If you need to stop an asteroid, you call Superman. If you need to solve a mystery, you call Batman. But if you need to end a war, you call Wonder Woman.
Created during the early 20th century when women were overwhelmingly seen as better suited for the domestic life, Wonder Woman symbolised a powerful independent woman. Throughout the decades she became the first female superhero with her own comic series.
She embodied traditional values of justice, while embracing modernity by depicting a strong female character striking out on her own to save the world in the 1940s.
And what makes her more fascinating is that compared to the other DC superheros, Wonder Woman’s story and origins are connected with the real historical facts.
Forget the 1970s TV version played by Lynda Carter, Gal Gadot is bringing something completely different to the role.
Known for playing Giselle in the Fast and Furious saga, Gal Gadot has already proved to be a powerful force in the male dominated comic book universe. Amazing everyone with her performance in Batman vs Superman, she stole the show while kicking ass at the same time.
Gal Gadot plays the character as a young idealist who doesn’t understand the complexities of men and life, and we join her on a personal journey to gain all the qualities of a warrior: power, courage and wonder. Becoming the experienced, super-confident hero we see in Wonder Woman.
Looking at her life and career, you’ll find hard to believe that anyone else could be better at playing this iconic character!
Virtually indestructible, she is an expert warrior both in weapons and hand to hand combat. Her most famous weapons are the Lasso of Truth, which gives her the power to force anyone to speak the truth, two indestructible bracelets and a weaponised Tiara used as boomerang. All her powers and armaments are gifts from the Gods of the Greek Pantheon.
Originally from Israel, Gal served two years in the Israeli Defence Forces when she turned 20, as required by all residents of Israel. United Nations named Wonder Woman Honorary Ambassador for the empowerment of women, with Gal Gadot attending the ceremony and joining the battle for equal rights and fighting for more roles for women in the film industry.
