Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman has been one of the biggest topics of discussion around Batman vs Superman.

From the obvious questions such as: "Was she right for the role?" and "What would her costume look like?" To smaller issues like: "What does Ronda Rousey think about her casting?" And "Would Olga Kurylenko have been a better choice?"

There is one thing that all of these questions seem to miss, however, and that is:

What part will Wonder Woman play in the Batman vs Superman plot?

Let's go through what we know so far. First off, it seems pretty certain at this point that in Ben Affleck we will see an older Bruce Wayne even than the battered Batman we saw in Christopher Nolan's [The Dark Knight Rises](movie:39011). Reportedly, Batman will have been retired for some time. If he is considering a return to action, it is only in response to the destructive events of the Man Of Steel.

Which means, of course, that Batman will not be introduced to the new DC cinematic universe through an origins story - and neither, according to reports, will Wonder Woman.

Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman, the rumors say, may well be working in some capacity for LexCorp, the multinational corporation headed by Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg). No one will know her as [Wonder Woman](movie:45787), however, as she will be in her alter ego, Diana Prince. She will already know of her powers, however, and when she reveals herself as Wonder Woman she will be at 100%.

Whether she believes Lex Luthor is a good guy, though, or is working as a double agent, is still unclear.

Amy Adams' Lois Lane: Conflict With Wonder Woman?

Another person who will be investigating Lex Luthor (and possibly Bruce Wayne, too) is Lois Lane. Lois, who we recently saw in some leaked photos from the Batman vs Superman set, is believed to be known to be dating Superman.

When asked whether the movie would see her come into conflict with Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman in a possible love triangle, Lois Lane actress Amy Adams said:

I hope that I can be involved with a woman on screen where we're not in a love triangle. That would be fun. Maybe where we team up together and we work as teammates instead of adversaries.

If Lois Lane is investigating LexCorp, though, and Diana Prince is working there undercover, conflict seems a distinct possibility.

The Justice League - When Will It Be Formed?

The main Batman vs Superman plot rumor going around at the moment involves LexCorp's preservation of the corpse of General Zod, who Superman defeated in [Man of Steel](movie:15593).

Allegedly, Lex Luthor is using tissue from the corpse to create legendary DC villain Doomsday. Could this be the motivation for the trinity of Wonder Woman, Batman and Superman to unite and fight together, instead of against each other? Only time - and a [Justice League](movie:401267) movie - will tell!

But how do you think Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman will be involved in the plot of Batman vs Superman? Working for Lex Luthor? Involved romantically with Superman or Batman? Write in with your thoughts below the line!
