Wonder Woman is an inspiring heroine to many around the world and for a variety of reasons. Actress Gal Gadot seems like a natural in her portrayal of the Amazon but doesn't focus on the role model aspect of it all.
Gadot was asked in a recent interview with EW about being looked at as a role model to a new legion of Wonder Woman fans, specifically young women. Gadot hopes the character speaks by example more than anything.
"I try not to think about being a role model; I try to be the best version of myself, period. For myself and for my daughter and for my family, friends. But I do love everything that Wonder Woman represents. She stands for love and compassion and acceptance and truth, and I think that those values are so important, especially nowadays with everything that's going on in the world. I do believe that if each and every one of us had a little bit ofWonder Woman's values, the world would be a better place."
Wonder Woman will have the chance to inspire a new era of fans later this week, and the film currently enjoys a 4.11 out of 5 on ComicBook.com's anticipation rankings. You can find the official synopsis below.
Wonder Woman hits movie theaters around the world next summer when 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.
