Gal Gadot was over the moon when she found out that she had been cast as Wonder Woman in the upcoming movie, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. The actress was especially excited because she knew that her daughter, Alma, would be inspired by the strong and independent superhero. During an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Gal revealed that Alma preferred superheroes to traditional fairy tale princesses. In fact, she often dismissed princesses as doing “nothing” while the prince did all the work. Gal was thrilled that her daughter could look up to a character like Wonder Woman instead.
