Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman

Hey Everyone, We are back with a new update! For this one, I want to talk a bit about the new Wonder Woman...Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman. When we think of live action versions of wonder woman, the first person we think of is Linda Cater's version. Linda's version is probably the most loved and iconic by most fans. But her version is best for another era. 

For this generation, We needed a new version of this prolific super heroine. We would be getting this in the new movie "Batman V Superman", that was released in 2016. This would be the first time we would see the DC's heroic trinity together on screen so they all had to have the look and mannerisms that would fit in this movie universe.  

Say what you will about the movie itself but I feel that one of the best things about that movie is the introduction of this new Wonder Woman. First off, Gal Gadot has done a great job portraying the heroine. She comes off strong, smart and sexy. She can kick your butt and look great doing it. We don't get too much backstory of this Wonder Woman other than she has been around for hundreds of years.  She was even around during World War I. We should be getting more of her backstory in her own movie next year. But what we do know is that she is an awesome
fighter and very intelligent as she even outsmarts Batman in a key part of the movie.

She easily holds her own against an insanely powerful foe and is able to work alongside her fellow heroes. Her movements are very fluid and when she attacks, you could feel the power behind her punches and kicks.

The look of this Wonder Woman is pretty different from earlier incarnations in that she is wearing more of what is considered armor and the colors of it is not very bright. She looks like a greek warrior but there are traces of her original comic book costume that I think fits very well for this updated modern version of this Wonder Woman.

So now that "Batman V Superman" story is over, where does this leave our Wonder Woman? Well, She has her own movie coming out in 2017 and then she returns after that for the 2-part "Justice League" movie. Hopefully, she gets a few movies because I believe this version...Gal Gadot's version of Wonder Woman has a lot of story potential and great action to tell.
