"This I can say is a 'dream coming true' situation. It's exhilarating to be a part of such a larger than life character film where you get to play your dream role. I have always dreamt of playing such a character and idolised it," Soundarya said in a statement to IANS.
Details of her role are kept under wraps. She is expected to start shooting for it by October end.
Directed by Patty Jenkins, the film also stars Chris Pine. The Wonder Woman sequel will hit the screens in 2019.
