Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman

In May, Justice League star Gal Gadot mentioned that she almost quit acting prior to director Zack Snyder casting her as Wonder Woman. Now, she has revealed her reaction to finding out she got the part.

The footage comes from Comic-Con International in San Diego, which was held in July. When asked what she was doing when she found out she'd been cast as Wonder Woman, Gadot responded, "I was sitting in an airplane, just landed, and then I got the call, and then I started screaming in the middle of the airplane while I was still buckled up." The clip then shows footage of Wonder Woman from the upcoming Justice League film.
