Gal Gadot Intentionally Bombed The Miss Universe Competition
Easily the best part of Batman v. Superman (and the only decent female star of a DC movie who won't make you hate tattoos and electric guitars) has to be Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman. She's the Themysciran warrior who battles enemies such as Doomsday, Ares, and (shudder) James Cameron.

But before she was Wonder Woman (and right before she had to do her mandatory stint in the Israeli army), Gadot's parents enrolled the then-18-year-old in the Miss Israel competition. Gadot was resistant at first, but figured she'd go along with it for the story. However, against her expectations, Gadot won, which presented her with a whole new problem: She would then have to compete in the Miss Universe competition, which she under no circumstances wanted to do.
"For an 18-year-old, it looked like too much responsibility," she told Rolling Stone. And we agree; it takes a certain maturity to deal with elaborate gown changes, embarrassing dance routines, and perverted old fucks who like to spy on women undressing. So, like a true teenager, Gadot only saw one way out: by being a complete fuck-up. When it was time to dazzle the judges, she intentionally threw the competition by "pretending not to speak English" and "wearing the wrong clothes."

In the end, she didn't merely lose; she tanked so hard that her parents never dreamed of signing her up for anything ever again. "I victoriously lost," Gadot proudly exclaims. Yeah! That's the Wonder Woman spirit!
Jason Momoa Was Hawaii's "Model Of The Year"
For generations, people thought of Aquaman as some weirdo loser whose biggest heroic achievement was waterskiing on goddamn dolphins. But Jason Momoa's Aquaman is here to change that, making him look like the awesome version of Ariel's dad who used to hang out in undersea biker bars and was the last person to see Captain Highliner alive.
