(I put this post here for everyone to see it)





I would like to see Freida Pinto as one of the Amazons.
Also Isabel Lucas would be a perfect amazon or a Wonder Girl (Cassandra Sandsmark)

Yeah, that's his point. The whole "she's too frail" argument is not really credible at this point. If in six months to a year, when she's had time to train/bulk up, she's still this skinny, then maybe you'll have an actual case. But right now, you don't.

For the other amazons, I suggest Franka Potente, Eva Green, Mila Kunis and Asia Argento.
Not Eva Green. She's my #1 choice to play Circe.

Then you've both misunderstood. I never said Gal couldn't/wouldn't get fitter, that's obvious. I'm saying since Amazonians have typically been portrayed to be of similar builds, it only makes sense they cast around Gal.

At this point, Gal is frail. And she has a very specific frame. So in that sense you're casting a fairly small net in terms of supporting cast. They can all bulk up, sure, but as to not upstage their "lead", they would be best to cast women who are in the same build range as Gal right now. That way whatever physique they reach at training's end, they will be on equal plane.

That really doesn't mean Snyder cast her because of his actual physique. He obviously saw smth on her.
Then that doesn't mean they can't be all the same size. Ones can be smaller, bigger. The important thing is the fighting style. And now Gadot is training many martial arts even with swords.

Though my first preference is Monica Belluci

If not her then how about

Briget Moynahan. 42 years old and she looks quite a bit like Gal and she's a good actress. She's on my list of actresses that would have been a great WW if the film was made 10-15 years ago.

Casting PHILIPPUS
Chancellor of the Amazons/Hand of the Queen/Chief Adviser



Sophie Okonedo (Age: 45, Height: 5' 8")



Nia Long (Age: 43, Height: 5' 2")


Regina King (Age: 43, Height: 5' 3")



Taraji P. Henson (age: 43, Height: 5' 5")



Sanaa Lathan (Age: 42, Height: 5' 7")



And although she would make an excellent Philippus, I would prefer to see Viola Davis (Age: 48, Height: 5' 5") as Amanda Waller!

Jennifer Connelly is my choice because she and Gal look like they could actually be related.

Monica Bellucci for Hippolyta ! I think she looks more like Gal. But I wouldn't complain if Connelly got it either. In fact, she's probably my second choice.

I like the idea of Regina King in the role. I think that she'd do well.

I am sorry, I can't see Connelly as Hippolyta, especially for Gal's Diana. If the pick is an American actress, then I hope it's one that has shown the range to do convincing accents of any kind. I can't say that about Jennifer.

The answer for my fantasy Marriage? Yes. At least since Brotherhood Of The Wolf. For Hippolyta? I remain to be convinced.

This may be a bit of a different suggestion, but I nominate Gina Torres as Hippolyta. Statuesque beauty, that gorgeous hair, and the amazing skin.
(I actually think a younger Gina Torres could have been a Wonderful Diana)

Yep. The other side of Gal. She is a mixture of Natalie and Padme for sure Too bad she's with Marvel of course. Thor 2 was pretty bad though (imo) so maybe we can sway her back to DC
