Some fans didn’t like the choice of casting Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Superman himself (Henry Cavill) feels she makes a “cool” Wonder Woman.
An Israeli news site, YNET, interviewed Henry Cavill while he was promoting The Man from U.N.C.L.E. The site brought up Gal Gadot since she is Israeli too.
YNET wanted to know how Gal Gadot was playing Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Cavill answered that she was “absolutely fantastic“. He also said she is a really cool (person) and that “she makes a really cool Wonder Woman” too.
Some people have changed their tune of Gadot after seeing her in costume during the latest trailer. A lot of people are now convinced Ben Affleck will be a good Batman too after he suffered some fan backlash when he was first cast as well.
The only cast member that people are still weary about is Jesse Eisenberg’s portrayal of Lex Luthor. Even in the recent trailer, people were still not convinced that he’s the right actor for the role.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice releases March 25th, 2016 so we cannot make a proper judgement until then. Still, it’s great to know that Cavill is happy with Gadot’s performance of Wonder Woman.
