    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.)

    But, who played Lois in the comics? I want her.

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

    I love how when Gal says "By the book", she's referring to stuff that technically is more myth than fact. We've had plenty of female characters who use bows and I don't recall a single one of them complaining that their boobs get in the way. Not to mention that the number of Wonder Woman depictions where she slices off one of her breasts so she can use a bow better is....

    ZERO

    How come when it comes to talking about Wonder Woman as a character and we use the phrase "By the book" to describe her, why are we not talking about her freaking comics? Shouldn't that be the number one source of getting to know Wonder Woman and her mythology? There are decades worth of material from comics, shows, games and even animated movies.

    I just get the feeling that Gal and everyone involved in this movie doesn't care one bit about Wonder Woman, and instead will probably reduce her to a character like this.

    Pretty sure she was making a joke at the expense of anal retentive types.

    She's obviously tongue-in-cheek responding to the fanboy whinge that she's not voluptuous enough to be an "accurate" Wonder Woman. And obviously when talking about the mythical Amazons you'll be dealing with... myth, not fact.

    Indeed, she's quite funny about it. Turtletrekker noted here from her how easy it is to deal with breasts.

    This is still directed by the same guy who did Dawn of the Dead, 300, Watchmen, and Sucker Punch, right? I thought a crap was given about the female element in those movies. I will confess to not understanding women though, so YMMV.

    I wonder if Mariska Hargitay would be willing to play WW. Don't even try to tell me that wouldn't be awesome...
