Gal Gadot will have the opportunity to shine twice this year within the superhero genre. With the incredible line-up of comic book movies coming out this year, Gadot will be appearing as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman in both her standalone feature directed by Patty Jenkins and Justice League directed by Zack Snyder.
Despite the divisive reception to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, critics and fans for the most part embraced the live-action big screen debut of Wonder Woman. Gadot showcased both the beautiful femininity and the intense physicality of the most iconic female superhero to grace the comic book pages, and fans are excited to see more of the Amazonian warrior.
On the mobile platform Vero, Zack Snyder shared a photo featuring Gadot working in a studio in what looks like to be a post-production ADR session for Justice League. The image features a new glimpse at Diana Prince, who seems to be sharing a conversation with Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck). You can see the photo below, courtesy of Twitter user Ken Pejoro.

For one, it’s exciting to see anything new related to Justice League. Warner Bros. and DC Films want to make sure that Wonder Woman has the opportunity to stand out in her solo outing first, but her prominence in Justice League working side-by-side with Bruce Wayne to unite Arthur Curry, Victor Stone and Barry Allen cannot be understated.
Both Wonder Woman and Justice League will hopefully bring the DC Extended Universe to the much-needed critical acclaim it desires. Hopefully, Geoff Johns’ sentiments of bringing “hope and optimism” to the franchise rings true when these films open in theaters this year.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder and starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, Willem Dafoe, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J.K. Simmons and Ciáran Hinds, Justice League opens in theaters on November 17.
