Warner Bros. and Director Zack Snyder have cast Fast and Furious actress Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in Batman Vs. Superman. She will join Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck in the highly anticipated superhero film. It will be interesting to see how her character will fit in with these characters and the story.
Gadot definitely has a Wonder Woman type look and feel to her. She's got the physique and that strong heroine jaw. I'm sure they will put her through a rigorous workout routine to prep her for the part, so she'll end up looking a lot stronger by the time they start shooting. Snyder had this to say to Deadline about Gadot landing the role,
“Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe. Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character.”
This upcoming film has been feeling more like a Justice League movie than a Batman and Superman movie. It is obviously going to set the stage for a Justice League movie. I wonder how many other characters they plan on adding to the mix.
What do you think about Gadot taking on the role of Wonder Woman?
