Meet Your New Amazonian Princess: Gal Gadot To Play Wonder Woman in Batman Vs Superman
The good looking gal from The Fast & Furious franchise fame has joined the cast of Zack Snyder’s next film, here’s the official statement:
“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,” Snyder said.
Variety first reported that Gadot, “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” Elodie Yung and Olga Kurylenko had tested for the part that was believed to be Wonder Woman.
The Wonder Woman rumor has been kicking around for some time, and insiders believe the plan is to have not just Batman and Superman in the film but several members of the Justice League as well. It’s unclear which members, but Wonder Woman (Diana Prince) and the Flash are said to be locks to make an appearance in some fashion, whether that’s a significant role or a cameo.
AMC Orders a Pilot For “PREACHER” Series
With Breaking Bad now concluded, AMC needs a viable replacement for the series, and the network may have just found it. After years of unfounded rumors, and being stuck in various stages of development hell, Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s Preacher may finally be coming to the small screen, as AMC has ordered a pilot for the series be filmed.
Created by Ennis and Dillon, Preacher is one of the more popular and continually successful series from Vertigo’s illustrious backlist, and ranks right with 100 Bullets near the top of the list of series longtime Vertigo readers have wanted to see translated to television. The project seemed tantalizingly close to being realized more than once in: director D.J. Caruso was once attached to a film adaptation, and Sam Mendes was said to be working on a small screen version for HBO as recently as a few years ago.
Now if you been paying attention to this blog, this is huge news. Preacher might well be one of the greatest stories ever told in comic form and it fits like a ring to AMC to do something like this as their next project. I’ll keep my fingers crossed. This could be the next great series to ever hit TV!
