    Lynda Carter had those bewitching eyes. She had a very good body no doubt but what made her so striking was those Eyes IMO.

    This girl now is pretty but she just does not stand out because her body is not a knock out body like some other actresses and she does not have that wow factor like Lynda Carter had with those eyes.

    She's going to have to lift some weights and add a few lbs.
    I think the lead photo in the OP was her max skinny.

    Carter's waist was amazingly slender. She was a real attractive Lady, for sure. It would be hard for anybody to match up to Carter in that department (IMO), but this choice, this one I don't love. No problems with the actress herself but I just don't think she's a good fit.

    I guess I'm stereo typed.

    Not familiar with this woman as an actress, but I just don't understand the casting as of now from a strict appearance standpoint.

    Thought Gina Carano would've been an obvious choice, so I can see why they may have steered clear of that. But you would've at least imagined someone in that same mold filling the role.


    Somewhat of a side note: Hollywood Star Power/ Marvel v DC
    These castings are pretty odd. Marvel did a great job of launching their avengers franchise by casting actual stars, starting with Downey Jr. Then Norton (although he didn't return). Chris Evans was at least a recognizable guy from his work elsewhere. Chris Hemsworth wasn't, but that's probably why they surrounded him with Anthony Hopkins, Natalie Portman, Stellan Skarsgard, Renee Russo, etc... later on Samuel L Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner. Vin Diesel WILL be making a mark on the franchise soon, as well as Benecio Del Toro, and rumor has it; Paul Rudd.

    DC on the other hand isn't exactly going that route.

    It seems like they feel like the general public is more familiar with their heros already, so they just need to make a visually stunning film (hence: Snyder). But IMO, they need to exceed what Marvel has done/is doing/will do, and get relevant and recognizable faces. It's kind of ironic that they've casted the most recognizable face (Affleck) as the current most recognizable hero for them, as if Batman needed any help. It's Superman who needs help distinguishing himself from all the less than B listers that recent filled the role: Dean Cain, Brandon Routh, Tom Weller... who???). Now Wonder Woman is some girl that doesn't look like Wonder Woman and nobody even knows. I mean, it would've made more sense if it was Megan Fox, who also doesn't look like wonder woman, isn't a great actress, but at least will draw a crowd.

    I'm rooting for DC, but I think they really should try to help themselves more with their casting.

    If you have Batman V Superman why even introduce Wonder Woman? If you are going for a "gritty realism" in a Supes movie how do you explain her with the lasso of truth and the other garbage? I don't get this at all. If it's just a set up for a Justice league flick it may be worse than I expected. Maybe the boys will fight over who brings her to the prom. I give up.

    Yeah she doesn't look anything like a Wonder Woman. Hopefully they have her hitting the gym pretty hard for the role, and perhaps with the right clothes/lighting/make up she can look alright.

    Still not very excited for this movie unless I hear some incredibly good reviews from sources I tend to trust. Did not like Batman Begins, Dark Knight Rises, or Man of Steel, so I'll be keeping my eye on this one.

    The way you guys are talking, it's like none of you have seen Fast and Furious 4-6 to know who she is... date Night as well, I.e. the girl in Mark Wahlberg's apartment.

    I've seen her in one of those F&F movies. She is an attractive woman, but I would not say she is an athletic woman. I don't think WW has to be a woman who has a large bra cup size. She at least needs to look like someone who can kick butt. She is supposed to be a warrior.

    You have an image that has been built up over decades of comic books and the TV series. NONE of them show a thin woman which Gal is. That may or may not be important but it has to be considered.

    I didn't realize before that Gina Carano was the daughter of former Dallas Cowboys QB Glenn Carano.
