The New Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot, Speaks

Posted by David Konow

Okay, so by now we all know that Batman Vs Superman is going to have more than Batman and Superman, in fact, the rumors are true that they’ve just cast Wonder Woman in the film.

 
Gal Gadot, an actress from Israel who was also in Fast & Furious 6, got the coveted Wonder Woman role, and she recently addressed playing the famous comic book amazon, and how she’ll be different from the previous Wonder Woman incarnations. 
 
As Collider reports, Godot was asked about the fact that Wonder Woman was usually well endowed, but she replied, “I represent the Wonder Women of the new world. Breasts…anyone can buy 9,000 shekels…By the way, Wonder Woman is Amazonian, and historically accurate Amazonian women actually had only one breast. So, if I’d really go ‘by the book’…it’d be problematic.” 
 
As in any superhero movie, Gadot has launched an intense physical regimen to play the role including “Kung-fu, kickboxing, swords, jujutsu, Brazilian…1,000 and 1 things…I’ll gain body mass.” 
 
While Gadot was incredibly excited to get the role, the Twittersphere predictably erupted with dubious reaction, and a few tweets the Hollywood Reporter compiled include the following…“So progressive of the WB to announce Wonder Woman won’t get her own movie a week after 2 of the biggest female-lead movies ever opened.” “Gal Godot is too skinny! Jennifer Lawrence is too fat! This chair is juuuust right.” And finally, “Hey we haven’t even seen the new Wonder Woman actress in costume yet – hold your horses, nerds.”
