Gal Gadot Responds Powerfully To ‘Wonder Woman’ Oscar Snub

And the winner for most gracious response to an Oscar snub is … Gal Gadot.

The “Wonder Woman” actress told “Entertainment Tonight” on Wednesday that she isn’t heroically ticked over the superhero hit being ignored in the Academy Award nominations, announced earlier this week.

“I was very moved and touched by the feedback of all the people that were disappointed that ‘Wonder Woman’ wasn’t nominated,” she said. “But we certainly never did the movie for that.”

Chances had leaned toward director Patty Jenkins perhaps getting a nod after the film’s critical and box office success. Or one of the technical categories.

But nope.

“I think that you can’t have it all,” Gadot added at the Revlon event in New York. “We’ve done this movie and it was received in such an amazing, wonderful way, and we want to stay humble and grateful, and we’re going to have another movie, so who knows? Maybe the next one!”

Perhaps an even better sequel can be the best revenge.

Watchers of Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger know that Tyrone Johnson is destined to become the “Cloak” half of that superhero duo, but he hasn’t quite figured out how to control the power that allows him to manipulate the realm of darkness inside him.

In this exclusive look at the fourth episode of Cloak & Dagger, Tyrone gets schooled on how the process of creating costumes can lead to greater self-understanding… and finally gets his hands on a familiar-looking black garment that might help him define his heroic identity.

“Call/Response” airs June 21.

“She’s back… #WW84”

Wonder Woman continues to be the lone bright spot in the flailing DC Extended Universe. With the sequel’s Nov. 2019 release barreling ever-closer, Gal Gadot took to social media on Saturday morning with a fresh look at her Wonder Woman 2 costume.

Or is it? There don’t appear to be any differences between the superhero duds Gadot wore in Wonder Woman and the outfit she’s wearing in this new photo share. See for yourself.

Jason Momoa is getting in shape for Justice League

Here, Jason Momoa is dry. Scroll down for the wet.

While it stands to reason that anyone playing a hero called Aquaman would have to look good wet, I’d like to file a complaint with whoever got Jason Momoa, who plays Aquaman, quite this wet for the cover of Entertainment Weekly.

Look, I know this “photographer” was just doing their “job” but what gave them the right to shoot an image of this absolutely enormous, bearded, heavily tattooed man with the body of a god and the hair of a WWE wrestler and put it on the cover of a magazine?

Look at how intensely he’s staring into the camera/the viewer’s immortal soul. Is it frightening? Yes. Am I ready to charter a boat in search of my buff aquatic king? Also yes!

Pause for a minute and think about what Jason Momoa must smell like in this picture. Think about it, manifest it, and breathe deeply through your nose. Congratulations.

But that’s not all! the Barnes and Noble version of Entertainment Weekly also included looks at Momoa’s Aquaman costars Nicole Kidman and Amber Heard, and smack between those two high-key attractive women is Momoa again, blonder this time, looking like he’s going to either kill someone or…yeah that’s just a “kill someone” look.

In the article, Aquaman executive producer Peter Safran had this to say about Momoa’s performance as a thicc amphibious man-hunk:

“Rarely has a superhero character been married to the real-life actor as much as Aquaman and Jason Momoa. “He’s authentically from two worlds, he’s this real physical specimen, he’s got this humor which he’s never been allowed to play before — in every regard he is Aquaman.”

A real physical specimen indeed.
