The sequel to "Man of Steel" has its Wonder Woman! "Diana Prince" will be played by 28 year-old Israeli actress and model, Gal Gadot. She will be joining Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill in the yet-to-be-titled sequel to Zack Snyder's summer hit.

According to Snyder, “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."

Gal has been in the last three "Fast and Furious" films but this role will clearly be her biggest. What do you think? Will she be able to fill the boots?

The tentatively titled "Batman vs. Superman" is due in theaters July 17, 2015.
