>We tested a bunch of actresses, as you can imagine. But the thing with Gal is that she’s strong, she’s beautiful, and she’s a kind person, which is interesting, but fierce at the same time. It’s that combination of being fierce but kind at the same time that we were looking for. She can get serious, but she’s amazingly fun to be around. And by the way, she really held her own with Ben in the screen test. Ben was like, ‘Whoa, that girl is something else!’ That was a good sign, because Ben is very tough in the scene, and he’s big and commanding. Anytime that you’re doing a test like that and you’re looking at the other person, you’re thinking, ‘Okay, that’s good stuff.’ That was part of the process, and over time as we got to know Gal, we found out how amazing she is.
Man, they are really hyping her up big time. Makes me wonder why they didn't have her speak in any of the trailers so far, though unless they think it would be a better idea to be some big surprise about how great she is, I guess.
well the only scenes they've really shown with her are the action ones. we know she has some scenes out of costume, including one with bruce wayne, so hopefully we'll get a look at it soon.
I think Lex is gonna be the standout, honestly. From the sounds of it, Terrio and Eisenberg went hardcore into creating that character - Eisenberg said it's the best role he's ever been given and if it was the last part he ever played he'd be satisfied.
>Laughable swimsuit costume compared to Bats and Supes based full armor look
Nah. She looked like a joke standing next to the men in the trailer. They looked like heroes ready for action while she looked like she'd stumbled out of a nearby strip club.

God i hope this Hack and his kike mistress die.
How so? Wonder Woman's peculiar brand of strong, almost motherly kindness is certainly not something I see when faggots push her as a feminist icon. And I'd think it's something you'd want to get right if you want to do the character justice.
Are you being serious now? Making her wear battle armor would be both retarded and disrespectful to her historic design, not to mention we'd get so much complaining about pandering to feminists.
Yeah, but that's because she's an Israeli and served in the army there, she's been indoctrinated by the system to think Israel isn't doing anything wrong with their colonialism policies.
Well, it's kinda the same thing you could say about every american who openly supports all of the U.S military actions in the middle east. Lots of innocent people have been killed in the crossfire and they even bombed a medics sans frontieres facility.
Not to steer this completely off topic, but Israelis have a pretty poor opinion of their country's geopolitics, according to polls. Well maybe not poor, but they approve of it less than Americans.
Most Israelis are locked into this situation where they think Israel should pursue a two-state policy rather than continued encroachment, but in practice their options are more limited because they're the only ones in the region who care about a two-state policy; most Palestinians just want to burn down Israel and kill all the Jews.
I mean, really a lot of people do do that. theres a reason why so few american celebrities are hung ho about supporting the troops.
I mean if you press them they'll mumble some positive affirmation for veterans, but it hasn't been fashionable to support american military efforts since ww2.
heck, just look at captain america, even films about literal propaganda figures actively take an anti-war stance. hollywood got subtle with its propaganda. and anything too blatant gets written off as a hack job.
Well it doesn't exactly help Israeli's cause for peace when you have stuff like Netanyahu fearmongering about the muslim threat to Israel mixed with the repeated expansion of the settlements to the occupied territory inflaming the Palestinians and people living in shit conditions thanks to Israel's embargoes and restrictions to movement.
It was still popular during Korea and stuff and it has varied in the years since, it's just that Vietnam changed the way Americans see wars. Now if you're too pro-war you're at the risk of having half the country hating you, while having the other half talking about you like the second coming of Jesus.
I really don't think American Sniper was propaganda at all, but I think it made so much money because it was easy to mistake it for that. Here's a good article on it.
So it's just a Rambo rip-off?
Aside from that, a lot of people are too stupid to see that subtlety, they think Rambo glorifies war like they think Scarface glorifies crime. And that includes many people who like those movies.
First blood's pretty anti-war but then you have the sequels which... well, you know. Turns into macho action spectacle and the anti-war message gets pretty blurry until the last movie where it's back to being about how horribly Rambo's life is.
>But the thing with Gal is that she’s strong, she’s beautiful, and she’s a kind person, which is interesting, but fierce at the same time.
I wish to see Bizzaro world Gal. The only thing I can agree with the guy is she's attractive. I would ruin her asshole with my bbc but other than that I really don't find her to be "strong" in the sense of generating a presence other than "Bitch I will fuck your holes and make you call me daddy."
>Iconic is so totally a buzzword people like to throw around when talking about DC, though heh.
I love Wonder Woman. She is beautiful, strong, and cute. She reminds us all to live with a smile and make the world better.
