I think Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman outfit is perfectly fitting for ‘Batman v. Superman’. It’s muted down, mysterious and sexy. Perfect.

Gal Gadot is smoking hot as Wonder Woman… Still doesn’t fit the bill, but who cares — Nick Castle (@TheRealNickCast) July 27, 2014
Nothing’s ever perfect, and a few fans have tweeted that Gal might be too model-thin to play this butt-kicking character. However, even with the complaints that she could be more muscle-filled, people can’t deny she’s gonna be amazing on screen!
Who can say that Gal Gadot is “too skinny” to be Wonder Woman? I don’t think Linda Carter looked “amazonian” in terms of physique.

And now we know — fans are overwhelmingly psyched for Gal to play the role. Let us know which of these tweets YOU agree with the most!
First footage from ‘Batman v Superman’ Played During Comic Con
July 26 was hands-down the biggest day for Superman v Batman fans. On top of Gal’s first image as Wonder Woman being released at Comic Con in San Diego, the movie’s stars Ben Affleck, 41, and Henry Cavill, 31, surprised the Comic Con audience and premiered the VERY first look at the movie!
Variety described the footage played for the crowd of about 6500 fans. “Superman’s red eyes stared down Batman’s phosphorescent white ones in the first look video from Warner Bros. Batman, played by Ben Affleck, unveiled his newest night sky bat sign, and as the camera moved, Superman, played by Henry Cavill hovered in its way, frothing and red eyes ablaze,” they explain.
Wow. The movie’s not slated to be released until sometime in 2016 (we’ll let you know as soon as a date is released!), but we’re already psyched.
Do YOU think Gal looks amazing as Wonder Woman, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
