Lebanon wants to ban 'Wonder Woman' because of Gal Gadot's nationality
Jun 01, 2017, 01:14
The initial conflict had arisen surrounding the film due to Israeli actor Gal Gadot's leading role as the titular hero, the charge originally led by the Campaign to Boycott Supporters of Israel-Lebanon. Chief among them is Connie Nielsen, who plays Hippolyta, ruler of Themyscira and Queen of the Amazons.
Since Wonder Woman always conquers her foes, minor setbacks as this will most likelt not hurt the film.
Wonder Woman begins on Themyscira, an island of Amazon women where Diana is a princess and trained to become a great warrior against her mother's wishes. And watching her grow and still maintain that sense of objective and optimism, despite what she's seen - we haven't had a superhero like that before. Diana, as created in the comics by William Moulton Marston, joins Steve Trevor in trying to end World War II; however, in the film, she will be helping to put a stop to World War I.
Next, Wonder Woman is in the World War One trenches where she single-handedly takes on a legion of armed enemies. But even more than that, this also makes Wonder Woman the first film in the DCEU to be certified fresh, with its 96% rating sitting high above Man of Steel's 55%, Batman v Superman's 28%, and Suicide Squad's 25%. "We don't distinguish between a good Israeli and a bad Israeli", Masri said of the boycott campaign.
"What attracted me to this character is thatshe's so many different things", says the actress. She's pretty simple. She is like the parallel of Superman.
