Batman vs. Superman’s Wonder Woman Revealed

While people are too busy mulling over Ben Affleck’s turn at the cape and cowl, Snyder got busy with the casting of another major character from Batman vs. Superman: Wonder Woman (well, she might be just a cameo, but it’s hard not to take notice of things when you’ve got DC’s Trinity in the same live action movie).

According to the announcement, the princess of power will be played by actress Gal Gadot, who is most famous for her role in Fast Five and Fast & Furious 6. Non-movie buffs will probably recognize her better as the former title holder of Miss Israel. A lot of fans are pretty skeptical over the casting, citing Gadot’s lean physique as not being a good match to Diana’s toned, muscular stature. But Zack Snyder is confident that Gadot can do the role justice:

“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,” Snyder told Variety magazine.

Personally, we were hoping that they would cast Gina Carano, but we’re not about to bash on Gadot without seeing anything from her first. As for her build, it’s Hollywood so we doubt it’s going to be a problem. Actors buff up and slim down on cue these days, if the role requires it.
