    Taking a real big risk here but hoping some of you will be adults..

    She's gonna be part of the Zack Snyder franchise and she might get her own film though it's been tough getting that character off the ground due to the obvious gender issue. One of the biggest problems is that of how to make her look strong and beautiful without making her look like a cheap pole dancer just back from the porn boob clinic.

    Today I found this article:

    Here Tim Gonzales takes a stab it designing the costume and I think he gets it right on mockup #1. The leather battle skirt makes total sense and I think the pants are necessary to keep her from being cheapened; besides that a very recent version of WW did indeed wear pants. Also I appreciate not having that stupid gold eagle on the brassier.

    I think it could be groundbreaking if they do not hyper-sexualize it.

    She will be dressed like Sif in Thor.


    They won't hyper-sexualize her.

    The actress playing isn't particularly curvy or even all that attractive.

    All depends on how she's portrayed, and not in the physical manner.

    On a similar topic, though, I do not like that they got Jessie Eisenberg to play Luthor, who the hell is making these casting calls?

    Marl Zuckerberg is the new Lex Luther.

    The image of the "billionaire genius" has changed a bit in the last couple decades.

    Nerds run the world.

    The best super villains have doctorates. Is it because he's got the curly hair like Gene Hackman, and they're trying to recall the glory days of Superman movies?

    He's no Gene Hackman, that's for sure, In all honesty, I think some one with a little more "mad men" type swagger would make a much better luthor. I don't think Eisenberg could pull off Lex's special brand of crazy.

    People cried when Heath Ledger was cast as the Joker and he defined the character for a decade and won an Oscar.

    I'll give Eisenberg a chance.

    I didn't hate on Ledger, though, I knew he could do it just fine.

    I'm just not a fan of Eisenberg, he'll get his chance, it's not like i can change the casting decision, But I feel worse about this, than Affleck getting cast as the bat, because I know he can do it.
