It’s official–the Man of Steel sequel has Wonder Woman, and Gal Gadot is the go-to…um, gal! That puts an end to a lot of speculation, and has folks very happy to know that DC seems determined to make a Justice League of America movie to rival The Avengers. Variety broke the story, and here’s some deep thoughts from director Zack Snyder:
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.
Now let’s get excited about the character of Gal Gadot–the amazing Israeli beauty who showed up in Fast & Furious and Fast 5–but who guys probably remember best as Mark Wahlberg’s gal pal in Date Night who flirted with the idea of bringing in Tina Fey for a threesome. Well, maybe Steve Carell, too, but that’s less of a pleasant thought. Anyway, Gal looked ready for action in that movie, and we’re sure she’s going to kick ass as the Amazonian superheroine of our dreams.
Also, it look like The Flash will be in the Man of Steel sequel. That’s cool, huh? The character also shows up on Arrow tonight, as the television version. We were thinking… Wait, you really just want to see Gal Gadot pics, right? Yeah. We’ll go talk about all that other stuff somewhere else…
