If you had any reservations about a former Miss Israel taking on the all-American role of Wonder Woman, lay them to rest now.
Israeli newcomer Gal Gadot recently took to Instagram to share the first official photo from the upcoming Wonder Woman flick, out 2017. From the looks of the shot, our Gal was born to wield that Lasso of Truth.

“Almost 75 years in the making… #WonderWoman is underway,” Gal captioned the photo, which shows her in a green cloak and standing in front of London’s Big Ben. A lot was left to the imagination, but Gal looks right at home as the Amazon warrior.
While her willowy beauty will look great in that Wonder Woman suit, make no mistake: this babe is lethal. After rounding off a two-year stint in the Israel Defense Forces, Gal pivoted to a career in Hollywood. She had her breakout role in The Fast and the Furious franchise, igniting the screen in four installments and doing most of her own stunts in Fast & Furious 6.
A sneak-peak shot of Gal as Wonder Woman in the upcoming Batman v Superman film caused a furor at last year's Comic Con, also revving up excitement for 2017's Wonder Woman.
If anticipation was high then, it’s at a fever pitch now.
