I’m bored and can’t sleep so now I’m going to spam my boring blog with things I’ve been pinning on my even less interesting Pinterest account.
After my intial reaction to Batman vs. Superman (which is not the title for the film) earlier this year, I mentioned a few times on this site that I was confident Wonder Woman would be appearing in the Man of Steel sequel. What I wasn’t sure of is who would be playing her.
Well, here she is: Gal Gadot! I want to wish Gal (above images via Stndrd) good luck, those are some mighty big boots to fill.
I noticed that in all the press releases, they refer to her a Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. What that says to me is that we’ll be seeing Wonder Woman in her alter ego for a good portion of the film. But how? As Bruce’s love interest? As Superman’s love interest? As a bad ass government operative? Who knows. I just hope Zack Snyder gives this character the respect she deserves in her big screen debut…
I really hope they don’t mishandle this. I’m taking a “wait and see” approach on this casting choice, but I am just very happy that they are bringing her into the fold. It only makes sense if they want to build to a “Justice League” film. Then again at the same time I’m also apprehensive about all this coming in the first sequel to “Man of Steel”. It would have been my preference that we get one more Superman-centric film, something beyond the expansive origin story we got with Snyder’s first MOS. I was so amped-up coming out of that movie. I couldn’t wait to see more Superman stories with Cavill, Amy Adams, Lawrence Fishburne.
I know it’s kind of boring and uninspired to bitch about the weather but this stunningly accurate and frustrating.
