Gal Gadot To Play Cleopatra And Twitter Has Mixed Feelings

Deadline announced earlier today that Wonder Woman's Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot would be teaming up again to bring a new epic about Cleopatra to life. While the news has been better-received than Gadot's "Imagine" debacle from the early days of quarantine, not everyone's happy about the choice. Gadot's an Israeli with very European heritage, and it seems that many Twitter users feel that casting does a Scarlett Johansson to an Egyptian queen. As some people are crying whitewashing, many have pointed out that by most credible accounts, the fierce ruler was actually of Greek heritage - though her mother's roots have been heavily debated. As with most Hollywood casting controversies, it seems that everyone has a very important opinion on the matter. You can enjoy (or scoff) at some of them below.

People Are Trolling Twitter With Ridiculous Images Of What Cleopatra Looked Like

We love a good copypasta, and Twitter seriously delivered this week with this history-related meme. The text in question reads "Scientists at Harvard University have created this 3D Model depicting what ancient Egyptian queen Cleopatra may have looked like," and Twitter users have been pairing it with funny 3D images and pics of celebrities. It's a great joke. So great that many people don't realize that it's tongue and cheek, and actually protest the images. We love gullible know-it-alls. They add so much extra humor to memes like this.
