Patty Jenkins Shares A New Poster Ahead Of Wonder Woman's Release

Mumbai: It looks like "Wonder Woman" will not get a "wondrous" start in Lebanon.

Lebanon's Grand Cinemas movie theatre chain announced the ban on its Twitter feed.

"For this goal, the Ministry of Economy and Trade indicates that it proceeded to take the necessary actions to ban the showing of Wonder Woman movie where it appears the Israeli actress", the ministry said in a statement.

The superhero adventure movie is distributed in Nigeria by the leading distribution company in Africa, Blue Pictures.

A security official said violators of the ban would have to face legal consequences, but did not specify.

It's a frequently common problem in comic book movies that the villains feel underdeveloped compared to the heroes, and as generally great as Wonder Woman is, it's also no exception in this department. She continues to ride the wave in her own solo film, adding some much-needed confidence to the DCEU but more importantly doing justice (pun obviously intended) to the iconic female superhero. "She has no place in Lebanon". In a Facebook post, the Campaign to Boycott Supporters of Israel stated Gadot had "boasted about the army training her for Hollywood".

Since "Man of Steel" (which was far from perfect) set up a new schedule of films, Warner Bros. has struggled in terms of quality.

The 2006 fighting killed roughly 1,200 Lebanese, mostly civilians, and 160 Israelis, mainly troops fighting inside Lebanon. Gadot was able to portray innocence as she left Themyscira for the first time, with that innocence quickly changing to despair upon seeing the damage left behind by World War I and then into rage as she takes action against what she sees is wrong. "We don't distinguish between a good Israeli and a bad Israeli", Masri said of the boycott campaign.

On the challenge of making the story of woman universal: "That's the challenge - how to tell a story of a woman and make it universal, We are all used to having male protagonists in movies [directed by men]". "We have to respect that, but we have few questions".

However, many other films starring Gadot, including "Fast & Furious 6", "Furious 7", "Triple 9", and "Knight & Day", played in Lebanon and were box-office hits there.

"The end result will only ... affect the cinemas", Fahed said.
