Wonder Woman Is Cast For 'Superman Vs Batman Movie': 5 Things You Should Know
1 Of 5 Gal Gadot is Wonder Woman!
Speculations and rumors about whether Wonder Woman will appear in the upcoming Batman Vs. Superman movie have been floating around for months now, and finally Warner Bros. made it official this morning. Director Zack Snyder announced Fast & Furious star Gal Gadot will be cast as Princess Diana of Themyscira.
According to Snyder, "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 Gadot an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal Gadot in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character."
Similar to the reaction of the announcement that Ben Affleck was cast to play Batman, this unique choice has also been met with a lot of angry fans and negative comments. But Zack Snyder has made it clear that he's playing by his own rules. Unlike the complaints about Ben Affleck however, the primary complaints about Gal Gadot is that she's 'too skinny' to play Wonder Woman and that she is overcrowding what is supposed to be a true Man of Steel sequel, not a Justice League movie. Some have even speculated that there is not going to be a Batman Vs. Superman, but that instead this is a clever ruse that will later be revealed as a Justice League movie. That would definitely be interesting, but this new announcement holds promise and risk at the same time.
