Posting to the social media website Vero, Snyder wrote a single word: "Proud."
Snyder cast Gadot as Wonder Woman for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice where Gadot debuted in the role. Snyder seems heartened to see the actress he cast in the role take the lead in a film that has become such an instant, record-breaking success.
Snyder reteamed with Gadot for Justice League, which will release in November. Snyder had to step down from post-production on Justice League to deal with a family tragedy, with Joss Whedon stepping in to film reshoots and see the film through to completion.
