Gal Gadot, aka Wonder Woman, has been cast as Cleopatra in an upcoming movie.
According to reports, the film was her idea.
Which Hollywood dumbass thought it would be a good idea to cast an Israeli actress as Cleopatra (a very bland looking one) instead of a stunning Arab actress like Nadine Njeim?

Patty Jenkins, who directed both Wonder Woman films is also on board with Cleopatra.
In a tweet Gal wrote, Cleopatra is a story I wanted to tell for a very long time. Can’t be more grateful about this.
I’m going to say this once and I’m not going to say it again, Cleopatra was Greek.
Yes, she was in Egyptian ruler but she was Greek with Persian and Syrian ancestry. The people who are reacting negatively that to this are uneducated and uninformed.
Gal Gadot deserves this role. pic.twitter.com/7h1oYu9ClX
