Actress Gal Gadot is not what you would call “heavily-built.” She fits more into the “thin-framed” category, so a lot of fans were outraged when director Zack Snider announced that she was going to play scrappy Wonder Woman in his Superman sequel that's been named “Batman vs. Superman.”

The Israeli actress slash fashion model shrugged all the negativity away and said that she was the perfect candidate for portraying the modern Amazon princess super hero.

She revealed in an interview that she had started an intense physical training regime that included “Kung Fu, kickboxing, swords, jiujitsu, Brazilian. A thousand and one things.”

The actress is now posting the results of her intense workouts and, to be honest, it doesn't make you quiver in fear. Gadot posted a photo on Facebook of her flexing her bicep and captioned it “There's nothing like a good workout in the morning. Love it! You?”

While Wonder Woman surely didn't have manly arms, neither did she have the wiry frame that Gadot possesses, which begs the question of how accurate Wonder Woman's portrayal is going to be in the film.

What's your opinion? Do you think Gadot has what it takes to do Wonder Woman justice? Or will her portrayal on screen take away from the film up to a point that it will make it unwatchable for fans?
