What's a Nice Jewish Girl Like You Doing with a Magic Lasso? Gal Gadot Cast as Wonder Woman

Gal Gadot, Miss Israel 2004, and an actress best-known in the states for playing Gisele in the three most recent “Fast & Furious” movies, has been cast as Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder's upcoming “Batman vs. Superman” movie—the belated attempt by Warner Bros. and DC Comics to replicate the huge box-office success of “The Avengers” movie.

But better get those bullet-proof bracelets up, bubelah. It didn't take long before fanboys were taking potshots. These are simply comments on Can't imagine what it's like over at Twitter:

  • a skinny chick with not the hint of muscle tone... good choice
  • i prefer megan fox to be the wonder woman
  • was still hoping Gina Carano might get cast
  • an Amazon Princess shouldn't look like she's starving to death...
  • Crap choice ... and isn't that girl to [sic] skinny?

I believe “skinny” is code for something.

At least there was this response:

  • The problem is that Zack Snyder is still going to direct it

Agreed. Oy. 

Gal Gadot

Gal pal, Amazonian princess.
