In conjunction with Saturday’s Comic-Con appearance by “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot and director Zack Snyder, fans got their first glimpse of the new Wonder Woman when Snyder tweeted out the first photo of Gadot in costume.
It’s been a busy week for those awaiting the highly anticipated 2016 follow-up to “Man of Steel,” as Snyder also recently shared a new close-up photo of Ben Affleck under the cowl.
Even in its earliest stages, the upcoming movie, which brings together a triumvirate of DC heroes and sets the stage for a future “Justice League” film that Snyder will direct, has been the subject of strong commentary in the fan community. Many openly criticized the director’s casting choices — including Affleck as Batman, Godot as Wonder Woman and “Social Network” star Jesse Eisenberg as Superman’s traditionally burly, bald and middle-aged archnemesis Lex Luthor.
As with Snyder’s reveal earlier this year of the first shot of Ben Affleck in costume posing with the new Batmobile, the photo prompted a huge response on social media, with “Wonder Woman” becoming a trending topic on Twitter within minutes. Many fans were quick to praise the edgy new take on Princess Diana, but of course, the reaction was far from unanimous.
Take a look at some of the responses below:
