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

The movie will have the principals initially suspicious / ignorant of each other until they discover they have to team up against some larger threat.

Vandal Savage? Accompanied by some kind of mook super-brick for Superman and WW to knock around?

Movie Doomsday vs. Comicbook Doomsday.

But this time the filmmakers will have learned their lesson from criticism of the first film, and will show Doomsday trying to save innocent civilians from Superman....

Yep, probably versus in the first half and allied in the second half.
Vandal Savage?
Highly likely to be Lex Luthor.

Maybe Metallo or Doomsday.

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

I really, really, really hope they don't go with Doomsday. I like the suggestion of Momoa as Vandal Savage, though Vandal and Lex (surely they'll have Lex?) in the same movie seems a bit too similar.

Metallo as the brick could work, or Parasite for something completely different.

Pretty much spot on. The examples of China in the 15th century and the Ottoman Empire after its peak in the early 17th century stand as very good analogies to the inward-looking nature of Kryptonian society (thus explaining the abandonment of space exploration, as the Chinese abandoned maritime exploration, scuttling the finest fleet in the world to date) and their blithe refusal to do anything in the face of evidence that something is seriously wrong mirrors many forms of cognitive dissonance found in real life (climate change denial being only one of several, though clearly the most direct analogy).
Honestly, there was a part of me wishing we'd seen more of Kypton's last days, it was a lot more compelling than I'd expected.

Either one would better than Smallville's Doomsday.

I was thinking that. But wasn't there some talk recently of The Rock as Lobo in his own movie?

This was probably responded to already;

You are horribly incorrect. Laughably incorrect. Disastrously incorrect.

I suspect a mild bit of trolling is in play here, but I have to ask: Have you ever in your life done any weight training whatsoever? If not, have you ever known personally anyone who has ever done any weight training whatsoever?

And, let it be known, that 5'9" is not "short". The average height for a white american woman is 5'5".

So let's work on your list a bit:
"Even if she was able to gain any muscle mass, it would never be enough and she'd just be a semi-muscular above-average height stick woman anyway, if she failed to complete her prescribed regimen."

kirk55555 wrote: View Post
My comments about her body type are accurate, she's shot and skinny, like your average model.
This is incorrect. Or perhaps I am unclear about to which model you are referring. Requirements for a female fashion model from the big agencies are 5'9"-6' 110-130lbs.

I'm not sure of her weight. In some pics she could be in that weight range. She is at the low end of the height requirement. However, the requirement is specifically not short.

There was, but The Rock said it's not happening anymore. Jett at Batman on Film, who sometimes has good sources within Warners, says Momoa isn't up for Martian Manhunter or Lobo. He says he's up for a regular Superman villain. Some of the geek news and rumor sites are saying that Warners is putting out misinformation to keep an element of surprise, though, so who knows.

I guess "original" in this context means "nobody is ever going to read it except maybe my mom".
