Last month’s Comic Con trailer for “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” brought us a first look at Gal Gadot in action as DC Comics superhero Wonder Woman, the first time the character has come to the screen.

The site says that Wonder Woman will be facing famed Superman villain Doomsday in what is being called an “integral scene in the big showdown.”
The report goes on to say that Wonder Woman manages to chop off Doomsday’s hand, however he reportedly grows back a “bone blade” in place of his severed hand. It isn’t known if Batman or Superman will be a part of this action sequence as well.
Doomsday has been rumored to be involved in the film for some time, serving as the ‘muscle’ for Jesse Eisenberg’s main villain Lex Luthor.
