Wonder Woman is set to make her first ever theatrical appearance in the upcoming movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Gal Gadot is going to play the iconic female superheroine in the film and so far people are mixed on how they feel about her being cast in the role. But my article will be giving you reasons why you should have nothing to worry about.
Zack Snyder's history with female characters
Zack Snyder has always been credited with having strong female characters in his movies. Watchmen, Man of Steel, and Sucker Punch all had excellent female characters, especially in Man of Steel. Faora was a straight up badass in Man of Steel, I mean, she totally owned Superman in that fight scene and had some badass dialogue.
And look what she did to these US soldiers. The speed, brutality, swiftness, and precision is astounding.
Silk Spectre was also a badass in Watchmen as well.
What I'm saying is that Wonder Woman is in good hands with the likes of Snyder, so far all of his female characters in his films have all had their due. He's going to do right by Wonder Woman.
Zack Snyder has said that Wonder Woman is the "gateway drug" of the Justice League and plays a super important part. This likely means that she is gonna play the Nick Fury role of the DCEU and assemble everybody together. That's actually a pretty good concept seeing as how Wonder Woman is an ambassador for peace and after the events of BvS and Man of Steel, she realizes Earth needs to be protected from any further future threats. Plus her knowledge and years of experience means she's more than qualified for putting a team together of god-like beings.
Gal Gadot's commitment
Gal Gadot, despite fans having mixed opinions on her casting, has put a lot of commitment into the role. She's posted on social media about her intense workout and muscle gain for the role. Gal has studied the role, researching the character's history. She looks the part, but can she act the part? I think she's a solid actress and will do the role justice. I mean WB picked her for a reason, right? Also, Zack Snyder's wife cried when Gal came in to audition for the part -that has to say something, right?
Zack Snyder's understanding of the characters
Zack Snyder is a major fan of superheroes and has a full-blown understanding about the source material. From what we've been hearing about, this incarnation of Wonder Woman sounds true to the character's history in the comics. Trust Snyder to utilize Wonder Woman well and do the character justice in the film. We've seen glimpses of the peaceful ambassador side of her and the fierce warrior in her, and Gal nails both parts.
