Did I say swimsuit? I was referring to her pose. the costume is a given. Her beauty and natural appeal is a given. What makes you think the way WW is written caters to the male fantasy? Her costume maybe, but please can you give examples of how WW as a character 'caters to the male fantasy'?

Yes, and I'm referring to her swim suit that makes her look practically naked - that's where the "sex appeal" comes in. The fact that all the men in this thread can talk about is how beautiful and sexy Gadot is as if she's a piece of meat and yet say nothing about her ability is because there is no "ability" to go on. Girlfriend can't act.

Nothing you wouldn't see at any swimming pool or beach anywhere.

We don't know what role she'll be playing in the movie so it's hard to say. I'm actually hoping that she has a meaty role so I can get a sense of her acting ability.

Trust me, I want to be wrong about her ability. I want Gadot to completely blow me away and knock it out of the park...but from the roles I have seen her in...eeesh.....

Yup. At the end of the day, we will not know untill we have seen the movie.

The fact is i was not excited about her casting. I am now. She could be bad, or average, but i believe in her. (and certainly not because of her good looks ) i believe that she has the qualities for a interpretation of the character. Some don't believe in it (based on fast and furious. A franchise where no actors is really that good imo. ) that's fine. We will see.

potential as an actress. You said that she has not proven to be one. For some well respected director apparently she has.(not saying that he can't be wrong... OR that you have the same tastes that he has...now from the soap role i've seen her play, she is a good actress imo) That doesn't mean that she will be good as wonder woman yup. Hoping.

When it comes to the new movie, it would be v. cool to see a couple of frames of the island Themyscira. Maybe show the lush beaches, some of the buildings.

I love when someone says Gal Gadot can't act or will not be a good Wonder Woman. Those are such misplaced, declarative statements that you can't help but chuckle at them. It's as if people think casting directors are just big doofuses who don't know what they're doing, or that Zack Snyder picked her simply because she's hot.

Meanwhile, the more logical/reasonable people understand that she obviously screen-tested for the role (probably multiple times) and the filmmakers saw something in her that made them believe she could pull it off. Does anyone really think the casting decision of the first on-film Wonder Woman was taken lightly and that no thought was put into it? Also, is it unheard of for a relative newcomer to impress audiences and critics alike?

A couple of comments about topics in here:

WW has been written as and treated like a sex object in comics before, so Nicky has a point there. Luckily, the other main stream CBMs are moving away from crap like that. The women in MOS weren't highly sexualized, so that at least gives me hope that WW won't be.

In terms of how Gadot acts when not working, she can do whatever she feels like. I find her little kissy faces or finger biting annoying. I got flamed for daring to say that before. I think people even suggested I was questioning her parenting ability and right to just have fun. I'm not. I just find those faces annoying and "twinky." I don't want her to do that as WW and I have no reason to assume that she will.

As for the smiling, I absolutely hope she does that as WW. There's nothing inherently sexual about a smile. Sure, they could make it suggestive, but they don't have to. She could just be...happy. Imagine if WW didn't smile. People would go on about how "grimdark" she was thanks to Snyder (and probably Nolan even though he's not involved...we all know he came up with this whole being serious thing).

Gal has a lovely smile and the smiling pics of her are my favorite. Bring on a smiling WW!

I just hope they don't portray her character like they did in "Justice League: War" where she doesn't know anything about American customs and has a one track warrior queen mentality. I thought that was pretty dumb. I hope they make her more intelligent and complex than that. I don't mind them making her sound like a warrior god at points but I hope they don't make her vocabulary too much like an old fashioned Greek Queen like Leana Headley from 300 or as they did in War. I hope they give her a nice balance of modern American but enough of the Themyscira warrior queen type verbatim to make her different from the rest of the cast.

I'm not a big Wonder Woman fan so maybe that's not what fans want to see but I think they should modernize her characters vocabulary. Not go too far with it, where she sounds like a foreign valley girl or anything but not strictly like a character from 300 either. I hope they find a good balance.

I think she can be intelligent and complex without knowing much about American customs. People all over the world achieve this everyday. It could in fact lend some gentle humour to the movie.

Stick to a conversation about this actress AS WONDER WOMAN.

Remember that both male and female post on this board, keep it respectful.

STOP with the namecalling, and stop with the posts about other posters....keep it to the topic only.

DO NOT reply to this post, get back to the discussion of this actress as WONDER WOMAN, nothing else.

Heed this warning, infractions are now being given....

I love Diana - so to see her finally on the big screen, for me (like millions of other fans) is a dream come true. Its why I think Gadot should be given the chance, lets see what she can do!

Yeah, that's the hope I have for the direction - Faora and Lois I thought were great so I hope WW is as good if not better.

I've said it before but I think it bears repeating: my original post was in no way shape or form in reference to how she acts in her personal life lol. Some folk here assumed it was for some reason. She's a grown independent woman who can do whatever she likes. I was strictly referring to her persona in 'Fast and Furious', 'Date Night' and 'Knight and Day' - all of which she had to play up the seductress role.

Oh I agree completely but for some reason when Gal Gadot smiles in those movies it comes across as flirting maybe it's because it's often accompanied with bedroom eyes and a low seductive voice.

Agree. There's an opportunity there for some hilarious and awkward situations. The fish out of water persona can be something that distinguishes her from Bruce and Clark. I wouldn't be surprised if Clark and Bruce thought she was a little bit crazy lol

I have a feeling she won't be depicted as naive in this movie. She may in fact be familiar to America since WWII. I think it would be very interesting if this was the case. They could make her alittle in awe of the progress the US has made since her return to the Island.

Do you think she will think it has been all good news? Don't want to start a political discussion, but it is an interesting thought.

If they actually dare to "go there," I reckon she wouldn't be pleased with all of it.

It would be interesting if she came back and was disappointed in some of what had proceeded after she left for home in the 40's. Something like Captain America in that scene in Avengers. "We won the war but they didn't tell me what we lost since" or something along those lines. Do you think it's a possibility?

I doubt a huge summer tent pole would want to risk much introspection. American audiences may find it unpalatable coming from a pretty young lady with a distinctly foreign accent, anyway.

Quoted for freakin' Truth! At this point, I accept the possibility anything could happen but I'm rooting for Gal. I'm tired of all the complaints and even people inserting the same repeated doubts and negative insinuations in their predictions. And I, for one, saw that she had presence in those FF movies and with what she was given, she did great. Now she's being given a script written by an Oscar-winning screenwriter. I expect great things!
