After Christopher Nolan‘s Batman films earned enough money to buy out God’s share in Heaven, and “Man of Steel” also did well, DC decided to press forward with a planned “Batman vs Superman” film (even though Superman would win in, like, under five seconds). That film has a Wonder Woman role, and Gal Godot will be filling it.
Who is Gal Godot? Well, she was Miss Israel in 2004, but she’s best known for being in the fourth, fifth and sixth “The Fast and the Furious” films. She also played a character named Lisa in one episode of “Entourage” and briefly appeared in “Knight and Day” with Tom Cruise. Surely, you remember that.
Godot will be appearing beside Ben Affleck‘s doomed-to-fail Batman and Henry Cavill‘s Superman. And although her previous roles might lead one to assume she was chosen based on how good she looks in spandex, director Zack Snyder is saying she’s actually a good actress:
“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.”
And there you have it. Zack Snyder thinks this thing will be great, and he’s the man that brought you “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole.” Has he ever lied to you? Have the owls of Ga’Hoole ever lied to you? Will they have cameos? No clue.
“Batman vs. Superman” is slated for release in 2015, when the public can decide whether the filmmakers should have just used stock footage of Lynda Carter. (Yes.)
