Sarah Michelle Gellar has thrown shade at the new Wonder Woman film.
The Cruel Intentions actress took to Twitter to show her disapproval at all the plaudits being thrown at the film for being a moment of significance in Hollywood for women.
In an acerbic tweet she reminded film fans that there already has been a female superhero on the big screen – Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
The actress – who played slayer Buffy Anne Summers on the WB/UPN series for seven seasons from 1997 until 2003 – posted a picture of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman with the sentence ‘I’ve never seen a woman this bad ass on screen before.’
Below it was a photo of a confused looking Sarah herself with the tag ‘huh’.
Of course the release of Wonder Woman comes as the topic of women in the workplace, gender equality and the pay gap is at the forefront of Hollywood.
And Gadot herself has spoken about the significance of a film about a female superhero at a time when gender equality has never been more meaningful.
‘Growing up, I had Superman and Batman to look up to,’ Gadot told Variety.
‘All the boys and all the girls, that’s what we had.’ she said reflecting on male superheroes.
Buffy fans agreed with Sarah…
Maybe Sarah and Gal could do a Buffy-Wonder Woman collab together?
