Jesse Eisenberg Gal Gadot Featured UPDATED: Jesse Eisenberg Cast as Lex Luthor (Official)UPDATE: Jesse Eisenberg officially cast as Lex Luthor. See below… Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder have announced that actress Gal Gadot will play Wonder Woman in the sequel to Man of Steel. Gadot has previously appeared in three Fast & Furious films.

UPDATE: (Official) Jesse Eisenberg Cast as Lex Luthor

Jesse Eisenberg Gal Gadot UPDATED: Jesse Eisenberg Cast as Lex Luthor (Official)

Statement from Zack Snyder regarding the casting of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor:

“Lex Luthor is often considered the most notorious of Superman’s rivals, his unsavory reputation preceding him since 1940,” Snyder said in Warner Bros’ announcement of the castings today. “What’s great about Lex is that he exists beyond the confines of the stereotypical nefarious villain. He’s a complicated and sophisticated character whose intellect, wealth and prominence position him as one of the few mortals able to challenge the incredible might of Superman. Having Jesse in the role allows us to explore that interesting dynamic, and also take the character in some new and unexpected directions.”

Personally, I would have gone with Adam Harris, but that’s just me.

The story at Deadline also mentions that Jeremy Irons has been cast as Alfred—incidentally, the one bit of casting I consider spot-on. With the casting of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman having been met with universal praise (critics have noted her perfect body type for the role, in addition to her wealth of acting experience), Man of Steel 2: The Quickening seems to be off to a great start!

UPDATE: Jason Momoa as Doomsday?

Gal Gadot Wonder Woman Jason Momoa UPDATED: Jesse Eisenberg Cast as Lex Luthor (Official)

The Hollywood Reporter claims that actor Jason Momoa is in negotiations to appear in the Man of Steel sequel, which, as everyone knows by now, will feature beautiful actress Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. While Momoa’s role is unknown, THR hints that Doomsday is a distinct possibility.

Readers around here should find this news interesting for at least a couple of reasons—primarily because it raises the possibility that we might see some Wonder Woman vs. Doomsday action. While it’s a remote possibility, it might at least make for an interesting topic of conversation at various superheroine forums.

While I personally found Man of Steel to be an abysmal movie-watching experience (similar to having my soul bludgeoned), the sequel sounds like it might be at least a little more enjoyable. At least we get to look at Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, if nothing else.

Anyway, here’s an excerpt from The Hollywood Reporter’s exclusive:

It’s unclear whom Momoa will play due to the Kryptonite lock on the project’s details. There’s been speculation that the movie’s villain could be Doomsday, a Kryptonian scientifically engineered into an intergalactic killing machine. Doomsday famously “killed” Superman in the comics, which became a media event in 1992. The character’s existence is even hinted in the extras of the Man of Steel Blu-ray.

Original Post: Gal Gadot cast as Wonder Woman

Statement from Zack Snyder:

“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.”

Are you sure that the bikini picture is hers? Doesn’t look like the same girl.

2 JadeOwl December 4, 2013 at 1:04 pm

Looks-wise, Gal Gadot is OK, as long as she hits the gym and stays there until the movie comes out.

Jaime Alexander would’ve been a better choice though.

3 HM December 4, 2013 at 1:24 pm

@JadeOwl – You’re right—that bikini girl was someone else. Whoever that was, SHE should be playing Wonder Woman. But we’ll see how this Gal Gadot does in the role.

I found Jamie Alexander kind of bland in “Thor: The Dark Sequel,” so I’m not that disappointed to see someone else cast as Wonder Woman.

4 WP December 4, 2013 at 2:14 pm

I don’t know. Gal Gadot might turn out to be a fantastic actress, but they could travel back in time & borrow a young Lynda Carter, combine her with a fusion of Gina Carano & Jaime Alexander, and inject her with the acting range of Meryl Streep, creating the ultimate genetically engineered Wonder Woman actress, and it wouldn’t mean a damn thing if the character isn’t written properly.

