Batman vs. Superman Has Its Wonder Woman!

Warner Bros. has announced that actress/model Gal Gadot (Fast and Furious 6) has been cast as Wonder Woman in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman film.

Director Zack Snyder stated: "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."

This casting isn't a huge shock because the character has been rumored for the past couple of weeks to be making some sort of appearance in the film. Whether it be a short cameo or a full main character remains to be seen. My guess is a character that comes more into play later in film or next film , perhaps a solo film? ehhh

Gal does have the strong female lead qualities in her, but for Wonder Woman it isn't the worst casting but may not be the best cast. I will reserve my judgement until I see footage of her.

Batman vs Superman will have Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent facing off against Ben Affleck's Batman/Bruce Wayne. Expect the epiciness to hit screens on July 17, 2015.
