Gal Gadot’s upcoming movie Wonder Woman is expected to hit theaters in 2017. The coveted role is a dream come true for the 31-year-old Israeli actress.
Gadot first appeared as Wonder Woman in the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice movie. She will also reprise the role for Justice League Part One and Justice League Part Two, which will be released for 2017 and 2019.
Now she’s set to take the lead, and Gal Gadot in Wonder Woman is a sight to behold!
When Zack Snyder initially cast Gadot as Amazonian princess Diana Prince, many criticized the choice, saying the former model was far too skinny and not athletic enough for the role.
Those eager to see Gal Gadot gain weight for Wonder Woman won’t be disappointed. The 5’10 Gadot reportedly gained 50 pounds of weight and muscle mass to fill out her thin frame. Gadot embraces her newfound figure, curves, muscles, and strength.
The stunning actress says she has zero time between movies, and constantly follows her weight-gain diet and fitness plan to prepare for next year’s films.
Determined as ever, she enjoys her Wonder Woman workout, especially a boxing exercise that keeps her physically fit for the fight scenes in the movies. Check out her muscles in this Twitter pic from earlier this month:
