Gal Gadot, Wonder Woman
While she wouldn't have been my personal first choice, I'm sure Gadot will step into the role. She certainly has the looks (she was Miss Israel in 2004), she'll just need to add more muscle to her frame. My only concern at this point is overcrowding of heroes in the film. But, I'll reserve judgement until we see the finished product.
The film is scheduled to release July 17, 2015.
