Okay, I admit, ashamedly I am one of those people. As much as I want to be all "Yay, go get 'em!" and support all my women of action/adventure, I am having a difficult time picturing her as an imposing Amazon warrior. Don't get me wrong, she's beautiful, but Wonder Woman goes WAAAAY beyond that. Seeing as she's one of my favorite DC characters, I look up to her and would love to embody some of her powerful characteristics. When I heard they were casting, there were a lot of women who came to mind: Adrianne Palicki, even though she was on the short-lived series, MYSELF (oh come on, you know I had to!) even though I'm still "unknown" to most fans, but honestly Gal Gadot was as shocker, and yes, for me, it came down to the fact that she doesn't come off as physically imposing and fierce.
I don't mean to come off sounding envious; if anything, her opportunity not being mine is even more fuel for me to hit the gym, practice my martial arts katas, and continue putting good food and positivity into my body. I am learning a lot by watching roles I'm perfect for getting cast, so that I can get an idea of what I'm up against, and what's expected of me. At least I know I am ready.
And yes, Gal, I'm routing for you, please blow my mind come 2016.
