Gadot's representation of DC Comics' ultimate heroine in the modern amalgamation of the classic narratives of Superman and Batman embodies "a symbol of women's roles" the film's producer commented in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter.

Although Gadot has been spending plenty of time in Hollywood, she calls Tel Aviv her home, where she resides with her husband and four-year-old daughter.

The model-turned-actress is looking forward to her own Wonder Woman spinoff, as well as a role in The Justice League series.
