Israeli actress/model Gal Gadot says she is the right actress to portray Wonder Woman in the hotly anticipated “Man of steel” sequel. She certainly has enough spunk to take on the character based on her recent response to criticism that she’s too skinny to play the Amazonian princess.
Gadot was recently interviewed on Good Evening with Gai Pines, this is what she had to say:
Q: It’s been said that you’re too skinny for the part. Wonder Woman is large-breasted, is that going to change?
A: Hmm. I represent the Wonder Women of the new world. Breasts… anyone can buy for 9,000 shekels and everything is fine. By the way, Wonder Woman is amazonian, and historically accurate amazonian women actually had only one breast. So, if I’d really go “by the book”…it’d be problematic.
Q: So you’re not going to gain a little weight and start eating carbs before filming begins?
A: It’s the physical preparations that I’m starting now. A very serious training regime – Kung Fu, kickboxing, swords, jujutsu, Brazilian…1,000 and 1 things…I’ll gain body mass.
It is safe to say that most of us are just happy to see Wonder Woman getting some airtime which will hopefully pave the way for her very own silver screen movie one day.
Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tusjihara once teased at the possibility of a possible tentpole project saying:
“We need to get Wonder Woman on the big screen or TV.” Read more!
Skinny or not, we are exited so see Gadot taking on the role as Wonder Woman.
Along with Wonder Woman we can expect appearances by Dick Grayson or Nightwing, The Flash and Lex Luthor. Henry Cavill will reprise his role as Superman, while Ben Affleck will take on the role as Batman. “Man of Steel 2″ is set to be released on July 17, 2015.
