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

Since annoucement of a WW film is pn the horizon. Might as well bring this thread back instead of starting a new one.


Check out this photo Gal posted on her FB on the set of "Criminal".

Wonder Woman and Faora take a selfie. With Hal Jordan photobombing in the background.

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

Actually, there was a pilot for a Wonder Woman show (or perhaps it was a short vignette) back in the late 60's/early 70's that definitely had the feel of the 60's Batman show...it was meant to be a comedy. (It may have been a vignette, as I don't think it actually aired, now that I think on it.) Diana would turn into Wonder Woman just by gazing dreamily into her mirror, and then she would admire herself for a moment while the narrator (whom I believe was the same narrator as for the Batman series.....if I'm not mistaken, and can very well be) would play her up for that moment.

This one. Clearly Adam West Batman camp, it might have been fun with some tweaks.

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

I'm watching some fan made JLA webisodes from a couple years back.

Wonder Woman is easy on the eye and so humorously passive aggressive... HA! Aquaman just defenestrated Lex Luthor from 5 stories up.

Ouch. I agree it might have been fun, but it would have needed many tweaks.

That's it exactly, Gov. Good find.
Most of the time when I log in here, it's from an iPad, so linking and such is pretty cumbersome....especially with a cracked screen.

Yeah, it was very much the Adam West camp style.

I've heard that a lot. And I actually believe it. Brian Azzerallo is a great writer, I truly believe you when you say that his run is great. And I'd very likely be okay with it, if it were non-canonical!!! Make it an Elseworld, or something like The Dark Knight Returns, something out-of-continuity, and I'd likely read it and most propably enjoy it.
I agree with the method, but not with the intent. I think the Azzarello run has offered us the best incarnation of the character in decades and I'm extremely satisfied that thanks to it, years and years of tepid pablum have been relegated to non-canonical status.

Yeah.... I think it takes the Adam West camp style and cranks it to 11. The Adam West show was fun, that? That was painful..

It was a demo reel made to show to the network execs as a proof of concept, never intended for public airing. They did a similar thing with Batgirl before the third season. So yes, it was a pilot, but in the strict sense of a film made to sell a series to a network, rather than the looser sense of the premiere episode of the series itself.

Yeah, I like how she's in such a hurry to rush out of the apartment to save the day then she stops and mugs in front of the mirror for a couple minutes before going to do her job. Then there's the little leg flourish she does when taking off from the ledge. Seriously?!

No, she doesn't. The pop-culture relevance of WW is that she is more of a symbol of pre-Kate-Moss beauty than an athletic superhero. Pretty much synonymous with the body-image of a Marilyn Monroe. She's supposed to have a classic hourglass-figure which is why Gal Gadot doesn't really fit the mold.

I think most women would disagree that WW's hourglass figure is what really made her relevant over the years. Lol

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

Wonder Woman was actually created to satisfy her creator's (William Moulden Marston) fetish for female bondage. (This is not said disrespectfully...it is at least part pf the truth behind her creation.)

Once other writers got a hold of her, beyond Marston's control, then she became more the superheroine that most of us came to know and love.


@Christopher....Yes, that's the term I was looking for... "Proof of concept!". That's what I meant.

That's just one part of it. Marston believed in female superiority, and felt the world would be a better place if they were in charge. Bondage and discipline play is about exploring power and submission in a loving way, and that principle of "loving submission" to superior feminine authority was something he saw as better than the brute force that men traditionally applied to get their way. (And yes, that often involved women being placed in bondage, but in bondage play, the person placed in bondage is really the one in control, because the other has to be highly sensitive to their feelings, needs, and safety.)


Once other writers got a hold of her, beyond Marston's control, then she became more the superheroine that most of us came to know and love.
I don't think that's true at all. Marston wrote her as a genuinely strong, feminist icon, a symbol of the superior wisdom and loving power that he believed women had (and I don't disagree with him). Later writers reduced her to a more stereotypically feminine role and abandoned any feminist themes. It took decades more before creators like Dennis O'Neil and George Perez began to bring back the feminism and make her a really strong heroine again.
