Unless, you'd like to consider Olive Byrne for the inspiration.
That still makes my point. She was an inspiration for the character, but she ISN'T the character.

Lots of people could be inspirations for the drawing of Wonder Woman as time moved on...
Lots, but not anyone. I am unsure of your point.
My point is: there is no picture of Wonder Woman. As in there is no absolute way she MUST look. It's in reply to all of these people saying "Gal doesn't look like Wonder Woman." And specifically a poster saying, she doesn't look like the picture of Wonder Woman.

Because there is no picture of Wonder Woman, like there's a picture of Lynda Carter or FDR or anyone else that ACTUALLY existed.


If it's that Gal fits within how Wonder Woman has been depicted over time, sure, she's not unlike Olive I'd say, but that Camryn Manheim does as well, well no, I wouldn't think so.
Yes, my point is that, broadly speaking, Gal fits in with how Wonder Woman has been drawn over time.

And Gal is also a real human being, whereas Wonder Woman isn't, and so doesn't have to be drawn in a realistic manner.


As far as actresses changing their look, take a gander at Linda Hamilton between T1 and T2.
I think you mistake me for a hater of this casting. I'm sure by the time the cameras roll, Gal will look just fine as Wonder Woman.

I'm much more concerned whether or not Snyder can actually create a 3 dimensional female character.

You know, I'm pretty sure that when Christian Bale was cast as Batman, or Henry Cavill as Superman, etc., we didn't have a six-page thread debating whether or not they'd be able to get into shape for their roles.
Not greatly surprising that there's been an unnecessary concentration on how she currently looks, it's very much like how since this announcement most of the accompanying pictures of her in the articles have been bikini shots, like this: http://celebtonews.com/wp-content/up...adot-Hot3.jpeg

I think I mistook your point by not really doing more than glancing at the conversation with kirk5+.

But... I have a vague recollection that we did have conversations that where people suggested that Cavill was too weedy.
A fair number of people complained he was too lean based on his appearance in Immortals.

There is one scene in MoS where he does look significantly thinner than in others. It must have been at the beginning of filming.

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

Well many others I've never seen her act but as yet again others have said Antje Traue had some rigorous training for Man Of Steel. And it would appear that the need a character who could take on Superman if need be, so I'd say we're goingto be seeing some of the type of action we saw in Man Of Steel.

Mark my words: 10-15 years from now when there's a new Diana, people will be complaining about how much she's not like Gadot.

She's going to be great.

You say that like anyone could replace Kirk Alyn as Superman.

Must we be reminded of those god-awful franchises?
Believe it or not, UNDERWORLD has a lot of fans. For awhile there, I was getting more fan mail for my UNDERWORLD books than for anything else--including my TREK books.

I like the Underworld movies. Nothing wrong with them.

She said no, and they still hired her?

Or did they ask her to bulk up between movies?
