It was announced yesterday that the The Fast & The Furious franchise star Gal Gadot will be Wonder Woman in the upcoming Superman VS Batman film.
This is what Zack Synder had to say on the news:
“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.”
It was rumored a while ago that Wonder Woman would at least be on the big screen in her own film. At the time of the Thor: A Dark World release date, Jamie Alexander was heavily linked for the role, as well as Gadot, Olya Kurylenko and Elodie Yung.
It is now rumoured that The Flash himself is a lock for the upcoming summer blockbuster according to Variety adding:
“Insiders believe the plan is to have not just Batman and Superman in the film but several members of the Justice League as well. It’s unclear which members, but Wonder Woman (Diana Prince) and the Flash are said to be locks to make an appearance in some fashion, whether that’s a significant role or a cameo.”
