The topic of Gal Gadot playing Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder‘s upcoming Man of Steel sequel, Batman vs. Superman, has been one of very heated discussion. First there’s the issue of Snyder putting a third major superhero into the film. Then there’s the possibility of finally getting a Wonder Woman movie. Finally, some have even criticized the casting saying Gadot is too skinny to play the super-heroine. While all this debate has been circling, everyone in the Batman vs. Superman camp has more or less kept quiet.
Now an Israeli entertainment show has what they’re touting as Gadot’s first interview since being cast. In it she talks about the training, her body type and more. Unfortunately, the whole thing is in Hebrew, but thanks to the magic of the Internet, we’ve got a translation below. Read More »

While superhero films have become dominant at the box office in the past decade, there still hasn’t been one that successfully brought a major female hero to the screen. There have been a couple big attempts, such as Elektra and Catwoman, but perhaps thanks to the failures of both those efforts, no studio seems willing to risk a load of cash on a solo film for a female character. Just witness Kevin Feige’s reponse to interest in a solo female Marvel character over this past weekend.
And what of Wonder Woman, at DC? The character has been the focus of feature development efforts for years, and would have been part of George Miller’s Justice League, had that come to fruition. There have been multiple efforts to create a new TV series for Wonder Woman, too, the most notable of which was scuttled after a pilot shoot.
Lately, there has been suspicion that Wonder Woman will end up in Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel sequel, Batman Vs Superman. As if introducing a new Batman (Ben Affleck) wasn’t enough, and having to get Superman and Bats together, there are those wondering how Wonder Woman could fit in. And yet the policy of late seems to be to introduce a female hero in one film anchored by male heroes, and then perhaps spin her off into a standalone title.
So what does Warner Bros. have to say about that? Read More »
