Gal Gadot, the 31-year old former combat trainer in the Israeli army, is in the middle of reprising her role as Diana Prince, a.k.a. Wonder Woman. It’s the second time she dons the Amazonian warrior’s skimpy armor, but this time rather than as a bit player in the larger ensemble of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice she will headline the comic book hero’s first solo movie in her 75-year history. So to say there is a lot riding on Gadot’s impressively muscular shoulders is an understatement. But none of that seems to phase the generous, even-keeled actress director Patty Jenkins calls “the natural spirit of Wonder Woman.”

Even during a blustery shoot in March at Leavesden Studios, located on the outskirts of London, the actress doesn’t seem fazed by the extremely frigid conditions she must perform in. Rather, during a break in the physically daunting production, Gadot sits down in front of a heater with a black cape draped over her costume to chat about the thrills and challenges of playing the ultimate feminist icon.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What did it feel like the first time you put the Wonder Woman costume on?
GAL GADOT: I tried it the first time after they cast me for Batman v Superman for Wonder Woman. It was over the top for me. They told me I got the part and two days later I found myself in Michigan, in the cold, again, doing the fittings for the suit and it was overwhelming. It felt like this beautiful dream. And it was very exciting and I was very, very happy and it felt right. It felt like even with the surrealness of it, it felt normal.

Is that because you connected so much to this character?
I love her. I do.

Why?
I feel like Diana is really accessible. It’s very easy to relate to her. She has the heart of a human so she can be emotional, she’s curious, she’s compassionate, she loves people. And then she has the powers of a goddess. She’s all for good, she fights for good, she believes in great. I want to be her. And in Wonder Woman, she has this naiveté in her. It isn’t stupid, it’s magical. I would want to be naïve like that again.

And that naiveté stems from her upbringing?
She’s a young idealist who’s been taught that the world is very simple: it’s black or white, bad or good. It’s how she was raised. It’s what she believes in and there is something charming about the simplistic way in which she sees the world. But once she falls in love and starts her journey with Steven Trevor (Chris Pine), he educates her about the complexity of mankind. There is no such thing as only good and bad, black or white. It’s complicated.

How important was it for you that a woman direct this movie?
I think it’s important. It’s a story about a girl becoming a woman. I think only a woman, who has been a girl, can be able to tell the story in the right way.

How do you describe your collaboration with director Patty Jenkins?
All my life I’ve been working with male directors which I’ve really enjoyed. And I’m lucky in that I’ve worked with men who have a lot of respect for women. But working with a woman is a different experience. It feels like the communication is different. We talk about emotions. With Patty, it’s a thing now, we communicate with our eyes. She doesn’t need to say a thing. If I’m hurt, she feels the pain. It’s a whole different connection that I have with her. She’s also brilliant, she’s bright, she’s fierce, she’s sharp. She knows exactly what she wants Wonder Woman to be.

For a long time, people didn’t know how to approach the story. When Patty and I had our creative conversations about the character, we realized that Diana can still be a normal woman, one with very high values, but still a woman. She can be sensitive. She is smart and independent and emotional. She can be confused. She can lose her confidence. She can have confidence. She is everything. She has a human heart.

This has been quite a physical undertaking for you as well. What can you do now physically that you couldn’t do before you started training for the part?
I’ve been very active all my life. I was a combat instructor in the Israeli Army. [Laughs] See, everything [in my life] has led to me being Wonder Woman. I gained a lot of body mass after I was first cast in the role. I danced for 12 years and I played a lot team sports: basketball, volleyball. But now I lift a lot of weights. That’s new. I feel much stronger then I was. I feel it on my posture and the way I hold my body. I feel good. I started out very, very skinny and because I gained body mass, I really enjoy the way my body looks… better then I did before. I enjoy the curves. I enjoy the strength, the back, the guns. Now I’m aware of my muscles. And I like it.

Does this undertaking feel like a big responsibility?
It is a big responsibility. We knew we wanted to tell a story that would inspire people: women, men, boys, and girls. And we didn’t want to just show a generic story of a superhero coming of age. We wanted her to be full and whole. This is the first time we are telling this story and I feel like for so many boys, they have great role models to work with. They have Superman and Batman and Spiderman and the list goes on and on. And they are strong and almighty and they are positive and active and proactive.

For girls, I just had a conversation with my daughter, Alma, and she was saying something about the prince she saw in Sleeping Beauty and she was saying he’s brave and he’s strong. And I said what about the princess and she said, she’s weak. And I said, what do you think of that. And she’s 4, my daughter. And she said, she shouldn’t be weak. And I said why do you think she’s weak, and she said, she’s sleeping the entire movie and the prince comes and kisses her and saves her. She didn’t do anything.

I feel that I’ve got the opportunity to set a great role model for girls to look up to a strong, active, compassionate, loving, positive woman and I think it’s so important. It’s about time that somebody will do that and I’m very privileged and honored to be the one.

