So it looks as though DC has finally cast Wonder Woman for their new film franchise. Fast and Furious 6’s Gal Gadot is taking up the mantle of the famed Amazon Warrior alongside Cavill and Affleck in the 2015 Batman Vs. Superman film.
Here are words from Zack Snyder, director of the upcoming film, via Variety:
“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.”
So how do you guys feel about the casting? It is awesome? Uninspired? Confusing? We are glad to see Wonder Woman finally making an appearance after various studios mavens bemoaned the difficulty of tackling Diana’s story, but it’s not her own movie.
