I was going to watch it streaming on TheWB.com, but now that I know about this, I'll just be watching it this way.

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

First Gal Gadot interview after the casting announcement!

Batman-News | Gal Gadot on Wonder Woman casting, fan criticism, training and more

The interview was originally in hebrew on Israeli television, and it's presented both as video of the original broadcast and translated transcript.

She pretty much nailed it

The whole discussion is absurd.. of course she will train and bulk up for the role but she'll never look like a female wrestler. Superman should look like a human equivalent of a mountain because that's part of his character but does Wonder Woman have to be the same?

Did anyone cry foul when Lynda Carter was playing the character and she has a normal figure (in todays size 0 climate she would have been called fat).

If the character is written well and she plays her well who cares how she looks?

Comics also are have very unnatural physiques.. most women in today's superhero mainstream comics look more like porn stars with huge breasts that in reality can only be achieved through major surgery so people might want to step back a little and differentiate between comics and live adaptations.

I liked her much in the F&F series though she didn't get to do much acting as she was a supporting actress (with the exception of one very memorable scene in FF5 ) but she was capable enough to want to see more of her (at least her acting didn't want me to pull my eyes out like other models who thought it would be nice to start acting).

Gal is perfect for Wonder Woman. Much like Amy Adams was perfect for Lois Lane, IMHO.

No, Teri Hatcher was perfect.

Amy just did a bloody good job while playing someone with the same name as Lois Lane.

So I googled Noel to see what she looked like.

Then I clicked on the picture to see it a little larger.

There were lots of pictures of her where I ended up...

On a website website which was called "Wikifeet"

Down the bottom of the page: Do you like Noels feet? (yes) or (No)?

Followed by: Other people who like Noel's feet also liked Jessica Castan's feet.

(I shit you not.)

^ Joanne Siegel?! I don't think she'd work well with WB/DC.

That would be Joanne Siegel, the wife of Jerry Siegel and the model for Lois Lane.
