Variety has the scoop on the casting, which has been one of the most buzzed about aspects of the hugely anticipated DC Comics/Warner Bros. film.
“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 of the 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 will of course join Henry Cavill as Superman and Ben Affleck as Batman in the film, which is a sequel to Man of Steel but is also being design to broaden the DC movie universe.
Recently, word on the street had been that Gadot was in the running for the role along with G.I. Joe: Retaliation’s Elodie Yung and Quantum of Solace’s Olga Kurylenko and that the trio of actresses had each tested for the part of the Amazon princess.
Variety adds that “insiders believe the plan is to have not just Batman and Superman in the film but several members of the Justice League as well. It’s unclear which members, but Wonder Woman (Diana Prince) and the Flash are said to be locks to make an appearance in some fashion, whether that’s a significant role or a cameo.”
Additionally, the studio is now moving on to casting the unnamed villain of the film. Zero Dark Thirty and 300: Rise of the Empire’s Callan Mulvey is said to be under consideration.
