Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, “I wanted to show the stronger side of women.”

In a recent interview reported by The Wrap, Israeli actress Gal Gadot spoke about her upcoming portrayal of ‘Wonder Woman’ in Zack Snyder’s superhero epic ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice’ come March 2016. The casing of Gadot, who at the time was only know for a role in three movies from the “Fast & Furious” franchise caused a massive backlash among certain fans but has seemingly won over most of her critics after a few snippets of her character in action in the much lauded trailer released during San Diego Comic Con 2015. Of how she got the role, the stunning actress said

“I told them that I wanted to be able to show the stronger side of women. I didn’t want to do the obvious role that you see in Hollywood most of the time, which is the heartbroken girl who’s waiting to be rescued by the guy, blah, blah, blah,” she said. “I wanted to do something different. Little did I know that I would land Wonder Woman not long after.”

She went on to express her excitement, as well as acknowledge the responsibility of taking on the role.

“I’m so excited about this role. I feel like I’ve been given a huge opportunity to inspire people, not only women. And not because of me but because of who Wonder Woman is and what she stands for,” Gadot added. “There’s a lot of responsibility. But I have the best team and the best people to work with. It’s going to be an amazing ride, knock on wood.”
