A social media user wrote on X, “They said she wasn’t very beautiful, right there, and she was Greek and obviously s*xy, which “Zendaya” is not. You chose to make a movie about a woman living in an elite family to the last place of Egyptian power in the region, not to say Ramses I or Amenhotep III, the greatest leaders in the history of Egypt, or even Akhenaten, the most interesting. the leader he had – why? Why did you choose “strong women” that no one cares about?
Another said, “Didn’t Greek women participate in this study?” Cleopatra is Greek. “
One of them wrote, “Cleopatra was a pure Greek woman. “Choosing an ugly brown girl doesn’t seem right.”
Someone reprimanded, saying, “No, he is not Greek.” This is a scam and we don’t see it.
Well, it already received a large amount of negativity from the audience; When do you think the project will happen?
On the other hand, Denis is also negotiating to start another film with Gal Gadot, except this one with Zendaya.
