Lebanon Bans Wonder Woman Film
Wonder Woman Has Officially Been Banned in Lebanon

Quote:Wonder Woman is officially banned in theaters in Lebanon because star Gal Gadot is from Israel and previously served in the Israeli army. Gadot’s star in Hollywood has steadily been on the rise in Hollywood since her breakthrough role as Gisele in Fast & Furious in 2009, a character she reprised in three more installments of the blockbuster franchise. After she considered quitting the film business after years of supporting roles, Gadot’s fortunes turned when director Zack Snyder hired her to play the pivotal role of Diana Prince/Wonder Woman for 2016’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, which set the stage for her upcoming Wonder Woman solo movie, directed by Patty Jenkins, this week.

Now, just as movie fans worldwide are getting ready to see the biggest film of Gadot’s career, at least one country overseas is taking issue with the former Miss Israel’s Jewish heritage and service in the Israeli army.

As further confirmed by Deadline, Lebanon has officially banned the film, which was prompted by a movement by Lebanese group Campaign to Boycott Supporters of Israel-Lebanon. In an earlier report, Deadline explained that since Lebanon is officially at war with Israel, there is a Lebanese law that boycotts Israeli products and furthermore, prohibits citizens in Lebanon from traveling to Israel or having contact with Israelis. The ban was officially announced on Twitter Wednesday by Lebanese film chain Grand Cinemas.
And no comment.

Need to think of a witty signature.

I wasn't planning on seeing it in the theatre, but now I am just to help balance out their boycott Tongue
