Justice League is officially banned in Lebanon

Justice League is banned in Lebanon because it features the Israeli actress Gal Gadot who is playing the role of Wonder Woman. Gal Gadot's name appears on the blacklist of the مكتب مقاطعة اسرائيل (The Office of the Boycott of Israel.) Last May, the Minister of Economy and Trade in Lebanon said that it had asked the country’s security agency to ban the screening of 

Wonder Woman.

The movie was shown in at least one cinema in Beirut for an advance premiere screening. However, movie theaters in Lebanon screened 

Batman V Superman

. Also, none of the 

Fast & Furious

 movies were banned, even though Gal Gadot has acted in them. She played the role of Gisele Yashar in 

Fast & Furious

 (2009), 

Fast Five 

(2011), and 

Fast & Furious 6 

(2013). Opinions on this issue vary a lot. Some people agree with the ban, while some others do not support the censorship in general. Those who want to watch the movie will eventually watch it online.
