Batman vs Superman has a Wonder Woman, and it's Gal Gadot


It's been confirmed that Fast and Furious star Gal Gadot will be strapping on the bullet-proof braces and golden tiara of Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder's Bats vs Supes film.

"What's that?" I hear your cry, "Wonder Woman is in there too?". Is Snyder throwing too many heroes into what could be an already convoluted and stodgy broth? Yeah, probably.

Look, I'm sure Gadot will be a great Wonder Woman. Hell, I'm psyched that we're getting to actually see a movie incarnation of an amazing superhero. But it seems to me that she could have quite easily had her own film. Does this seem like rushing to anyone else? Maybe she will have her own flick a few years down the line, but unless Snyder actually wakes up one day to find out that he can actually direct a bombastic superhero film then I don't have high hopes.

Please, Snyder, prove me wrong.

Update: According to the Variety article The Flash is also said to appear in the film. Is this just going to the Justice League? Could this be terrible?
