Gal Gadot begins Wonder Woman training for Batman vs. Superman

January 10th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

The Israeli website YNet has posted a couple images of Gal Gadot leaving fitness training for her upcoming role as Wonder Woman in Batman vs Superman!

The model turned actress has previously stated that in addition to bulking up, she’d be learning Kung Fu, kickboxing, sword fighting, and jujutsu for the role.

Personal trainer Mark Twight, who got Henry Cavill, Michael Shannon, and Antje Traue in shape for Man of Steel, looks to be overseeing her training. He took to Twitter to reveal he’d be spending time in Israel:

Batman vs. Superman (or whatever) was scripted by David S. Goyer from a story he co-created with Zack Snyder, and is now being rewritten by Chris Terrio. Snyder is directing. Man of Steel‘s Henry Cavill will reprise his role as Superman in the film, Ben Affleck is Bruce Wayne/Batman and Gal Gadot is Diana Prince/Wonder Woman. Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane will also reprise their roles in the sequel.

It is scheduled to hit theaters on July 17, 2015.
