Gal Gadot Set to Play Wonder Woman in ‘Batman vs. Superman’
Actress Gal Gadot, previously known for her work in the Fast & Furious series, has been cast to play Wonder Woman and her alter ego Diana Prince and will be co-starring alongside Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne and Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent in the still untitled ‘Batman Vs. Superman' film set for 2015.
Director Zack Snyder commented:
"Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe. Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character…"

But I am reminded every year that so many of my sisters do not survive. How could we shorten this list of the dead? What kind of politics would that goal require?
Because most people on the list lack basic economic security, it must be socialist; because the list is primarily made up of women, it must be feminist; because most of those women are people of color, it must be anti-racist. Because so many of these transgender women of color are sex workers, it must adopt a nuanced approach to sex work that respects its economic and personal necessity without ignoring its dangers. And because so many of these sex workers are in countries like Brazil and Mexico, it must be internationalist. If this politics seems impossible, consider that the safety of transgender people is impossible in its absence.
Practicing radical politics requires us to work from the bottom up, to start from the intersection of multiple oppressions. In 1977, a group of black lesbian socialist feminists known as the Combahee River Collective wrote: “If Black women were free, it would mean that everyone else would have to be free since our freedom would necessitate the destruction of all the systems of oppression.” According to this same principle, transgender women of color need to be at the center of our politics and not consigned to its margins.
