Gal Gadot Set To Star As Wonder Woman In BATMAN VS SUPERMAN

It's been a busy day in movie news, particularly in the superhero movie department. Long after at least one failed television show with another barely seeing the light of day, fans and followers of DC Comics's efforts to bring forth the sequel to the 2013 blockbuster Man Of Steel have been clamoring over whether or not Wonder Woman would appear in the film, and if so, which actress would qualify to play her. Backing the widespread fan anticipation was the voice of Warner Entertainment CEO Kevin Tsujihara who told The Hollywood Reporter back in October "We need to get Wonder Woman on the big screen or TV."

Well, after narrowing their search down to three actresses last month, Warner Bros. latest announcement verified that such a character belongs on the big screen in the first place, with the news that actress Gal Gadot would be playing the iconic Amazonian superheroine for Zack Snyder's Batman vs. Superman. Warner Bros. Pictures stated the following:
Wonder Woman/Diana Prince will make her big screen debut in Zack Snyder's upcoming Superman Batman Film! 
Snyder stated, “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.”
Gadot's most memorable appearance as of late has been the previous three completed films of the Universal Pictures action franchise, Fast And Furious, which reportedly announced a tentative shut down of production for the seventh installation on Wednesday following actor Paul Walker's death four days earlier. Gadot will star with the cast in the upcoming release of Fast And Furious 6 on Blu-Ray and DVD on December 10, with proceeds going to the late actor's charitable organization, Reach Out Worldwide.

Currently titled Batman vs. Superman, Gadot will star with Henry Cavill reprising his role as Superman/Clark Kent, with Ben Affleck joining as Batman/Bruce Wayne. Also returning are actresses Amy Adams and Diane Lane, and actors Laurence Fishburne and Harry Lennix for a July 17, 2015 release.

  1. yes she is a beauty and yes we all liked her in the fast franchise, but no I'd like to see someone else. A woman with beauty but also the physique and the real martial arts skill set to play this character.