Zack Snyder might talk about how Wonder Woman is this great character and he can’t wait to bring to life on screen, but I’ve heard lip-service like that before.

I’ll get my hopes up when I see it.

5 Da Jinx December 4, 2013 at 2:26 pm

Hopefully he learned what he did wrong with “Sucker Punch” and mold a good super-heroine role this time around.

6 Steve December 4, 2013 at 3:03 pm

I guarantee the film will be as poor as man of steel, namely a superhero movie with no story, just an attempt to rush everything to keep up with Marvel

7 The Superheroines December 4, 2013 at 3:26 pm

I’m with you guys on this one… fairly disappointed. I feel like there could have been a much better choice, just in character alone, let alone looks-wise… but I thought the same thing about Anne Hathaway as Catwoman… :/

Logan

8 RJ123 December 4, 2013 at 3:56 pm

Hopefully she will be good but i have my doubts, i wish they had cast Taylor Cole but don’t think she is famous enough but she certainly has the look.

9 Decendingskulls December 4, 2013 at 4:17 pm

The irony is, she looks a little like Alex David in the 2nd picture.

10 Paul GPF December 4, 2013 at 5:06 pm

Hope she puts on a few pounds of muscle for the role, but more importantly I hope Warner manage to write a decent script.

11 Rye December 4, 2013 at 5:14 pm

I personally think she is very attractive… I guarantee they will have her bulk up a bit for the role. My doubts are in the costume… I will be shocked if we aren’t staring at pants or some other conservative mockup but let’s keep our fingers crossed.

12 Redmountain December 4, 2013 at 5:33 pm

Just don’t see it with this choice. She has a lot of work in the gym to do, so many better choices out there, but oh well.

This just screams more desperation from DC wanting to get a Justice League movie going so they can keep up with Marvel on the big screen. Avengers worked because all the characters mostly had their own stand alone films first. DC films have been crap besides Batman so good luck pulling of Justice League when none of your characters have had decent films prior. Smashing Batman and WW into a Superman film doesn’t count.

13 Mike J December 4, 2013 at 5:50 pm

She wouldn’t have been my first choice. She a little, well a lot on the thin side for me for Wonder Woman. I remember in Fast 5, the scene where she went to get the hand print, she’s a pole.

But I was completely against the idea of Anne Hathaway as Catwoman when it was announced so I’ll willing to give it a chance.

14 Diana Knight December 4, 2013 at 6:01 pm

She’s gorgeous. To skinny. I agree with you guys that think she needs to hit the gym. But I suppose we’ll just have to see the finished product on-screen.

I wasn’t and still am not a fan of Hathaway as CW,.. or Cavill as Superman for that matter. He’s real pretty to look at and I loved him on the Tudors,.. but he’s not Supes.

Just my two-cents.

15 KAR December 4, 2013 at 6:09 pm

In all of Hollywood, THIS is the sexiest, most dominant-looking chick they could find to play Wonder Woman? How about finding a girl with a pair of thighs instead of a starvation case with no hips? Or get a six-footer (well, at least 5’10″). Gal Godot is so thin, with such feeble shoulders. How about an actress who exudes some toughness and athleticism? Another Tinseltown disappointment in the endless quest to cast SOMEBODY as Wonder Woman to appear in something somewhere. I’m sure they’ll use the excuse that she can act, as if Wonder Woman is Shakespeare and other actresses CAN’T act. How hard is it to yell “By the goddess Hera!” and swing your fists a few times?

