Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot, who is coming off of the critically acclaimed blockbuster, has had a big year and it's about to get even bigger: she is set to host Saturday Night Live for the very first time this weekend. In typical Amazon Princess fashion, the actress makes a smashing impression in the first promo released for her episode.
In the teaser, SNL mainstay Leslie Jones joins two of her co-stars as they await Gadot's arrival for rehearsal. One of them asks if they think she's anything like Wonder Woman in real life, leading to an explosive entrance by Gadot in true Wonder Woman fashion.
Gadot debuted as Wonder Woman in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice before starring in a solo film based on the character in 2017. The Wonder Woman solo film received critical acclaim and has gone on to earn over $818 million worldwide; the film is currently available on Digital HD, as well as DVD and Blu-Ray. Gadot is slated to reprise her role in Justice League and the recently announced Wonder Woman 2.
Saturday Night Live will air this Saturday, October 7th, with the episode kicking off at 11:30 PM Eastern Time/8:30 PM Pacific Time.
