Variety learned yesterday that actress Gal Gadot has signed on to play Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder’s upcoming SUPERMAN VS BATMAN movie. Ms. Gadot’s film career includes stints in a few of the FAST AND FURIOUS movies and not much else.
The movie will also star Henry Cavill as Superman and Ben Affleck as Batman.
I haven’t really seen anything with Ms. Gadot in it, so I can’t really comment on her acting chops. I will say that I hope she puts on some muscle for this role since the few photos I’ve seen of her make it look like she’s never seen a grape that didn’t make her throw-up. My personal opinion is that Wonder Woman should look physically intimidating since she’s an Amazonian princess and all. With some training and protein Ms. Gadot might be able to bulk up to properly play the character, but only time will tell.
