Before Israeli actress Gal Gadot beat out Jaimie Alexander ("Thor: The Dark World"), Olga Kurylenko ("Oblivion"), and Elodie Yung ("G.I. Joe: Retaliation") for the part of Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder's untitled Batman/Superman film, many fans were hoping former mixed martial artist and Henry Cavill's current squeeze, Gina Carano, would be considered for the role. Carano said. “I was never approached, and I don’t know if I was considered." As for her Gal Gadot getting the coveted role of DC Comics most important female superhero, "I worked with her on Fast & Furious 6, and she’s amazing,” says Carano. “Such a great person with such a solidness in her character, so I’m very excited for her to do that.

Many people have questioned the choice. There main bone of contention is Gadot's incredibly thin frame as compared to a fitness nut like Carano. Though, Carano doesn't see that as an issue, “I think people have an idea what they consider Wonder Woman," says Carano. "I definitely know (Gadot) has been training and there’s so much more that goes into being a strong female character. I think people have their own idea, but I always like the underdog, I’m always rooting for the underdog. If the world says you can’t do something, I couldn’t care less because that’s not how anybody should live their lives.”

Carano also shot down rumors of her being associated with the female Expendables film, "I was never attached to the female Expendables," she stated. "It’s just something like people put my name in there and then everyone thought it was truth."

BATMAN/SUPERMAN - Zack Snyder will direct the film from a screenplay being written by Chris Terrio from a screenplay by David S. Goyer and a story co-created by Goyer and Snyder. Zack Snyder’s Superman/Batman film stars Henry Cavill, reprising his role as Superman/Clark Kent, and Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne. The film will also reunite “Man of Steel” stars Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Ma Kent, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. Zack Snyder’s untitled Superman/Batman film which will now be arriving in theaters May 6, 2016.

I didn't read that.
She's a woman.
I never listen to women.
Gusto - 4/25/2014, 11:43 AM
All women sound like
Charlie Brown's teacher
to me.

@Gusto

Me Too......but then I got Married....18years ago.

Reasonnnn - Gina Carano is doing just fine for someone that didn't start off wanting to become an actor.
Brainiac13 - 4/25/2014, 11:46 AM
@Gusto



You look cool in this pic! ;)
TheAbaryMan369 - 4/25/2014, 11:47 AM
It's funny how they go for a big name actor for a big name character (Affleck as Batman) but for characters that didn't get a movie yet they cast minor actors.
MsDarkPhoenix - 4/25/2014, 11:47 AM
@Gusto I had forgotten why I hate you. I remember now.
nailbiter111 - 4/25/2014, 11:47 AM
Reasonnnn - Don't post 3 comments in a row to start off an article. You could've put that all in one comment.
Reasonnnn - 4/25/2014, 11:48 AM
@nailbiter11 Yeah, she was fine with what she had to do in Haywire, but man her line delivery is just so stiff (eg. banter between her and The Rock, actually with anyone); no emotion at all, a walking and talking terminator.
Gusto - 4/25/2014, 11:49 AM
Brainy...you suck! LMAO!
Gusto - 4/25/2014, 11:49 AM
Phoeny...
whah whah whah whah whah?
Reasonnnn - 4/25/2014, 11:49 AM
@nailbiter111, yeah my bad, I just spewing thoughts that came to me.

Lets all take Gina's comments with a grain of salt; she can't act but she can kick ass. Nothing else, nothing more.
BlackIceJoe - 4/25/2014, 11:50 AM
I never liked her as WW. She can fight but she isn't that great of an actress. I don't think Gal is that great of an actress either. But hopefully Gal will surprise me and do an amazing job as Diana.
MsDarkPhoenix - 4/25/2014, 11:56 AM
@Gusto Shut up or I'll poison your sandwich!!
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 4/25/2014, 12:02 PM
Too long. Man I am one lazy motha[frick]er. I'll thumbs up tho
Klone - 4/25/2014, 12:10 PM
Well no shit she's going to be positive. All actors/directors are so they look good.
Cles - 4/25/2014, 12:14 PM
I've never seen Gadot in anything before. All I will say, is that the above clip makes me sad.
giannis - 4/25/2014, 12:17 PM
I always wanted Eva Green to play Wonder Woman, but I really look forward to seeing Gadot's portrayal of WW in the sequel of Man of Steel.
IminentEminence - 4/25/2014, 12:20 PM
Say what you want about ol' Gal, I'm still glad we dodged that Carano bullet.
Brainiac13 - 4/25/2014, 12:22 PM
You should put what she says in bold to help the lazy lot. :)
Brainiac13 - 4/25/2014, 12:23 PM
I forgot to put @Nails

God I would [frick] the shit out of her [foo foo]
fettastic - 4/25/2014, 12:33 PM
Henry dumped her ass over a year ago so he could test out "The Big Bang Theory" chick. He boned her for a couple of weeks and dumped her ass too. If he ever got back with Gina I haven't heard about that.
MrBatmor - 4/25/2014, 12:33 PM
even if someone doesnt think gal gadot is a good choice...no one is publicly going to say that!!


@bj here buddy

jp688 - 4/25/2014, 12:34 PM
Carano was great in Haywire, acting and all. She's Wonder Woman.
Arrowhead77 - 4/25/2014, 12:34 PM
Did she warn Gal not to touch her man on the BvS set? Both chicks are super hot!

Also, Gusto is correct. My wife always says I never listen too her. I tell her its because I dont hear her... I have a very comfortable couch.
Gusto - 4/25/2014, 12:35 PM
Praetorian...lmfao!!!!!
0megaDaGod - 4/25/2014, 12:35 PM
I can't convincingly say Gina is worse, but I am CERTAIN she is not better
UltimateHunt - 4/25/2014, 12:35 PM
yup i know about working out, and with a couple of months you gain alot of muscle to be wonder women, so easy (SARCASM)
of-course she has to say nice things about her
Trickwil - 4/25/2014, 12:36 PM
Gina Carano needs to be in the Marvel Universe as something. I think she'd be a great Elektra.
UltimateHunt - 4/25/2014, 12:36 PM
Batmor,
TURN UP its FRIDAY!
fettastic - 4/25/2014, 12:37 PM
Just looked it up. He went back to that MMA pussy right after dumping the Big Bang Theory chick.
UltimateHunt - 4/25/2014, 12:37 PM
Trickwill
naw i think she needs to be in DC. Marvel has hotties, DC needs some besides Louis. (WW is F%@K)
Gusto - 4/25/2014, 12:38 PM
Sometimes I think I should
settle down and stop chasing
bar skanks. But then, I just
stop and think how much I like
my money.
UltimateHunt - 4/25/2014, 12:38 PM
does people know about working out?
then you know about gaining msucle... nope.. anyone
ChuckV - 4/25/2014, 12:38 PM
Kate Beckinsale should've gotten the role.... she's got the entire package.
GoldSlayer1 - 4/25/2014, 12:39 PM
Hopefully she gets a role as another Amazon or something in the WW movie.
UltimateHunt - 4/25/2014, 12:39 PM
FRIDAY TRUE LOVE, TURN UP!
DEVLIN712 - 4/25/2014, 12:41 PM
We've hated casting decisions before, we should just wait and see
