Check out first picture of new Wonder Woman

By Nick Levine

The first picture of Israeli actress Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman has been unveiled at Comic-Con 2014 in San Diego, California. Check it out below.


Gadot will take on the iconic role – made famous by Lynda Carter in the 1970s Wonder Woman TV series – in the forthcoming superhero mash-up movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which is the sequel to last year’s Man of Steel.

Dawn of Justice will pit Batman and Superman against each other for the first time ever on the big screen, with Man of Steel star Henry Cavill returning as Superman and Ben Affleck taking on the role of Bruce Wayne aka Batman.

Alongside Cavill, Affleck and Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg will play the villainous Lex Luthor and Jeremy Irons will appear as Bruce Wayne’s butler, Alfred. Meanwhile, Man of Steel stars Amy Adams, Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburne are all returning for the sequel.

Dawn of Justice had been scheduled for release in cinemas on July 17, 2015, but earlier this year, Warner Bros announced they were pushing it back and the film will now arrive around nine months later on May 6, 2016.

The first picture of Henry Cavill in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was released earlier this month (July) – check it out here.
