Gal could be the good Bond girl, Antje could be the bad one. Damn that Bond gets to bed them both regardless of which side they fall on.

Gal auditioned for Olga Kurylenko's Quantum of Solace character when she was about to start law school. Now Gal has won the Wonder Woman role over Olga, funny how life works.

Gal went to law school?

It's just as well she didn't get Quantum of Solace anyway. I feel that Olga was wasted on that movie. Maybe Gal could get a better Bond film which isn't so drab and dreary and ashamed to actually be a Bond movie. And where people could see what's actually going on!

She mentioned it when promoting Fast 6 in the Huffpost Live interview with her. But she went for one day before auditioning for QoS.

For the purpose of refuting the "flat chested" comment I suggest that anyone check out the pic of Gal in that white suit jacket, sans shirt underneath. She's not Kate Upton but she's more than feminine enough. As for her acting? We'll really all have to wait. In interviews she seems like the right type, but I find it hard to judge from the FAST films, myself since there's not much there beyond playing "competent criminal femme."

It's not so much any perceived inaccuracy that makes that comment unfortunate in my eyes, but the fact that someone would say that at all. The size of her chest makes no difference. The character shouldn't be defined by breasts, nor should breast size make an actress inappropriate for the role. People shouldn't be defined by a body part. That would be like me saying Affleck shouldn't be batman because his bulge isn't big enough. He had better work on getting that thing enlarged if he wants to fill out his codpiece.

Just to play devil's advocate, fanboys are very particular about physical perfection in their characters. The complaints against Hugh Jackman and Chris Hemsworth when they were first cast are a testament to this, looking back.

It definitely is more unfair for women, considering breasts cannot be "worked out", but all the same I don't think fanboys really care about sex or body parts, per se. They're just looking at the overall picture and critique down from there.

Yes.
With age, sometimes you just learn that double standards just "are" MrsK. (And as a dude... Yeah, we actually are judged by the size of our "equipment" all the time. It's a huge, pardon the pun , part of the male psyche, for good or ill. It is just so.) But there are those that want WW to be some busty sex bomb, and let's not forget that Marston's early work with the character had her presented in a very cheesecake meets S&M way too. For myself? I don't care about her bust size, I care that the actress can accomplish making WW seem like an empathetic, yet focused and insanely competent super-heroine, period, full stop.

It's funny, i remember seeing Inception and purposely trying to pay attention to JGL the most because i had just heard that he was going to play the Riddler in the new Batman. That rumor never panned out, but months later it was revealed that it was actually Tom Hardy who was the villain. The one from Inception that i thought was the coolest, but i had zero idea he would ever be approached. It was my introduction to him too.

The same thing happened when i saw Fast 6 last year.

I went in focusing on Luke Evans (who kinda played a Batman-ish role), because we were all fancasting him at the time for the reboot. But the one that impressed me the most, not the acting by the way, but i thought was the most bad-ass, was Gal Gadot. Back then i never thought of her for anything DC.

Now here we are and she was the one cast for Wonder Woman.

Maybe there will be a hat-trick!

I hate that I'm saying this but her breast size is an easy "fix" if they want her to be a bit bustier. But I really, really could care less if she's a B cup or a D cup.

Even if any sexism was taken out of that comment, obsessing over a character being exactly like the comics is silly. These are real humans playing them and many comic physiques are not even found in nature. Plus, there is no way to make everything an exact match when every artist or film maker will perceive a character differently. I don't really care if "that's what fanboys do". It's not going to happen and going on about an impossible thing is silly.

But feminity is viewed as a weakness, isn't it? I thought that was the whole point of Wonder Woman, to turn femininity into strength as opposed to weakness. If a woman has masculine traits, it's celebrated in the modern world.

Also, muscle mass is much harder to fake than bigger boobs. Can't Photoshop it in motion, can't enhance it with makeup since it will be pretty much everywhere.

Want bigger boobs, put some more padding in the bra and dust some makeup down there to enhance the cleavage. Easy peasy, takes 5 minutes. Not worth the headache it's causing in this thread.

And even with men who are "too short," height is easy to fake. Did anyone really gripe how tiny Tom Hardy's Bane was, after they actually saw TDKR?

It would seem so. I care how she going to look ripping a tank's gun turret off more than how she's gonna look in a string bikini. But then again, I like my porn to be porn and my legitimate entertainment to be legit.

This is why I will never understand watching something JUST because a hot actress is in it. Back in my High School days everyone thought I was odd because I had no love for BAYWATCH. (These guys were NOT watching it ironically btw) My answer was that it wasn't worth my time no matter how many fit and busty chicks in bikinis there were. FRIEND:"Dude, you gotta see the new Halle Berry film, she's so hot" ME: "Is she going to actually strip down in this film and have insanely hot sex with her co star? Is the answer no? Well seeing as she is a mediocre actress with terrible choice in the parts she chooses to play, there's not much to keep me interested, is there?" Maybe some guys can hand wave Denise Richards as a scientific genius, but I just can't stand that kind of pandering when it comes to casting female parts.

Wonder Woman doesn't need to have big boobs. People should just get used to that idea. :]

Exactly. Wonder Woman's breasts will be whatever size the director, make-up artists and costume artists decide to make them. They could be the same size as Gal Gadot's natural breasts. Or they could rival Dolly Parton's unnatural breasts for size. I'd be more happy with the former rather than the latter.

And I'd be even happier if Wonder Woman was a well-written, three-dimensional character with clear development and motivation and an independent role that wasn't directly tied to the stories of either Superman or Batman.

Exactly.

She can be the most ripped, well-endowed female superhero ever, but if she's written like crap, she'd still be weak.
