The sequel to Man of Steel is now a Superman, Batman AND Wonder Woman movie. Zack Snyder announced the news today that Israeli actress Gal Gadot would be playing the beloved female DC superhero in his next film.
Gadot, a former model turned movie star thanks to the rebooted Fast & Furious, may be the sole female star of the upcoming Justice League film as well. (Unless they decide to incorporate lesser knowns like Hawkgirl, Black Canary or Zatanna.)
Our new Diana Prince (WW’s alter ego, for those of you unfamiliar) was famously portrayed by Lynda Carter on TV from 1975 to 1979. Today’s role was thought to be handed to Megan Fox a handful of years ago, and Adrianne Palicki (Friday Night Lights) was more recently cast in a failed NBC pilot.Wonder Woman’s abilities include super fast and agile butt-kicking. And she has an invisible jet that I’m sure Snyder will turn into a super cloakey stealth plane to appeal to today’s audience.
