After Warner Bros. revealed the first footage from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice at Comic-Con 2014, director Zack Snyder then released a high quality shot of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman via his Twitter.
In the shot, Gadot is standing, dressed in the classic Wonder Woman outfit, atop of what looks like a mountain or volcano. Her feet planted firmly, she grips a sword tightly in her left hand, as if preparing for a fight:
What’s interesting about Wonder Woman’s costume is that instead of incorporating the traditional red, blue, and gold elements that she’s known for, her costume is instead strictly a bronze colour with much darker elements.
We first reported on the news that Gadot had joined Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice back in December.
Many were worried that Gadot was not the right choice for Wonder woman because of her smaller stature. However, from the looks of the image above, Gadot has definitely managed to change her body in order to star as the famous Amazon warrior.
When Gadot was cast, Snyder released a statement, praising Gadot as the perfect choice for the role:
Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite. Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be released in theatres on May 6, 2016.
