Gal Gadot to star as Wonder Woman!
Wonder Woman is finally set to return in the biggest way imaginable. Gal Gadot, the Israeli model and actress who appeared as Gisele Harrabo in the Fast and Furious franchise, will star as the iconic Amazon in Batman Vs. Superman.
The 28 year-old competed in the 2004 Miss Universe pageant as Miss Israel before becoming a professional model/actress. What better qualifies her to play a superhero though, might be the two years she spent in the Israeli army.
Director Zack Snyder says “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.”
