Actress Cast to Play Wonder Woman

Well this Batman vs Superman movie just keeps getting bigger and is starting to sound less and less like a sequel. It appears as though they have found an actress to play the powerful amazonian. Actress Gal Gadot has been cast as Wonder Woman in Batman vs. Superman, the follow up to Man of Steel. I think most of us probably know her as Gisele from the Fast and Furious movies. She can definitely play a tough woman role but so far we have only seen her in supporting roles. it will be interesting to see if she can pull off a powerful (literally) female lead.

I can’t say I’m super excited about this movie either way. I didn’t really love Man of Steel and I’m not a huge DC fan to begin with. However, this is an interesting turn of events because they are really swinging for the fences with this next movie. Apparently Ms. Gadot beat out both Olga Kurylenko and Elodie Yung for the role of Wonder Woman. However, that might not be a good thing.

I think if DC would have taken a similar approach to their heroes and introduced them to the audience the way Marvel did, and then teamed them up for a Justice League movie it would have been awesome. Instead it seems as though they are trying to make up for lost time and cram everything into one movie. Unfortunately there just isn’t enough time to develop such pivotal characters like Batman and Wonder Woman, as well as their relationship with Superman without giving them their own movies.

So the question remains Nerd Nation…What do you think about this choice and what are your thoughts overall on the up coming Superman sequel? Do you think Gal Godat will make a good Wonder Woman or do you think adding Batman and Wonder woman to this next movie is a bad idea? Leave us a comment below or on our Facebook page.
