Is ‘Wonder Woman’ Getting Banned in Lebanon?
Geeks everywhere are fangirling because the highly anticipated DC film, Wonder Woman, is set to open in theaters across the Middle East. But of course, not everyone is happy to see Israeli actress Gal Gadot do her thing on the big screen.
The group Campaign to Boycott Supporters of Israel-Lebanon is protesting the film’s release because of its leading lady’s Israeli roots – a reflection of how the decades-old animosity between the two neighbors is also infused in the cultural scene.
A ban would require a recommendation from a six-member committee from the Ministry of Economy. According to The Telegraph, the process has not yet began.
