Gal Gadot has been announced as Wonder Woman in the sequel to Man of Steel. The name sound familiar? You might remember her from Fast Five and Fast & Furious 6. Those are the 2 movies that pretty much put her on the map. Drop dead gorgeous model from Israel. She won the Miss Israel title back in 2004. But the question we ask is, does she fit the role? There have already been comments on the web since the announcement that she is too skinny to play Wonder Woman.
Here are some of the actresses that we were on our short list for the role:
Megan Fox – Yes, though we haven’t seen much of her after the Transformers movies, she would be a good fit. Though, would she have the skills to pull off the look of a warrior princess? – probably not.
Jaimie Alexander – We have seen her as Lady Sif in the Thor movies and she definitely has the skills. But surely in the movies after, there will scheduling conflicts and Marvel will definitely would not want to give her up.
Gemma Arterton – Her role as Gretel in the 2013 movie: Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters did not do so well in the box office. Looking back at her filmogrpahy, she’s probably not getting the right role (or luck). She could be a great Wonder Woman.
Though, my favorite would be
Kate Beckinsale – We have all seen the Underworld movies. I think that states more than enough – just cast her already!!! Ha ha.
Yes, It is a colossal task to decide who will be the Warrior Princess of Amazon. I think, no matter who the studio selects, the fans somewhere will just have to be disappointed. The comics have made the character larger than life & for someone to fill that role – it’s nearly impossible.
