"Batman Vs. Superman" Casts The Role Of Wonder Woman...

Casting news for the upcoming Zack Snyder-directed Batman vs. Superman has consumed Hollywood media for months, and today's big news is no different. Wonder Woman will make her debut appearance on the big screen in the film, and as of this week, the role has officially been cast. 

Who's the lucky actress? 

Gal Gadot, an Israeli actress most recognized for her work on the Fast & Furious films, has been awarded the iconic role. 

“Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe,” said Snyder.  “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.” 

Batman vs. Superman will hit theaters in the summer of 2015. 

What do you think about the casting? Was there a different actress you had hoped would've lassoed the role?

I hope that Lynda Carter is the Amazon Queen 

c'est une jolie actrice mais je n'aurais pas vu cette artiste dans le rôle!J'aurais préférer voir cette sublime plante de Transformer Megane Fox !

I think Mila Kunis would have been perfect. She's exotic, the right hair and complection and she has proven she can kick ass while sexy.

I think she is a better choice than Meghan Fox. Wonder Woman isn't about being hot. Her image is that she is foreign, does things differently, is extremely patriotic, respects foreign countries(in comics she wears USA colors to show respect while she lives in the USA to make a difference on Earth), and she comes off as sort of sexist against men. That isn't a role I feel Meghan Fox can fill very convincingly. This girl is an amazing choice. I just question her hair. I would hope they can give her that full hair look that is quite signature to Wonder Woman.

Megan Fox would've been a MUCH better choice. Actually.... I thought megan already had the role. 

Perhaps her pregnancy put her out of the running

She's skinny, way too skinny and with very little muscle, to be playing the role. What will her superpower look like with that frail frame? It's almost like looking at the pre-Captain America...

I think Gal Gadot will be an awesome Wonder Woman! I am definitely looking forward to seeing what she can do with the character. However, if I had to pick another actress to wield the magic lasso, I would be looking at Jennifer Morrison from "Once Upon A Time." I know she is with ABC (and, by extension, Disney, who owns Marvel), but she has the talent, looks, and the statuesque physique to give the role of Wonder Woman justice. Just my two cents. 

After considering your choice..cuz I watch Once Upon..that may be spot on. WW is my favorite Super, then Storm. Yes, who they picked was kinda important, just make,it already. It's time has come. I think their choice will be ok. Heck, why doesn't SciFi chnl air those shelved tv episodes.

Great choice...its about time!!!
