Gal Gadot has been cast as Wonder Woman in Warner Bros' superhero team-up film with Batman and Superman.

Warner Bros made the casting announcement today. Already starring in the currently untitled film are Ben Affleck as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman.

Wonder Woman inclusion in the film brings it closer to a full gathering of DC Comics' Justice League.

Gadot is an Israel-born actress and former model who competed in the 2004 Miss Universe pageant. She has starred in several of the Fast & Furious films, including Fast & Furious 6, released earlier this year.

The Batman-Superman movie is set to begin production early next year, and to be released in July 2015.
