I want to believe that I’m just misinterpreting what DC Women Kicking Ass is saying here and that they’re not suggesting that actors who don’t have a whole lot of experience/IMDB credit can’t be good, but that’s sure what it looks like. Which is very disappointing.
You don’t have to like the Wonder Woman casting. You don’t have to like Gal Gadot. You don’t have to like that they cast an unknown in such an iconic, incredible role. But “Short IMDB page = not a very good actress” is a terrible message to be sending out into the world. The film industry isn’t really a meritocracy, and that line of thinking can be really damaging to aspiring actors who aren’t getting roles because they don’t fit a particular type — one that Gal Gadot does fit to a large degree, but one that not every incredibly talented person does.
Again, I’m willing to give DC Women Kicking Ass the benefit of the doubt, as I’m sure they’ll have a more thought-out response to the casting once the hubub dies down. But this worries me. It worries me a lot.
Edit: Ahahah NOPE.
Yeah, fuck it. This is absolute bullshit.
I am currently watching this play out in real time and quickly remembering why I unfollowed this person on tumblr about a year ago.
MORE LIKE DC WOMEN… KISS MY ASS
sorry i just… I hate dcwomenkicknass. a lot.
Okay, two things.
First, DCWKA? Get bent, you elitist assholes.
Second, casting unknowns as major superheroes is bad? I guess so. I mean, it’s not like Marvel cast complete unknowns as major superheroes *COUGH* Tom Hiddleston *COUGH* Chris Hemsworth *COUGH* Fuck you DCWKA *COUGH*
Sorry, I’m allergic to bullshit.
And to Gal Gadot? Congratulations and good luck!
LMFAO HENRY CAVILL WAS AN UNKNOWN BEFORE MAN OF STEEL
how dare you. He was not unknown. He was in my heart years before that ugh just cause your american ass didnt know him. Gil u ignant.
So I found this awesome recipe at innatthecrossroads.com for the old bear’s hot spiced mulled wine and spent my evening making that. (I made the southron version, since i’m lannister inclined) it was hella good and very boozey. #gameofthrones
My bro just came prancing into my room with a Burger King crown. We don’t have Burger King in Belgium. He drove all the way to the Netherlands.

Actually giddy this turned up on my dash to reblog; I didn’t have a Tumblr the first time. XD
Always reblog, because even better than fabulous dames are fabulous anecdotes about fabulous dames from a fabulous actor who obviously appreciates them. XD
This just makes me happy on so many levels.
the Sensational She-Hulk series was ridiculous
she was Deadpooling before Deadpool Deadpooled.
I guess now I know why boys never approach me.
