It's been over three months since we learned that Ben Affleck was going to be playing in Batman in the Man of Steel sequel, but since, there hasn't been much news. Well, apparently, we were all waiting for Gadot, as in Gal Gadot, the Israeli actress best known for playing Gisele in the Fast and Furious series. She will be playing Wonder Woman. In terms of her Wonder credentials, consider the fact that this former Miss Universe competitor worked as a model while simultaneously serving in the Israeli army. At minimum, she's more wonderful than Affleck is batlike.
