Gal Gadot Addresses Criticism of Wonder Woman Casting

Since the announcement of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel, Batman vs Superman, there have been heated debates all over the internet. First there is the issue of a third major hero in the film. Next, there is the hopeful possibility of possibly getting a Wonder Woman solo movie. Third and finally are the criticisms of Gal Gadot not fitting the Wonder Woman profile.

Now in what is being deemed as Gadot’s first interview on the role, she talks about her training, and her body type.


Following are the two major questions, and Gal’s responses, these have been translated from Hebrew:

It’s been said that you’re too skinny for the part. Wonder Woman is large-breasted, is that going to change?

Gadot: “Hmm. I represent the Wonder Woman of the new world. Breasts… anyone can buy for 9,000 shekels and everything is fine. By the way, Wonder Woman is amazonian, and historically accurate amazonian women actually had only one breast. So, if I’d really go “by the book”…it’d be problematic.”

Shortly after:

So you’re not going to gain a little weight and start eating carbs before filming begins?

Gadot: “It’s the physical preparations that I’m starting now. A very serious training regimen – Kung Fu, kickboxing, swords, jujutsu, Brazilian…1,000 and 1 things…I’ll gain body mass.”
