Earlier this week we heard from Man of Steel star Henry Cavill as he spoke about the addition of Ben Affleck (Argo) as The Dark Knight in 2015's hotly-anticipated sequel Batman vs. Superman, while today has brought us the news that Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) has been cast in the role of Wonder Woman. However, speaking about the various DC references in this year's Superman reboot, Cavill has revealed that there's another member of the Justice League who he's keen to see lining up alongside the Man of Steel as part of the DC Cinematic Universe at some stage.
"There's one obvious one which is now particularly obvious because of our next instalment, involving Batman. We see Wayne Enterprises on the satellite in space. We also see some references to LexCop - I actually have no further knowledge of this next story [for Batman vs. Superman], but there's a good chance that Lex »

Batman Vs. Superman or Justice League? With the news that Fast & Furious star Gal Gadot has been cast in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel follow-up – not to mention reports that The Flash is also confirmed to make an appearance – you would be forgiven for thinking that the movie is in fact more about DC’s version of The Avengers than just a simple team-up between their two biggest characters…
Either way, fans are ecstatic at the news that they will not only see Henry Cavill’s Superman fighting alongside Ben Affleck’s Batman, but also perhaps even the rest of the Justice League. If the team does come together in this movie, the door will be kicked wide open for a feature with them all working together, but right now the biggest news is undoubtedly the fact that Wonder Woman is finally going to get the big screen treatment she deserves. »

Well, the rumours were true... the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight are set to be joined by the Amazon Princess in Warner Bros.' upcoming superhero team-up Batman vs. Superman, with up-and-coming actress Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious, Date Night) securing the role of Wonder Woman in what will be the character's first big screen appearance.
"Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe," says director Zack Snyder in an official statement. "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."

This is a breaking news bulletin. We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming to bring you the following news. What seems too good to be true is finally happening, ladies and gentlemen. The Flash has been confirmed to appear alongside Wonder Woman (played by Gal Gadot) in the upcoming Batman Vs. Superman film, the sequel to this years reboot of the Superman franchise Man Of Steel. To reiterate however, we do not know to what capacity we will see both characters in the film, which is to say they may introduce them as these superpowered individuals, or have brief cameos readying for future instalments.
In the short span since the announcement, many have wondered just who will be playing The Flash and if Glee actor Grant Gustin will be expanding his role from The Flash in the popularised Arrow (featuring Green Arrow, another DC/Justice League member) onto the silver screen. »

1. Wonder Woman is a larger-than-life icon, a character who has existed for more than 70 years. She will probably still be important when everyone breathing now is dead. But for the last decade, she has existed most prominently as a casting rumor. They tried making a movie out of her, or several movies, or a Justice League movie that would’ve produced a Wonder Woman spin-off — a process that engulfed geek demigod Joss Whedon in a mid-’00s Dark Period so painful he has (maybe accidentally, maybe not) devoted years of his life to DC’s comic-studio archnemesis. They tried making »

There's been some speculation as to whether Wonder Woman would appear in the forthcoming Batman Vs Superman, but it's now confirmed: Israeli actress Gal Gadot has officially been cast as the superheroine, who'll appear alongside Henry Cavill's Superman and Ben Affleck's Batman in the forthcoming Man Of Steel sequel.
Gadot's most recently appeared in the past three Fast & Furious films, with earlier roles including Date Night and Knight And Day. It's said that Gadot won the part over other actresses, who included Olga Kurylenko and Elodie Yung.

Zack Snyder’s upcoming Man of Steel sequel Batman vs. Superman might be introducing a brand new Bruce Wayne in Ben Affleck and setting him up against Henry Cavill’s Superman, but with the main cast sorted out interest soon moved on to the supporting players.
Of these the most prominent is Wonder Woman, who may not have been in her own big-screen adventure yet but could be launched as part of Warner Bros. cinematic DC universe in preparation for a standalone film. Multiple actresses have auditioned for the role, and it seems like everyone has their ideal fan casting.

I’m glad Gal Gadot looks good in primary colors, because she’s about to wearing a lot of them — and only them. HollywoodLife.com‘s sister site Deadline reports the Israeli beauty, whose credits include Fast & Furious, has been tapped to play Princess Diana of Themyscira (aka Wonder Woman) in the upcoming sequel to 2013′s Man of Steel.
Gal’s appearance in the Man of Steel sequel marks Wonder Woman’s first major appearance on the big screen. Despite the popularity of Lynda Carter‘s 1970s TV series about the Amazonian warrior princess, she never made the leap — or, rather, the spin — to theaters.

While we knew DC Comics' two biggest icons would be coming together in Superman vs. Batman, Warner Bros. have announced that DC's superhero trinity would be completed with the addition of Wonder Woman (or at least her alter ego, Diana Prince). Joining Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck, Fast and Furious's Gal Gadot will be donning the bullet deflecting bracelets to play the Maid of Might. In a statement, director Zack Snyder had this to say about the casting: "Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe.

Warner Bros. is making moves on Batman vs. Superman. The studio just announced that Fast & Furious star Gal Gadot will be playing Wonder Woman opposite Ben Affleck’s Batman and Henry Cavill’s Superman in the film, and now it appears they have their sights set on casting the pic’s villain. Though the working title would lead us to believe that Batman and Superman’s relationship will at one point be contentious, the film will also have a proper villain. Now that Wonder Woman is set, director Zack Snyder can focus on casting that role, and one of the contenders is reportedly Callan Mulvey. Hit the jump for more, including which Justice League members will be making cameos in the film. Embedded in their story about the Wonder Woman casting, Variety reports that Callan Mulvey is “someone Warner Bros. is eyeing” to play the antagonist in Batman vs. Superman. »

Gal Gadot, former soldier, former Miss Israel, and a recent featured player in the Fast and Furious franchise, has been cast as Wonder Woman in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman movie, according to Variety. It's not yet known if the role will be significant to the plot or a cameo / set-up for a future stand-alone or Justice League team-up movie. Zack Snyder is directing the sequel to Man of Steel, with Henry Cavill returning as Superman and Ben Affleck joining the fight as Batman. I expect we'll hear more before the movie is released on July 17, 2015. Gadot played a former Mossad agent in Fast 5, returning in the same role as she became a more integral member of the team in Furious...

Warner Bros. and Director Zack Snyder have cast Fast and Furious actress Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in Batman Vs. Superman. She will join Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck in the highly anticipated superhero film. It will be interesting to see how her character will fit in with these characters and the story.
Gadot definitely has a Wonder Woman type look and feel to her. She's got the physique and that strong heroine jaw. I'm sure they will put her through a rigorous workout routine to prep her for the part, so she'll end up looking a lot stronger by the time they start shooting. Snyder had this to say to Deadline about Gadot landing the role,
