Is Gal Gadot A Good Choice For WONDER WOMAN?

Somewhat controversially, Gal Gadot has been added to the seemingly ever expanding character roster for the Man Of Steel sequel, Batman VS Superman. Should Wonder Woman make an appearance in the film? And if so is Gal Gadot capable enough of a performer to take on the iconic role?

It's a stupid question because none of us will know the answer without a time machine
Scorpion8125 - 12/13/2013, 2:57 PM

She is a bad choice.

skinny youngling.

Bah!

Greengo - 12/13/2013, 2:58 PM
We'll see won't we.

Scorpion8125 - 12/13/2013, 2:59 PM

Sure they will exercise bulk her up, but why not have a voluptuous 30 something year old hottie with some acting chops?

Bah!

Shaanyboi - 12/13/2013, 2:59 PM
Another one of these...

WE DON'T KNOW. No one knows aside from Zack and other crew-members on that movie. We won't know until we start seeing footage of her in the movie. Until we do, stop with the pointless questions that really aren't going to change anyone's mind by bringing up points everyone has already brought up.
npamusic - 12/13/2013, 2:59 PM
@Scorpion lol that's a good joke.
npamusic - 12/13/2013, 3:00 PM
She won't be Wonder Woman, that's for sure. She's only going to be Diana.
subzero1077 - 12/13/2013, 3:01 PM
Some well made points. Let's see how she does before bashing.
SonofBatman - 12/13/2013, 3:01 PM
All she needs is a decent boob job and about a million squats and she's good.
Scorpion8125 - 12/13/2013, 3:01 PM

I guess they were looking for a ... princess...

TheRationalNerd - 12/13/2013, 3:02 PM
She's a beautiful woman but I just want her to chunk up a bit as many others have stated. I keep hearing about these A-List fitness trainers Snyder has up his sleeve so I have faith that we'll see (if not a massive) a noticeable change in her physique. Haven't seen any of her films either so yeah, my main question is how these characters will all come to fruition within the film??

And villains? When are we set to get a confirmation of who these guys will be? I've heard Lex here and Doomsday there but I need answers from Warner Bros. It's only a matter of time...
bigdannymac - 12/13/2013, 3:03 PM
Good or Bad we are FINALLY getting Wonder Woman on the big screen..

There is NOTHING to compare her to as far as movies go. So lets wait for the first image, the first trailer and more importantly.. THE MOVIE before we start passing judgement.

No matter who got the role, I'm just happy Wonder Woman will finally be portrayed in a movie, and Gal/Wonder Woman can only improve after a first appearance (or so we hope).
RetroFit - 12/13/2013, 3:03 PM
No. She looks like a twig. Her arms are skeletal and the bone structure of her face looks way too fragile and weak. Wonder Woman needs to look like she can take and give a punch. This chick looks more suited for shopping for shoes, spraying perfume on herself in front of the mirror and ordering strawberry daiquiris at an outdoor patio.
bigdannymac - 12/13/2013, 3:04 PM
@manofmidgard .....Riiiiiiight.....

Then don't go see it. Simple.
Jollem - 12/13/2013, 3:04 PM
snyder is pretty much the man, so...yeah. she's will most likely kick ass
manofmidgard - 12/13/2013, 3:04 PM
"Is Gal Gadot A Good Choice For WONDER WOMAN?"
no, not really. but still a better fit than affleck.

this turd of a movie really is in desperate need of a courtesy flush. so sorry for henry cavill, he is so perfect as superman. he doesn't deserve this.
CavEl - 12/13/2013, 3:05 PM
The answer is no.

Pro Gadot people: She's beautiful, Wonder Woman is beautiful. She's perfect.

Anti-Gadot people: She's too skinny, she has no action scene expetience, she has no experience in films except playing "the hot chick", in the role she plays she's bland, she's not respectful enough to play the legendary Wonder Woman.

Should've gone to spmeone else, but Hack Snyder is a moron who WB just gave the keys to the entire DCCU. Worst of all, he has no filter and has a moron like David Goyer writing for him.
TheWolverine08 - 12/13/2013, 3:07 PM
LET THE GAMES BEGIN PEOPLE!
Scorpion8125 - 12/13/2013, 3:07 PM

@manofmidgard

You are so right. Great Superman.. with...

Frumpy older Lois
Ridiculous Batfleck
Young teeny Wonder Woman

It better be a fantastic movie to overcome all this bad casting.



