The Batman-Superman movie has found its Wonder Woman

Knowing that what this little Batman and Superman boys’ club could use is a woman’s incapacitating touch, Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel: Blackety Black, Don’t Talk Back (To Batman) has officially cast Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in the sequel that is still almost two long, blog-filling years away. The former Miss Israel turned Fast & Furious star had been on the shortlist alongside Olga Kurylenko and Elodie Yung, eventually convincing Warner Bros. and Snyder that they were just waiting for Gadot, and that she was the one to rescue Diana Prince from an increasingly hilarious history of failed attempts to bring her back to the screen. (Perhaps it helped that Gadot spent some time in the Israeli Army.) It’s still unknown how large of a role Wonder Woman will actually play in a movie that’s also expected to feature an appearance from the Flash, as the sequel makes its obvious overtures toward setting up a Justice League film. But in the broader spectrum that is the comic-book universe, Gadot is already playing a significant starring role, in debates over whether her breasts are big enough. Welcome to the rest of your life, Gal Gadot.
