Gal Godot: ‘It’s impossible not to be a little nervous’ about playing Wonder Woman

Gal Gadot walked into her casting session with director Zack Snyder with no idea she was auditioning to play an icon. “I knew [the role] was big and it was for one of the franchises,” the 30-year-old Israeli actress says. After she read a scene from Pulp Fiction, the director let her in on the secret. “He said, ‘Well, I don’t know how big she is in Israel…’ and my jaw just dropped. There are so many expectations for this character, it’s impossible not to
 be a little nervous about it.”

Wonder Woman

Since the release of Iron Man in 2008, there have been more than 20 mainstream comic-book adaptations with a man in the title role. The number with women? Exactly zero, a statistic 
that will remain unchanged until the 2017 release of Wonder Woman, with Gadot carrying the golden lasso. Audiences will get their first glimpse of her in action as the Amazonian warrior in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. “She plays a super-important part,” Snyder says. “In a lot of ways, she’s the gateway drug to 
the rest of the 
Justice League.”
