When it was announced that Ben Affleck would be taking the place of Christian Bale as Batman for the ‘sequel’ to Man of Steel, the whole world it seemed rioted against the choice in actor.

Affleck, who previously played Daredevil in the 2003 film adaptation of the comic, was not welcomed by fans when he was chosen to take the role that Bale had portrayed for six years.

Today, it was revealed that another member of the Justice League had been cast and it’s one of the roles that had several female actress line-up for; the role of Wonder Woman.

Man of Steel and Batman vs Superman director, Zack Snyder took the internet to reveal that Israeli model turned actress, Gal Gadot would be putting on the iconic blue, red and gold costume made famous by Lynda Carter and modernized by Adrianne Palicki in the never-made-it-to-air Wonder Woman series by The CW.

“Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe,”  Snyder said in a statement. “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.”

And like all things, fans took to social media, mostly Twitter, to address how they felt about the casting decision. Gadot’s bio lists Fast & Furious 6Fast FiveFast & Furious and Knight and Day as some of the films she had acted in.

No matter what the opinion is, looks like Gadot will in fact be Wonder Woman in the film that is slated to hit theaters on July 17, 2015.
