Gal Gadot, the Israeli actress who was recently cast as Wonder Woman, has signed a three-picture deal with Warner Bros., Variety has confirmed. We’re told Gadot will play the role in not only the upcoming “Batman-Superman” flick, but in a Justice League movie and a Wonder Woman standalone film.

 WONDER WOMAN STANDALONE FILM

It probably says something about how jaded I am at this point that half of me wants to get excited about this but the other half of me is just expecting to hear in a year that it’s been postponed or cancelled or whatever.
That said- hey! This is still a LOT closer to a WW movie than we were yesterday!!
I really hope this ends up happening. :-)

Gal Gadot Finally Talks About Wonder Woman

The Israeli beauty finally speaks about taking on the iconic role as well as addresses some fans’…

View Post

there you go for people complaining she doesn’t meet the standards

So you’re not going to gain a little weight and start eating carbs before filming begins?

It’s the physical preparations that I’m starting now. A very serious training regime – Kung Fu, kickboxing, swords, jujutsu, Brazilian…1,000 and 1 things…I’ll gain body mass.

I JUST REALLY LOVE HER RESPONSE OKAY

AND WAIT IT GETS BETTER

It’s been said that you’re too skinny for the part. Wonder Woman is large-breasted, is that going to change?
Hmm. I represent the Wonder Women of the new world. Breasts… anyone can buy for 9,000 shekels and everything is fine. By the way, Wonder Woman is amazonian, and historically accurate amazonian women actually had only one breast. So, if I’d really go “by the book”…it’d be problematic.


while it’s not actually historically accurate that’s still such a GREAT response

living-in-a-fictional-reality:

primegundam:

I’ve been listening to a lot of people’s reactions and theories to Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and her possible stand alone movie, and one thing about the discussion has jumped out at me. 

One of the topics brought up often about a Wonder Woman movie is who would be the villain and a lot of people scratch their heads and say things like, “Well, I don’t know who they would use for the villain. I can’t think of any moniker Wonder Woman villains so they should probably just make one up.” 

And that just vexes me. Now if they announced a Batman or Spider-Man or Superman movie and said they weren’t going to use any of their villains and they were making one up for their films, the thousands of sweaty nerds and half of the general public would flip their collected shits.

Just because you can’t name an iconic Wonder Woman villain doesn’t mean she doesn’t have any. I don’t even read that much Wonder Woman and I can name at least ten villains, WITHOUT going to Wikipedia, they could use for her first film. 

Something about that notion just rubs me as inherently sexist and willingly ignorant. 

I’m with you 100% on this I mean it’s like noone’s even seen Superfriends or Justice League and witnessed the badassery that is The Cheetah and you don’t even need to pick up a comic book to know that. i know there’s other villains but Cheetah keeps WW on her toes from a hand to hand aspect whereas Circe or anyone else would be a bit different.

IMO, the perfect choice for a Wonder Woman villain would actually be Ares.

Reasons:

#1 - Per George Perez’s classic WW run, Ares is the archenemy not only of Wonder Woman but of all the Amazons. He’s the one who drove them to seclusion on Themyscira, and he’s the reason Diana chooses to enter Man’s World.

#2 - It emphasizes Diana’s ties to Greek mythology, which I think is essential for a WW movie. And this is something unique to Diana among the top-tier DC heroes, something you don’t see with Superman or Batman or any other member of the Justice League. It makes her story different. The Marvel movies have been having huge success with characters from Norse mythology - why shouldn’t DC do the same with Greek?

#3 - We want to establish right off the bat that Diana is hugely powerful and badass - what says that more than having her archenemy be a literal god? And the god of War, no less! If any haters want to whine that WW is just a weak girl, or she’s a lame superhero whose only powers are her invisible jet and her lasso, or she’s clearly a stupid character because of her costume - can you think of a better way to shut them up than saying “Wonder Woman can go up against the God of War and win”?

#4 - On the flipside, we want to establish that Diana is powerful and badass, and a fierce warrior when necessary, but we also want to establish that she prefers peace and would rather put an end to violence whenever possible. (Something many depictions get wrong, turning her from badass but peace-loving to a lover of aggression and violence.) To that end, I think it’s wonderfully symbolically powerful to have her enemy literally be War. Ares can represent the kind of violence and aggression that Diana stands against, while Diana represents the honorable warrior who knows how to win battles but would rather establish peace.

Just my two cents.

"Am I interested? I don’t know. I mean, we’ll see. I hope that I can be involved with a woman on screen where we’re not in a love triangle. That would be fun. Maybe where we team up together and we work as teammates instead of adversaries."

Something like this, perhaps?

Lynda Carter Weighs in the Problems of a Wonder Woman Movie: “They Miss the Point”

dcwomenkickingass:

Lynda Carter has some thoughts about why there is no Wonder Woman movie and they show that the woman who played the character during the 1970s has better insight into her than the people who get paid to think about the character:

"I think they try to just make her a female version of a male superhero, and that’s not what she is," observes Lynda. "She is an Amazon Princess and she’s got really strong sisterhood values. She’s smart, and she just happens to be beautiful and super strong, and she has these great cool things like these bracelets and boomerang headband and non-lethal kinds of ways of dealing with people. She’s just saying, like, ‘Get a grip!’ all the time. … She slaps the hands of the bad guys."

"Maybe they need a female writer who gets it. I’ve often tried not to say that, but I think it’s the truth. It’s like, ‘Hellooooo guys, get a female that understands what that’s all about.’ You look at any society that suppresses women, and it’s violent. Look around the world. … There’s a humanity that they’re missing. There’s got to be a sweetness, a kindness, a goodness in the character. The rest takes care of itself."

I find it refreshing to not hear someone say “she’s tricky” or “we have to be careful” or “she’s complicated” isn’t it?

Carter is participating in the DC Comics “We can be Heroes” fund raiser and if you $10K you’ll get to meet her as well as tour the DC offices. You can buy that (and help raise funs for a good cause here)

Anyone got $10K they don’t need? Send it my way!
