Comic con has brought us many surprises and one of them is defintely actress Gal Gadot as wonder woman in the up coming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. One, of the many new heroes added to the sequel, looks quite different from the normal Wonder woman we've come to see over the years. Her head piece appears to be facing down, not up, they also went with a much darker costume over all, ditching the more vibrant red and blue look. While a lot of people criticized Gadot being cast as Wonder Woman, director Zack Snyder has always had a knack for putting together an odd cast and bringing the best out of them. We'll have to wait and see and hopefully we'll see some footage from Batman v Superman soon.
