Well, things just got interesting (and kinda weird) over in the Warner Bros./DC camp. Gal Gadot signs a three-film deal that will see her as Wonder Woman inBatman vs. Superman, Justice League, and a Wonder Woman standalone film.
According to Variety, Gadot recently went on popular Israeli show “Good Evening with Gai Pines” and revealed that her three-film deal pays out at $300,000 per film. That’s pretty smart of WB, as the Fast & Furious star has not been road tested as Wonder Woman and in the off-chance her performance eats it, WB can buy out her contract for fairly cheap.
I am still incredibly skeptical of Miss Gadot as Wonder Woman because I have a hard time believing she can pull this off…let’s be real here, darlings. Gadot doesn’t look like she can take a punch.
In MY eyes, Wonder Woman’s features are feminine yet masculine and she herself has a rough and tumble exterior that hides a fragile and emotional heart on the inside…just like any superhero/heroine worth their salt. Wonder Woman has to get just as well as she gives and THIS is where I have trouble believing Gal Gadot can achieve the level of Wonder Woman I’m expecting.
Know who CAN do all these things? Maggie Siff from “Sons Of Anarchy” (above). As Tara Knowles-Teller, she showed she can punch (and take a punch) like a man yet soothe an injured man or scared child with a gentle glance and even gentler touch, remaining tough on the outside while her world seemingly crumbles on the inside.
THIS is Wonder Woman to me…and let’s be real here – Siff straight up looks like Wonder Woman WITHOUT the courtesy of a workout. Pretty awesome, no?
Guess I’ll have to wait till May 6, 2016 for Batman vs. Superman to find out whether or not I’ll be waiting for Gadot in the next two films or continue my hardcore campaign for Maggie Siff as Wonder Woman.
Odds are my campaign will continue. Team Siff, yo.
