She's beginning her physical preparations...
Actress Gal Gadot was recently interviewed by Israeli TV show Good Evening with Gai Pines, and she talked about her upcoming role as Wonder Woman in the Batman vs. Superman movie as well as her preparation for the role.
Per a translation from Batman-News.com, Gadot addressed criticisms on her having a physique that was too slender to play Wonder Woman: "I represent the Wonder Woman of the new world. Breasts…anyone can buy for 9,000 shekels and everything is fine. By the way, Wonder Woman is amazonian, and historically accurate amazonian women actually had only one breast. So, if I'd really go 'by the book'…it'd be problematic."
She added, "It's the physical preparations that I'm starting now. A very serious training regimen – Kung Fu, kickboxing, swords, jujutsu, Brazilian…1,000 and 1 things…I'll gain body mass."
