As rumors began to circulate this week courtesy of movie producer Daniel Alter’s Twitter DAlter007, fans took his mentions of Wonder Woman and Doomsday in Man of Steel 2 with a grain of salt.
This morning, DC Comics announced that Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious, Fast Five, Knight & Day) is taking on the role of the Amazon Princess in the next installment of Zach Snyder’s Superman franchise. Coming from a background of modeling, Gadot most notably took the title of Miss Israel in the 2004 Miss Universe beauty pageant.
With Cavill in blue tights and Affleck donning the cowl, Gadot’s involvement has turned the World’s Finest into the DC Trinity. As Warner Brothers continues to release information that guarantees packed theaters and sold-out showings, whether the three heroes will team up or not remains up in the air.
Coincidentally, Gadot recently starred in Fast & Furious 6 alongside Gina Carano, Henry Cavill’s former girlfriend as well as a popular fan cast choice for the part of Wonder Woman.
In July, comic book artist Jordan Gibson jokingly tweeted, “Why even make a Justice League movie when Fast Five exists?”
It would turn out that he wasn’t far from what was to come.
Of course, with casting announcements comes backlash. This morning when I showed my journalism teacher an article on Gal’s new role, he called out how skinny she was in the picture displayed with the announcement. Being that Wonder Woman is an Amazon warrior, this criticism that makes sense. Gadot may become one of the few actresses to undergo a proper superhero transformation.
When YouTube fan editor kaschei2003 released his Superman: Doomsday saga over the course of years, he included a stellar take on the Princess of Themyscira. He showed her as a warrior in battle, much like Meagan Marie’s beloved cosplay of the character.
If you have not watched kaschei2003’s fan edits, I recommend that you do. With over 4,400,000 views on YouTube, it is likely that his approach to bringing the Trinity together is what inspires the Man of Steel sequel. Like Daniel Alter shamelessly tweeted, “Need to talk to some people tonight about Doomsday in Batman VS Superman.” Since Zod demolished Metropolis in Man of Steel, the likely assumption is that Doomsday will only be hinted at, as he is in the newly released DVD. When Doomsday strikes in the third film lined up for the DC cinematic universe, there will be a reason for the Justice League to unite.
This afternoon, Variety posted an article stating that Callan Mulvey (300: Rise of an Empire, Captain America: The Winter Soldier) may be up for a role as a villain. Not long after, Latino Review tweeted the name “Metallo” in response to the possible casting. Throughout production of Man of Steel, Metallo’s name was mentioned multiple times with rumors of a surprise appearance. The robotic John Corben was also featured in the Superman: Doomsday edit, adding validity to the theory that the fan edits might have had a part in today’s developments.
