However, once the little girl was finally in front of the actress, she starts to get overwhelmed with emotion as she begins to tear up. According to Upworthy, Gadot comforted the fan telling her “there’s no reason to cry, here we are together.”
Gadot’s cast mate Ezra Miller, aka the Flash, tried his best to comfort the little girl too. Miller complimented the teary-eyed fan telling her, “Your ability to let yourself cry is what makes you such a warrior.”
“Come join the Justice League whenever you get ready,” Miller cheerfully added. The fan’s mother, Christine Keller, appreciates the efforts and warm reception of the “Wonder Woman” cast.

Keller took to Facebook to express her gratitude saying, “What a great role model and genuine, nice person. My daughter will remember this moment for the rest of her life.”

For the teary-eyed girl who shared a moment with the “Wonder Woman”, this event will certainly leave a lasting impression for years to come. With that said, this incident shows that Gadot displays Wonder Woman’s characteristics even when she’s outside of filming.
Meanwhile, the “Wonder Woman” star might need to don her signature costume once again since a sequel has just been confirmed, according to CBS. The revelation of “Wonder Woman II” was announced during Comic-Con’s Saturday presentation.
It’s only natural for a “Wonder Woman” sequel to be announced given the massive success of the first film. After all, sources reveal that the iconic heroine’s titular film is now the summer’s highest-grossing movie.
