Warner Bros. has announced the actress who will play Wonder Woman/Diana Prince in director Zack Snyder's still-untitled 2015 Superman-Batman Man of Steel sequel that will see Henry Cavill return as Superman, joined by Ben Affleck as Batman, along with the returning Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, and Diane Lane as Martha Kent.
The role will be played by 28 year-old Israeli actress and model Gal Gadot.
Director Zack Snyder is quoted as saying:
“Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe," Snyder said on the casting. "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.”
Not much more is said about the movie, but Gal Gadot is an established actress coming off the success of Fast and the furious 6. Warner Bros. made a pretty good choice and we look forward to seeing her play such and iconic character.
