But with three movies in the Fast and the Furious series and with more screen time, I'm pretty sure, she has caught your attention. She played the role of Gisele Yashar, a liaison for a local drug lord named Arturo Braga in Fast and Furious 4. In Fast and Furious 5, she was recruited to become a member of Dominic Toretto's (Vin Diesel) team.  And in Fast and Furious 6, she made a dramatic scene by sacrificing her life to save her boyfriend Han (Sung Kang).

Still doesn't ring a bell?

Well, when an announcement was made in December 2013 by Warner Brothers regarding DC Entertainment's next film, the sequel to the Man of Steel movie to be directed by Zack Snyder titled Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, wherein they will feature Ben Affleck as the new Batman in replacement of Christian Bale, Henry Cavill again reprising his role as Superman and the entry of a new heroin to the movie world, the princess from the Amazons, Princess Diana of Themyscira or popularly known as Wonder Woman, to be played by Israeli model-actress Gal Gadot, that certainly caught our attention.  

When the new trailer (the second trailer) from the upcoming movie Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice came out recently, seeing for the first time Gal Gadot as Diana Prince and as Wonder Woman in action, her snippet appearances are just fan-pleasing and exhilarating.


She smashes her indestructible metal bracelets ( in the comic world it is called the Bracelets of Submission which is made of amazonium and is supposed to be magically made by the Greek Goddess Aphrodite) together and creates a somewhat explosive and powerful effect just like a shockwave.  WOW! If Fix-It Felix from Wreck It Ralph saw it, his reaction would be the same as mine... "She's one dynamite GAL!"

And just a bit of information about Gal Gadot.  She was born on April 30, 1985 in the City of Rosh HaAyin, right at the heart of Israel.  She has served at the Israeli Defense Forces for two years and is very well skilled in hand weapons and is very athletic having played basketball, volleyball and tennis.  She is also a great dancer.  She also loves driving a motorcycle.  In 2004, she won the Miss Israel beauty pageant and won, thus representing her country in the Miss Universe Beauty Pageant of 2004.  And yes guys before I forget, she is already married to an Israeli businessman named Yaron Varsano.  They were married on September 28, 2008 and they now have a daughter named Alma.  

The movie Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, is set to be shown on March 25, 2016.
