The iconic superheroine, played by the gorgeous Israeli actress, recently made waves in the cinemas earning both box office and critical success. Gadot is set to reprise her role in November for DCEU’s “Justice League”.

In October last year, he turned heads at the 29th Tokyo International Film Festival when he showed up at the red carpet looking exactly like Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie.
