Another day, another rumor about the latest fanboy whipping boy, Batman Vs Superman, except this story is true: Wonder Woman is indeed in the movie.
Rumors were going around that a tall actress was being searched for a role in B V S, not that that means anything by itself, but indeed a tall actress was sought for Wonder Woman, and as Vulture tells us, Gal Gadot got the role.
Gadot is a veteran of the Fast and Furious movies, and she was also a competitor for Miss Universe. (In addition, Godot served in the army in Israel.) Other actresses up for the role included Olga Kurylenko (Oblivion) and Elodie Yung (G.I. Joe: Retaliation).
Director Zack Snyder confirmed to the Hollywood Reporter that Wonder Woman is in the movie, and he said, “Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makers her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character.”
And indeed, Warner Brothers has been trying tor revive Wonder Woman for years, and now they’ll get their wish as part of the B V S ensemble. (It also looks like Warners is trying to set up a Justice League movie from here.) So like it or not, ready or not, Batman Vs Superman is coming on July 17, 2015.
