Long have we waited for a Wonder Woman movie or television show that didn't make us want to flay the very skin from our flesh. Now it looks like we just got one step closer. Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder have cast their Wonder Woman for the Batman Vs. Superman movie, and she's both Fast and Furious.
Variety is reporting that Gal Gadot will play Wonder Woman in the still untitled Batman vs. Superman movie starring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill (as Batman and Supermanm respectively). In an interview with the trade magazine, Synder commented that:
"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."
And if you've seen her in any of the Fast and Furious films, it's hard not to agree. Lady kicks ass. A lot of it. Here's a clip to prove it:
This news also further hints at the presence of the Justice League in the Batman Vs. Superman film. Does this mean that Gadot will forever play Diana Prince in future DC and WB flicks? We're leaning towards yes, as this studio is desperate to drink from the sweet, sweet comic continuity nectar that has flushed Disney and Marvel with cash.
Now all they need is a villain, which Variety hints could be played by Callan Mulvey... iiiinteresting.
