Warner Bros. has announced that Wonder Woman will be played by 28 year-old Israeli actress and model Gal Gadot in the currently untitled 2015 Superman-Batman live-action movie.
The sequel to this year's Man of Steel will feature Henry Cavill returning as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, and Diane Lane as Martha Kent. Ben Affleck joins the cast as Batman.
“Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe," Snyder said on 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 played Gisele Yashar in Fast and Furious, Fast Five, and Fast & Furious 6.
