Hollywood is abuzz with the news that actress Gal Gadot has been cast in the sequel to Man of Steel. We already know that the film will feature Henry Cavill as Superman and Ben Affleck as Batman. Gadot’s casting confirms that the film also has the character of Wonder Woman. This is news that 14 year old me would have Loved and not surprising, 40+ year old me is pretty ecstatic over it. It seems as though my dream of movies starring my favorite comic book heroes is finally coming true.
My ultimate movie fantasy of all my fave DC comics heroes coming together is actually becoming a reality. The Holy Trinity of comic book heroes in Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman are in this movie but who else will be showing up? Will we also hear news of the Flash being added to the cast? What about Green Lantern? Maybe there is a scene where they need someone to talk to fish? Can we expect Aquaman to show up and save the day?
Needless to say this news is being well received by me and millions just like me. This story about casting in a film that doesn’t even come out until summer of 2015 is stealing the headlines from movies being released this weekend. This should make Warner Brothers studio want to kick themselves in the rear end for not making these movies sooner.
All I can say is I cant wait for 2015 to get here!
