Gal Gadot, former model, former Miss Israel, and actress from some of the The Fast and the Furious movies, has been cast as Wonder Woman in the sequel to Man of Steel, the movie with Ben Affleck playing the part of Batman and Henry Cavill reprising the role of Superman.
Casting Gadot as the Amazon warrior princess seems strange. She appears to be way too thin for the part. I don’t know if they plan on bulking her up with a regiment of anabolic steroids and human growth hormone, or maybe they’ll just have her eat a sandwich.
Considering that she looks nothing like Wonder Woman, what landed her the role, her acting chops? She’s mostly known for her role in a few of the The Fast and the Furious movies. How good could he acting really be? IMDB says that she was also in an episode of Entourage. If they say so.
This has got to be a real kick in the teeth to all those actresses out there who aren’t skin and bones and as a result, miss out on so many opportunities unjustly not afforded to them. Finally a role comes up in a major motion picture where it’s OK for a woman to look like a woman and not a skinny boy, and they give it to the former model and international beauty pageant contestant.
They could have at least given the part to a so-called “plus-size” model, someone who actually looks like an Amazon warrior princess. Henry Cavill looks like Superman. Ben Affleck looks like Batman. Why can’t the actress paying Wonder Woman look like Wonder Woman?