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice contained a fair amount of easter eggs in addition to all of its world building elements.
Justice League will at least be heavy on one of those as the producers have said the film will include its share of cameos and easter eggs for eagle-eyed fans to catch.
During a recent set visit, ComicBook.com’s Brandon Davis was on hand when Producers Deborah Snyder and Charles Roven were asked if we would “see more associates from The Flash, Iris West or something like that?”
They were hesitant to confirm any details, but they did confirm Justice League will have some cameos and fun drop-ins for fans.

Roven:  Again …

Snyder: There might be some cameos of people. You know. We kind of like to do that so we’ll see.

Roven: We do like them and to put Easter eggs in these movies and so…”

Teases from Batman v. Superman will also be expounded upon, such as the Mother Box. It was briefly referenced in BVS, but will play a much bigger role in Justice League. The same goes for the Parademons, who were seen in the dream sequence in BVS, and while they might not look exactly the same in Justice League, they will still play a part in the film.

During a recent interview with Sci Fi Now, Wonder Woman lead actress Gal Gadot revealed that the film is a “coming of age” story for the heroine — which kind of makes sense when you consider that it’s both an origin story and set a century before Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

“In Batman V Superman, you are being introduced to a very experienced, dark Wonder Woman,” Gadot said. “She has been around for a while. Something happened 100 years ago that made her not want to be involved in a man’s world. However, we are going to tell the entire coming of age story of Diana. We’re going to see how she becomes Wonder Woman. She is very different to the Diana that you see in [Dawn Of Justice]. She is more naïve and she’s purer. She is a young idealist who does not yet understand the complexities of life.”
“I think that the heart of the movie is about the coming of age of Diana,” she added. “Diana is so passionate about life and she is so passionate about love and truth and justice – and she is very inspiring, even to me. One of the reasons why Patty Jenkins agreed to do this movie was because of the core story. The action is fantastic. You will have action – but we have a very, very solid story to tell.”

The film recently wrapped production and is due in theaters next year.

Gal Gadot was not only thrilled to have landed the coveted role of Wonder Woman in the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice film, but she was excited to play a character that her daughter Alma can look up to. The Israeli actress told Ellen DeGeneres that her daughter is more inspired by the strong independent superheroes than by traditional fairytale princesses.

Talking to the chat show host the 30-year-old revealed that her four-year-old daughter is very dismissive of storybook princesses, telling her mother, “The prince is always so brave and courageous and strong [but the princesses] always fall asleep and then the prince is the one to wake them up, and they do nothing.”

“It made feel really good about playing Wonder Woman,” she said. “Boys have always had Batman and Superman and Spider-Man.”

“Yes it’s really important to have that role model,” agreed Ellen. “Now we have Supergirl on television and Wonder Woman and we have to keep putting those role models out there.”

The Fast and the Furious actress also talked about her “super-confidential” audition for the role, saying that she wasn’t told the part she was trying out for at the initial audition. When it was finally revealed that she was in the running for the character of Wonder Woman the star could hardly contain her excitement, but tried to play it cool to director Zack Snyder.

Similarly when Gal found out she had secured the role, she was on a flight full of people, but was still not allowed to tell anyone about the job. “I couldn’t say anything,” but “now I feel like the luckiest girl in the world.”

When Gal Gadot was first revealed as the new Wonder Woman, a healthy percentage of the comic and geek community reacted the same way. She was too skinny, didn’t have enough muscle, and all in all, wasn’t the right gal. You can’t blame them for the assessment, Gadot is attractive and in shape, but as the words of Shakira echoed from the far reaches of 2006, her hips didn’t lie. While many minds have been swayed since, the verdict is still out for some as to whether the right woman was chosen to portray Diana Prince, warrior princess of the Amazons. I myself remained skeptical until I started to read more about the awesomeness that is Gal Gadot.

The beauty took a path that boggles the mind when you lay it out on paper. First she won a pageant, then joined the military, then became a model, which led to her becoming an actress. For any doubters, this list is for you. Gal Gadot is a woman who can, and has, done everything. While she’s not the hero we initially hoped for, I’m convinced she’s the hero we deserve.

Cliche Dark Knight references aside, Gadot is 29 years old, is married and has one daughter. She’s been modeling and acting for the last decade, and she’s steadily grown more famous as she’s gone on. In short, she’s kind of a big deal, but she’s still mostly an unknown to many comic book fans. So, here are 12 things you need to know about your new Wonder Woman…

1. She Served Two Years In The Israeli Defense Forces
2. She Loves Motorcycles
3. She Owns A Swanky Hotel With Her Husband
4. She Was Almost A Bond Girl
5. She Beat Out Olga Kurylenko For the Role Of Wonder Woman
6. She Isn’t Concerned About What You Think Wonder Woman Should Look Like
7. She’s Signed On For Three Movies
8. She’s Really Goofy And Adorable
9. She Wants more Female Superheroes
10. She Didn’t Know She Was Auditioning For Wonder Woman
11. Wonder Woman Will Be Different In Her Solo Movie Than In Batman V Superman
12. She Is The First Non American To Portray Wonder Woman
