“How can you connect to a goddess that’s super strong and has it all and [is] super perfect?” she reportedly continued. “I wanted to show her vulnerabilities and heart.”

“Everything about Wonder Woman, I [also] believe in,” Gadot told the outlet. “She’s all about love and peace and hope and compassion and empathy and bringing people together.”
