Well, that’s one rumor we can finally put down in the books! While earlier this morning we reported on the rumor that Doomsday may appear, the confirmation has come in that Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) has landed the role of the Amazonian warrior.
This confirms a lot of earlier rumors, and Variety (who first reported the news) claims that they’ve heard other members of the Justice League are currently being cast to appear in the film, in some form or fashion. There’s no word on how big of a role Wonder Woman will play in the film. There’s every chance it could be a minor role or even a cameo. We know that WB is gearing up for a full on Justice League movie, so the casting is likely for multiple films that will incorporate Wonder Woman.
Here’s what Snyder said in a statement about the casting:
“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.”
I’m excited to see how they include WW in the story of the film and hope it doesn’t become too cluttered. Guess we’ll have to wait and see, but for now we at least know who will be Wonder Woman!
