There has been a lot of talk about the Batman vs. Superman movie, with plenty of rumour about which other DC characters we will see in the film. It was suggested that we could see Wonder Woman in the movie, which led to a number of names being linked to the role.
One such name that was said to be in talks for the role of Wonder Woman in the Batman vs. Superman film, is Fast and Furious actress Gal Gadot. Now, it has been confirmed that Gal has been cast as Wonder Woman, with Zack Snyder saying she is the ideal actress for the role.
Snyder explained, "Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favourite 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."
Gal Gadot will join up with Ben Affleck, who takes on the role of Bruce Wayne aka Batman, and Henry Cavill, who reprises his role as Clark Kent aka Superman. Batman vs. Superman will open on July 17, 2015.
