Today it was announced that Gal Gadot has been officially cast as Wonder Woman for the sequel to “Man of Steel”.
Fans seems to be reacting both positively and negatively to this news which comes not too long after the controversial decision to cast Ben Affleck as Batman.
In an interview, Snyder said:
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.
That being said, this really is a make or break performance that could lead to much more for Wonder Woman as a character.
We have already been through the ringer when it came to the Wonder Woman TV series which was canceled before it even aired.
Gadot is known for her role of Gisele in the “Fast and Furious” films.
Do you think this is appropriate casting for one of the most popular female superheros in the world? Who would you rather see wield the Lasso of Truth?
