When Ben Affleck was cast as Batman, the Internet pretty much imploded. Ben Affleck! Batman! How could they? It has died down since, but you still hear the rumbles. Well, Internet, we got the answer for you: they are movie studios. They CAN and they WILL.
When Gal Gadot was cast as Wonder Woman, the Internet got surprised. Because the Internet, as all-knowing as it pretends to be, had no idea who Gal Gadot was. Unless it was paying attention to the 10th-billed actress in Fast and Furious sequels. And it wasn't.
Well, we were paying attention to Gal Gadot, Internet. Because your new Wonder Woman is an Israeli Jew!
So let's hike up those red boots and fire up that invisible plane! The Internet — the world — better be ready for you, Gal Gadot!
And then, if this new movie is a success, who knows? Perhaps a Wonder Woman franchise for a Jewish leading lady?
As long as they keep Ben Affleck away from it...
