Lebanon Bans 'Wonder Woman' Because the Lead Actress Is Israeli

But with "Wonder Woman", D.C. has pulled off something even Marvel never could: A female-led superhero movie that's a credit to the genre.

Some well-known faces from our television screens also turned out for the event, including Baz Ashmawy, Lisa Cannon, Stephen Byrne, Darren Kennedy, Blathnaid Ni Chofaigh and many more. In an interview, Gadot told EW, "I try not to think about being a role model". We had more writers working with-everybody had knowledge because you can't do it with the Writers Guild without telling everybody what you're doing and everybody has to be OK-but we had more writers working at the same time than I've ever done.

Wonder Woman sprung to life in 1941 when William Moulton Marston created her for comic books. Asked about what made him chose to join the DCEU film with so many comicbook movies to choose from, the Star Trek actor makes a tiny little jab at Marvel while answering that director Patty Jenkin's take on Wonder Woman had actually drawn him to the film.

Not everyone agrees. A petition titled "Release Wonder Woman in Lebanon" was also circulating on Thursday.

When American pilot Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) crashes there, Diana learns about World War One and leaves the island to follow Steve to the front lines to vanquish the war god. "So a lot of the humor of the movie, or the circumstances, was pulled out by Patty". "It naturally availed itself of great humour, a great love story and all of the things that genre comes with".

Gal Gadot is an inspiration to us all, and we can't wait to see what she does next! Where many expected Wonder Woman to come in low around the $65 million mark, the industry's throwing out a new number.

"I am the bearer of the torch and now I'm passing it forward to Gal and to Patty". Gal Gadot is expected to have a prominent role in the Justice League movie due to Henry Cavill's Superman not going to appear in the whole film. During times of fear, darkness and pain, the shining beacon that is Wonder Woman reminds us to fight for truth, love unabashedly and protect even those who might not deserve it. Thank goodness we have her.

Pine and Gadot are fantastic as co-stars, matching one another step-for-step in the film's action sequences, romantic moments and comedic conversations.

And such is the case with her box office numbers and reviews.

It just goes to show: don't always believe those early reports, and mercifully, it seems that the DCEU isn't simply destined to be perennially underwhelming.

It's a bit more complicated than that but you get the gist.
