Batman Vs. Superman Finds Its Wonder Woman

For some time there has been internet speculation that the sequel to Man Of Steel, Batman Vs. Superman would begin to introduce other members of the DC universe in an attempt to gear up for an Avengers style mash-up in the form of The Justice League Of America.  Those plans seem to be afoot with official word coming that Fast & Furious star Gal Gadot has been cast as Wonder Woman.

Formerly Miss Israel, Gadot is no stranger to facing off against tough-guy stars having appeared opposite the likes of Vin Diesel, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and the tragically departed, Paul Walker.  She’ll bring that experience to star alongside Henry Cavill’s Superman and Ben Affleck’s Batman.  Director Zack Synder said that Gadot brings a certain magical quality to the screen and is looking forward to her bringing one of DC’s most popular characters to the first big screen incarnation of the Amazonian Princess.  It’s not clear if we’ll get to see her in her full Wonder Woman form or as her alter ego Diana Princess.  What you can be certain of is we won’t be seeing her invisible jet.  So what do you think?  Is Gadot the right girl for the job?  Source – Variety

Alex Moss’ obsession with film began the moment he witnessed the Alien burst forth from John Hurt’s stomach. It was perhaps ill-advised to witness this aged 6 but much like the beast within Hurt, he became infected by a parasite called ‘Movies’. Rarely away from his computer or a big screen, as he muses on Cinematic Deities, Alex is “more machine now than man. His mind is twisted and evil”. Email: alex.moss@filmjuice.com
