Holy casting news Batman!
The role of Wonder Woman has finally been cast for the upcoming (and as yet untitled) Batman vs Superman film. Warner Bros have just announced that 28 year-old Israeli actress Gal Gadot will take on the role.
The upcoming superhero flick will feature Ben Affleck as the caped crusader facing off against Henry Cavill, who reprises his role as Clark Kent’s epic alter ego. There is no word yet as to what Wonder Woman’s role will be in the film, although in the comics she becomes romantically involved with Batman.
Gadot is best known for her role in three of the Fast and Furious films, where she co-starred alongside the late Paul Walker. She also appeared with Tom Cruise in Knight and Day and had a supporting role in the Steve Carell/Tina Fey comedy Date Night.
Zack Snyder, who will be directing the eagerly-anticipated superhero movie, said of the casting choice: “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.”
