There were some rumblings of disagreement on the Internet after Gal Gadot was cast to play Wonder Woman in the new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice movie, but the Israeli actress was greeted with screams and applause when she stepped onto the stage at Comic-Con in San Diego on Saturday.
The actress joined Ben Affleck (who plays Batman) and Superman Henry Cavill to preview a 20-second sneak peek at the film, which is currently shooting.
The footage showed Batman ripping the covering off his Bat signal and powering it up. When the light hits the night sky, Superman appears, hovering with red glowing eyes. The pair then glare at each other menacingly.

Ben Affleck had better step up his gym routine because Gal Gadot, the actress cast to play Wonder Woman opposite him in the new Batman vs. Superman movie is a real-life action hero.
The Israeli actress and model, who is best known for her role as Gisele in the fourth, fifth and sixth Fast and the Furious films, said on her Facebook page, "I can't express how happy and exited I am to be part of this amazing project!"
Gadot, 28, will play the iconic Diana Prince, who has super strength, speed and agility and flies an invisible plane, in the Man of Steel sequel – which also stars Henry Cavill as Superman – due out in 2015.
Here's five things you didn't know about her.

What's this, Queen Bey as the Prince of Darkness?
Beyoncé is already practically a superhero herself – her very own Wonder Woman. But she channeled a different DC Comics character during a recent visit to a toy store.
The pop star, 31, donned a Batman mask and posed for pictures with friends, which she then posted to her website.
The singer has a thing for classic superheroes, it seems.

Adrianne Palicki knew she had big boots – and a super-sexy, skin-tight suit – to fill when she signed on for NBC's upcoming re-launch of Wonder Woman, an iconic role originated by Lynda Carter in the '70s.
But there's no rivalry. In fact, Carter has nothing but wonderful things to say about the new TV incarnation.
"I think [Palicki] looks fabulous," Carter, 59, tells E! Online. "It's a new look and, jeez, her body looks fantastic."
