In a statement, Zack Snyder stated: "Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe. Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character."
I think Snyder is messing with the folks.

lilly collins. yeah..she would have been good. i also think jaime alexander in Thor 2, where she was fighting with that sheild and sword looked just like WW.

i have no idea who this gal is, but she has a big task ahead of her.

but its not her im worried about. its zack snyder. i think hes a good director, but his vision isnt what i think is best for DC comics and the more time passes the more i really disliked Man of Steel. the first on screen pairing of supeman, batman, and wonderwoman in HIS hands doesnt fill me with confidence.

hes just not right. i like his flicks, i just doubt hes the guy for THIS job.

of course i wasnt entirely sure about Joss Whedon either. i love the guy and everything about him, but him helming that big flick...? i would NEVER have guessed it would turn out to be as good as it did.
so maybe Snyder can do it, but Man of Steel sucked ass. joss didnt have a huge directorial failure like that before avengers to taint him. (all personal opinions here)

heres hoping.

The chick from Thor seemed a bit Petite. The Dejah Thoris Chick was nicely toned. The Chick Snyder is casting is a skinny lanky fashion model. She played the skinny chick in Fast and Furious when they were in Brazil stealing that bank vault of cash.

She seems OK to me, but I'm not expecting much. I wish she had Blue Eyes though.

Most consider MoS a success for Snyder. This is why WB has him signed on to the sequel so quick. Snyder's Sucker Punch is what I would consider his biggest theatrical failure.

Blue eyes can be fixed if people care that much - just have her wear lenses.

Her lack of muscle tone can also be fixed, assuming she puts in the time - and actors train for roles all the time.

I don't think I've seen her actually act, though. And my partner HATED Snyder's Man of Steel with so much of a passion that his first comment was "Wonder Woman needs a better agent." So I may not bother with it.

She isn't skinny or flat as previously stated she's average I think her face is right, she has that sweet girlish look. She may be a good choice now if the only the script is good.

Yeah they'll probably save her Wonder Woman in costume for the big reveal in the Justice League movie. But it stands to reason that the producers and her would probably want her to work out for the role. Scarlett Jo had to do some intense working out to be Black Divorce'e and Jen Garner as Electra had to work out. A lot would be riding on this, they wouldn't pick a woman who was going to eat bon bons and walk through this movie and the JL movie.

A WW cameo that was mentioned above is a good point. While i am not excited for this pick, she has appeal and presence. It's her chops (she's very green) which has me concerned.

Angel
12-06-2013, 09:12 PM
Yeah they should have cast Judy Dench or Helen Mirren ...someone with real acting chops...on the off chance that they just proceed with Gal I'm sure Snyder will be sending her to Gym Jones on a regular basis and she will put as much as she could into a career making role.

I agree. Anyone else has a list of three they think should be consider in the role? Here's mine in alpha:

1.) Reiko Aylesworth (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0043855/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1)
2.) Erika Christensen (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0159776/?ref_=nv_sr_1)

Absolutely nothing about any of these three says WW to me. Opinions vary, but..... what were you thinking? I think Gal is as good a choice as any, though I was hoping for a nod to Bridget Regan. She's got the acting and action chops as well as the looks. I loved her in Legend of the Seeker.

My intent was to get a list of other picks compiled, not to change your mind. WW has a lot in common with Captain America in my world - so much to play with. Considering the WW mantle was taken up by Hippolyta and others, this is an opportunity for a creative mind to have ones cake and eat it too.

May as well give up any thoughts about light hearted DC comics flicks. All will be grimm and gritty as the other way failed miserably. I say he's going to be Vandal Savage, which would set up the reason for the League to get together instead of Darkseid. What was the original reason the JL got together? We all know it was Loki using the Hulk for the Avengers.

I gave up in 89 when Batman was throwing people off buildings in the 89 flick. Again in 92 when he barbequed a clown with his flames from the Batmobile. I haven't ever seen a lighthearted DC comics flick that I can recall.

that depends on how sensitive you are I suppose. But the recent GL flick I would consider light hearted. Even Catwoman. The Schumacher Bats flicks. The Superman returns flick was dour and sour and moldy like 1980's bread.

Now go ahead and say how ugly she is or that she is too skinny or her boobs are too small.