SaxoWolf - 12/13/2013, 3:11 PM
don't know, haven't seen the movie.
Scorpion8125 - 12/13/2013, 3:12 PM

And yeah I loved Watchmen,

but I am worried Hack Snyder is gonna fall down that Sucker Punch rabbithole again....

Tevii - 12/13/2013, 3:12 PM
The answer is: We wont know until the movie comes out.

Do i think she will be?
Not if she doesnt put on weight, which will be VERY hard for her since shes an ectomorph. And I dont see her owning a scene over Cavill or Affleck. Other actresses can own the scene over them easily. She does NOT seem to have the commanding presence necessary for Wonder Woman
batcheeks8 - 12/13/2013, 3:12 PM
Can we please stop with the body shaming? Gyms aren't exclusively for men.
batcheeks8 - 12/13/2013, 3:15 PM
All this "she needs a boobjob asap" talk is disgusting and you should be ashamed of yourselves. Boobs come in all shapes and sizes, and so does Wonder Woman.
Jollem - 12/13/2013, 3:15 PM
everything about MoS was incredible. the sequel will most likely follow suit and continue to raise the bar
sanyaya - 12/13/2013, 3:16 PM
WILL SEE so far shes to skinny she can't act tits way too small MEGA GALE WOULD IVE BEEN BETTER
manofmidgard - 12/13/2013, 3:16 PM
@biffannymac

i think you missed the point. my point was that i wish they would make a GOOD movie instead of a crappy one. i would LIKE to go see a movie with superman, batman, and wonder woman in it, but not if they ruin all the characters.
they are just grabbing actors willy-nilly and shoving them into roles that they don't fit in. i'm not insulting DC and i'm not really insulting the actors. i am however, highly annoyed at affleck, who should know enough to stay away from roles that he can't pull off, accepted this part just bcause he wants to vindicate himself for the turd that was daredevil. grunting out another cbm turd won't do that. there are surely other cbm roles that he could ull off quite nicely, but batman just isn't one of them. and this chick doesn't resemble ww at all to me. sure maybe they can change her enough to cram her into the role, but why not just get somebody that already looks somewhat like ww to begin with? its just stupid. just my opinion, of course.
AstroZombie - 12/13/2013, 3:17 PM
Doubtful.
Scorpion8125 - 12/13/2013, 3:17 PM

Some thick eyebrows.

Wonder if the Woman has any .. grooming issues.. down there?

npamusic - 12/13/2013, 3:17 PM
You guys do realize that Gal is almost 30, right?
Prime - 12/13/2013, 3:17 PM
She is too skinny and she is not a good actress either....so we'll see.Hopefully she can bulk up in 3 months.
npamusic - 12/13/2013, 3:18 PM
@
batcheeks8

WELL SAID.

Scorpion8125 - 12/13/2013, 3:20 PM

When I said teeny, I meant as in size, not age.

Yes, she is 28 years old, and I would love to have her on my casting couch, but not on screen as a shrimpy eye candy Wonder Woman.

NeoBaggins - 12/13/2013, 3:21 PM
I was done with this at "hero overload"

A film series trying to establish a team of superheroes labeled "hero overload" for trying to establish a team of superheroes.

dckizzle - 12/13/2013, 3:22 PM
They will bulk her up like dc always does to there actors
Scorpion8125 - 12/13/2013, 3:22 PM
@NPaMusic,

Hilarious pic, but no to Rosanne Barr as Wonder Woman.

MrEko - 12/13/2013, 3:22 PM
"Too skinny"??? Of all the excuses in the world, good grief. Apparently morons have never heard of a gym. On the other hand, I'm taking about a bunch of comicbook nerds, so it is too be expected.
Ignition - 12/13/2013, 3:23 PM
Gal Gadot has no action experience? She did many of her own stunts in Fast Five/Furious 6, including jumping from a motorcycle to a jeep. She's not "respectful" enough? Did she piss in your cereal or something?

This place is the worst. Lmao.
Scorpion8125 - 12/13/2013, 3:25 PM

Gina Carano would have been perfect.

I dream of her destroying Batfleck with a nuclear nut kick.

manofmidgard - 12/13/2013, 3:26 PM
@blackjack

i don't believe that i claimed to have seen the movie. i did answer the question that was asked, giving just my opinion. i believe that was the point of the question after all. maybe YOU should try it. just say YOUR opinion, instead of trying to pick apart other peoples opinions. bah.
