Her role was expanded in the sequels Fast & Furious 5 (2011) and Fast & Furious 6 (2013), in which her character was romantically linked to Han Seoul-Oh (Sung Kang). In the films, Gal performed her own stunts.

She also appeared in the films Date Night (2010) with Steve Carell and Knight and Day (2010) with Tom Cruise.

In early December 2013, it was announced that Gal had been cast as Wonder Woman in the upcoming superhero team-up film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), filming began in 2014 for a May 2016 release.

Gal Gadot is the first non-American actress to play Diana Prince/Wonder Woman and is the third actress to play her in a live-action film. Cathy Lee Crosby was the first in 1974. Lynda Carter was the second in 1975.

Director Zack Snyder said on the subject, “Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favourite in the DC Universe. Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character”.

In the Summer 2014 she filmed Criminal (2015) with Kevin Costner in Sussex, England. The movie tells the story of a killer who agrees to have the skills and memories of a dead CIA operative implanted into his brain to help him stop a dangerous conspiracy. Producers have yet to confirm a release date for the film, directed by Ariel Vromen.

In October 2014 Warner Bros announced that a Wonder Woman (2017) film spin-off starring Gal Gadot. They are currently still searching for a female direction to take on the project.

According to The Hollywood Reporter Gal Gadot is said to be in early talks to take on the female lead in Paramount and MGM’s upcoming film adaptation of Lew Wallace’s 1880 novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ (2016) . Gadot would play the part of Esther, a slave with whom Ben-Hur falls in love, if she was to sign up for the project. American Hustle actor Jack Huston is starring as Ben-Hur. Ben-Hur is forced to fight his way to freedom and vengeance, with Morgan Freeman set to play the man who trains him to become a winning chariot racer.

Gal faced a lot of criticism when first landing the role of Wonder Woman, fans thought the model/actress was too skinny for the high action iconic part, but they should remember that she did all her own stunts in the Fast & Furious films and she spent two years serving in the Israeli Defence Forces.  Gal is also a motorcycle enthusiast, and owns a black 2006 Ducati Monster-S2R!

In 2016 we will see the release of two films starring Gal Gadot, Criminal (2016) and Triple Nine (2016).
