Wonder Woman is getting a new day job in Batman v Superman

Although she may not be headlining the movie, one character fans are desperate to see in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (opens in new tab) is Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman. We've only seen about 20 seconds worth of the character in the various trailers for the superhero blockbuster, but Zack Snyder has confirmed that her role is "bigger than a cameo (opens in new tab)".

A new toy figure has given us some more information about Wonder Woman, with the character blurb revealing what she gets up to when she's out of costume: "The immortal Amazonian Princess Diana keeps her eyes and ears open for intrigue as the beautiful and mysterious antiquities dealer, Diana Prince."

Check out the picture proof below...

Being an antiquities dealer is certainly not the worst day job, and as this version of Wonder Woman is 5000 years old (opens in new tab) she is uniquely qualified. How her job brings her into contact with the titular superheroes or their alter-egos remains to be revealed; could she be the reason Batman and Superman stop fighting one another and team-up? In any case, it's going to be fun watching DC's trinity - and, very soon, the Justice League - interact on the big screen.

Directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Diane Lane, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Laurence Fishburne and Amy Adams, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will arrive in UK and US cinemas on March 25, 2016.
