Wonder Woman seems to be gaining stride among the fans as she’ll be appearing in the DC Trinity with herself and the other two iconic superheroes in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. The Israeli Gal Gadot plays the Lasso of Truth-wielding character in the film and is the first woman to ever land a headline in a comic book movie. Following afterwards is Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel movie with a lead yet to be cast, according to Fox News.

Gal Gadot placed an emphasis on how young boys and girls now have an opportunity to look to a good female role model in the superhero universe and even figured it was about time.
“I am definitely pleased with the fact that we are bringing Wonder Woman back to life and I think it is such an important thing for young girls — and boys — to have a strong female role model.”
Wonder Woman is one of the iconic three of the DC Trinity and Gadot touted the character as “the perfect woman,” according to a Variety interview. That being said, it sounds like whatever actions and dialogue of which Gal has partaken seems to have impressed the beauty queen/model.
“Everything she stands for is something I can relate to. She’s very compassionate; she’s all about love and peace. She’s so strong and independent but sophisticated and with such emotional intelligence. She’s the perfect woman.”
In a recent Fandango survey reported by Deadline Hollywood, the main reason that fans are desiring to go see Batman v. Superman is because of their interest on how she’s being brought into the DC Cinematic Universe. Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman is slated for the Justice League movie, so it is understandable that the interest is there.
A featurette footage of Wonder Woman looks to support this. It showed DC Comics’ Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns explaining to Kevin Smith how not much is known of the Amazonian warrior. That people aren’t aware of Wonder Woman’s origin in the same fashion of Batman or Superman’s background.
This is likely where the draw towards the Batman v. Superman movie exists.
Wonder Woman’s accent is actually Gal Gadot’s own. An origin story tidbit mentioned by Gal, according to Variety, explains it.
“I kept my own. Wonder Woman came from an island called Themyscira where they speak hundreds of languages. She’s not American, and I was able to keep my own accent, which is kind of vague.”
She also spoke about the critical acclaim of the lack of breast size of the Batman v. Superman’s Wonder Woman. That was what many chose to scrutinize, when there are so many other wonderful aspects of the character’s nature; it was that part of the anatomy that stood out. Gadot seems to write it all off as white noise, be it either good or bad.
“You know, men. Every one of them is obsessed with breasts. Honestly, it amused me. It was funny for me that it’s such an amazing character and all they have to critique is her bust.”
Another woman in Hollywood, director of Wonder Woman, Patty Jenkins, was noted by Gal Gadot as a proper choice for helming the movie. She was touted as having a vision for her work.

Also, when Gal was asked on how she went about immersing herself in the Wonder Wonder woman role, she learned of the character being quite human, but with powers and abilities. That being said, Gadot emphasized that she would know how to play a more human role that gets into typical human situations as anyone else.
Cinema Blend reported Wonder Woman’s small amount of screen time is quite engaging and seems to demonstrate her aforementioned abilities in her performance
That said, it looks like Gal Gadot seems to be “super” at being human and being Wonder Woman which is slated to be released come June 23, 2017.
