Wonder Woman is well on its way to becoming a standalone film. Starring Israeli actress Gal Gadot in the title role, the first Wonder Woman photo has been released at the same time additional cast members have been announced.
Known for her role in two of the Fast & Furious films, Gal Gadot shared her Wonder Woman image on her Instagram account.
“Almost 75 years in the making… #WonderWoman is underway,” she captioned the stunning shot.
Those familiar with Lynda Carter’s TV Wonder Woman must admit, this is a far cry from that version. Gal Gadot has a haunting look in her eye that will no doubt add intrigue to her Wonder Woman role.
It was announced this past summer that Chris Pine will star opposite Gal Gadot. On Saturday, Warner Bros. Pictures announced that Robin Wright, Danny Huston, Harry Potter star David Thewlis, Ewen Bremner, Saïd Taghmaoui, Elena Anaya, and Lucy Davis have all signed on to star in Wonder Woman, too.

Gadot’s Wonder Woman will make her debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, starring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill. That hits theaters in March.
Wonder Woman–the film–will premiere in theaters in June of 2017.
What’s your take on this new Wonder Woman character? She’s certainly darker and edgier than Lynda Carter’s character from the 70s.
