Wonder Woman exceeded expectations and broke records when it premiered last month. In the process, it has garnered fans all across the pop culture landscape - including one of the most notable actresses to portray a female superhero.
Halle Berry, who played Ororo Munroe/Storm in four X-Men films, as well as the title character in 2004's Catwoman, recently praised the film during an interview with Yahoo Movies. While promoting her most recent venture into comic book-based media, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Berry exclaimed that she is officially a superfan of Wonder Woman's star, Gal Gadot.
"I’m like Gal Gadot‘s biggest fan right now." Berry revealed. "I was so proud of that movie and proud of her. And what that [movie] has done for women, it’s palpable to me. Every woman I know is like 'Have you seen Wonder Woman?' It's the first thing out of their mouths."
While Berry's solo run as a DC Comics character was poorly received, the actress championed Wonder Woman's success - and what it means for female-led superhero movies going forward.
"It was beautifully done and well shot," Berry continued, "and Gal is the perfect representation right now for that kind of superpower."
Wonder Woman currently enjoys an 84.78 on ComicBook.com's anticipation rankings, and you can find the description below.
Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action-adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
