The upcoming Batman vs. Superman movie now has its Wonder Woman, with Fast & Furious’ Gal Gadot now cast as the Amazonian princess.
Deadline today broke the news that Gal Gadot will be Diana Prince, aka Wonder Woman, in the new Batman vs. Superman movie. This is the first time that the DC female super hero has been portrayed on the big screen.
Batman vs. Superman will be a follow-up to this year’s Man of Steel film and will not be part of the Christopher Nolan universe of Batman films. The casting of Batman became a huge talking point a couple of months ago, when news broke that Ben Affleck would be the new Caped Crusader.
This is what director Zack Snyder said about today’s casting.
“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.”
