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

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

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.

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.

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.

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?
