Gal Gadot has been chosen to portray Cleopatra VII, a highly revered female leader from Ancient Egypt. Although there have been several cinematic and television adaptations of her story, concerns have arisen due to the glamorization or inaccurate portrayal of Cleopatra.
There has been some backlash towards Gadot’s selection for the role of Cleopatra as she doesn’t have a background of Egyptian descent. The movie’s release date and platform are not yet confirmed, but there is a chance that it could be released both in theaters and online streaming.
The upcoming movie starring Gadot does not have its full cast revealed yet, but it is possible that we may see famous personalities like Caesar or Antony. The director of the film is Kari Skogland, and Laeta Kalogridis is the scriptwriter.
