This news is apparently several months old but I just read it. The comments on Wired are full of incredulity. Let me ask you: Do you think Gal Gadot is Wonder Woman material?

When I hear strong kick-ass amazon woman the first thing I think of is a scrawny anorexic runway model.

1995 Lucy, or 2013 Lucy...Too old. And they would never cast her as another warrior queen. Too cliche'

Be glad that I didn't suggest Jacqueline Bisset.

I think she would be a good choice, BUT she looks a little too much like Lynda Carter.

Don't get me wrong. I was just thinking, are you trying to cast Wonder Women, or Lynda Carter Wonder Women?

It's kind of like trying to cast a reboot Conan the Barbarian with someone that looks like Arnold.

Still a little petite IMHO but she kicked ass as Gretel and they can do a lot with camera angles and CG.

A lot of folks on the Wired article plugging Carano. You could do a lot worse than an MMA fighter turned actress. But, as someone relatively new to acting with no formal instruction that might be an issue. Although, if you've seen her Hollywood combat work she does a pretty good job of acting like her opponents are challenging when she could easily tear them apart.

Haven't really seen her acting in much other than the series but I think Cobie Smulders from How I Met Your Mother would have been perfect for Wonder Woman looks-wise.



Ha ha, I just realized she was in Avengers. Hence I think she might've done Wonder Woman justice... (league).

You know she is the voice of Wonder Woman for the Lego Movie, right?

Sweet. Well there you go, they should've given her the live screen time.

wow Gentlemen, mammary size has zero relevance to competence. A petite woman can be just as "wondrous". They certainly have been in my experience. wow

It hardly matters, it'll all be about the special effects anyway, like all other superhero flicks nowadays. They just need an actress who looks good in the costume.

Petite doesn't refer to bust size. There are plenty of petite women with larger busts. When I say petite I'm referring to the fact that her overall body type is small, not any one feature.

And you are right, Gal is perfectly physically competent, being ex-Israeli military. She just doesn't fit the image created by the comics.