>"We did… I can’t even remember how many in terms of interviews, but for the final test, I think that we tested six actresses. But we interviewed and saw hundreds, so it was a pretty exhausting process."
Just wondering, who is the others actress, i think Gina Carano was there.
>>"We tested a bunch of actresses, as you can imagine. But the thing with Gal is that she’s strong, she’s beautiful, and she’s a kind person, which is interesting, but fierce at the same time.

And chosen the worst of all.
Remember how they did the same thing for Captain Phasma for the new Starwars?
The same thing is happening with Gadot. They are trying to push their super amazing tough girl that can fight with the boys, and in the end she'll get shoved into the trash so the real stars of the show can get things done.
They were LITERALLY pushing Phasma as the next Bobafett before the movie came out. They would not shut up about how strong and amazing of a female character Phasma was.
Please list all of the hundreds of woman they tried to cast then
>They were LITERALLY pushing Phasma as the next Bobafett
And she was. She did nothing, looked cool and then got pushed over like a bitch, just like Boba
I never really liked her look, she just looks too much like everyone else but shiny and chrome
I think battlefront 2 even had a class that looked like her minus the cape
>You aren't allowed to ignore her being a positive feminist role
Not hard, people that don't get feminism would interpret this as making her dye her hair, and wearing problem glasses. Feminist just want women to be strong, flawed, and competent just like any other male character.
Every time I see the trailers I get mildly interested then remember she's in it.
They're going to lie through their fucking teeth about her performance, she's never been able to act before and an explosion filled CGI fest isn't going to be the place where she learns to.

>hire twig thin skeleon jew girl to play huge amazon warrior with big tits
Just be grateful they didn't cast a stronk independent black womeme
>there are people in this board right now who legitimately believe all the bullshit film makers say about their own movies before release
>Cast Serena Williams type girl as Nebula
>Can act decent
>Role is slightly shrunk but used as lead into full blown WW movie.
Could have worked, would have given a chance to maybe get a real actor for WW and given her another female in her league to bounce off.
>we made a test for Wonder Woman where she acts like misterious girl #5 with Bruce Wayne, because that's Wonder Woman, right? And over time we had to try reasoning the horrible mistake we made, so we forced ourselves to think she's actually good in all the other aspects of the character.
Remember when Snyder cast Malin Akerman as Silk Spectre? I bet he thought she was perfect too. And she is a much better actress than Gal, even if she's not a good actress.
They want a Skeleton Reptilian type to play Wonder Woman.
If have a reboot, forget it.
They will choose another Skeleton.
>literally reddit: the argument
>Feminist just want women to be strong, flawed, and competent just like any other male character.
"Feminists" are a pretty broad category of people with sometimes drastically differing ideologies and standards. The good ones, the bad ones, the #KillAllMen types, they're all feminists.
>calling reddit at every instance
Carano said she was never approached. Off the top of my head, the ones reported to have tested were:
Blurred Lines girl
Quantum of Solace girl
Room in Rome brunette
>in a world where an alien with super strength flies at Mach 5 shooting heat blasts from his eyes and a billionaire philanthropist dresses up like a bat at night and beats criminals half to death
Also, Diana has been thin plenty of times before. Either way, get fucked.
The executives were probably impressed by how many Palestinian she wanted dead.
>Blurred Lines girl
And people still trust Snyder with casting? Holy shit.
I don't know if you CHOSE to ignore it, but her being a muscly mess isn't what she's all about. She's basically GIRL POWER: The Character. She needs to be beautiful, strong and feminine, all three qualities Gal possesses. Crying about how she's "too skinny" is futile.
Get over it already.
>not knowing Billy tries to look like his dad/his ideal version of his older self
He's a 12-15 year old kid, of course he pictures himself as sick ripped or his dad as a badass
Oh, sorry I meant Bryan Singer, the one who keeps spurting X-Men films.
Simone got told Lois Lane was a pivotal character in his Supes film by a "close source", just to be revealed she was turned into a mommy, and that was her "pivotal" role.
She does look the part though
>she is very short.
>She is in the Wonder Woman movie, by the way.
Also, Room in Rome is relevant.
>But the thing with Gal is that we wanted to give her Faora in Man of Steel, but she was unavailable, so we just figured: Faora and Wonder Woman are just like tomato tomahto, right? What's good for one will surely be good for the other.
Stop hyperventilating you sod. Nobody called her perfect for the role. Said she "looked the part". As in put her in a tiara and panties and she looks like bloody wonder woman enough. Cunt.
Gaza must burn.
>‘Whoa, that girl is something else!’
