It was announced a few days ago (I’ve been outa the loop and didn’t hear till this morning) that Wonder Woman will be showing up in Man of Steel 2: Batfleck Rises
It’s also been hinted that other familiar faces from the Batman universe will either appear or be referenced.
First concern at this news is that they’re moving too fast. WB are looking enviously at the cash-cow that is The Avengers
and are force feeding their own franchise all manner of unhealthy things in an effort to hasten its development.
If they don’t devote the same amount of time to character development as the Marvel films did, the general movie-going audience isn’t going to have a real desire to see a JLA flick as they will simply feel no connection to the characters.Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America
. There were 5 movies before we got to Avengers. It made people invest in the universe that was being presented.
WB doesn’t look set on playing that kind of long-game, and it’s going to bite them where it hurts: the wallet.
Second concern: Gal Gadot has been cast as the Woman of Wonder.
She’s the skinny chick from Fast & Furious 4/5/6
. The one with no shape at all and who looks like she’d snap in two if she sneezed.
A twig is playing the Queen of the Amazons.
WHO THE F**K IS IN CHARGE OF CASTING AT WARNER BROS?!
How can you rationally select a walking, talking, eating-disorder as a kick-ass warrior woman when there are actresses like Gina Carano out there? She’d be my choice for the role because she not only looks like she could beat the sh*t out of bad-guys; she legitimately could, as she’s a trained martial artist.
Oh, and she’d look damn fine while doing it.Gal Gadot - Professional twigGina Carano - Not a twig
