Gal Gadot!

I know many of you probably said “who?” when you hear that name. And you’re right, she hasn’t been in very much. Her most recent appearance was Fast and the Furious 6 which I have to admit I haven’t seen. Director Zack Snyder issued the following statement about the casting decision:

“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.”

Of course this announcement was met with a variety of opinions – both positive and negative. But like Ben Affleck, I’m going to hold off on any actual criticism until I actually see the movie. I kind of like that she’s an unknown – bringing no previous history/preconceived notions of talent (or lack there of) with her.  Ultimately this is a huge opportunity for Gadot and I wish her the best. I want her to succeed in this part because I want them to prove that Wonder Woman is a character that needs to be on the big screen. Why tear her down before she’s even had a chance right?

What we want to know:

What do you think of this casting news? Have you seen Gadot in action before? And what roll do you think Wonder Woman will play in the next film?