16 sugarcoater December 4, 2013 at 6:45 pm

Hollywood seems to make most actresses that are fairly good-looking look quite hot. My concern, as has been mentioned in previous posts, is the costume. I think DC and the various producers are concerned with the outcry from feminist groups if Wonder Woman is given the Lynda Carter look: sexy blue shorts/panties with stars, the revealing top, and knee-high red boots. That’s the look I would love to see, and I imagine many other Wonder Woman fans would love to see that look as well. Unfortunately, it’s more politically correct and job-wise it’s safer to offend comic book geeks like me than it is to offend women’s groups. And even though the outcry would only be a tempest in a teapot, it would still be enough to make DC and the producers shudder at the risk of being falsely labeled as misogynists. So they will play it safe (despite WW having but a cameo appearance, from what I gather), and give her some warrior-esque garb that will somewhat mimic the original Wonder Woman look, but it won’t hardly be enough to conjure up the Lynda Carter Wonder Woman.

Still, at least it’s a start. I’m more interested in seeing what 2014 brings in terms of the superheroine production value from the producers who post here. 2013 was one of the best years in the genre (in my humble opinion), and I can’t wait to see these producers continue to hone their craft.

17 Blx December 4, 2013 at 6:57 pm

I’m not worried about her being thin. Snyder brought 300 to life and every single one who was supposed to be ripped, was ripped. If she does the work and starts eating fucktons of food and protein, she’ll look awesome.

18 Diana Knight December 4, 2013 at 7:16 pm

The question is,.. Is the production going to have her do that,.. Or does Warner Bros think that the model look is good for WW?

As far as costume,.. I think they’ll wind up using the leather armour design that’s already been seen on Smallville and in a lot of pre-production mock ups (i.e. Joel Schumaker).

Let’s hear it for leather! LOL. but I’m biased. =)

19 KAR December 4, 2013 at 8:02 pm

Maybe I have been spoiled by too many videos of Christina Carter, Rachel Steele, and Diana Knight as Wonder Woman, or close versions thereof. Those are the kinds of bodies I’m thinking of when I’m envisioning Wonder Woman. Recently I saw Lynda Carter guest-starring on some TV sitcom, and she could STILL play Wonder Woman, after all these years, she looks so good. Another actress who would make a great Wonder Woman is Stana Katic, who plays the homicide detective on the TV show CASTLE. She is towering, has the hair and face for it, and moves with a nice strut.

20 JadeOwl December 4, 2013 at 8:07 pm

@Diana Knight: I have no doubt that they’ll bulk her up. If Michael Bay, of all people, could see the need to tell Megan Fox to gain 10 lbs. of muscle for Transformers, I doubt the 15 to 20 lbs. that Gal needs to put on should be an issue with the producers or the studio.

21 JadeOwl December 4, 2013 at 8:14 pm

Stana Katic is the same height as Gal Gadot.

It’s just that she’s always in high heels so she can be in the same frame as Nathan Fillion without having to resort to Scully boxes.

22 jei December 4, 2013 at 9:28 pm

Enough said.

23 Diana Knight December 4, 2013 at 9:42 pm

Wonder Woman’s gots to have da boobies!

24 Andrew C. December 5, 2013 at 7:54 am

I don’t know about her work as an actress but I think she is too thin to play a warrior woman. From my perspective, Warner has chosen a series of actresses which nothing to do with Wonder Woman. I believe the most important female character from comic deserves more attention from Warner.

25 JadeOwl December 5, 2013 at 7:57 am

They can do wonders with push-up bras these days. ;)

26 Andrew C. December 5, 2013 at 8:04 am

One more thing: We never know what happens on backstage to chose someone to play this or that role. Once the actress or actor has been chosen to the role, the directors and producers will say anything to defend the cast. Anything! I JUST CAN’T BELIEVE THAT IN USA, WITH MILLIONS OF ACTRESSES WOMEN WAITING FOR A GOOD CHANCE, THEY CAN’T FIND SOMEONE WITH TALENT AND WITH A BETTER “LOOK” FOR WONDER WOMAN!

27 Primal December 5, 2013 at 9:00 am

I really don’t know why DC has so much trouble crossing over into making worthwhile motion pictures. Man of steel was really rushed. Maybe they felt like everyone more or less knows the Smallville back ground and they wanted to add more to it. Either way, WW would deserve her OWN intro movie and the role deserves an actress with the stature and basic body type the screams AMAZON. It wouldn’t matter how much this actress works out, she looks like every model in a Victoria’s Secrets catalog.

