First Look: Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in 'Batman v. Superman'

July 26, 2014

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

Warner Bros. blew the roof off Comic-Con immediately by bringing director Zack Snyder out to Hall H, introduced with some awesome concept art in motion from Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. The footage shown was a teaser that seemed shot specifically for the convention with Ben Affleck decked out in a bulky, metal batsuit reminiscent of Iron Man, turning on the bat signal. And that's where Superman (Henry Cavill) shows up in the sky, floating down to a rooftop, flaring his heat vision eyes. But in addition, we also got to see a quick shot of concept art of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, and she looks great. Look!

Here's Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice from Warner Bros:

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

    wtf is this? Clash of the Titans?
    • Steven
      I actually didn't mind the visual look of Clash of the Titans. The acting, direction and overall story on the other hand....
  • Stephen Ritchie
    Wow, am actually blown away. I honestly think Marvel should cancel coming to SDCC entirely or they would be even more embarrassed. On second note Marvel should just cancel all their films and future plans. It's over and done. WB/DC just won.
    • Jon Odishaw
      I loved man of steel. And I think this will be great. But keep it in your pants.

        He's a DC fanboy who will always hate Marvel no matter what...don't bother reasoning.
    • dawko
      For Marvel's defense, they started first, building their characters with smaller movies, leading to team-up movie and carrying on, thankfully(for them) they are able to introduce less popular characters and they plan on bringing much more movies in the near future. MoS was for WB/DC something like IM1 was for Marvel. Small steps... Marvel is leading the way at the moment, WB/DC has a long road ahead of them.
    • mooreworthy
      Based on a picture? Granted a promising one at thst, but sp was MoS that got mixed reviews and in my opinion was not ip to par story wise with the Winter Solider.
    • Karl Nilsson
      Marvel can stay home and count their money. Or swim around in it like Scrooge McDuck

