Not everyone was enthused, though.

“Gal Gadot looks sweet, but frail. Not muscular and imposing, not like she can seriously kick some bad ass, the way Wonder Woman is normally depicted,” said Fred on Movie Pilot.

“Just the wrong choice — too bad, too late. But what about those heels, any good for fighting? C’mon. At least they can still get rid of that.”

“This is NOT Wonder Woman it’s a woman in a Kmart looking Xena costume being passed off to us as Wonder Woman. The actress looks nothing like Wonder Woman and the costume definately aint Wonder Woman. What a bad joke on the fans who have waited years to see the first movie version of this charactor,” siad a user on People magazine.

“Someone needs to call Lynda Carter to get this mess fixed. Obviously the Goonies working on the film can’t pull their heads out of their butts long enough to see the light of day. It seems they want to try to fix something that isn’t broke to the point nobody knows who she is. I will not be giving them my hard earned money for this garbage.”

Batman vs Superman is set to hit theaters in May 2016.
