‘Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world’ – Marilyn Monroe
Looks like this quote is well applicable for Hollywood actress Gal Gadot as she steps in the shoes of the popular DC comic character – Wonder Woman in the upcoming movie adaptation. When Gal Gadot made a cameo appearance as Wonder Woman in the 2016 movie – Batman VS Superman: Dawn of justice, she took my attention and I knew this girl is going to rock. The way she made her entry in the climax as Wonder Woman, I knew she was born for this role. A born warrior, Wonder Woman is a fusion of beauty and courage.
This beautiful amazon princess who is rumored to be daughter of God Zeus is brought up by her mother Hippolyta. The plans of making a stand-alone movie on Wonder Woman was in the news for several years until director Zack Snyder decided to helm the project with Gal Gadot in the lead role. There were several top notch actresses in talks to play the role of amazon princess until it went to Gal Gadot. Even top names like Angelina Jolie, Megan Fox,Catherine Zeta Jones and Priyanka Chopra were considered for this role. I guess the lady luck was in favor of Gal Gadot. Gal Gadot’s energetic presence gives an edge to her role as Wonder Woman. I had the same gut feeling about Christian Bale when I saw him for the first time in the Batman Begins promotional poster. I knew he was born to portray the dark knight with conviction.
Also known as Princess Diana of Themyscira, this warrior goddess rescues an American military pilot Steve Trevor and joins hands with the pilot to stop the world war. Though Wonder Woman may be a fiction super heroine/warrior goddess, the inspiration of creating this character is drawn immensely from Indian mythology.
Before Wonder Woman made her appearance in the comics’ world, Indian mythology already had Devi Durga, the supreme Goddess who took various avatars to destroy the demonic race. Thus the roots and origin of Wonder Woman is hidden in the books of Hindu mythology. With a lasso, sword and shield as her weapon Gal Gadot will be seen stopping the world war in the 2017 as the bold and beautiful ‘Wonder Woman’.
Gal Gadot will be seen portraying Wonder Woman again in Justice League which is scheduled to release in November 2017. DC is all set to release the 2017’s most awaited super hero movie – Wonder Woman in June 2017. The big screen is ready for the arrival of Wonder Woman worldwide.
