Batman V Superman Wonder Woman revealed

First look at Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice

ZZ63C11484The first look at Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice has finally arrived.

The poster (via SlashFilm) certainly seems in keeping with the tone we’ve been seeing so far. Those iconic bright colours have been traded in for an almost monochrome look, and she’s sporting a sword. It’s a little bit Xena: Warrior Princess (which is no bad thing in itself).

She looks like she’s standing on a wrecked highway, but it’s not clear where exactly; no iconic Gotham smokestacks or shiny Metropolis sky scrapers here.

Hopefully, this will at least go some way to silencing those who wailed about Gadot being too skinny for the part (remember those guys?).

Clearly, Zack Snyder’s Wonder Woman is a warrior. If you were wondering how the filmmakers were going to fit the character in their stony-faced universe following Ben Affleck’s non-more grim Batman profile shot, here’s your answer. What do you think?

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice will be released on 6 May 2016 – read our defence of Ben Affleck’s casting here and Gal Gadot’s casting here. Find out more about the comics that inspired the film with new digital magazine Uncanny Comics.
