Gal Gadot confirmed as Wonder Woman for Bats vs. Supes


No more wondering about Wonder Woman

Rumors have swirled. Fans have shouted. People have said things on the Internet in all caps.Wonder Woman appearing in Batman vs. Superman has been a steady rumor since the film got announced and now it is 100 percent confirmed along with the news that Gal Gadot will be playing the heroine. 

Not sure who that is? You may recall her as Giselle from the Fast & Furious series and director Zack Snyder says, "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 did fine in the Fast & Furious films, but aside from having the body and the face I can't really tell you how good she'll be as Wonder Woman. It's definitely a major step up from a supporting role in an ensemble action franchise, especially if, like Snyder is hinting, there's going to be a Wonder Woman film down the line.

In other news, it seems the villain is closer to being cast with Callan Mulvey (Zero Dark Thirty, 300: Rise of an Empire) reportedly in the lead for tackling the role. No word on what that role is yet, though he could do Luther for sure.
