(Relaxnews) – Director Zack Snyder unveiled the first photo of the female superhero as portrayed by Israeli actress Gal Gadot in the upcoming movie “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.” A few images from the teaser screened at San Diego’s Comic-Con have also made their way to the web.

The buzz is building around Zack Snyder’s next superhero epic, despite the long wait until its US release on May 6, 2016.

On the heels of a somber close-up of Ben Affleck wearing the Batman mask, the “Batman V Superman” director tweeted the first image of Israeli actress and model Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Dressed in black, the fierce superhero poses in front of a volcanic landscape holding not a whip but a small sword.

A small group of fans lucky enough to be on site in San Diego at Comic-Con even got to see the first footage from this upcoming sequel to “Man of Steel.” A few copies of the video were briefly leaked on the internet, showing Batman with glowing eyes sending out the Bat Signal across the rainy night sky, followed by Superman with glowing red eyes standing in its shadow, all to the cheers of a very enthusiastic crowd.
