The journey that led Gal Gadot to become an international sensation as the iconic character Wonder Woman is a fascinating one. She initially gained recognition by winning the Miss Israel title at the young age of 18, thanks to her striking appearance and intelligence. It’s possible that her time in the Israel Defense Forces also contributed to her comfort with handling weapons in movies such as The Fast and the Furious franchise. Even before she entered the film industry, she was already making headlines, having been featured in Maxim magazine’s 2007 issue on the Women of the Israel Defense Forces. In addition to her military service, she pursued higher education in law and international relations while also modeling for well-known Israeli fashion brands. However, she eventually abandoned her studies to pursue acting in Hollywood, and it was her portrayal of Wonder Woman in the 2017 stand-alone film that truly propelled her career forward. Although the film broke records and grossed over $820 million worldwide, it was later surpassed by Black Panther. Fans are eagerly anticipating the release of Wonder Woman II to see if it will regain its place as the top-selling superhero film.
