Gal Gadot shares new image of Wonder Woman plus new cast members added

11.21.2015

WONDER WOMAN herself, Gal Gadot, has shared a new image of the Amazon Princess via Twitter, while WB has released a new cast list (sans character names) for the upcoming superhero feature. Joining Gadot in the film is the already announced Chris Pine as Captain Steve Trevor (see him in costume here), Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Ewen Bremner, Said Taghmaoui, Elena Anaya and Lucy Davis. A healthy mix of talent, but there's no word on which characters they'll be playing (let your imagination run wild). There's nothing to say that this is the full cast list either and I'd speculate we'll hear a few more names as filming continues on the film. My guess is that many of these folks would make up part of the Amazon cast, either as Gods or Warriors, but we'll see.

Previous rumored names we've heard were Nicole Kidman for an unnamed role (possibly the Queen of the Amazons), Eva Green for Circe, and Sean Bean for Ares, but either they aren't part of this announcement or their deals didn't close. Such is the way things go when securing names for big ticket movies. Yesterday, we got a look at Megan Gale in costume as Wonder Woman for George Miller's canceled JUSTICE LEAGUE film, which is an interesting dynamic compared to Gadot's look, which is a bit more warrior-like. You can catch up on our latest WONDER WOMAN scoop HERE if you're looking for rumored details on the story, characters, etc.

WONDER WOMAN is currently set for release on June 23, 2017.

Here's the full press release:

BURBANK, Calif.— Principal photography is underway on Warner Bros. Pictures’ Wonder Woman feature film, the highly anticipated action adventure from director Patty Jenkins (“Monster,” AMC’s “The Killing”), starring Gal Gadot (the “Fast & Furious” movies) in the role of Diana Prince/Wonder Woman. The character will make her big screen debut this spring in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” but the new film will mark her first time headlining a feature.

The film also stars Chris Pine (the “Star Trek” films) as Captain Steve Trevor, Robin Wright (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” Netflix’s “House of Cards”), Danny Huston (“Clash of the Titans,” “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”), David Thewlis (the “Harry Potter” films, “The Theory of Everything”), Ewen Bremner (“Exodus: Gods and Kings,” “Snowpiercer”), Saïd Taghmaoui (“American Hustle”), Elena Anaya (“The Skin I Live In”) and Lucy Davis (“Shaun of the Dead”).

The film is being produced by Charles Roven, Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder, with Richard Suckle, Stephen Jones, Wesley Coller, Geoff Johns and Rebecca Roven serving as executive producers.

Joining Jenkins behind the camera are director of photography Matthew Jensen (“Chronicle,” “Fantastic Four,” HBO’s “Game of Thrones”), Oscar-nominated production designer Aline Bonetto (“Amélie,” “A Very Long Engagement,” “Pan”), and Oscar-winning editor Martin Walsh (“Chicago,” “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” “V for Vendetta”), and Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming (“The Dark Knight” trilogy, “Topsy-Turvy”).

Principal photography will take place on location in the UK, France and Italy.

Set to open in 2017, the Wonder Woman feature film is based on characters created by William Moulton Marston, appearing in comic books published by DC Entertainment. It will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

This has been going on for so long, for a movie that hasn't even started filming yet.
So much controversy over one damn photo.
Personally, I've got no trouble with her.

I love her look for the film....

It would be so stupid to have a pasty white actress trying to be the Princess of the Amazons. She doesn't have the physical size to look like the character should, but then again her strength doesn't come from multiple reps at high weight, so I can live with it. The question is going to be the script and her acting ability (which I haven't seen up to now). I'm really hoping they pull it off because she is an interesting character (although they really have to come up with a clever way to

Beauty and Talent?

Gal Gadot, what a beautiful woman. I'm sure she'll do fine as Wonder Woman since it's only a supporting role at first. I'm sure they wouldn't cast someone that doesn't have the talent to match the looks. Oh, wait... that happens all the time in the old days. I'm sure for a big budget movie, they wouldn't do that. Oh, wait...

Looks fine to me

I'm looking forward to this. Hopefully it lives up to expectations. I wonder if they got Robin Wright for Hippolyta, and Danny Huston for Ares, and Sean Bean/Nicole Kidman fell through.

Yup, this looks horrible.

I don't understand the need to have a toothpick and a bad actress play this role. There are hundreds of better people out there to play this part. She has proven in everything she has been in, she is not capable of doing action scenes or even just acting.

I totally agree. Haven't of course seen the movie or BvsS yet but I still don't understand the so called artistic choice of Gadot.Hollywood is full of money mysteries I guess.

2 photos are enough to let me think she's not the Wonder Woman I wanted to watch in a DC movie.I agree that nobody has seen the movie yet and maybe Gal has increased her acting skills and maybe she'll be good.But just by judging on photos,she's not Diana Prince.She's not fit to be Diana Prince.She could be any princess warrior for another 300 movie or a Clash Of Titans 3rd film but not Wonder Woman.

Um, you realize she is an actual trained soldier, right? She also did ALL her own stunts in her Fast & Furious films.

You can make legitimate criticisms without being a douche.
