Gal Gadot finally speaks up about Wonder Woman on the Isreali TV show “Good Evening with Gai Pines.” While the program airs in Hebrew, the good people at Batman-News offer a translation of the salient points. Since secrecy was important when she first got the part, she recalled having to keep all her excitement bottled up. “I needed to wake up in the morning for shootings. I remember laying in the darkness by myself, staring at the ceiling, and I was telling myself ‘It’s not real!’…it shouldn’t be like that, I’m supposed to be like … ‘where’s the champagne?'” she said. On the hotly contested difference between her body type and the usual image of Wonder Woman, the actress said, “I represent the Wonder Woman of the new world. Breasts… anyone can buy for 9,000 shekels and everything is fine. By the way, Wonder Woman is amazonian, and historically accurate amazonian women actually had only one breast. So, if I’d really go ‘by the book’… it’d be problematic.” She added that her training will include Kung-Fu, kickboxing, swords, and Brazilian jujutsu, so she definitely expects to bulk up a bit.

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2
Superhero Hype notes that the film’s viral Daily Bugle site posted a new story about the Enforcers. “Mob activity is the suspected cause of a spike in crime across all five boroughs. Not content with hijacking retails goods, sports betting, or drugs, more crime families have become involved in high-tech crimes such as the theft of microchips, processors, experimental metal alloys, and advanced weaponry,” writes Bugle “reporter” Frederick Foswell — a name that should be familiar to Spidey fans. The post continues, “Fancy Dan Brito said during his arraignment for the recent Brighton Beach shootout, “Everything has a price. Including the head of so-called superheroes.'” So, will we see Spider-man’s conflict with the mob in the opening moments of the film? Or will the viral site tell it’s own story in the months leading up to the film’s premiere?

G.I. JOE 3
While discussing his recent Justin Bieber film, director Jon M. Chu tells Coming Soon that the next “Joe” film film may shoot next year. “I’m excited to bring in new characters and fun things beyond Bruce and Dwayne that we’re working on and some great villains, but we’re forming those ideas now. I’m really excited – it’s going to be a whole ‘nother level,” he said. Asked if they’re devising a way for Channing Tatum to return as Duke, Chu replied, “It’s an extremely low possibility when you kill somebody like that, it’s pretty much it, but you never know with “G.I. Joe.” We did that with Storm Shadow, too.” Considering Tatum’s career since the first flick, I wonder if he’s even still available to match wits with Cobra Commander.
