Nerdist News: Gal Gadot is Wonder Woman, Beauty and The Beast, and Oxygen in Space

Oh my, loyal viewers. Today’s episode of Nerdist News is a DOOZY.

NOT ONLY did Zack Snyder confirm that Wonder Woman is in Batman vs. Superman, or Justice League, or Man of Steel Too, or whatever it’s called, BUT he also announced the woman who’ll be playing our favorite Amazonian!

You’ll get the dish on Diana Prince, PLUS a glimpse at an exotic (French) new adaptation of Beauty and the Beast from the director of Silent Hill! It’s guaranteed to be both heart-warming and gut-wrenching. Oh, and we have some SPACE NEWS! You wanna know about space, right? Of course you do. You’re here.

Enjoy, fine feathered friends, and tell us in the comments below – do you like the new Wonder Woman? Who else do you think might show up in this movie? Better yet, who do you think won’t? See you Friday!

    Wonder Woman!

  2. Gdub says:

    @David Zane Aarons – all Israelis join the military for two years, not just those in great physical shape

  3. David B says:

    I can honestly say that after Ben Affleck as Batman I kept being excited for this movie (but it was difficult), now I really do not care about it anymore. Not so much for the casting, but just the fact Wonder Woman is in it too. This movie sounds like a giant pile of crap. I’m sure I will watch it on Bluray, unless they do some great marketing to get me to the theater.

  4. RG says:

    Gina Carano cannot act.

    It’s like when people suggest wrestlers for superheroes, just because of their size.

    I love how people who haven’t actually witnessed the auditions or met any of these people think they somehow know better EVERY SINGLE TIME…

  5. Rob S. says:

    I wanted Gina Carano. All us fanboys will will it into being.

  6. Axelsan says:

    Maybe the worse Wonder Woman casting since Cathy Lee Crosby. Don’t get me wrong, Gal is hot and can act, but just not the right body type. Just like Cathy Lee Crosby wasn’t right.
    OK, I’m old enough to remember that WW movie.

  7. Jim Sharkey says:

    The story about the Hubble discovery is wrong. Hubble detected water, not oxygen on 5 exoplanets.

  8. David Zaine Aarons says:

    Gadot was in the Israeli army. I think with Hollywood personal trainers and the kind of fitness ethic she’d have picked up during her service time, she can put on a little more muscle and look more like I imagine Wonder Woman.

  9. Hmm Gina Carano can’t act however. I’m not sure if this actress can either but she has been in a number of movies and shows(mostly overseas)

  10. Orionsaint says:

    Chobot will always be my Wonder Woman.

  11. Daniella says:

    I would have liked Wonder Woman to have been a little more curvy.. not another stick actress.

  12. Luis says:

    Gina Carano was born to be Princess Diana