I only just recently saw Man of Steel, and except a few good scenes I don’t feel like I would have missed much. I will probably see this one when I have a bought of insomnia

28 TJ18 December 5, 2013 at 9:07 am

What a JOKE! Hollywood ruins everything, yet again. Could have been tons of other chicks who are far more attractive and better bodies than this stick figure. What a crime.
I hope this movie flops.

29 PowerGirlFanBoy December 5, 2013 at 9:36 am

Man of Steel sucked and this next movie will too. Everything feels rushed just to put it out there for the masses and make money.

30 evangeline von Winter December 5, 2013 at 10:29 am

Here’s my idea.
Take all the little indie producers who have made these amazing fan films, the latest wonder woman one, the Batgirl spoiled series, etc.
give them the budget and watch them make something so amazing!
its a crying shame that the fan films have nailed it because they realized where the faults lay with trying to bring a comic to life and did it without the corporate suits getting in the way.

This is a mess and nothing is going to change that.
This chick looks like she’s a teenager for crying out loud.

31 Tpsh3000 December 5, 2013 at 1:21 pm

Let’s see: they characters that needs portrayal is a statuesque, athletic, blue eyed alien Amazon with the looks of a stunning and sophisticated 30 years old human woman; They pick a skeletal, brown-eyed supermodel type who, although being 28, looks like she could be your average 18 years old college student from Nevada, only on a crash diet. Just brilliant :D

32 Angleman December 5, 2013 at 2:57 pm

Snyder is full of it.

“Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role.”

This statement alone proves to me that he has never read a single WW comic in his life or ever seen a picture of Lynda Carter. Seeing as the actress bears no resemblance to this iconic super heroine it’s almost certain her costume will bear NO resemblance to her iconic look.

But quite honestly this movie already had train wreck written all over it so they can now “blame” it’s poor performance on WW’s appearance and it’ll then be another decade before anyone tries again.

But as an embarrassingly large number of fan films have proven over the past few years, it really ISN’T hard to bring a believable and true to the comic version of WW to the screen.

The thought of seeing my favourite character brought to life on the big screen should have me giddy with excitement. Instead I just feel depressed….

33 personnal December 5, 2013 at 3:36 pm

I also think she is very very attractive, it’s a very good choice, i think everyone will be very surprised of her performance. i agree this choice.

34 Redmountain December 5, 2013 at 4:39 pm

This just screams rush job so that they can get a JLA movie going. They are falling so far behind Marvel in terms of the big screen they are desperate. WW is one of the MAJOR characters in the Justice League and deserves her own film before they even think about going forward. Dumping her into a Superman movie along with Batman is just stupid to begin with. Batman shouldn’t even be in the movie to begin with, unless they think Superman is too weak to carry his own title. DC is a mess, both with films and comics.

Also a horrible choice to play WW.

35 Eagle December 5, 2013 at 4:42 pm

I don’t disagree with the Gal Gadot cast. She’s quite pretty with features that aren’t boring. I think we all agree on the Lynda Carter cast for the TV show. She wasn’t a boxer or wrestler. She was a Miss World USA.

Anyways, I do agree with everyone who has their fingers crossed. :-)

36 Jei December 6, 2013 at 12:33 am

I’m going to give them the benefit of the doubt with this casting because I’m not a famous filmmaker/writer/casting agent. But my initial thought was “WTF!”

She’s beautiful and has a sexy accent and judging by her very petite frame, they must be going for “power of the gods” instead of a powerful amazon who is enhanced by the gods, know what I mean?

Either way, I’m really really hoping this next Man of Steel is good! I would love a Justice League! If all goes well, I hope to see another Supergirl movie some time before I die.

