She was first fast and furious. Now Israeli actress Gal Gadot is looking positively wondrous.

Warner Bros. Pictures confirmed Wednesday that Gadot, 28, has been cast to play Diana Prince, and her superhero alter ego Wonder Woman, in director Zack Snyder's upcoming Man of Steel follow-up. The as-yet-untitled movie, scheduled for release July 17, 2015, features Henry Cavill in his second stint as Superman (and Clark Kent) and Ben Affleck, who's making his movie debut as Bruce Wayne/Batman.

Gadot, a model and 2004 Miss Universe contestant from Israel, starred in three movies in the Fast & Furious franchise — including this year's Fast & Furious 6 — and also had supporting roles in Date Night and Knight & Day.

This marks Wonder Woman's biggest on-screen splash to date — Lynda Carter played the DC Comics superheroine on TV in the 1970s, and Adrianne Palicki starred as Diana in a Wonder Woman pilot that never made it to series.

"Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe," Snyder said. "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."

The Batman/Superman movie begins principal photography in the first quarter of 2014 and returns Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White and Diane Lane as Martha Kent.

I want to get a better idea of how Wonder Woman fits into this thing before reacting. That said, I know exactly jackshit about this actress so I'm not prepared to comment on how good a casting decision this is. In most cases, I could give two shits about Wonder Woman so I doubt I'll be too fussed about this lady.

But here it is all the same.

Yeah, can't throw up a comment at the moment. However, I will say it's about time Wonder Woman got some screen treatment. I suppose that means the plans for the TV show are pushed aside, unless they intend to give her a TV series instead of a film series.

With the reaction to Antje Traue's Faora, I have confidence Snyder will do big things with Wonder Woman. I just hope they put Gadot on a bulking diet/regimen, so she packs on some pounds of muscle.

She was not bad in the 'F&F' films, and she spent 2 years in the Israeli Army. So she should have SOME fighting prowess.

Just found this out after work. Like you other guys I can't really formulate an opinion right now beyond just her looks. I haven't even seen the 'Fast & Furious' films much less her appearance in some of them. My bigger concern is this film getting too crowded. Hey, wasn't Batman enough?! That could be a 3-hour film by itself & we wouldn't be bored the first minute of it! But start throwing in Wonder Woman, Flash, Doomsday & the kitchen sink & I just dunno..........Question

Gal Gadot Talks WONDER WOMAN Casting Reaction, Cup Size, Training And More

The Fast & Furious star has talked for the first time about her reaction to being cast as 'Wonder Woman' in Zack Snyder's Batman Vs. Superman, discussing the complaints that she's too skinny and not busty enough for the character as well as the training she'll undergo.
By Josh Wilding - 12/26/2013

Thanks to Batman-News, we have the first comments from Gal Gadot on the recent news that she will play Wonder Woman in 2015's Man of Steel follow-up, Batman Vs. Superman. Below is both the video of her talking about the role on Israeli TV show Good Evening with Gai Pines as well as a translation courtesy of the site. What do you guys think about what the actress says?

*VIDEO AT LINK*

Where were you when you heard the news that you’d been cast as Wonder Woman?

I was just on my way to shooting at LA. I landed at NY in a connection flight when my agent, Hadass Lichtenstein, called me. She says to me “Wonder Woman!” and I’m like “What??” – “The role is yours!…and it’s a secret and the news are not yet announced and you can’t tell anyone…”. I’m saying to her “Are you serious??”- and we both scream! Now it’s a plane from Israel to NY and I can’t make loud noise, and so I lean on a window, bending down to my legs, and just try to understand. Long story short – I was totally alone in NY, I got to a hotel at 12 pm, I needed to wake up in the morning for shootings. I remember laying in the darkness by myself, staring at the ceiling, and I was telling myself “It’s not real!”…it shouldn’t be like that, I’m supposed to be like… “where’s the champagne?”.



It’s been said that you’re too skinny for the part. Wonder Woman is large-breasted, is that going to change?

Hmm. I represent the Wonder Women of the new world. Breasts… anyone can buy for 9,000 shekels and everything is fine. By the way, Wonder Woman is amazonian, and historically accurate amazonian women actually had only one breast. So, if I’d really go “by the book”…it’d be problematic.



So you’re not going to gain a little weight and start eating carbs before filming begins?

It’s the physical preparations that I’m starting now. A very serious training regime – Kung Fu, kickboxing, swords, jujutsu, Brazilian…1,000 and 1 things…I’ll gain body mass.

I'd provide a link for this except I don't give a shit. Basically there was a rumor floating around like a turd in the bowl that said Wonder Woman in Man of Steel II is going to be Kryptonian. Because it's the Internet, people ran with it. "Hey, it's on some piece of shit click-bait page, it MUST be true." Thank God cooler heads prevailed and eventually someone contacted a production source who laughed it off and said of course Wonder Woman won't be Kryptonian.

Fandom breathed a collective sigh of relief and I don't understand why since nobody should've ever believed that crock of shit story. The majority of the people whining don't even read Wonder Woman comics and don't know their George Perez from their Bill Marston. But to hear the tone of the comments, you'd think every single last one of them was a diehard Wonder Woman purist.

Here's a nickel's worth of free advice. If that many people actually followed Wonder Woman, it would be the rule rather than the exception that she'd have a top selling comic book each month.

But for the sake of argument, let's say it IS true. So what? Sorry but nobody gives a fuck about Wonder Woman. She may have cachet as a female superhero icon but that's the beginning and the end of most peoples knowledge about her. She's a pillar of the DC universe mostly by default. She's one of the few who's been around nearly as long as Superman and that's the main reason the few fans she has give a crap about her. So if they made her Kryptonian in the next movie, I have a strong suspicion that 99% of people out there wouldn't even know the difference.

