Gal Gadot, who played the iconic character of Wonder Woman, has recently disclosed that the inspiration behind her portrayal of the powerful female superhero is none other than the beloved princess Diana.
According to Gal Gadot, her portrayal of Wonder Woman was influenced by the late Princess Diana. The actress, known for her role as the female superhero in two standalone films, claimed to have been inspired by Diana’s compassion towards others. Speaking at Vanity Fair’s Cocktail Hour Live! event, Gadot mentioned watching a documentary about the people’s princess and being struck by how she always cared for those around her. Drawing from this, Gadot wanted her character, named Diana Prince, to be relatable to fans by showing her vulnerabilities and heart.
Gal Gadot, who has portrayed Wonder Woman in two standalone movies, aimed to bring a relatable and human element to the iconic superhero character. She wanted to showcase both the vulnerabilities and the heart of a goddess who is portrayed as being super strong and perfect in every way.

With the announcement of a third Wonder Woman film by Warner Bros just after Christmas Day 2020, fans can look forward to seeing more of Gadot’s interpretation of this beloved character.
