Zack Snyder, Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot dropped into Hall H. The fantastic four were there to drop some tidbits on Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

One of the most expected and interesting moments was appearance of Gal Gadot’s costume as Wonder Woman. As it was previously rumored, the costume of Wonder Woman features cuffs to her elbows, a sword and a breastplate that looks more Roman-influenced than the red-blue-and-yellow bikini-and-cape costume that fans saw Diana Price wear in the comics. Thus, she looks incredible and to a certain extent classic.

Despite the fact that the Internet burst out with pounding fists about Gadot’s decision to play part of amazing Wonder Woman, the just unveiled photo can erase some fears.

“Again, the Israeli actress looks fantastic. Gadot appears to have been hittin’ the stairs. And although those eyes are piercing, she’d win more than a stare off,” writes Crave Online.

Snyder also unveiled to public a brief reel from what they’ve been shooting. Batman (his part is performed by Ben Affleck) was shown in full armored gear, making some to guess that Snyder is taking his costume cues from Frank Miller’s graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns. And like that, they were gone. “Batman v. Superman” movie is under production at the moment and Snyder and his crew prefer do not reveal any secrets and details.

However, they have work to do. And with the announcement of Chris Terio was asked to provide a “Justice League” script, they’ve got a lot of work to come.

The Warner Brothers panel is two hours long. So although there was no on-stage announcement for the Israeli beauty getting a standalone Wonder Woman film, that could come during the panel. Many more announcements are expected. But, while, fans might not be content with a 10-minute presentation, take heed that the brevity was to get back to work.

By the way, practically all the fans are freaking out over how amazing Gal, her costume and the poster all look, but there’re those saying Gal’s body is a big problem for this particular role.

“I think Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman outfit is perfectly fitting for ‘Batman v. Superman’. It’s muted down, mysterious and sexy. Perfect,” wrote a Twitter user.

OMG! Can’t wait!  Gal Gadot looking so ferociously sexy as my idol Wonder Woman,” another added.

“From the very start, I always knew & believed Gal Gadot was THE PERFECT choice for Wonder Woman role in ^^” agreed one more Internet fan when seeing the costume.

However, nothing’s ever perfect, and a few fans have noted that the “Fast and Furious” star might be too model-thin to play this butt-kicking character. However, even with the complaints that she could be more muscle-filled, people can’t deny she’s gonna be amazing on screen.
