After today’s surprising and puzzling casting news, I have decided to let you know my thoughts on the casting on the most important and influential superheroine of all time.
I have been wanting Wonder Woman to be on the big screen for years. I knew there was no chance of her joining Batman in The Dark Knight trilogy but when Man Of Steel was announced, I though that maybe Diana was coming to the silver screen. My heart has always been set on Thor’s Jaimie Alexander for the part and recent rumours got me excited that she may just be cast.
But it was not to be. Gadot was cast today. I liked her in the Fast & Furious movies, but didn’t take much notice of her to be quite honest. I thought she was great eye candy and a kick ass character but that was it. She didn’t have the screen time to really show us if she could act.
For me, I don’t care if this incarnation of Wonder Woman has big boobs, because that is not the essence of the character. She needs some muscle though, so I believe Snyder will have her put on a training program almost immediately.
So, I’m relatively pleased with the decision as she had the looks and can do action, but what we need to see is whether she can carry a film and act as powerful and commanding as Lady Diana.
What are your thoughts?
