After months of fan speculation DC announces that yes, it’s true Wonder Woman / Diana Prince will make her big screen debut in Zack Snyder’s upcoming and as yet untitled Superman and Batman film. Israeli actress Gal Gadot of the “Fast & Furious” films has been confirmed for the coveted role, joining Henry Cavill as Superman / Clark Kent and Ben Affleck as Batman / Bruce Wayne.
“Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe,” said director Zack Snyder. “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.”
The film also reunites MAN OF STEEL’s Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, and Diane Lane as Martha Kent.
The film begins principal photography early next year and opens in theaters on July 17, 2015.
