Israeli It girl Gal Gadot, AKA the hottie from “The Fast and the Furious,” has a new title: Wonder Woman. She will play the Amazonian princess warrior in the new untitled Batman-Superman pic, Variety reported Wednesday night.

The mega Justice League flick, which will star Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill and open in July 2015, is being directed by Zack Snyder, the man behind “Man of Steel.”

Gadot beat out Elodie Yung (“G.I. Joe: Retaliation”) and Olga Kurylenko (“Quantum of Solace”), who also appeared on a shortlist for the role of Diana Prince, AKA Wonder Woman.

Gadot, 28, a former beauty queen who was crowned Miss Israel in 2004, was born in Rosh HaAyin and is also a successful model.

She first got international attention when she appeared in a 2007 photo shoot for Maxim magazine focused on the sexy female soldiers of the IDF.
