No word on how big of a role the Amazon will play in the film, but regardless, it's very awesome to see the DC cinematic universe will be expanding and this is a character who definitely deserves a spot on the big screen. Director Zack Snyder shared his opinion of the character.

“Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe. Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character,”

Man of Steel's sequel is scheduled to open in 2015 (tentatively set at July 17, 2015) and will be co-written by David S. Goyer and director Zack Snyder.
