Gal Gadot of "Fast & The Furious" fame has been picked to be the new Wonder Woman in the "Batman Versus Superman" movie.
The Israeli born actress Godot is 28. Gal spent two years in the Israeli army and director Zack Snyder had this to say about choosing Gal to play the Amazon Heroine:
“Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe."
“Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character.”
Ben Affleck, the pressure is off of you now.-DocFB
Diagnosis: ....But will the fanboys think?
DC Comics released a teaser a week ago showing Superman & Wonder Woman hooking up on the cover of Justice League issue #12 and comic retailers are NOT happy!
Usually the teasers are released on Tuesday, the day before releases. I figured, like many, a week in advance would build up hype for the issue. I went to 2 comic book stores in Los Angeles on Monday and talked to the owners.
I asked how many people were calling ahead to reserve their copies and he said not too many. Another store said the hype was too early and people have forgotten about the hook-up already. They are worried that sales this week will not be as high as DC is projecting.
I asked if they heard about DC releasing another leak and they said there was not going to be another push for it. Even the variant cover, an alternate cover that is made in a more limited run, does not feature Superman & Wonder Woman kissing, but features Batman and Aquaman. Wouldn't it had more sense to have a variant of Clark Kent and Diana Prince kissing in the same manner?
DC relaunched all its titles which they called "The New 52" last year to much fan-fair, eliminating the marriage of Clark Kent and Lois Lane along with many other story-lines across the DC Universe. It was an attempt to make DC relevant again and at the same time, copy Marvel Comics success with what they did to the "Spider-Man" title a few years ago where his marriage to Mary Jane Watson never happened.
If the retailers concern for the early leak of the Superman/Wonder Woman will transpire to lower sales, DC Comics just lost a huge chance to remain relevant.-DocFB

Spider-Man, Spider-Man, does whatever...a musical can?
Conan O'Brien took on "Spider-Man" the musical and aside from a cool entrance from "Doc Ock" it was rather cheesy...and funny.
I haven't see anything from the musical although reviews have been bad but ticket sales are doing somewhat well.
This clip might be better than the musical, which is not intended to be funny, but gives me the chuckles.
Not sure why Wonder Woman was there but he....I mean SHE was! Check out the clip above and let me know what you think.-Dr.FB
