After months of speculation, Warner Bros. has officially announced that Gal Gadot will play Wonder Woman in Batman vs. Superman.

In a statement, director Zach Synder stated, “Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe. 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.”

As the first woman ever to play Wonder Woman in a film, Gadot certainly has some big shoes to fill. Hopefully she’s up to the task. Gadot is best known for her involvement in the Fast and Furious films as Gisele.

In addition to this casting, Variety reports that Snyder and Warner Bros. are looking for the film’s villain, with Callan Mulvey being the frontrunner.

Batman vs. Superman is set to be released July 15, 2015.
