Gal Gadot is gearing up to portray one of DC Comics’ most legendary superheroes. The actress is optimistic about her role as Wonder Woman and aims to inspire “more strong female figures” in the media. As an Israeli beauty, Gadot hopes that her portrayal will empower other women and her two young daughters.
Gal Gadot shared that she took on the role of Diana Prince in Wonder Woman to inspire her two daughters and hopes that more strong female figures will emerge. According to the 32-year-old actress, she was surprised to learn that the beginnings of Wonder Woman had never been explored. She believes that girls were at a disadvantage because they didn’t have a superhero to admire, unlike boys. Gal is joined by Chris Pine in the movie as they lead the way in empowering women through their respective characters.
“Why not give it a shot?” Gal exclaimed to the Herald Sun, expressing her surprise that the origins of Wonder Woman had never been delved into before.
During an interview, Gal Gadot stated that girls were deprived of a superhero to look up to because there was no Wonder Woman origins narrative. Unlike boys who had Superman, Batman and Spider-Man, girls were short changed in this aspect. It seemed bizarre that after 75 years, we still hadn’t seen her origin story. To tackle this issue, Gal hopes that her portrayal of Wonder Woman would serve as an inspiration to her daughters Alma (6) and Maya (2 months). She firmly believes that men can learn from strong female characters on screen because empowerment requires education.
Gal, who portrays Wonder Woman in the film of the same name, hopes that her character will serve as an inspiration for her two daughters Alma, aged six and Maya, aged two months. As a mother, she expresses her delight that strong female figures are receiving more representation in media. Gal also reminisces the first time she wore the iconic costume, calling it an “out-of-body experience” where she transformed into Wonder Woman. Furthermore, Gal will reprise her role as Wonder Woman in the upcoming movie Justice League, scheduled to come out later in the year.
Gal Gadot is set to reprise her role as Wonder Woman in the highly anticipated Justice League movie, which is scheduled to hit theaters later this year.

Fans are eagerly anticipating her return to the big screen and can’t wait to see what new adventures await Wonder Woman in this latest installment.
