Fans Petition to ‘Make Wonder Woman Bisexual’ in Movie Sequel

Thousands of fans are petitioning Warner Bros. to “make Wonder Woman bisexual” in the sequel to the film studio’s blockbuster 2017 summer hit. Israeli actress Gal Gadot, who plays “Wonder Woman” is very open to this idea.

Speculation has long swirled regarding the sexuality of Wonder Woman — also known as Diana Prince — and in 2016, the current writer of the “Wonder Woman” comic book series, Greg Rucka, confirmed that she is in fact “queer.”

While there was no mention of “Wonder Woman’s” queerness in the 2017 blockbuster, this may change in the sequel. Gianna Collier-Pitts, author of a petition, is campaigning for a bisexual Wonder Woman.

“All I ask is that Warner Bros. directly acknowledge Diana Prince for who she is, who she has always been (regardless of her current love interest), and what her character could potentially represent for millions of people.”

Israel’s Gal Gadot, who plays “Wonder Woman” in the Warner Bros. franchise, addressed the character’s sexuality in an interview with Variety, saying, “She’s a woman who loves people for who they are. She can be bisexual. She loves people for their hearts.”

The “Wonder Woman” sequel starring Gal Gadot is set to hit theaters in December 2019.
