Wonder Woman is a superhero who grew up among the Amazonians in a hidden island paradise called Themyscira. She is lured into the man’s world when a dashing American pilot Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) crashes on the island while fleeing the German forces. Using her inherent powers as an Amazon, she becomes a superhero and the protector of the world alongside the rest of the Justice League.
While Gadot’s performance in the role has been praised, some of the films she has essayed the character in, like ‘Batman v Superman’ and ‘Wonder Woman 1984’, did not impress critics.
