I have to admit that I didn't honestly believe that the upcoming Batman vs Superman movie would actually include Wonder Woman, even when the rumours leaked recently, but hey I'm glad to be proven mistaken as news broke this week that Gal Gadot (best known for appearing in the Fast & Furious movie franchise) has been cast in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel sequel.
In a statement, Snyder stated: "Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favourite 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."
Now I'm personally fine with this choice but I know a lot of people who aren't and were praying for someone like MMA stunner Gina Carano (due to body size/muscles/believable fighting skills etc) and I'll admit that would have been dream casting, but although Gal is currently very skinny she's a fantastic choice and has quite a bit of time to bulk up and out on some muscle, if that's what is needed. To be honest if you know the history of Wonder Woman you'll know that her strength and powers have nothing to do with her muscles or her size and are almost solely based on magic and who and what she is, so who's to say she won't look amazing lifting a car above her head either way? :)
