Mixed martial artist Ronda Rousey clearly does not approve of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.
The UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion recently questioned Gadot's fighting abilities, and said that she does not see what's so wonderful about the actress.
"They're making a Wonder Woman right now, aren't they? I should have been Wonder Woman. That girl couldn't curl a two-pound weight, what's so wonderful about that? I don't understand," Rousey said on the "Tommy Toe Hold Show", according to the Inquisitr.
Rousey has been making a name for herself in Hollywood through action movies "The Expendables 3" and "Fast & Furious 7." Interestingly, a number of fans, too, believe that Rousey would have been a better Wonder Woman that Gadot.
"Not that I don't like Gal Gadot, but I personally feel Ronda Rousey would've been a better Wonder Woman," tweeted a fan, while another added, "I wouldn't mind if Ronda Rousey was Wonder Woman, she kinda is already just without the super suit."
Director Zack Snyder's decision to cast Gadot as Wonder Woman in his upcoming superhero movie, "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice," has been criticised by a number of fans, who believe the "Fast & Furious" actress does not have what it takes to play a superhero.
Online petition forum Change.org, has a number of petitions seeking the removal of Gadot as Wonder Woman.
However, MMA fighter Gina Carano, who acted with Gadot in the "Fast & Furious" series defended the choice stating that although Gadot might not have the desired physical appearance, there's a number of other factors that goes into playing a strong female character.
"I worked with her on 'Fast & Furious 6,' and she's amazing. Such a great person with such a solidness in her character, so I'm very excited for her to do that," Carano told the Toronto Sun.
"I think people have an idea what they consider Wonder Woman. I definitely know (Gadot) has been training and there's so much more that goes into being a strong female character.
"I think people have their own idea, but I always like the underdog, I'm always rooting for the underdog. If the world says you can't do something, I couldn't care less because that's not how anybody should live their lives," she added.
Gadot has been working out and bulking up her frame to fit the bill as Wonder Woman, and prove to critics that she is the perfect choice for the role.
"It's the physical preparations that I'm starting now. A very serious training regimen – Kung Fu, kickboxing, swords, jujutsu, Brazilian…1,000 and 1 things…I'll gain body mass," she said last year, according to Batman-News.
