And the current continuity sucks. In part for that very reason.

Yeah, but Lynda Carter was not really any more credible as Wonder Woman than was Adam West as Batman.

I disagree. The New 52 run of Wonder Woman has been great.

Which was the point. The first season of WW on TV was meant to be just as big a superhero spoof as Batman, which meant they didn't need somebody that actually looked like a wonder woman. They just needed somebody brunette and pretty with reasonable enough command of english that she could memorize her lines.

Which is the same mentatlity they seem to be using for the new film.

I've heard that a lot. And I actually believe it. Brian Azzerallo is a great writer, I truly believe you when you say that his run is great. And I'd very likely be okay with it, if it were non-canonical!!! Make it an Elseworld, or something like The Dark Knight Returns, something out-of-continuity, and I'd likely read it and most propably enjoy it. But they made it canon, the "official current version", and therein lies my problem. I can live with different interpretations, but for the official canon version, even in a reboot, you gotta stick to the basics. You can mix up the details, but the basics have to be there.

I wonder if the other pudgy daughter of Zeus is equally as strong.

That first season might have had it's campy moments, but I still think they were clearly going for more of a straightforward adventure show than a Batman-style spoof.

In any case, I certainly see Gadot having a stronger and more intimidating screen presence than Carter ever had. Gadot can be both sweet and badass, but I don't think Carter could have ever pulled off the badass thing.

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

In the old continuity Wonder Woman was Zeus' grand daughter, and it was (Blonde Young Justice) Wonder Girl who was Zeus' daughter, which humorously made Wonder Girl the aunt of Wonder Woman.

The New 52 is not going to last.

There will be another Crisis lo it take another 20 years.

But it's not going to take 20.

Is Zero Hour regarded as a Crisis?

Are the Wonder Woman Comics dealing with the fall out of Clark and Diana dating yet?

It's still all that underworld god shit 28 issues later, isn't it?

This is why they had to invent the Superman + Wonder Woman title to pull up the slack.

- I'm glad they gave Diana a real father instead of having her molded out of dirt.

- I thought that Lynda Carter was perfect as Wonder Woman.

Looks that way. That's why I gave up on the title a long time ago.

Probably. Good move too.