37 jei December 6, 2013 at 12:38 am

@RedMountain:

Hopefully it’s just a cameo or something minor. After an alien invasion, it seems logical that the Amazons would send someone out to see what’s up with the world, you know? Or maybe Diana steals the magical items and heads off herself. Who knows? After they’ve introduced WW, I hope they’ll do a standalone soon after.

I’m sure there won’t be much peril for WW in Man of Steel 2 but we can hope!

38 Torrent December 6, 2013 at 9:22 am

Don’t forget this girl has experience serving in the IDF. She is no wall flower.

39 Kaizar December 6, 2013 at 4:14 pm

The Superman/Batman movie will be recorded with Handheld 3D cameras, which means we will be seeing Wonder Woman in 3D.

This actress will most likely have somewhat more bigger breast by the time they start recording during 2014.

(:

40 Kaizar December 6, 2013 at 4:18 pm

Here’s a list of the awesome movies of 2014:

http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=173039

41 David December 6, 2013 at 4:21 pm

She is no Lynda Carter, not even close!

42 Kaizar December 6, 2013 at 5:06 pm

@David

She’s not suppose to be Linda Carter, she’s suppose to Wonder Woman.

But yeah, she doesn’t look like Linda Carter, not that it matters.

Plus lets not forget Hollywood make-up which made a certain actor look like a young Bruce Willis in Looper.

43 Thomas B. December 7, 2013 at 6:58 pm

I hope they can bulk her up a bit. Is it me or would Jennifer Lawrence not have been a perfect Wonder Woman??? She has the demeanor and the look for sure.

44 Andrew C. December 7, 2013 at 10:15 pm

She can be as good actress she can. But She’s also too skinny to convince as a warrior woman who has spent her life training sports and martial arts!

ONCE AGAIN: TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO SKINNY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

45 Kaizar December 7, 2013 at 10:29 pm

Olivia Wilde got built for Tron Legacy, so I’m sure they will whip her into shape for this role, just like other actors went thru for their own muscular role, like Spider Man & Twilight, LOL.

46 Andrew C. December 7, 2013 at 11:06 pm

Olivia Wilde? Wonderful actress!! Beautiful woman!! I would be much more satisfied with her for Wonder Woman role! But I think she would need a harder fisical work to play Diana. Much more than she did on TRON!! Much more!!! We are talking about WONDER WOMAN!!!! Do not get me wrong. I don’t want a bodybuilder as Wonder Woman. Just an athletic and talent Actress! Bridget Regan, Gemma Arterton, Charlize Theron, Evangeline Lilly, Abbie Cornish … With all these names and many many others, why to chose a “fashion woman”? Wonder Woman is not a TOP MODEL!!!! She is a warrior!! A Warrior!!!! A “SUPERHEROINE”! SUPER!!! The MOST POWERFUL woman character from comics!!!

47 Raiderman December 8, 2013 at 2:14 am

I will hold judgement on if Gal Gadot was the right choice or not until I see the movie. As noted in an earlier comment she will bulk up and will be interesting how she looks in the costume at that time. Me personally would have liked to seen one of my favorites (Kelly Kula) from Heroine Legends who is a trained actress and does most of her own stunts get the role. Bottom line when I think of WW I think Lynda Carter so no matter who got the role, for me it would be a let down.

48 jaybird December 8, 2013 at 3:28 am

I hope like everyone else she bulks up a little. I would love to see her using a lot of her super strength in this film, because in the bionic woman new show there just was not enough of her using her new bionics to boot. Get her lifting some fake weights, even front end of cars, and smashing bricks. That might make her super enough…

49 Coulumbia December 8, 2013 at 5:15 am

I too will hold judgment on Gadot… She definitely is attractive… seems to be she can act, but is she “Superheroine” material? Many of the comments here reflect what perhaps a lot of us have in mind when we think of a Superheroine… especially Wonder Woman. Even if we ignore the Icon of Lynda Carter (she is tough to beat), the comic book character seemed to cal for a bit more bulk of a woman…. the image of an “Amazon” is not a petite sexy little woman, but one of stature and strength. I don’t know if you can “bulk” her up enough??

