The news that Israeli actress and model Gal Gadot had been cast as Wonder Woman in the new Superman/Batman film was greeted with all manner of reactions on the internet.

1. There are people who are thrilled…
Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman is a fantastic choice. Seeing them side by side makes it apparent why she was chosen http://t.co/nrYYy34r2i
Yes! She will make a great Wonder Woman http://t.co/ciqDp7HMIj
2. …people who are cautiously optimistic…
Don’t have a ton of faith in Snyder’s ‘Batman Vs. Superman’, but Gal Gadot seems like a solid choice for Wonder Woman http://t.co/5SjsXOL9Ab
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.
3. …people who are generally not happy…
DC has FINALLY cast a Wonder Woman…but in our honest opinion, we think they blew it. :( http://t.co/ir1XRUXNli
I’m done, DC. DONE. Gal Gadot cast as Wonder Woman in Batman Vs. Superman http://t.co/dHoMQz6YCA

The first time Wonder Woman is in a movie, she’ll be playing 3rd fiddle to Batman & Superman. Blehhh: http://t.co/OVN0z0uj42
5. There are people who are excited about Gadot’s heritage.
Wonder Woman is Israeli! http://t.co/iWBEIZVNAd @tabletmag Gal Gadot cast in Batman vs. Superman movie
Well how about that: Princess Diana is Israeliâ€””Actress Gal Gadot Cast as Wonder Woman in “Man of Steel” Sequel” http://t.co/BACd9LK1Pk
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
Whatâ€™s the over/under on when WB will announce the real title (Justice League?) for this Batman/Superman/Wonder Woman movie?
9. There are people wistful for what could have been…
2 days till MCSWT
Remember that rumor that was floating around that BeyoncÃ© was gonna be Wonder Woman lol
I’m not complaining about the casting choice, but Gina Torres will always be my ideal Wonder Woman.
bah, still feel like the right move is a sandra bullock/kristin wiig wonder woman/batgirl buddy cop comedy http://t.co/sFQYQPftxn
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.
@adambvary @BuzzFeed there can be only one. And there will never be another Lynda Carter.
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
Uhm, what? They’re casting a skinny chick who looks like a high school junior as Wonder Woman? http://t.co/4O7RR2gFEk
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
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
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. ;)
gal gadot is pretty and im glad wonder woman is going to be in a movie but i Ê·áµƒË¢ áµá¶¦á¶°áµˆ áµ’á¶ Ê°áµ’áµ–á¶¦á¶°áµ Ë¢Ê°áµ‰ Ê·áµ’áµ˜á¶«áµˆ áµ‡áµ‰ áµáµ˜Ë¢á¶œáµ˜á¶«áµƒÊ³ áµƒá¶°áµˆ áµƒáµáµƒá¶»áµ’á¶°á¶¦áµƒá¶°
That Wonderwoman casting is a disappointment. I always thought of wonder woman as being a bit more Kate Winslet gorgeous than stick insect.
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?
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!
