    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.

    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?
