Gal Gadot Scores Wonder Woman Role in “Batman vs. Superman”
Taking her career to the next level, Gal Gadot has been cast as Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder’s forthcoming “Man of Steel” sequel “Batman vs. Superman.”
The Israeli-born model/actress looks to be the perfect fit for the gig, given her action-packed roles in such films as “Fast Five” and “Fast and Furious 6.”
Gadot will have some high-powered stars to contend with on the set, as Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill have already been announced as Batman and Superman, respectively.
Snyder told press, “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."