Trying not to be to sarcastic to Hollywood, it will be a challenge for Gadot to fit the bill, but who knows? The proof will be in the “wonder”ment of Hollywood’s magic (or failure). I certainly don’t see it being the fault of Gadot, but those who would cast her for the role.

50 Andrew C. December 8, 2013 at 9:22 am

Any actress will need to work out to play Wonder Woman, no matter whom. However in some cases the actress starts from ZERO. And maybe… Maybe…

Remember what happened with “NIKITA”? How many seasons did we have with PETA WILSON??? How many Seasons with the other actress? The skinny one? Excelent actress, but TOOOO Skinny for a fighter!!! Then we had to say bye bye to NIKITA!!! I don’t wanna see this happening with Wonder Woman.

I love Wonder Woman! No metter who get this role I’ll always be rooting for the best. I’m just saying that in this case we’re starting from the ZERO. With all those actress they chosed the thinnest. A good and lovely actress, but the thinnest.

51 Kaizar December 8, 2013 at 1:35 pm

For a skinny lady, she has naturally big breast for such a thin female, so she obviously has the best metabolism out of all the actresses that would be consider, which makes me suspect they had 1 or so biologist help them choose, since they can always get anyone in shape. Her body is clearly more capable of the Wonder Woman figure the character deserves to have.

52 Andrew C. December 8, 2013 at 11:13 pm

Well, we’re not talking about how much beautiful Miss Gal Gadot is or how big her breasts are or not. We’re talking a profile and she doesn’t looks like a warrior to me. Just think about a warrior woman and watch the picture below:

http://ilarge.listal.com/image/2524029/936full-gal-gadot.jpg

Her personal trainer and nutricionist will have a lot of work to try to transform that to something as much close as possible to this:

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-JhdcymXJAXc/UBg4YWXl4SI/AAAAAAAADa4/vCIzgA-fzUc/s1600/wonder_woman_by_jeffach-d59egpa.jpg

You can travell on net searching for any art about Wonder Woman and you’ll note that “every single one is an ATHLETIC woman”. We probably disagree about what is an athletic woman. To me is something to far from any idea with Miss Gal Gadot. I believe Mr Bruce Timm and Alex Ross would agree with me.

53 JadeOwl December 9, 2013 at 9:22 am

Nobody is denying that she’s much too skinny as she is now.

The issue is whether she can put on 15 to 20 lbs of muscle between now and the time she has to start filming her scenes. I think it’s doable.

And on that note, I find this drawing earily appropiate and funny: http://fav.me/d6x9ipc

54 Andrew C. December 9, 2013 at 6:17 pm

@JadeOwl, the real question is: Why to chose an Actress knowing she needs 20lbs more, if you have other good options? I don’t know if the producers thinks she needs to get weight.

55 Maar13 December 10, 2013 at 2:39 am

Although I believe Jason Momoa is a great a pretty good actor and like a lot of his movies and work on GOT…Doomsday?!!! What the F’ are these guys smoking?!! Seriously they are turning this into? What’s next? Bane and The Joker?

56 Vishtar December 10, 2013 at 7:07 am

Here’s a thought.

It’s a long shot but what if they are going to recreate “The Man who has Everything” and Momoa is playing Mongul?

Or maybe that is just wishful thinking for the fight with WW.

57 Redmountain December 10, 2013 at 9:27 am

So Wonder Woman, Batman, and now Doomsday. Wow…this all seems strangely familiar to a fan made Superman vs. Doomsday short that was made on youtube…which is probably better than this movie will be. Better WW actress to…if these

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XDr5Pdb88mM

58 Andrew C. December 10, 2013 at 10:52 am

All strong, athletic and good actors to play male characters. By the way, what do we have for the most powerful heroine from the comics? A skinny, lovely and fragile woman. Poor Mr. Masterson!

