I'm more worried about how they're going to include both Batman and Wonder Woman in this movie with us knowing nothing of how they're involved with this universe yet.

I wouldn't be surprised if Wonder Woman doesn't actually show up until the final scene, or in the post credits sequence.

The creators for this film series already have shown they don't care about the aesthetics of the characters, with Laurence Fishburne as Perry and Jimmy Olsen being a girl. Why so many people are so surprised they went away from expected for WW is beyond me, at this point.

Jimmy Olsen wasn't in the movie. The female Daily Planet employee named "Jenny" is not a female Jimmy Olsen. That was an internet rumor debunked before the film even came out.

DC has already lost the movie wars with bad Man of Steel and worse Green Lantern. They need to refocus on to TV animated and live action. They need to be reminded that all those awesome cartoons from the 80's were nothing more than 30 minute commercials and exploit the hell out of it.

Man of Steel was a box office success, however.

I agree the DCAU and even the YJ and original Titans animated series were the best DC superhero universe stories told in recent years.

Batman:TBATB was also awesome Silver Age goodness.

Ben Affleck as Batman ?
And now this ?

At least Affleck is saying that he was not good in that. Gadot is not physically imposing enough to be Wonder Woman. In My Not So Humble Opinion.

As i've said before, a failed Batman or Superman movie is going to be more successful than a successful movie of literally any other DC character, money-wise.

The difference being that Ben Affleck can actualy play Batman... He has the acting range, talent & can physically pass himself off as Batman.

I don't really care what the internet rumor mill said or what was 'debunked', to the casual audience, the daily planet side kick character was named "Jenny" instead of Jimmy, and that's what most people I know who watched the film thought was done, and was most likely the intent as well.

Gal Gadot's casting doesn't bother me as much as Zach Snyder's continuation as director. We'll get more kick ass fight scenes with no heart behind them.

But THIS fills me with hope that they'll all SMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLALALALALALALALALALOW!!!! WHAT JOHN STEWART...IS...COOKIN'!!!!

Casting Dwayne Johnson as Wonder Woman would have been some really out of the box thinking, I have to say.

Sounds like a brilliant comedy skit ;~)

From what little I've seen of Gal Gadot I have to say I'm worried. Admittedly she might be able to bulk up to look like a warrior woman, but if her acting is as bad as it was in the fast and furious movies...

Personally I'm hoping they cast the Rock as the Floronic Man. Then he and Vin Diesel can finally settle who is the best sentient piece of wood.

I just can't see this.

She doesn't fit the body type of profile of Diana.

Appearing in the Fast & Furious movies isn't acting. That doesn't qualify her at all.

It should be a qualifier for the casting directors to mark her off the list and go "next!"

Dwayne Johnson is plenty entertaining when playing to his strengths. He's often funny and certainly capable in a physical role. I'd like to see him as Namor personally.
