It’s about freaking time. No offense to Scarlett Johansson, Gwyneth Paltrow, and especially Anne Hathaway — who would have been great in a standalone Catwoman film — but it’s been maddening to see the ladies always playing second-fiddle to the male leads in the bazillions of Marvel and DC films that have come out over the past decade or so. Not that »

While Gal Gadot is finally bringing Wonder Woman to the big screen in her upcoming appearance in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel sequel, the Amazonian princess has had a hell of a time making it to television.
