Gal Gadot Begins Training for Wonder Woman in ‘Batman Vs. Superman’

Ever since Gal Gadot was cast as Wonder Woman in Batman Vs. Superman, many fans have voiced their concern that the actress is too slight of frame for such a glorified comic book icon. To rest weary minds, personal trainer Mark Twight has been assigned the task of getting Gadot in shape for the role.

The actress just started her daunting daily task of transforming her body for the hugely anticipated movie. She moved back to her home country of Israel, where she is currently undergoing an intense workout program.

Mark Twight is the same trainer responsible for getting Henry Cavill, Michael Shannon and Antje Traue prepped and ready for Man of Steel.

While shooting on Batman Vs. Superman begins next month for a 2015 release date, Gal Gadot reportedly only has an extended cameo in the upcoming sequel, which will focus primarily on the relationship between Bruce Wayne and Kal-El. The actress will use her downtime to continue training, with the goal of achieving a physique that remains true to the iconic DC Comics character while still fitting into this more realistic universe. The character may not have much screen time in this follow-up to Man of Steel, but we will definitely be seeing more of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in the future.

Part of the former Miss Israel's training not only involves intense physical preparation, but also martial arts training and various forms of self-defense. Gal Gadot is a former Israeli military soldier, and already has extensive weapons and fighting training under her belt. She is a professional motorcyclist as well.

Batman News has some photos of the actress after one of her workouts. To check these out: CLICK HERE

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice comes to theaters March 25th, 2016.

            I supposed maybe the final result on film will speak for itself

                    Gal do not listen to what people say because once we see a picture you suit up as Wonder Woman after your work out they all will take their mean comments back.

                      I might be one of the very few who thinks she will be good in the role but she definitely needs to train and bulk up a bit.

                        Let's face it, it was a weird casting, but nevertheless, Gadot has experience in being in big budgeted, high-profiled summer blockbusters! She will be fine under the right direction. Plus, I'm hearing her role isn't going to be huge and maybe even shorter than ScarJo's in Iron Man 2. I have my fingers crossed being such a huge The Dark Knight Trilogy fan and also just a comic book/action movie fan! Hopefully Snyder can build and improve on what he started with the pretty solid Man of Steel. Fingers crossed...

                            We havent even seen her play Wonder Woman yet so to speculate that she will be horrible is ignorant. She might not be the one everyone wanted but I think she deserves a chance. And just because her boobs arent huge that shouldnt matter. We want someone who can act and not just be on the screen so we can stare at her boobs.

                              - Wonder Woman that's small and flat chested.

                              - An older batman

                              - A new superman

                                      I really wish they would re-cast already

                                      she just doesn't fit the character

                                        ....only just started training....? Then she is going to be hard pressed to have a physique that stands on par with that of Wonder Woman.

                                        Wait! it's Mark Twight the personal trainer (never heard of him) that is going to get her in shape. "Twight Bodies by Mark Twight".

                                        But the good news from this post is that it's "only a cameo". If she can't pull off Wonder Woman they can cut her scene or recast the character for the next movie.
