Gal Gadot, a leggy model and 2004 Miss Universe contestant from Israel, also starred in three movies in the Fast & Furious franchise that featured the late Paul Walker.

The model turned actress is now the choice for portraying Wonder Woman.

Warner Bros. Pictures confirmed Wednesday that Gadot, 28, was cast to play Diana Prince, and her superhero alter ego Wonder Woman, in director Zack Snyder's upcoming Man of Steel follow-up film.

The as-yet-untitled movie, scheduled for release July 17, 2015, features "The Tudors" star Henry Cavill in his second stint as Superman (and Clark Kent) and Ben Affleck  as Bruce Wayne/Batman.

Gadot steps into Lynda Carter's WW shoes, the blue eyed beauty played the DC Comics superheroine on TV in the 1970s, and Adrianne Palicki starred as Diana in a dreadful Wonder Woman pilot that was circulated among TV critics but never made it.

The Batman/Superman movie begins principal photography in the first quarter of 2014 and returns
