So with everyone whining about Gal Gadot being cast as Wonder Woman, I decided to do some research andI went back to look at the original comments on this article, which announced that Chris Evans had been cast by Marvel to play Steve Rogers in Captain America: The First Avenger.
Here’s a smattering of the fan reaction at the time (all emphasis mine):
"I think he’ll do good but I hope he bulks up.”
“Evans just has to add on some more muscle within the next 2-3 months(very possible) and he’s got the physical part of the role covered.”
"Ehhh, not the worst choice in the world but I think they could’ve done better as well. I’m glad the rumor mill on this will come to an end but I’m concerned given his film history that he’s not the guy for Cap.”
"I like Chris Evans, I think he’s a good actor, but I didn’t even consider him as the Cap. It might just be because it’ll take me a while to adjust, but I honestly don’t think he’ll fit.”
"I have a strange feeling people are going to start saying it should have been Channing Tatum in the end.”
"I’m still going to see First Avenger, and hopefully Chris can pull of Steve Rogers, but to me he will always be Johnny Storm.”
”AWFUL CASTING and pure lazyness for recycling a marvel actor. I will not see this or the other 9 movies they got him in because Hollywood hates comic book fans and do not respect the characters they love. Wake me up in 2025 when they reboot the franchise again because this one sucked. MARK VALLEY FOR CAPTAIN AMERICA DANGIT!!!!”
"I honestly think many of the other choices would be better, Worthington, the guy from Cloverfield, The Petrelli Bros (even though that wasn’t true), I’m not saying Chris evans is a bad actor, but to Play the Legendary Captain America? I say poor casting on that part, from his career so far and even his look, I just don’t think he’s a good option at all.”
tl;dr - Fans hate everyone.
Batman vs. Superman ~ 2015.

So this is them then…
Clark, Diana and Bruce
Could this be our Justice League?
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…
