Wonder Woman 1984 may have been pushed back to 2020, but Gal Gadot’s Amazon Princess will be making a return to the big screen this year, albeit in minifigure form, as it has been announced that the Israeli actress will be lending her voice to Wonder Woman in next month’s The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part.
Gadot will be taking over the role from Cobie Smulders, who voiced the character in The LEGO Movie, and joins fellow DCEU stars Margot Robbie and Jason Momoa, who are confirmed to be reprising their roles as Harley Quinn and Aquaman respectively.
The LEGO Movie 2 is also set to feature appearances from Batman, Superman and Green Lantern, with Will Arnett, Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill returning to their respective roles from the first film. Cyborg and The Flash will also feature, but as yet there’s no word on who’ll be voicing those characters, assuming they have any dialogue in the movie, of course.
“The LEGO® Movie 2” reunites the heroes of Bricksburg in an all new action-packed adventure to save their beloved city. It’s been five years since everything was awesome and the citizens are facing a huge new threat: LEGO DUPLO® invaders from outer space, wrecking everything faster than they can rebuild.
