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

I will admit that I haven't seen much of Gadot, but it's always nice to see one of my people cast in a major role.

I agree Mariska Hargitay is a beautiful woman but she is more of an age to play Diana's Mother.
Have you seen SVU lately? Mariska doesn't look anywhere near her age. You would never guess that she's 49. She could play any age and get away with it just fine. And let's face it, she has the Wonder Woman attitude as well as ability.

Oh wait, I was thinking of Angie Harmon (she's the one who wants to play She-Hulk). Yeah, while Mariska still looks great, I don't think she can pull off under 40 convincingly anymore.

One thing Mariska Hargitay has is the physicality. While portraying Olivia Benson she looks like she could kick someone's ass even without super powers. She also looks like she could break the vast majority of SF babes without breaking a sweat.

She looks good for a woman about to hit 50 but could she pass for 30 or 35? no.

And now she's too young.

Ben is 41.

I'm just thinking what the elsweworlds angle is for Kevin Smith to be cast as Batman?

Except she hadn't aged in Kingdom Come - she only did so right at the end.

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

Wonder Women is usually drawn as someone between 27 and 32.

balancing Youth with maturity.

Despite Bruce looking 70, I thought she looked closer to 40.

Of course that could have just been becuase she'd stopped fucking around.

Unless of course there's probably some text that says "My god she hasn't got a day older since I first met her."

You're probably right.

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

It's been a while since I read Kingdom Come. I remembered her as looking older but still amazing, much like Mariska. Guess I'll have to dig it out again.

She only shows sign of age at the end when she's pregnant and it's mentioned as such as a plot point.

So I wouldn't cast an 18-year old girl to play Miss Marple.

Donna was the one who aged, IIRC.

Mariska Hargitay is a great actress, but I can't really see her as Wonder Woman.

Well, looking at her in Ghoulies back in 1985 http://www.iamnotastalker.com/wp-con...eenShot858.jpg

I can see a resemblance to George Perez's rebooted image of Wonder Woman. Maybe just the big 80's hair, but it works for me.
