Not sure how you feel about Gal Gadot playing Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?

Even after this?

And the subsequent fan fiction...
And the subsequent fan fiction...

Well, you're not alone.

Ronda Rousey, star of The Expendables 3 (and absolutely terrifying MMA fighter), has taken a shot at Gadot's casting as Wonder Woman - and pretty much called her out in the process.

But with an intimidating smile, presumably.
But with an intimidating smile, presumably.

Speaking on the Tommy Toe Hold Show, Rousey was asked which movie would be better if she starred in it. Her answer?

"They're making a Wonder Woman right now, aren't they?"

To which host Tommy Toe Hold responded that Wonder Woman was indeed starring in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, prompting Rousey to...unload some stuff:

“Yeah, yeah, I should have been Wonder Woman, man. That girl couldn't curl a two-pound weight. What's so wonderful about that? I don't understand.”

All of which suggests that, should the two ever meet, it could very much be on.

The question then, is who would win in a fight between the two - and would that make them a deserving Wonder Woman?

Let's take a look at how the two would match up:

'Rowdy' Ronda Rousey, aka 'The Contender'


Gal 'Miss Israel' Gadot, aka 'The Champ'


170cm for Rousey, vs 178cm for Gadot.

The Reach Advantage? Gal Gadot.


61kg for Rousey, v 50kg (approx.) for Gadot.

The Strength Advantage? Ronda Rousey.

Past Experience:

Rousey is an Olympic Bronze Medallist in Judo, and the current, undefeated, UFC Women's Bantamweight champion.

Gadot served in the Israeli Defence Forces for two years, meaning she's trained in the use of Krav Maga and firearms.

The Experience Advantage? Hand to Hand, Ronda Rousey. Armed, Gal Gadot.


Rousey will soon appear in The Expendables 3, and is set to feature in Fast & Furious 7.

Gadot featured in Fast & Furious, Fast Five and Fast & Furious 6, as well as scoring roles in Date Night and Knight and Day.

The Career Advantage? Gal Gadot, if only for the Furious Franchise.

Invisible Plane X-Factor:

Rousey is often seen looking like this:

Gadot is often seen looking like this:

The X Factor Advantage? Ronda Rousey, because she will kick your ass, and still look good doing it.

All of which leaves it...a dead heat.

So it - and with it, the fate of [Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice](movie:711870) - comes down to you guys...

Two questions, then:


Who'd win in a fight (hand to hand, no guns) between Ronda Rousey and Gal Gadot?



Who should play Wonder Woman?

You decide!
