  • Gal Gadot competed in the 2004 Miss Universe pageant and served in the Israeli army for two years before becoming an actress.

Emerging star Gal Gadot has been cast as Wonder Woman in the 2015 Man of Steel sequel. Finally, we are going to get the superhero movie we have been waiting for since 1970s Justice Friends cartoons. 

"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," said director Zack Snyder.

The 28 year-old Israeli-born actress is best known for her role as Gisele Harrabo in Fast & Furious movies. Gal competed in the 2004 Miss Universe pageant and served in the Israeli army for two years before becoming an actress. I think Gal will do the character justice and hold her own against Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck. The only thing missing from this equation is a strong antagonist. There's still time to make dreams come true and cast Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston as Lex Luthor.
