Yesterday, the Internet was abuzz with the fact that Israeli supermodel Gal Gadot had been cast as Wonder Woman in the upcoming “Batman vs. Superman.”
But not all were enthusiastic. Apparently, fans are concerned that the former Miss Israel’s, ahem, assets aren’t up to scale.
Basically, her boobs aren’t big enough.
I wonder if Wonder Woman’s boobs are gonna be CGI #nodisrespecttoGalGadot#BatmanvsSuperman ampmdash; Matt✌ (@MattVenegas) December 5, 2013
But why not cast Kat Dennings as Wonder Woman… 'cause, you know, boobs! ampmdash; Antonio Bifulco (@BifulcoArt) December 5, 2013
Even Superman had some thoughts on the matter:

Thank goodness, the voice of reason made itself known:
If you've recently complained that Gal Gadot doesn't have big enough boobs to play Wonder Woman, feel free to punch yourself in the face. ampmdash; Cody Dolan (@CodyDolan34) December 5, 2013
Apparently, the main quality an actress needs to play Wonder Woman is big boobs. Really, internet? Sometimes you embarrass yourself. ampmdash; Bill Loehfelm (@BillLoehfelm) December 5, 2013
Go home, Internet. You’re drunk (and lewd).
