The cat is out of the bag; Gal Gadot, the gorgeous Miss Israel turned model and actress has been reported to play Wonder Woman in the movie “Batman vs. Superman.” Gal Gadot has worked with the late Paul Walker in “Fast & Furious”, and has been one of the memorable characters in seasons 1, 5 and 6 as Gisele Harabo.
Reactions to the casting of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman are more encouraging than the reactions when Ben Affleck was announced as Batman.
Here are some reactions on Twitter:
“Fun facts: Gal Godot, the just-confirmed new Wonder Woman, spent 2 years in the Israeli Defense Force and is an avid motorcycle rider.”
“Critics say that the new Wonder Woman, cast as Gal Godot, is too thin. So what, exactly, *are* the right dimensions?”
“I wasn’t going to watch the Batman/Superman movie but I’ve just learned Gal Godot is playing Wonder Woman and these changes everything.”
Gal Gadot fits the role to a T because she has been with the Women for Israeli Defense Forces for two years and she loves bikes. What more, she has the right curves for a super-heroine. While a few people tweeted she was too thin for the role, most Netizens believed she has all the sterling credentials to play Wonder Woman, and are excited about it.
She tweeted about Paul Walker too saying:
Gal Gadot @GalGadot 1 Dec
“Lost a dear friend today. So sudden and tragic – @RealPaulWalker was a great man with a big heart and passion. RIP.”
“Batman vs. Superman’ also stars Ben Affleck as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman and is due to open in theaters on July 2015.
