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

I admit, I think I'm going to have to take back my previous comments.

Looking at the two directors wikipedia pages, McLaren's credits definitely bring WW to mind a lot quicker than Jenkins'. Not that Jenkins' couldn't do a good job, after all the Russos credits mostly consisted of primetime sitcoms before TWS, and they did an awesome job.

The Crimean War seems like kind of a random period to stick WW in. I don't really see where it relates to any of the stuff you usually associated Diana with. If it were me, I think I would rather see either a modern story, maybe Cold War era, or a full on Ancient Greek fantasy story. I would think for the character's first movie, you'd want to stick to some of the most common stuff for the character, to introduce her most familiar elements to the public.

Chris Pine as Steve Trevor?

But I thought Scott Eastwood was playing that character in Suicide Squad? Nope, the article explains.

Blonde Steve Trevor will always be weird after all those years trying not to fall in love with Lyle.

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

Who better to romance WW than Capt. Kirk himself? But seriously, given what I've seen of Steve Trevor, Pine would be near-perfect casting.

What? They aren't going for the obvious and getting Lynda Carter to be Hippolyta?

Hippolyta is supposed to be a young woman, as the Amazons are immortal. Carter wouldn't work (and it would be gimmicky besides, like casting Adam West as Alfred).

Or casting John Wesley Shipp as Barry Allen's father... Or casting Helen Slater and Dean Cain as Supergirl's adoptive parents... Or casting Helen Slater as Clark Kent's biological mother and Christopher Reeve as his mentor...

But yeah, Hippolyta should be ageless.
