1. There are people who are thrilled…

2. …people who are cautiously optimistic…

Listen DC/WB, I know we have different opinions about Superman, but please just give us a Wonder Woman my daughter will be proud of.

The first time Wonder Woman is in a movie, she'll be playing 3rd fiddle to Batman & Superman. Blehhh: http://t.co/OVN0z0uj42

4. …and people who think the haters need to calm down.

5. There are people who are excited about Gadot’s heritage.

Although kudos to WB/DC for casting a woman from the general Mediterranean part of the world as Wonder Woman.

6. And then there are people who wish Wonder Woman was getting her own movie first.

7. There are people concerned there are already too many characters stuffed into one movie…

8. …and people who think Warner Bros. should just get it over with and call the movie Justice League already.

@YahooMovies @GalGadot They should just call the film Justice League.

Love the Wonder Woman casting, would be psyched if they named it BATMAN VS SUPERMAN JUST KIDDING IT'S JUSTICE LEAGUE

— BrianLynch (@Brian Lynch)

What’s the over/under on when WB will announce the real title (Justice League?) for this Batman/Superman/Wonder Woman movie?

— russfischer (@Russ Fischer)

9. There are people wistful for what could have been…

Remember that rumor that was floating around that Beyoncé was gonna be Wonder Woman lol

— TonyDaGawd_ (@2 days till MCSWT)

I'm not complaining about the casting choice, but Gina Torres will always be my ideal Wonder Woman.

— peculiaritea (@ಌkarenಌ)

bah, still feel like the right move is a sandra bullock/kristin wiig wonder woman/batgirl buddy cop comedy http://t.co/sFQYQPftxn

— ryanmayeda (@Ryan Mayeda)

10. …and some people specifically wistful for Lynda Carter from the 1970s TV series Wonder Woman.

Nobody has ever been able to rival Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman. Ever. They keep casting too young.

— onehundredjobs (@Davison)

@adambvary @BuzzFeed there can be only one. And there will never be another Lynda Carter.

— kerrymuzzey (@Kerry Muzzey)

11. Mostly, though, there are people who are concerned Gadot is not in Wonder Woman shape.

wonder woman should be able to physically go toe to toe w superman and batman. im not seeing that in this casting choice. #comicbookguy

— owillis (@Oliver Willis)

Uhm, what? They're casting a skinny chick who looks like a high school junior as Wonder Woman? http://t.co/4O7RR2gFEk

— SkipTerrio (@Jack)

This makes no sense! She's supposed to be buff!! Gal Gadot to star as Wonder Woman in 'Batman Vs. Superman' http://t.co/F8KkdgjZxQ

— soup_up (@Supratik Mukherjee)

I hope she puts on some weight. Needs curves RT @TMZ: "Fast & Furious" star just cast as Wonder Woman (via @toofab) http://t.co/xpGt53GNBj

— trpcic (@shawna)

So Wonder Woman will be played by Gal Gadot. Not bad, with some training and bulking up, she MAY be alright. #wonderwoman

Nice to see Wonder Woman trending worldwide. Gal Gadot could be a pretty good Diana, just needs a few more muscles & a pair of contacts. ;)

That Wonderwoman casting is a disappointment. I always thought of wonder woman as being a bit more Kate Winslet gorgeous than stick insect.

— flickytwit (@flickytwit)

Israeli model Gal Gadot is cast as Wonder Woman. Hmm. She's beautiful but VERY slim, not overly 'Amazonian'. Will they make her gain muscle?

— ComicBookGrrl (@Blake Northcott)

Y las chichis? Y las curvas? RT @eonline: Meet Wonder Woman: http://t.co/yOz9xA3E2G. Gal Gadot has been cast in the Man of Steel sequel!
