Warner Bros. has officially announced that Gal Gadot has landed ONE of the female leads in Zack Snyder's still untitled Batman vs. Superman themed sequel to Man Of Steel..and that role is indeed, Wonder Woman! We don't have a whole lot more on this for now, but here are some quotes from Snyder: “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 is relatively inexperienced, having appeared as Gisele in some of the Fast & Furious movies as well as Knight & Day. She certainly looks the part anyway, but will she be able to do this massive role justice? Sound off below.

I was just thinking she should play Wonder Woman after seeing the Kate Beckinsale fancast on another thread and then BAM!

This is great news!

MrCBM56 - 12/4/2013, 9:47 AM

I like her, but I honestly didn't see her as Wonder Woman... but then again that's a hard role to cast.
SpiderParker - 12/4/2013, 9:49 AM
Man Of Steel 2: Batman vs Superman - Rise of Justice League.
charlie2094 - 12/4/2013, 9:49 AM

Asterisk - 12/4/2013, 9:52 AM
HOLY SHIT! Now all we need is Lex, the official title...and the first look at the new Batsuit.
manymade1 - 12/4/2013, 9:52 AM
THABATMAN - 12/4/2013, 9:53 AM
She was in Fast and furious. 4,5, and 6
Mechagino - 12/4/2013, 9:54 AM
I wanted Jaimie Alexander. :(

But we'll see how she turns out as I'm one of a opened mind. :D
Maestro - 12/4/2013, 9:54 AM
I don't know who she is. But she looks like just another average actress.
ALegendaryPanda - 12/4/2013, 9:54 AM
LEX LUTHOR SHOULD BE NEXT!! Holy shit we're FINALLY getting Wonder Woman on the big screen! WOW
Maestro - 12/4/2013, 9:55 AM

Viltrumite - 12/4/2013, 9:56 AM
Whoa. Holy hell, finally.
ezio619 - 12/4/2013, 9:56 AM
though i hope this movie doesnt become too crowded!, hopefully snyder can balance it all, The Trinity on screen!!
the cast nobody expected ,haha!!
charlie2094 - 12/4/2013, 9:57 AM

I wanted Alexander too, thought she'd be perfect for the role, but I guess Gal Gadot impressed in the auditions and such so I'm perfectly fine with this! A role like Wonder Woman wouldn't just be given away, sure she'll be great!
ForeverPowerful - 12/4/2013, 9:57 AM
Really don't want to make a judgment call about this movie yet until I see who Lex is and what Affleck will look like.
GoILL - 12/4/2013, 9:59 AM

I like Gal but don't know about her as Wonder Woman since she is pretty thin.
Gyasiman - 12/4/2013, 9:59 AM
Wow. Cant say I'm not excited. I just really hope this movie does not become over cramped.Man of Steel was good, but i felt the sequel was going to be the movie everyone talked about. I don't know about that now, as Batman is going to be a huge character.

I will say though, that this will definitely lower the impact of the future Justice League movie. The main trilogy will have already have shared a screen, and it wont be as monumental.

Remember that feeling you felt in that very first Avengers teaser when Tony tapped on Thor's shoulder and said "you got a neat swing"? That's the feeling I wanted Justice League to bring, but it will kinda have already been spoiled. Still excited none the less, and can't wait for this movie.
SimonM7 - 12/4/2013, 9:59 AM
One has to assume she read for the role and made an impression, and that acting chops are in place. I've only seen her in Fast 5 and nobody is acting in that.

I just hope she has the time to build the physique she should have, so this isn't a ludicrous Eva Green in 300 2/stick figure situation.

Because she can basically reach around her own arm in this pic from Fast 5:

DefcoN - 12/4/2013, 10:00 AM
Emmmm, no.
PrinceOfCrime - 12/4/2013, 10:01 AM
hope not classic costume
DefcoN - 12/4/2013, 10:01 AM
So much for Jaimie Alexander.
Vegeta - 12/4/2013, 10:01 AM
After seeing what Snyder done with Faora in Man Of Steel, I have no doubt Wonder Woman is going to be exceptional in this movie.
SimonM7 - 12/4/2013, 10:01 AM
(I don't think WB cares about that, though, and just want this out the door as soon as they can - crammed with as many characters as possible.)
