Who Plays Wonder Woman? Meet Gal Gadot from 'Batman v Superman'!
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice blasts into theaters tonight (March 24) with special preview screenings and fans will be getting their first glimpse at Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman!
While some people might recognize Gal from her work in the Fast & Furious franchise, this is without a doubt her big break, so let’s take a moment to get to know her.
The 30-year-old actress grew up in Israel, where just like her Wonder Woman character, she was a real-life warrior. Gal served for two years in the Israel Defense Forces and has a background in military training.
Gal has been married to husband Yaron Versano since 2008 and they have a four-year-old daughter named Alma.
Next up for Gal is the stand-alone Wonder Woman movie, which has a release date set for June 23, 2017. The character will also appear in the upcoming Justice League movies. She will be taking a break from the superhero action for her comedy Keeping Up with the Joneses, in which she stars opposite Jon Hamm and Isla Fisher.
If you need an introduction into the Wonder Woman character, she is a warrior princess of the Amazons and sometimes known by her secret identity Diana Prince when not in her homeland. Lynda Carter most famously played the role in a television series in the 1970s and attempts to revive the character have failed until now. We’re excited to see Wonder Woman on screen again finally!
