Ladies and gentlemen, we have our Wonder Woman. After months of speculation, and after rumour broke out a few weeks ago about actresses auditioning for the role, Warner Bros. has officially announced that Israeli actress Gal Gadot will be playing the Amazonian superheroine in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel (tentatively titled Batman Vs. Superman).
Gadot is perhaps best known for her role as Gisele in the Fast and Furious franchise, and her name was one of those originally rumored for the part, beating out actresses Olga Kurylenko (Oblivion) and Jaimie Alexander (Thor) to play the iconic role. Wonder Woman hasn’t been seen in live action since Lynda Carter played her in the 1975 TV series, and fans have been clamoring (read: begging) for the character to get her turn in the limelight for years.
Zack Snyder, who will once again be in the director’s chair, had this to »

After sending DC purists into a frenzy this summer by casting Ben Affleck as Batman, Zach Synder‘s Man of Steel sequel just made another major announcement. Israeli actress Gal Gadot will play Wonder Woman in the upcoming flick, which combines the worlds of Batman and Superman. Gadot is best known for her role as Gisele Harabo in the Fast and Furious films–most recently featured in May’s Fast & Furious 6. In addition to acting, she’s an accomplished model who was crowned Miss Israel back in 2004.
Doing his due diligence to avoid any similar Bat-lash, Synder defended his latest casting with a statement:
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. »

Yesterday it was confirmed that Wonder Woman is set to appear alongside the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight in 2015's eagerly-anticipated DC team-up Batman vs. Superman, with Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) securing the role of the Amazon Princess, while Variety also revealed that Callan Mulvey (Zero Dark Thirty, 300: Rise of an Empire) is being considered for the role of the villain.
Now, while most people expect to see Superman's arch-nemesis Lex Luthor as the main antagonist in Batman vs. Superman, Think McFly Think is reporting that the main bad guy will be none other than Metallo, the cyborg supervillain powered by Kryptonite. It should be noted that Think McFly Think hasn't proven to be the most reliable of sources in the past, however in the site's defense they were the first to break the news about the planned Gotham TV series so there is a chance »

Just as AWEme can attribute most of its success to Man at Arms, most of the traffic on Screen Junkies is driven by a single series, Honest Trailers.

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 »

He insisted that he didn't want to give away too much, but the idea for the new Batman is to redefine him in a way that doesn't compete with Bale and Christopher Nolan's Batman but still exists within the Batman canon.
Affleck explained that he didn't see himself in the role when they had asked him to be Batman but they had insisted that he would. »

As Batman Vs Superman starts to feel more and more like a Justice League movie, one or two more rumours have sprung up...
Yesterday, it was confirmed that Gal Gadot was being cast as Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder's upcoming Batman Vs Superman movie. Once upon a time, this was the project billed as the sequel to Man Of Steel. With the addition of Ben Affleck's Batman as well to the movie, Henry Cavill's Superman sounds like he's going to have quite a job to get a look in.
For it seems more and more as if the movie is becoming a Justice League film, or if not, a very obvious precursor to one. Obviously we've not read the script or anything, so it's just guesswork. But there are reportedly more DC characters set to appear yet. For instance, Variety is »

It’s not easy making a great movie, but it’s even harder making a great trailer. Like all advertising, movie trailers have evolved in the last few decades to become a genuine pop culture event. An effective trailer can do wonders for a film, especially for a film that doesn’t come with a built-in audience. There’s no faster way to create buzz than with a good trailer, and a well made trailer can turn a movie from a first-time director starring a bunch of then-unknowns into the most-buzzed about movie for weeks. Meanwhile a poor trailer can doom a movie right from the start. Every year there are but a few trailers that, independent of the film they’re promoting, capture everyone’s full attention. Here are the trailers of 2013 that were able to do that best.
Please note: This is Ricky’s list. Deepayan’s list will follow next week. »
7 Things You Don't Know About Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman
It's been speculated and rumored for months now. Will Wonder Woman make an appearance in the Man of Steel follow-up Batman Vs. Superman? Warner Bros. made it official this morning, as director Zack Snyder announced Fast & Furious star Gal Gadot as Princess Diana of Themyscira.
Here is what he had to say.
"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."
Much like the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman, this latest addition to the impending Superman sequel is causing quite a bit of controversy this morning, »
Wonder Woman, the premiere female superhero of all time, is finally making her big screen debut in Batman vs. Superman! And, after years of speculation on who could play this role that every actress wants to play, the role of Diana Prince/Ww goes to Gal Gadot. Gadot played Giselle in Fast & Furious (No. 5) and Fast and Furious 6. She also played a Russian villain in Date Night.
Many actresses have been mentioned for the role of the Amazon Princess through the years, including Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Alba. More recently, Oblivion's Olga Kurylenko, Thor's Jaimie Alexander and G.I. Joe: Retaliation's Elodie Yung were believed to be up for the part.
Batman vs. Superman is the sequel to Man of Steel, scheduled to hit theaters in 2015. Zack Snyder is again directing and Henry Cavill will play Clark Kent/Superman once again. Christian Bale, however, will reportedly not be »

We don't want the Man of Steel sequel to be too crowded, right? After all, it is first and foremost a follow-up to a solo Superman movie. But we are excited about Batman showing up, especially if it's Batman vs. Superman (whether that is the official title or just what everyone will continue to call it forever and ever). And now we can be even more excited about Wonder Woman finally appearing in a live-action theatrical release, with a confirmed report that former Miss Israel Gal Gadot will play the superheroine. But can we squeeze in one more? As long as this is going to be a buildup to something actually called Justice League, why not get a few introductions out of the way in what's already feeling like a transitional narrative? Let's consider a few of the...
