Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman Debuts at Last

Well, I though that Diana Prince might only have a cameo in the new Batman V. Superman movie, and certainly wouldn’t be in costume yet. But Zack Snyder just proved me wrong at SDCC, debuting Wonder Woman as the last part of the film’s “Holy Trinity.” She will be in the film, though apparently isn’t important enough to squeeze into the title.

Many have criticized Gal Gadot for being too model-y to play the part, as the role requires someone sturdier and less wisp-ish. I think this photo proves with the right costume and workout routine, most actresses can probably make for a badass looking Wonder Woman, her included.

My problem with Gadot has never been her look, it’s that while Marvel takes even secondary female roles and gives them to stellar actresses like Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman and Gwenyth Paltrow, Wonder Woman is literally the most famous female supehero ever, and DC casts the one girl from the Fast and the Furious movies. No not that one, the other one. Still no, the other one. There you go.

Perhaps its unfair to judge Gadot on one relatively paltry role, but it does seem like something of a risk. I suppose we won’t know how this will all play out until the film itself, but at least we know she’ll look the part at the very least.
