Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman

DC Comic’s holy triumvirate will kickstart the movie universe right in the shins and hopefully race on ahead to plans for a Justice League film. As for whether or not that will work is not the question right now. Instead, the attention will be on giving Wonder Woman the love thats needed in a mostly machismo universe. That’s been established with the recent reboot of Superman and in fitting in with the continuity that started with Christopher Nolan’s Batman.

But with Zack Snyder behind this product, the information that Israeli-born actress Gal Gadot will be playing a warrior-princess from Themyscira is exciting. She is best known for playing Gisele Harabo in the Fast and the Furious film series and this model won the title of Miss Israel in 2004. To have a foreign presence is fitting since this character is from the Mediterranean area. But little is known about this actress since her filmography is relatively on the short side. Her online bio states she served the Israeli Army for a time and this experience will no doubt serve her well when she starts training to really look the role.

But after this film, her presence in Hollywood will no doubt be on the rise.
