Pardon me for the late news, today has been more than hectic for me.
Casting news emerged earlier today regarding the currently untitled sequel Man Of Steel, featuring a rebooted Batman. Originally, there was a casting call for “a possible love interest for Bruce Wayne”. Then, rumors circulated around that this “love interest” was, in fact, the star-studded amazonian.
Now, it has been confirmed: Wonder Woman is in Man Of Steel 2, and she is being portrayed by israel model/actress Gal Gadot.
“Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe,” director Zack Snyder said on Gadot’s casting. “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.”
Gadot is most known for portraying Gisele Yashar in Fast and Furious, Fast Five and Fast and Furious Six. Besides her experience as a temptous and hot-blooded racer in those movies, Gadot also served two years in the Israeli Defense Forces as well as being a personal sports trainer.
I remember Gadot from the Fast movies. While I wasn’t a big fan of the movies themselves, I remember her character fondly and thought she was the more charismatic, more spirited character out of the group. With her experience, filmography and dashingly striking body, I think Gadot is a good choice for Wonder Woman, and am looking forward to her appearing on the big screen besides Henry Cavill and Batfleck.
Agree? Disagree? Should Wonder Woman even appear in Man Of Steel 2?
Comment below, let me know.
