For the first time, the Amazonian Princess, Diana of Themyscira, is appearing on the big screen. Man of Steel director Zack Snyder and writer David S. Goyer are bringing Wonder Woman to life alongside Superman and Batman in their up-coming Man of Steel sequel.
Warner Bros. announced today that the part will be portrayed by Israeli actress Gal Gadot who is best known as Giselle Harabo in the Fast and The Furious 5 and 6 movies.
"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," Snyder said.
