    Gal Gadot to star as Wonder Woman in 'Batman Vs. Superman'

    After decades of waiting in the wings while the boys had all the fun — a frustrating exile best epitomized by a failed television pilot — Wonder Woman is finally set to return in the biggest way imaginable. Gal Gadot, the Israeli model and actress who appeared as Gisele Harrabo in the Fast and Furious franchise, will star as the iconic Amazon in Batman Vs. Superman.

    If she just stood on the screen for the full length of the movie, I'd get my money's worth

    Batman fights Superman? Why? How is that even a fair fight?

    She is too thin and frankly too light up top. An Amazon is a thicker, more robust and busty type then she is. However with careful body work and costuming she could look the part. She will need to beef up some and look stronger.

    obviously it ain't. Supposedly the trickery and sneakiness of Batman is supposed to match the overwhelming physical advantages of Superman. Which of course is BS because Superman is pretty smark himself.

    Agree. Don't see how she can fill out that costume.

    Just give the role to Katy Perry and call it a day. Who cares if she can act or not :D

    Awful, this is what we get from the casting super geniuses in Hollywood, Ben Afflek as Batman and this for Wonder Woman.

    "Too light" is an understatement!

    Like a 12-year old boy!

    :eek:

    Specifically Warner Bros. They have a box office gold mine staring them in the face, but decisions are left up to suits who never read a comic book in their lives.

    They should have given Gina Corano a call. My bet is she can act just as well as this chick and she sure as hell ain't ugly but she doesn't look like a model.

    I'm sure Zach Snyder will make Gadot look good though, he did wonder in Suckerpunch, just not sure she'll have the physical presence.

    Yeah physical presence is one of the major parts of being Wonder Woman. This girl just does not have it.

    Oddly enough she is only an inch shorter and a few pounds lighter than Lynda Carter was when she played wonder woman. The only notable size difference is the chest. Lynda was a C and this one is a B.

    From my perspective, the woman in the photo accompanying this article doesn't even qualify as an "A".

    She looked skinny to me as well. So I wanted to look up her height/weight vs Lynda Carter. Found some sites that gave measurements. One inch shorter, 2-5 pounds lighter (which she looks much smaller) and one cup size difference.

    Carter was very slender, which helped amplify the curves she did have. I have seen them both listed at 5'-9".