But just picture all the salt we could have had
>The WW reveal starts
>Its strong muscular black chick
>Everyone keeps saying WW omg
>In the end she calls herself Nebula
The SJW threads would have been worth it.
Wonder Woman is raised within a culture that knows, is visited by, and to a degree worships the pantheon of Greek gods. I like the dichotemy of her being the one that stands between them and the world when their machinations put us at risk.
Ares becoming aware of the emergence of the 4th world, with events not unlike Death of the New Gods except it becomes Death of the Old Gods, and Apokolips and Darkseid are the ones doing the killing. It's not fully explained early on or referenced in detail because if it were it'd be like Green Lantern bombarding casuals with exposition before they were invested in the world. It's only referenced as a viable threat to him, and therefore self preservation becomes his motivation. As such, he comes to Earth fomenting discontent and war in an attempt to empower himself. This becomes what Diana seeks to stop after her origin is covered. This highlights how she fights to halt war, and demonstrates compassion to grow peace. This draws out Ares which leads to their conflict. Personally, I like BAzz having written him as her mentor. I think if that were included in a way that felt organic and not forced that it could add depth to their conflict later in the movie. Either way, whether if because she is forced to kill him, Darkseid shows up and kills him setting himself up for further movies, or both, at some point Ares explains what has been happening (not so much as to overwhelm people with detail, but just with an effective combination of compelling imagery and simple descriptive language), why he's done what he's done, and this becomes Diana's call to action to seek out others gifted like herself that can stand together to stop this incoming threat.
As for her being a positive feminist role model, I think all that'd take is an effective shot of a little girl looking up at a picture of Diana with awe like pic of the boy looking at Supes in a window. Also, I need a live action version of pic related scene at some point.
I loved people bitching about her in her costume, and revealing the hypocrisy of them, and personally, I think its a knock at conservative culture and tumblr culture alike, and it also shows how she doesn't overreact with violence as much as with love and seeking the truth.
>I loved people bitching about her in her costume, and revealing the hypocrisy of them
Not everybody is a hypocrite though. All this scene does is make it seem like she is right and anybody who disagrees with her is a lying hypocrite.
>All this scene does is make it seem like she is right and anybody who disagrees with her is a lying hypocrite.
That's your take away. Mine is that the loudest critics are often fueled by self-hatred caused by liking something in a way completely opposite to what their public statements suggest. I think it also covered the exploration of a part of the public not liking superheroes, and to a much lesser degree portraying that notion as silly.
Unfortunately, this would be set in the same world as MoS, so it wouldn't be as easily dismissable as silly.
>Mine is that the loudest critics are often fueled by self-hatred caused by liking something in a way completely opposite to what their public statements suggest
But not always. Many people just don't like some shit.
It's hilarious. Ya'll get so triggered when someone says "Women aren't taken seriously in the industry" and then imply that women only get cast because of how well they suck dick
Read it, its not that long, just look at the bullet points.
but a short version would be that Lara is a strong mother, Lois is intelligent and is more than Superman's floozy, Faora is a badass and is Zods right hand with no mention of her gender, and that women are shown as developed characters who happen to be women, rather than as love interests.
It sounds better when you read the whole thing.
Olga Kurylenko is as skinny as Gal Gadot.
Surely this is just building her up because there's a solo WW film coming? Odds are she was hired as a cheap way to try and bring in the Fast and Furious audience. Her ;ack of an Amazon physique is pretty much irrelevant because all the general audience know WW from is a long forgotten TV show. Her acting ability is also irrelevant because she's pretty and, despite what Warner's employees and shills would have us believe, the role might very well be paper thin. All she'll have to do is look sexy and most of the male audience is on her side. If she grimaces and pulls tough-gal faces then she gets the female audience on her side. The comic book reading audience is miniscule so Warners probably couldn't care less about them. We might not like it but we don't matter to them.
You people are so fucking stupid. If Phasma had been in nothing pre release and you just saw her in the movie no one would be saying any of this retarded dribble because non of this is reflected in the movie.
>i think Gina Carano was there.
Did you see her in the Deadpool trailer? I'm sad, time is a bitch.
She never looked the same after Cyborg
Despite what >>78760872 assumes, most of /tv/ was saying that they were pleasantly surprised by Finn and that he wound up being one of the better characters. Most of their hate was reserved for Rey. I couldn't even work up that much emotion, I just found her bland as hell.
Okay yeah, all of this is very true sadly enough. And most people will eat it up because they have no taste in cinema.
Honestly, it's not as if you need good acting to have successful movies anyway. The Transformers franchise is a testament to this fact in fact.
