    No offense to your friend, but she's not exactly the body type one sees on the runways at the major fashion shows in Milan, Paris, New York, and London.

    Yikes. Horribly skinny, no boobs, tattooed, and only vaguely cute (but by no means beautiful).
    Lynda Carter may have had no ass, but she was a true beauty (and stacked, to boot). This woman can't carry her halter top.

    I think that she is a great choice. She is a beautiful woman and an under rated actress who will most likely end up doing a great job.

    Funny how there's an expectation among comics/genre fans that Wonder Woman should be very athletic / muscular when in the comics she has pretty much always had the same lingerie model body as every other super-heroine.

    She's still been more or less shown to have some "body" and curves to her. Gal is a beautiful woman, but she's not Wonder Woman. Maybe if she gains about 30-pounds of muscle or something but, really, I just don't see it at all.

    Adding 15 kilos of muscle does not add "curves" to a woman. And again, which was my point, Wonder Woman is not and has almost never portrayed as a muscular female bodybuilder. I expect her to look fit and slightly athletic, just like she does in the comics.

    Muscle was the wrong word there, but better option than "fat", still more weight on the woman would go a long way to giving her looks and curves of Wonder Woman who, yeah, while not always muscular (depending on the artist) at least has curves. And not arms/legs like toothpicks and the boobs of a 13-year-old girl.

    Again, I think Gal is a gorgeous woman. She's just not Wonder Woman.

    She looks like Wonder Woman to me.

    She has plenty of curves in her Castro lingerie vid on YouTube. And just because she isn't rocking DD breasts, doesn't make her have the "tits of a 13 year old".

    If my girlfriend saw me posting things like these about any woman, she would shit a brick, I'm sure. And my mom would wonder where she went wrong....

    You should come clean, and admit your wrongdoing to them in an effort to repent.:devil:

    In case I wasn't clear, I wasn't referring to anything I'd posted.

    I wonder what style of costume they will go for?

    Will she have a tight latex costume like Silk Spectre from Snyder's Watchmen or will they use one out of the comics or an armor version resembling Faora.

    Here are some costumes I like.

    Traditional

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    Actresses are not women, or at least not women first, second, third or fourth.

    There's no need to be as rude as beaker, but actors are paid, and at the top end of the spectrum paid very well to transform everything about themselves into sometimes something radically different.

    I'd bet some form of the pants costume... That said, you could also take not account the outfits from MoS as an idea of direction. Kevin Smith was shown a pic of Afleck in the batman suit by Snyder after some yahoo MoS q&a he moderated, and said its nothing like has been shown in the movies so far. He aid it was very much like a particular comic style, buy it was beeped/censored in the Hollywood Bable-on podcast so unless you were there you don't know specifics.

    No matter where you go, there you are.
    First hit in a Google search on this name brought up this discussion on another forum, containing strong indicators that the same person goes by the name Jennifer Ryan in contexts that imply modelling is not their primary source of income. Which, that's cool, I'm not judging anyone... but I wouldn't go representing them as an example of professional fashion modelling.

    Yasmine / Jennifer is quite beautiful and a triumph of self-creation, but it's fairly obvious that their "living doll" look is the product of implants and extensive surgery. It's more than a bit disturbing to see this described as being somehow definitive of what "looks like a woman." Because it isn't. And it certainly has little or nothing to do with how the character of Wonder Woman has been portrayed in comics.
