They covered a few other things about the actress scoring the role, but also touched on some of the fan concerns over her appearance. First asking her about how thin she was and pointing out that Wonder Woman was a large breasted character:
Hmm. 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.
Though I didn't see too many complaints about the thinness = cup size issue (though I'm sure there are some teary eyed fanboys out there), I had taken it to mean the problem was more about her lack of muscle mass. But they followed up, focusing on whether or not she would put on muscle and start eating some carbs.
It’s the physical preparations that I’m starting now. A very serious training regimen – Kung Fu, kickboxing, swords, jujutsu, Brazilian…1,000 and 1 things…I’ll gain body mass.
What I got from reading between the lines of that training regiment, is "shut the hell up about my body or I'll kick your ass." Gal, if you need any help gaining weight, that is one area I seem to be experienced in, especially this time of year. Have your people call my... well, me - I don't really have people.
