    Every single actor brought their A-game in this movie. And a lot of the credit goes to Patty for that. But Pine was probably my favorite. That line and I'm paraphrasing a bit because I don't remember the exact words, "You don't think I want to tell you there's only this one guy to blame?" that whole exchange was just incredibly well-acted and incredibly moving.

    What I liked about WW is the movie embraced Gadot's innate cuteness.

    The Ice Cream bit was one of my favorite moments.

    It's funny, but I felt like BvS kind of hid the "cuteness", but I think Jenkins
    allowed for spaces for that to naturally occur.

    I think that cute/affable aspect is also true to Cavill, but I think the movies haven't allowed for a whole lot of those types of scenes.

    Reactions to her casting from NeoGaf. Just a couple.

    Most of these probably came from Campea. :o

    The sad thing is, Campea's reacted with total hate. Not just, "Not my actress."

    But letting her be the scapegoat for everything bad with WB's handling from DC.

    I'm almost hoping for an interview with Gadot and Campea just so he can apologize. That probably won't happen, though.

    He's not going to apologise. He'd going to give her backhanded compliments that are actually his way of putting her down further.

    So much for Gal representing everything that is bad with WB/DC. Now she, along with Patty Jenkins, represent everything that is good with them. How could Campea keep up that idea?

    The ultimate irony and feast of crow would be Gadot getting some nominations during awards season.

    Hope it happens!

    He's gonna attribute her performance to Jenkins alone-then if she isn't as good in JL he's gonna stomp on her.

    It's as if he likes being right above giving people a chance.

    But back to Gal. I liked her more than RDJ in the past several IM movies.

    It's like she has the innocence of Reeve, the likeability of Chris Evans, and the combative assertiveness of ScarJo.

    Go WW :)

    He should've played Ego in GOTG2, because he has a very big one to maintain. :o

    The funny thing is that Natalie is horrible in the Thor movies despite her awards. Seeing what they did with Gal who never proved herself in a film makes me excited what they can do with Jason.
    I just saw the clip of Gal mocking the people who said her breast are too small, it's sad that she knows about it but she mocked it in a great way.

    Don't hold your breathe in regard to Campea. Even as recently as today's Collider movie talk, he's still on his Gal Gadot bashing marathon. It was nice to see both Mark Ellis and Jon Schnepp call him out on it though.

    It's funny, but I feel that it's less that Gadot is a perfect actress (though she knocked it out of the park in this film) and more that she already possesses the caring, sweet, passionate and tough qualities of WW. Like they could hire a big star and she probably wouldn't feel as genuine as Gal.

    Thanks Zack and Patty http://www.digitalspy.com/movies/wo...wonder-woman-patty-jenkins-gal-gadot-casting/

    I think being able to project a charismatic, endearing personality that seems to be anchored at least somewhat in the actor's natural demeanor is a classic movie-star quality associated with actors like Harrison Ford and Jimmy Stewart, who tend to retain at least some version of those qualities across multiple roles.

    Of course these are also good actors, who can do more specialized things, but I do think that very broad "movie-star" appeal is a particular talent that not all good actors have.

    It remains to be seen with Gadot, but her performance in this movie has that sort of quality, imho.

    They just uploaded the video and it seems that they cut that part out. I really wanted to hear what Ellis & Schnepp had to say.