59 h0ly123 December 10, 2013 at 12:20 pm

People that have a problem with Gal Gadot but that think Jaimie Alexander would have been great need to do their research.

They’re both 5 9′, they’re both thin, neither are curvy or have much up top.

I can understand the Gina Carrano camp’s complaints considering they have completely different body types, but Gal and Jaimie? While she weighs a little more, let’s not pretend she’s got child bearing hips and is rocking D cups. If you’ve got a problem with Gal then you’ve got a problem with Jaimie too.

60 Dan Femwrestlingfan December 10, 2013 at 1:11 pm

I got to say I am starting to dread this movie. I was in the lot that liked Man Of Steel so I was happy for a sequel, and while I thought it might be too soon Batman being in it sounded interesting. I even wasn’t against Ben Aflek playing him (seriously, people are over reacting to that one. Is everyone really not over the Jennifer Aniston thing STILL?)

But they are throwing in Wonder Woman now? And rumors of Doomsday, what does Doomsday belong in a movie with Batman in it.

Are they just rushing to try and include as many JLA members as possible as soon as possible so they can go onto try and copy Avengers success. They might want to remember Avengers success was largely due to SLOW buildup. It’s like they are just throwing their entire checklist into one movie.

Will there be any time for Superman and Lois Lane in this thing? Is he going to be overshadowed in his second move? Will the Daily Planet and crew even have time for more than a cameo in this thing?

I will be watching it, but this movie is sounding like it could turn into a clusterfuck. Especially if Wonder Woman is more than a very brief cameo. Superman movies should be about SUPERMAN. Give WW and Aflek as Batman their own movies if they want to build to a JLA film.

61 TJ18 December 10, 2013 at 3:41 pm

People who think this is actress is a good choice either never read a comic, or are just ignorant. I’ll go with a mixture of both. SMH.

62 Mike J December 10, 2013 at 6:33 pm

The more I learn about this movie the worse I think it’s going to be. Whoever is doing the casting should be fired.

63 Andrew C. December 10, 2013 at 7:45 pm

@ h0ly123,
Are you really comparing Jamie Alexander and Gal Gadot? Both are thin women but Jaimie has much more to do with the profile of Wonder Woman! At first, Jaimie is a dark hair and blue eyed woman. Second, she’s thin, not “bony” like Miss Gadot. Jaimie has much more muscle traits in her natural body line than miss Gadot. Look at the pictures below and see for yourself:

http://i1011.photobucket.com/albums/af238/jj1116/gal-gadot_l1.jpg

It is much more easy take an actress like Jaimie Alexander and work her body to play Diana than a fashion woman like Gal Gadot.

64 TJ18 December 11, 2013 at 8:34 am

Jaime Alexander > Gal Gadot

Gina Carano > Jamie Alexander

65 Andrew C. December 11, 2013 at 4:45 pm

@TJ18,

Jaimie Alexander is an Actress. Gina Carano is working on it.

Are you really trying to use hair and eye color as if dye and contacts don’t exist? Body type is the issue at hand here, and the fact of the matter is that Jaimie isn’t any more in line with Wonder Woman than Gal is and the pictures you posted don’t change that.

They’re both the same height and either one of them of a curvy or muscular figure. Again, I can see how someone could support Gina Carano and not Gal, but supporting Gal and not Jaimie doesn’t make any sense to me.

@hOly123, Yes! I got It. At first, I don’t need a blue eyed and dark hair to get my satisfaction. I just need a good and athletic actress. This is very easy to find in USA. Second, if you don’t see the differences between Jaimie and Gal after those two pictures I posted, I really don’t know what to say anymore. See what you need, can, or want to see. It is your oppinion but I never did hear anything like you’re saying. Fact is that Jaimie is much more welcome to play Diane than Gal. And I agree with that.

Horrible wonder woman. It’s a big mistake. Gina Carano would be the best

Joaquin Phoenix as Lex Luthor?
Oh dear Gods!

