Comic fans have been given a first glimpse at actress Gal Gadot in the upcoming Wonder Woman film.
A far cry from the cheesy adaptations in previous years, Gadot resembles more of an Amazonian warrior than 1970s superhero.
Wonder Woman will be a crucial character in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice film, with Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill playing the title roles respectively.
Director Zack Snyder shared the picture on his Twitter account after first debuting it while discussing the flick at Comic Con 2014 in San Diego.
Gadot, best known for small roles in Fast & Furious, said she never expected to land the coveted part.
"I was just on my way to shooting at LA. I landed at New York on a connection flight when my agent, Hadas Lichtenstein, called me," she explained earlier this year.
"She says to me 'Wonder Woman!' and I’m like 'What??' – 'The role is yours!…and it’s a secret and the news are not yet announced and you can’t tell anyone…'.
"I’m saying to her 'Are you serious??'- and we both scream!"
