As the release of DC's live-action "Wonder Woman" film gets closer, the film's lead actor Gal Gadot has let the world know who she thinks is the true star of the superhero movie.
Gal Gadot gushed over director Patty Jenkins in a recent post on her Facebook page. As the cast and crew prepare for the promotional tour that precedes the film's opening, Gadot wrote that she's looking forward to re-teaming with her "sister soul."
Along with photos showing their two smiling faces and them tackling K9 hygiene, Gadot let everyone know that she was thrilled that Jenkins, director of 2003's "Monster," was chosen to helm the first female superhero tent pole film in more than a decade. Jenkins came onto the project after the departure of original director, Michelle MacLaren. Calling her "the best partner" for the "WW journey," Gadot finished her post telling everyone that she "can't wait to travel the world with you and share our work."
Opening June 2, “Wonder Woman” tells the story of the Amazon princess who, after discovering the body of American fighter pilot Steve Trevor washed ashore washed ashore on Themyscira, sets out to bring an early end to World War I. The film stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Lucy Davis, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner, Saïd Taghmaoui and David Thewlis.
