Not too long ago, I posted a blog back in the tumblr world about Gal Gadot and her casting as Wonder Woman. I would argue that it’s probably one of the most controversial casting choices made in cinematic history. Even still, over a year after hearing about her casting, people on social media are arguing over whether she is right or wrong for the role. Especially after a new image of her comes out as Diana. And one did over the weekend.
There she is pictured below. What do you think?
I personally feel bad for all the scrutiny been giving around Gal, but I still would be dubbed as one of the “haters” of this upcoming film. I can’t stress enough, however, that it’s not personal. I think its still the general over all issue of Hollywood’s continuous neglect of “outside of the box” casting. They’re still of this mindset that, “Thin, beautiful women sell…bigger women won’t…” This backlash is just us, as a society saying, you’re wrong. We would watch bigger, curvier woman…if you would just cast them for once!
I’m curious to see what others think. Check out my blog below…Do you agree?
