Take our photo tour to see how the Israeli actress catapulted to superhero status.
A 'Wonder Woman' for a new generation
With her role as Wonder Woman, Gadot hopes to inspire women around the world.
"I don't want to play a damsel in distress that needs to be saved. I don't like it when women in the movies are shown as the victims," Gadot said in one interview. "I always thought that if I could send out a message, I want to show the strong side of a woman and how she can handle tough situations."
Gadot will be able to push that message even further when she appears in the Wonder Woman sequel.
