The new “Batman vs. Superman” movie has added Diana Prince to their cast of characters. Better known as Wonder Woman, the part will be played by 28-year-old actress/model, Gal Gadot. At the age of 19, Gal won 2004’s Miss Israel beauty pageant, and followed that up with a two-year stint as an Israeli Army officer. The experience gives her the perfect blend of exotic beauty and physical toughness needed to play the Amazon Princess. Gal’s movie career is has been limited mostly to her role as Gisele Harabo in the Fast and Furious Series, but she has also been in such movies as Date Night, and Knight and Day.
In a press release, director Zack Snyder said, “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.”
