Gal Gadot Addresses Criticisms Over Wonder Woman Casting
A lot of fans all over the Internet were up in arms when it was announced that Batman vs. Superman has cast Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, with the main criticisms being based on the fact that Gadot’s physique is a bit leaner and less stocky than what people expect from a Wonder Woman.
A recent Israeli talk show was a little bit more blunt, with the host noting that Wonder Woman as portrayed in various media is a little bit heavy on the chest, and asking whether Gadot’s casting will change that.
“Breasts… anyone can buy for 9,000 shekels and everything is fine,” responded Gadot. “By the way, Wonder Woman is Amazonian, and historically accurate Amazonian women actually had only one breast. So, if I really go by the book, it’d be problematic.”
“It’s the physical preparations that I’m starting now,” continues the star. “A very serious training regime – Kung Fu, kickboxing, swords, jujutsu, Brazilian…1,001 things…I’ll gain body mass.”
