Hopefully the reviews continue to be positive for Wonder Woman because it truly is a fantastic film. Wonder Woman hits theaters on June 2, and Patty is hoping women of all ages see the flick - which is why she didn't rate it R.
The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that a security official from Lebanon says there's no formal request for a ban of the upcoming Wonder Woman movie. But who is Wonder Woman? Lebanon is technically at war with Israel, and the government does not allow the Lebanese to purchase or consume any Israeli products, communicate with or travel to Israel. In 2014, the actress wrote a Facebook post to stand in solidarity with her fellow citizens during Israel's brief war with Hamas, a US -designated terrorist organization, during the summer of 2014.
But Elie Fares, a Lebanese blogger, said the movie apparently has been green-lighted, since theaters are getting ready to show it.
Despite the controversy in Lebanon, Wonder Woman is set to open as scheduled on Thursday in cinemas across the UAE, Qatar and Kuwait. Prior to embarking on a career as an actor, Gadot won the Miss Israel competition and served for two years in the Israeli military.
In responding to a comment under its Facebook post, the Alamo suggested that more women-only screenings were on the way at some of its affiliates across the United States.
The Israeli actress appeared in reprisals of the Fast and Furious, none of them were banned in Lebanon. Of course, several other DC superhero legends have had their turn at movie greatness either in lead or supporting roles since then - most notably Batman - but it was Superman in the guise of Christopher Reeve that kicked it all off in 1978.
Meanwhile, the "Justice League" film coming this November will feature the present-day Wonder Woman, alongside Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and many more.
