After decades of Batman and Superman movies, sequels, reboots and spinoffs, Wonder Woman is finally getting a turn in the spotlight.
DC Entertainment’s leading lady will star in a standalone film in 2017, Warner Bros. announced Wednesday during Time Warner’s investors conference. (DC also announced films for Shazam, The Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman, Suicide Squad, Cyborg and a two-part project for the Justice League.)
Gal Gadot, who is playing Wonder Woman in 2016’s “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” will reprise the role in the standalone movie.
“Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe,” Snyder said last year when Gadot was cast. “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.”
Comics creators, including longtime Wonder Woman writer Gail Simone, took to Twitter to celebrate the Wonder Woman movie.