My pick for Luthor?

“Say my name”
“Lex….Luthor”
“You’re God dammed right”

I wish it were still august because when i heard the news in August I was thrilled.

I’m with Andrew. Jamie is thin but looks more athletic than Gal. She should be a nice Wonder Woman, not so curvy but believable. Gal looks too frail.

Of course I do like both. But it’s only my taste. I’m more into slender women than curvaceous.

@Krispin, thanks! Be sure most Wonder Woman fans are with us!!! Just got the news about J. Phoenix for Lex Luthor. Great choice. I thinking with my self: why they choose all the best for the male characters?????!!!!!

Gal Gadot better add some meat.

Oh who am I kidding, hollywood always makes actresses get in shape for these roles.

Can’t wait to see her new & improve body. Hope her body ends up like certain fitness models.
does anyone know what kind of workouts they will make her do for this role?

73 sweetdreams777 February 3, 2014 at 7:50 pm

Gal Gadot will make a fine WonderWoman , she will look awesome in the WonderWoman costume…

74 Sugarcoater February 3, 2014 at 9:35 pm

I think the real question is what will the uniform look like. Please let it be similar to Linda Carter’s/George Perez’s WW style.

75 OOAgent February 3, 2014 at 11:49 pm

I believe she said she’s being trained in a bunch of things as part of her prep, including swordplay. As for costume, i’ve really grown attached to the New 52 style uniform with the silver, blue, and red color scheme.

76 Angleman February 4, 2014 at 3:22 am

As I stated on another post, Hollywood won’t have the balls to put the classic costume up on screen as they’ll be paranoid about being accused of somehow being sexist. They’re going to bottle it and she will almost certainly either have some 300/Xena style carbage on or…god forbid…the infamous jacket and pant combo from Odyssey. The chances of seeing the WW we all know and love up on screen are virtually ZERO. Surely the miscasting of Gadot in the role tells you that….

77 Kaizar February 4, 2014 at 8:24 pm

I believe that since this is a straight to theaters movie, that the costume will be in the shape and form of the Linda Carter costume, but showing of her back, and making the pelvis part of the costume more skinny looking, then the Linda Carter costume was.

At least I hope.

There’s a big difference between making a new Wonder Woman Show and making a Wonder Woman movie.

With a Movie, you can do a lot of things you could never do with a TV series. (As Seth Macfarlane has explain on Larry King Live 1 or so years ago)

78 Mike J February 4, 2014 at 8:46 pm

I doubt the costume will be anything like the TV show. They’ll be too afraid of being accused of the over sexualization of WW. I definitely see pants. It will probably look something like the costume they were going to use for the failed TV show.

79 Kaizar February 4, 2014 at 10:03 pm

@Mike J

The failed TV Show only had pants for one scene, and the rest of it was Linda Carter style.

Yeah, I saw the crappy pilot.

80 Angleman February 5, 2014 at 11:59 am

@Kaizar

Sorry, that’s not correct.
She only wore the briefs for the final fight scene. All other appearances were either in shiny or non shiny pants.
And you can’t really count the laughable,cheap looking Halloween costume that Palicki was wearing at the end as being anything like Lynda’s famous costume!

@Mike J

Totally agree. They WILL choke and avoid putting the iconic costume up on screen. But I’m expecting a 300/Xena type outfit which is what they’ve hinted at, which will vaguely resemble the WW costume colour wise – in other words, it won’t be WW at all on screen.

81 sweetdreams777 February 8, 2014 at 9:11 pm

“All of us WonderWoman fans have been waiting for decades to see WonderWoman in a movie… ” I hope we see Gal Gadot in the iconic classic Linda Carter style WonderWoman costume … ” I know its a big ask but ” Hollywood can you please give us back our WonderWoman”…

82 Kaizar February 9, 2014 at 3:53 am

Well, there’s a lot that can be done in a PG-13 movie that you could never do in any TV Show.
