I guess that’s one of the many perks of scoring the role of “Wonder Woman.” If that wasn’t enough, Gal Gadot was so good at the role that the film went on to earn a 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes! Let’s face it, it’s not exactly easy climbing over the 90% mountain, so we have to give a lot of credit to the former member of the Israeli military & her decision making skills.
These latest photos are part of a shoot Gal did for the December issue of Elle and the 32-year-old actress is currently making the rounds promoting her latest film, “Justice League” in which she stars alongside other superheros played by an ensemble cast featuring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, and J.

The film, which had reportedly had a $300 million budget, revolves around Batman and Wonder Woman uniting a team consisting of themselves, Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg to honor Superman following his death.

“You’re gonna love it,” she says. “They take the temperature of the fish, cut the fish a certain way…remember Soup Nazi on Seinfeld? ‘No soup for you!’ It’s like that—they say, ‘No wasabi! No soy sauce!’ They manage your mouth.” She arches an eyebrow, snaps her chopsticks apart, and leans in. “Do not—do not—talk about this place.”
The accent is definitely working for her. Deep and exotic, it makes whatever Gadot happens to say funnier, or sadder, or sillier, or more serious, and overall extra-charming. Even more so when she transposes words or drops one from a sentence, or furrows her brow while struggling with a definition: “What does this mean, resolute?
