Gal Gadot has been cast as Wonder Woman in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel that will feature Batman, but fans are not happy because according to them, she has ‘no boobs’ to play the role.
The Fast & Furious star was announced as Wonder Woman by the film director Zack Snyder on Wednesday in a statement that reads:
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.
But as soon as the news broke, fans (including men and women) took to the social media to complain that the 28-year old Israeli model’s physique is not suitable for the Wonder Woman role. Here are some of their tweets:

“No black hair. No curves. No muscles. Frail-looking. Looks nothing like Wonder Woman. SHE’S PERFECT.” -Zach Snyder http://t.co/vffN4I1H6g

Gal Gadot is insanely gorgeous (hi, girl crush alert), but is her physique right for Wonder Woman? #nerdtweets

However, not all the comments were negative, as Gadot’s powerful fanbase came to her defense, arguing that she has enough time to fatten up for the movie whose production will begin next year … and use blue contact lenses for the brown eyes.
Ben Affleck – who will play Batman in the movie – received similar criticism when it was announced earlier this year.
