Gal Gadot: Wonder Woman ‘can be bisexual, she loves people for their hearts’

wenn29650176

Here are some photos of Gal Gadot at last weekend’s premiere of Keeping Up with the Joneses. I just never got around to posting these, probably because I was underwhelmed by Gal’s Dolce & Gabbana two-tone metallic dress. It looks cheap, right? Right. Plus, she’s a beautiful woman but scraping her hair back that severely does nothing for her.

Obviously, people don’t really care about Gal’s current movie, but everyone wants to talk about Wonder Woman. And some people are wondering… is Wonder Woman bisexual? You know, since Themyscira doesn’t have any men and what do women do when they’re alone together for years/decades at a time?

Gal Gadot says that a widely disseminated theory about Wonder Woman’s sexuality won’t be addressed in her upcoming film because the origin story for the character “isn’t about that.”

“It’s not something we’ve explored,” Gadot tells Variety, when asked if the superhero is bisexual in Wonder Woman or not, a backstory popularized by a longtime writer for the comic book series, Greg Rucka. Rucka, according to Variety, feels that Wonder Woman would have had relationships with women because she lived on a fictional planet populated only by females.

Says Gadot, who has portrayed Wonder Woman onscreen before, “It never came to the table, but when you talk theoretically about all the women on Themyscira and how many years she was there, then what he said makes sense. In this movie she does not experience any bisexual relationships,” she explains. “But it’s not about that. She’s a woman who loves people for who they are. She can be bisexual. She loves people for their hearts.”

So… the canon of Wonder Woman indicates that she probably is bisexual, but the film features a pretty straight-forward heterosexual pairing, between Wonder Woman and Chris Pine’s character. That’s what I’m getting from what Gal says, although she’s open to interpretations of Diana’s bisexuality and she’s cool with whatever.

Maybe I was just using this post as an excuse to watch the Wonder Woman trailer again. Seriously, I do hope this is good.

    The guys I work with are obsessed with her, they find Gal extremely hot.

      I truly do not care what some bros at the office think.

      What do you think? I’d rather hear about that.

    Praying to the movie gods that this movie is awesome because that trailer is so so great!

    I think they’ve said she’s explicitly bisexual in the new comic books. The movie is looking for international dollars so if it’s there it will be beyond subtle (see also: Star Trek:Beyond); as in unless you knew to look for it you’d miss it.

    Sad truth: As long as there are hundreds of millions of dollars to be made in less-tolerant countries (and let’s face it, money to be made from less tolerant folks in our own backyard); there will not be a major LGBTQ star character in Marvel, DC, Star Wars, Frozen, etc. I wish people would stop getting their hopes up. The money is astronomical and that’s the studios’ true goal. By all means inclusive projects should be rewarded and viewed but perspective will save a lot of disappointment.

      @Mia, the writer, Greg Rucka, has stated she is queer. We have yet to see any queer relationships really play out on the page though I think everyone is hoping that that might be coming. Greg Rucka is a noted and passionate feminist and has long been against DC trying to pair Wonder Woman off with other male superheroes (his rants against this are EPIC) and I think he’s doing his best to try and restore the diversity to Wonder Woman that has been lacking for so long. Whether that makes it into the movies? You’re right. Anyone’s guess.

    Ok comic nerd here….here we go. Yes, Wonder Woman is queer. This has been well known in the comics community for years but has often been a point of contention because a contingent of the sexist male dominated comic book industry refuses to allow this to truly play out because it means relinquishing their claim on Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman was created by William Marston. He was in a poly relationship with his wife and another woman. The 3 of them lived together as couple and were very happy.

    Steve Trevor is important to Wonder Woman’s origin story and I’m glad he’s in the movie. Steve Trevor is left out of Wonder Woman’s story way too often. He’s important because he shows that it’s OK for a man’s strength to not come from the physical and for the woman to be the one with the physical power. This is not to say that Steve is not Diana’s equal because he is. I like Steve Trevor and if Diana has to hook up with a man…I like it to be him. There are those in the comics community that try to hook her up with both Batman and Superman. The pairing with Batman I don’t mind as much although she still gets overshadowed there. The pairing with Superman is an abomination as it goes completely against what Wonder Woman stands for. She’s supposed to be the physical alpha and ruins the point of both of their stories. The confirmation that Wonder Woman is queer is wonderful and important because it means that Diana has many more options now for love other than DC just trying to pair her up with random male superheroes which frankly has always been insulting as crap. I look forward to the films trying to explore her relationships with women in the future.

    As for Gal Gadot, honestly…I’m really mixed on her. I don’t like her political views at all. She’s a Zionist. I think she’s very pretty and I like her as Wonder Woman. I also rolled my eyes though seeing her in her underwear in the new trailer for that movie with Jon Hamm. At some point, she needs to do something as an actress that isn’t dependent on her standing there in a bikini (as she did in Fast and Furious) or in her underwear. She’s a literal supermodel, we get it. Do something else now, Gal. I’m not also not sure she can actually act. She was good in Batman v. Superman because she didn’t really do anything but pose and swing a sword. I’m not entirely sure she has other layers as an actress. I guess time will tell.

      Well she was in Triple 9 in a more serious role where she didn’t take her clothes off or was in a bikini.

    I love Wonder Woman and am still mad that Gadot got cast. Not even a litttle sorry.

    And that she doesn’t have a lady love. Give me some hot major film LESBIAN action please. I don’t want that shit dudes watch because they are scared of extra dicks flailing around. I would like a real portrayal of hot lady love.
    Gal can be included, but I’m not jazzed about that.

  5. CDA says:

    I think Gal does an awesome job at playing wonderwoman you saw it in Batman vs Super man Just amazing!😆

    @kathleen: what a very ignorant comment! How dare gal be a Zionist and simply just believe her homeland has the right to exist as a country!?! The horror.
