Since the day she first appeared on the comic book page, over 75 years ago, Wonder Woman has been a pillar of hope, courage, and power.
Many young women have been empowered by years of Wonder Woman comics from talented creaters, animated movies, animated television shows, and of course, the upcoming Wonder Woman solo movie.
Today, history was made as two actressess who have held the mantle of Wonder Woman with honor met each other.

Gal Gadot first appeared as Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, where she effortlessly slid into battle with Batman and Superman against the movie's big bad Doomsday.
Gadot has already finished filming the Wonder Woman solo movie, which will bring the beloved lady superhero to the big screen for the first time as a lead character. As a follow-up to BvS, she willl reprise her role in the upcoming Justice League movie as well.
