While promoting Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Gal Gadot (aka Wonder Woman) shared an adorable story about her audition for the role on Ellen.

Zack calls me, saying, “I’m not sure if you have it in Israel, but did you ever hear about Wonder Woman?” Then I went dead for, like, five seconds, came back to life, and I tried to pull off my coolest voice, saying, “Pffft. Wonder Woman? Yeah. Yeah, I’ve heard of her.”

She also goes on to explain the importance of the character for women and how it could inspire them. Gadot will not only appear in the upcoming Batman v Superman but will also be the first actress in a solo Wonder Woman film.
