Gal Gadot's 'Wonder Woman' is Banned in Lebanon

Wonder Woman

The DC universe has struggled on the big screen with cartoon flops like The Green Lantern and long boring messes like Batman vs. Superman.

"I am Lebanese and I'm seeing adds for WW everywhere in Beirut". The average critical rating for Wonder Woman is actually 7.6 on the site.

The Ministry of Economy had said in a statement on Tuesday that it had asked the General Security directorate to prevent screenings of Wonder Woman due to Gadot's role in the film. Yeah, I think it will!

However, the Fast and the Furious franchise and Batman vs. Superman were not previously banned, both of which also co-starred Gadot. Chris Pine plays Steve Trevor, the charming spy who lures Diana to London, where she discovers her superpowers.

Banning actors or movies because of actors seems a little hypocritical if we're not going to go the whole way with it. People are still watching and loving Woody Allen films, the most recent one being the quirky timepiece Café Society. I wanted this movie to be the first great DCEU movie and I'm really happy to say that it is!

Reviews for "Wonder Woman" have been glowing, scoring a rare 97 percent positive rating on aggregator Rotten Tomatoes with critics praising its humor and positive spirit.

"She's not only super strong and confident and unapologetic, but she can be very vulnerable and confused and insecure", Gadot said. At last, Wonder Woman has given the franchise its first certifiable hit and more importantly, the film is now currently sitting as the highest-rated superhero movie ever on Rotten Tomatoes. Depending on what version of her origin story you read, Diana, princess of Themyscira, was molded from clay by her mother Hippolyta, and then given life by the goddess Aphrodite. Due to this, Pine was nearly always bundled up in his pilot uniform, while Gadot had to wear Diana's revealing battle gear. There are several scenes where his performance is just laugh out loud amusing.

It's my favorite scene in the movie and it's the most important scene in the movie.

Wonder Woman is slated to officially open in most global markets (including America) on June 2.
