she only busts out the lasso in the final act. Let's just hope they handle her better than they did Talia. Yeesh!

As for MoS2 itself...honestly the first one was so drab that I'd rather they screw it up by stuffing in too much colourful stuff than just getting more of the same.

We already know the character's real identity. Thus, the rule that everything about a character must be known at the outset of the film has been observed, and this should serve to appease modern "we hate surprises" audiences.

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

*WE* may be able to spot Wonder Woman in civies and calling herself Diana Prince, but I'd be willing to bet the vast majority of people who go to see that film have never even heard of "Diana Prince". Assuming they even go that root, it's likely they'll keep any reveal for the last reel...or even a post credits scene.

As for Talia, it wasn't bad because it was a "surprise", it was just handled very poorly. Just one of the many issues that film had with it's multiple incoherent plot threads.

It really won't matter because what the title of this thread is saying is out there as a news release to the general public. It's no secret.

And again, most people going to see summer blockbusters like this aren't the type to keep up genre gossip. It's not that it's a secret, they just don't care.

Batman on Film (who I can't seem to link to right now) is reporting that the WW role in MoS2 will be smallish...

Batman on Film wrote
Jett suggests her role is “on par with Scarlett Johansson’s first appearance as Black Widow in Iron Man 2,” with set-up potential for a future solo film.
Details at Spinoff On-line...
As an enthusiastic fan of superhero cinema, I once thought it was a great idea to follow BoF on Twitter. But Jett's tweets were generally too idiotic to tolerate for long. I soon stopped following him. And I don't take his "inside scoops" very seriously either. Let readers beware.

As others have noted, they are promoting the character as Wonder Woman already. The audience isn't going to be surprised, nor is that necessarily a perquisite to a good film.

For example: To go back to TDKR, Anne Hathaway's character is never called "Catwoman," but from pre-release publicity even people who have never picked up a comic book knew from the first second on screen who she was supposed to be. And did that "ruin" the movie? Of course not.

I believe Amy Adams said on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" that the MOS 2 script was done and the filming would begin soon.

I believe one of the producers also put a lot of rumors to rest as well. Specifically that the film being a Superman Sequel and not a quasi-Justice League prequel.

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

Gal Gadot appeared on an Israeli talk show and a viewer translated some of the information she provided for Batmannews.com. She's signed to a three-film deal, her salary for Superman/Batman is $300,000, and she's currently scheduled to start work on the film in May.

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

The new animated movie Justice League War ####ed up the Wonder Woman Costume.

The characterization was great, and I loved all the beheddings, but they tried to cover up too much skin and what she wound up wearing looked like jazzerobics tights.

Lets hope the movie doesn't go too far off the reservation too.

Hmm, wonder if that's when production as a whole starts, or if it's just when she starts filming her scenes. And $300,000 sure doesn't seem like a lot, compared to what the men are probably getting, but that might just speak to the limited amount of screentime WW gets in the movie...
