From the very moment that DC and Warner Bros. announced that they were going to introduce the new Wonder Woman in the upcoming movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, there has been a lot of talk about the popular comic book character. There were a lot of suggestions about what the big screen version of Wonder Woman should look like, while almost everyone had an opinion on who should play the role.
There were many different fans lists for who should play Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with a lot of the same names appearing near the top of the lists. However, fans were in for quite a shock when it was announced that Gal Gadot had been cast as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, since she was never mentioned on any of the fans lists.
While a lot of the fans voiced their disappointment at the casting, insisting that Gal Gadot's body was not right for Wonder Woman's body, Gal got her head down and worked hard to get herself into the best physical shape she could, in order to give the best Wonder Woman performance that she was capable of. Now, the first look at Gal Gadot in the full Wonder Woman costume has been released and, while many people are still not impressed, it has certainly got us even more excited for the movie.
As well as seeing Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, we will also see Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, and Jason Momoa as Aquaman. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will open on April 29, 2016 in the UK and May 6, 2016 in the US.
