Gadot gets more screen time as Wonder Woman in new flick

Although it was initially reported that Gal Gadot would only have a brief cameo as Wonder Woman in the upcoming sequel to Zack Snyder's take on the Man of Steel, new images for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice show the Israeli beauty featuring far more prominently in the storyline by Chris Terio and David S. Goyer.

Fans of the DC Universe who have followed the exploits of these three heroes, from their beginnings to the formation of the Justice League, know that a very close-knit relationship and bond forms between Detective Comics' most popular protagonists.

From the film's first official poster to Entertainment Weekly's 2015 Comic-Con special edition, the Amazonian warrior princess is front and centre between the Dark Knight and the last son of Krypton. It's a similar placement to the comic art we posted here at the time of Gadot's casting.

Few details are known as to how each of the heroes will find themselves battling against one another, only to emerge as the first and greatest team of superheroes (they came together in 1960, before Marvel's Avengers in September 1963).

We may get a softening of Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne/Batman by the time Dawn of Justice concludes, as this image of Diana Prince and Bruce Wayne together at a party in once-stately Wayne Manor suggests.

The blockbuster, scheduled to hit theatres next summer, will also introduce us to Jason Momoa's Arthur Curry, a.k.a Aquaman, and Ezra Miller's Barry Allen, better known as The Flash.
