The story that's been circulating the past few weeks is that Israeli actress Gal Gadot has been chosen to be the next Wonder Woman.
My thoughts after seeing her again in Fast and Furious 6 - beautiful, but will need some serious body work to bulk her up to Wonder Woman proportions. Interesting choice.
Comic book nerds cried foul at the idea of Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, but the latest casting move for the upcoming Batman vs. Superman film could prove less controversial: Model/actress Gal Gadot has signed on to play Wonder Woman, according to Variety.
"Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe," says Zack Snyder, the film's director. "Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role." Gadot is best known for her appearances in three Fast & Furious films.
Though full casting details remain a mystery, Gadot will definitely appear alongside Affleck (as Batman) and Henry Cavill (who appeared as Superman in this year's blockbuster Man of Steel). It's also rumored that other members of the Justice League (including the Flash) will make cameo appearances, although the etxent of their roles are unknown.
