Check out the new Wonder Woman, revealed over the weekend by Zack Snyder, director of the in-the-works Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, in which she'll appear.

Actress Gal Gadot stands there strong, holding a sword, in a tight leathery costume with tall boots for kicking ass. The outfit seems to be all bronze-colored, but one tweet says that's because of a filter, offering a color version.

Seems rather tame, like a daughter of the Jolly Green Giant sporting fall colors. No magic lasso, no deflecting bullets with her Amazonian bracelets. No defiant pose holding the sword aloft.

Jessica Chabot of Nerdist News, though, gave it two thumbs up, saying, "I was very very surprised," she said. "They did an excellent job, you guys."

They better get this right, warns Scott Mendelson, blogging for Forbes.com, because, like, the fate of the whole DC movie universe, or at least the mega-success of Snyder's flick, depends on this heroine, whose potential has never been fully developed.