Maybe I'm wrong about all this. But I seriously doubt it.

Forget the comics, to the average person Wonder Woman is Lynda Carter! Man! Who'd have thought that such a short running TV series would've had such an impact? But the original Star Trek didn't last long either & look how that turned out. But in a sense Carter established her own 'Donnerverse' with her character if you get my drift? And woe to whoever tries to fill her shoes.

As for the comics I did read some growing up but I don't think I could ever call them my favorite. Wonder Woman is what my mother read when she was growing up! Obviously a character of the World War 2 generation but I suppose unique enough at the time to really gain popularity. Actually the character was still popular when I was reading too. But now? Don't have a clue. But also imho comics are no longer what they used to be either.

As for why she always has the same status as Superman & Batman, yeah, that's a good question.  Question

From the public's viewpoint, I have no idea. But I wonder if DC hasn't consistently positioned her at the forefront because of how subversive her Golden Age comics were. For their time, they were pretty fucking weird. And they're not much more normal even now. Had their been a Comics Code way back then, there's no way that Wonder Woman would've been allowed into publication. No chance in hell.

What do you mean exactly by how subversive her Golden Age comics were? Not to offend anyone here or elsewhere (lest we should offend anyone  Rolling Eyes ) but something about Wonder Woman's society smacked of lesbianism. Big time! But there was also the whole 'women's lib' angle too. But Batman was also criticized in times past for the relationship he had with his 'ward' Dick Grayson. Who really knows what angle those writers of yesteryear were coming from? Possible adult angles shrouded in 'comic booky'?

Golden Age Wonder Woman was filled to overflowing with S&M imagery. A lot of it isn't such a big deal these days... except for the crazy number of times people get tied up and stuff in those comics. People say that it happened every other page, and they're only half-kidding. I think someone tallied it up and discovered that something like three or four people were bound and tied in every story. Marston's angle was that he was a big S&M enthusiast, and it was something he shared with his wife and their girlfriend. You couldn't make this shit up.

As to Bruce and Dick thing, I've wondered about that myself but my impression is that the writers of the time didn't think much about the implications of a young boy being adopted by a bachelor, put into a pair of briefs and paraded around. Honestly, comics were about as reputable a trade back then as pornography. I think you could fairly say that most creators of that time (or at least the writers) believed the work absolute dreck and probably resented their lot in life. Is that true of the likes of Bill Finger, Gardner Fox, Otto Binder and other legends? Maybe. But maybe not. Binder and Fox sure used a lotta pseudonyms. Anyway, that was very much the consensus among most writers and editors in the biz back then. On that basis, I think they mostly just wanted a steady paycheck and probably weren't too concerned about the deeper themes and implications of their work.

Stan Lee is a damned good example of this, actually. Everybody knows "Stan Lee" isn't the guy's real name. Or at least not originally. He was a lot like his peers in that he never completely made peace with the fact that he wrote comic books. He tried to increase his respectability by calling them "comic mags" or whatever else. He has a famous anecdote of going to parties with "respectable" people and naturally they asked what he did for a living. So, to make a long story short, he would only reluctantly admit he was in comics. You had to drag it out of him. Writer... writer of fiction... writer of periodical fiction... writer of periodical fiction for children... writer of illustrated periodical fiction for children... *sigh* comic books. And that was when the conversation would end and the "respectable" people would find someone "normal" to talk to at the party.

And this was in the 1960's. How much worse must it have been for his predecessors?

^ Which sort of reinforces the argument that Gadot is good casting as far as appearances go.

Pardon me for the late posting, but a few things I like to get off my chest... One, Gal Gadot as Diana/Wonder Woman doesn't bother me much as long the actress still got what it takes to nail it and two, I don't see why the studio had to put the character in the film unless their secretly making a "Trinity" film or a JL film since it's rumored that they'll be more heroes added to the roaster. This is still a sequel to MOS right? RIGHT??!

LOL!  Sigh, good times....

Looks good, could've done with a bit more muscle maybe. Having said that, it's now my new screensaver!

So far it looks like they might as well shoot this film in black and white though

She does look hot which will certainly sell because, well, sex sells LOL. Very Happy 

But with that being said, why, oh WHY, does it seem like nearly ALL superhero costumes have to be the dull drab colors schemes that I wish I could blame solely on Nolan but actually that started with Bryan Singerman & the first X-Men film, correct? Yeah, no yellow spandex for his X-Men but rather black leather, no doubt his fetish. Oh, I know, one could argue BATMAN (1989) but I reject that argument because I LOVE that film! And it could be argued anyway that Batman, being a mere mortal, would need protective gear.

But somehow, somewhere, some precedent was set that seems to lean towards just making their superheroes drab, no doubt to avoid being associated with comic booky. So what happened to Wonder Woman's traditional costume anyway? Perhaps a little too PATRIOTIC for the PC crowd?

All the classic pieces are there. Eagle on her chest. Tiara. Lasso. Bracelets. Skirt.

Now, the colors are definitely different. I'll give you that.

Funnily enough it looks similar to the outfit Erica Durance wore in that Comic Con spoof episode of Smallville, IIRC. When Colors reminded me of Neal Bailey's hatred of attractive women in superhero costumes in Smallville it made me think of that outfit!

I might have to dig that episode out now.....any excuse! lol

Maybe my memory's playing tricks on me but I thought he was referring to Megan Gale's Wonder Woman we never saw in the aborted Justice League of America movie based on rumors of what her outfit would look like.

And yeah, it reminded me of Durance's outfit too.