She's rather lovely but doesn't really say tough ass queen of the Amazons, you know? I think the closest we ever got to that was Lucy Lawless as Xena and even she wasn't that big or muscular or terribly imposing.
I don't know why we can't see a woman who has actual muscle tone as a superhero...and I don't just mean in movies, I mean in the art world, too. I remember back in the day wishing that Chyna from the WWE would have been cast as Xena or Wonder Woman because shes actually very muscular and reminds me of the typical Amazon warrior archetype that we should be looking for...not just skinny brunettes...doesn't cut it in my book. Of course, I grew up around the world of body builders and body building so maybe it takes a lot to impress me in that department.
I just really get sick of the typical cookie-cutter skinny supermodel-esque women that seem to dominate our media and this is just another example.

Personally, I'd like to see Wonder Woman being played by someone more along the lines of Gemma Taylor Magnusson (who i can't find a decent picture of that will post up here) or Aneta Florczyk:

I mean, I could go on but I think I've made my point...and that is that while it's perfectly acceptable and even expected for men who fight in movies to be bulked up, women somehow get a pass by just being skinny. It doesn't really make sense.

It isn't just about muscularity, Mist, it's also about acting ability.

I'd love to see a muscular WW myself, but there wouldn't also be acting ability there.

Now, find a beautiful, 6 ft bodybuilder that can also act? That's going to be a challenge.

I'd say finding a tall, beautiful catwalk model than can act is just as much of a challenge. The main difference is that tall, beautiful catwalk models are more acceptable in Hollywood. To say that bodybuilders can't act is a perception pretty much in the same veins as one dismissing the existence of a black swan.

Muscular? How did we get to muscular? Not muscular just battle hardened Like some of the slaves from the Spartacus show. Only reason for height is because she is depicted that way. But since we have a shorter Superman than Batman the heights don't matter. But the gadot chick is kinda frail framed so no amount of beef will make her look battle tested.

She doesn't have to be muscular, but she does have to be brawny (which is a terrible way to describe a woman). However, that should still involve some tone, and to be tall, beautiful, brawny/toned, and being able to act... That's still a tall order.

I was reading on another forum where they are comparing Gal Gadot to Lynda Carter when she played Wonder Woman. All the arguments about too skinny etc came up and one guy posted statistics.

Lynda Carter is 5'9 Gal Gadot is 5'9" Height for each actress
37-25-35 for Carter and 34-24-34 for Gadot Measurements for each actress.

So half an inch shorter, 3 inches less in bust, 1 inch in the waist, 1 inch in the hips.

Adrianne Palicki who played her in the failed 2011 pilot had almost identical measurements as Godot 1 inch more waist and was the same height but she has fake breasts.

A lot of people despite how cheesy the 70s show was think Lynda Carter was a great Wonder Woman. I agree, Physically she looked beautiful and sexy also she had the sweetness the character needed.

So how much do these measurements count? Physically she's not a string bean obviously. I think the one thing Wonder Woman needs besides looking good in the costume is her face needs to be somewhat innocent and sweet. I don't know how this actress will pull that off but I think it is key. Comic fans may like the warrior woman but moviegoers will balk if she comes off too butch. I think this is why we haven't had a Wonder Woman movie up to this point. That said this actress has a huge task ahead of her.

I think ultimately this movie and the next are going to disappoint. MOS wasn't stellar and this is the same team on this and then Justice League. If they pull this one off I will be amazed because they are doing it backwards. A new Batman "so soon afer Rises" and Wonder Woman who hasn't been onscreen live in 35 years. I hope it will be good, I loved Avengers and hope DC can have a good JL movie but with no other movies coming out to build the universe just a Superman Batman and then add all the rest it seems doomed.

okay....I have no idea who she is, but yeah, that's closer to what I'm talking about. She's not super muscular, but she's well toned and looks tough...that works for me just as well as body builder.
I will admit that it would be hard to find a person who is built correctly and who can act, but that doesn't seem to stop most of the women in Hollywood from getting roles, Megan Fox, Halle Barry, Scarlett Johansson (I think I spelled that wrong) have all been in action movies and none of them can act their way out of a wet paper bag (maybe I'm a little hard on Scarlett, I haven't made up my mind about her yet). So if skinny pretty women who can't act can get roles as tough chicks, then why not toned body builders who also can't act? They're both going to suck anyway...lol.