      Marvel has been busting their ass for seven years building up characters with their standalone films and eventual group of Netflix series leading up to The Avengers. They are continuing to move forward. WB/DC keeps giving us films and not even going for synchronization or sharing a universe. As much as I enjoyed The Dark Knight series and moments (only moments) of MoS, they are nowhere near the organization and hype of Marvel Studios. With this new universe that they are building with Snyder, they have a chance. Pretty much it is a wait and see game.
    • JBrotsis
      WW does look pretty impressive and the footage shown for BvS sounds pretty neat, but to say Marvel should stop altogether based off one article is pretty ridiculous. Marvel hasn't even had their panel showing yet, so you have no idea how impressive they're going to be. Plus Marvel already has more to offer (more characters to feature, more team ups, more stories) whereas DC is just trying to make their first JL movie as rushed as possible. Marvel still has the upper hand. Plus....Batman's suit is "all metallic resembling Iron Man's suit"....looks like Marvel had a bit of inspiration for the design of Batman haha
    • What should Marvel be embarrassed about, exactly...?
  • In Vader's voice: "Impresssssssivvve."
    • mooreworthy
      "Most impressive."
  • Steven
    Nice pair of pins.
  • Ricardo_PT
    It looks cool and I get the look they were aiming for, the heels are pretty horrible though and make no sense. And also, why is Snyder so afraid to use a little color?
    • Billy Bob Throrton
      yeah she has Silk Spectre's boots. I wonder what Zack Snyder's fetish is?
  • Xerxexx
    Well done Snyder...well done.
  • Dominic
    she must have pads in that breastplate , so that her real breasts won't bounce painfully against it .. Maybe this can be seen as a more Realistic-Looking WonderWoman , not one with the male fantasy imagery of huge breasts . Just huge breastPLATE ( shrugs - better protection for the milk producers ? ) didn't ALL the Amazons , in reality , cut their left one off , to fire a bow better ? ...
    • Sky
      Yea, but then we lose sex appeal... unless ur into girls with one breast?
      • Billy Bob Throrton
        because thats the whole point of having women in movies. sex appeal. not because theyre 51% of the audience or anything
        • Dominic
          hmm from the misogynist viewpoint , those bare thighs and what they're leading to , looks pretty sexy enough ... but if the point is to make a REALISTIC female image as an Amazonian , the actresses playing the archers would have to strap one down ...from the pic , they went the other way and just thickened the bra-cup armor ( remember , Lynda Carter basically had a thin Lycra uniform on , and didn't need much of a push-up bra , in contrast ... )
    • Snev De la Fontaine
      That's what I think is strangest of all, to be honest. As a male with fantasies, I can't say that I mind my female superheroes being busty and having plenty of cleavage except of course that I don't want our male fantasies to be a dominating force (with all its negative consequences). For that reason I'll gladly keep my male fantasies inside my male head. But what I don't understand is when they do things like cast a non busty lady and having her wear busty armor. That seems like the worst of both worlds. We don't really get our fantasies, while still painting a highly sexualised picture of women.
      • Dominic
        Lol well like i said , better protection for the life-givers .. and it's Hollywood - Image IS everything , not reality .... this is prob her "battlesuit " anyway . I'm sure you'll get a better look at her real ones sometime during the film ...
  • avconsumer2
    Sweet. Can't wait to see her... in two years.
    • mooreworthy
      Damn, you just killed my buzz!
  • Бабак
    Zack Snyder is the right guy for this job.hard to wait...
  • mooreworthy
    That's what up! I know I'm watching both Captain America and BvS, but looks this might be watched first then third!
  • Maxx
    Great photo! I was worried about Gadot for the role aesthetically but this photo gives me some hope. She isn't a half bad actress either and could bring something to the role. I also like that they have her in a normal pose and not drastically contorted in an effort to make her frail or what hollywood thinks of as feminine. Good on you, Snyder.
    WOW! I really am happy with the look. It will be interesting to see how they incorporate the look to big city.
    • Billy Bob Throrton
      that is the big the city,stupid,see the rebar?
      • DAVIDPD
        LOL, man. I meant in a pre-ruined city.
  • Qrious
    I approve. Carry on. :)
  • John Parker
    Looks more Xena then Wonder Women. Actually, Lucy Lawless would have been one hell of a WW back in the Xena haydays... Too bad WB didn't think of her as bankable.
    • Alex Hunter
      They did cast her as Wonder Woman. Check out Lucy's bio and you'll see she played Wonder Woman at least once.
  • Trey Wilson
    Looks like something from a bad porno movie I'd watch.
    • TheOct8pus
      Please provide us with some links or at least titles to said movies....
  • Brad VanLerberg
    It doesn't look like Xena, Xena looked like Wonder Woman. That was the point. What you have is a more realistic depiction of what a greek amazonian warrior would look like while keeping all of the familiar attributes of Wonder Woman's traditional costume; tiara, lasso, eagle breast plate, metal arm bracers...none of which Xena wore.
    • John Parker
      The color scheme is definitely more Xena then red, white and blue WW. Also isn't the lasso supposed to be gold, as with the tiara and eagle?
  • Snev De la Fontaine
    Wonder Woman is an amazon. There was never a more perfect time to cast a good-looking curvy woman with a stronger build in a role like this rather than having the usual stick-figure. She looks like a gush of wind is going to blow her away.
    • Jon Odishaw
      Gal Gadot is a stick just so you know. She probably put on some weight for the role but she is a stick
  • Bl00dwerK
    If it had some color it would look great...
  • txJM
    That is terribly generic.
  • Cal J.
    She needs Conan and Subotai to complete the picture.
  • jonnyb61
    aaaannnndddd my expectations for this movie are ruined.
  • TheOct8pus
    Terrible costume. She looks like an extra in a Thor movie
  • Enrique Sanchez
    where is the muscle ? . she doesn't look like an amazon more like a model hehehehe
  • Randall Miller
  • Jonathan
    I'm cool with it.'s only Wonder Woman, for god's sake.
  • redskulllives
    She must have given good head to get the part
