Gal Gadot Plastic Surgery Rumors Addressed – Before and After Pictures
The famous Israeli actress and model, Gal Gadot, who is better recognized as ‘Wonder Woman’ has been linked with rumors of going under the knife and having three plastic surgeries done to enhance her body.
Gadot has always denied the rumors of having any plastic surgeries and says that there is no need for her to have them. Here are the surgeries she has been rumored to do:
Gal Gadot Before & After
The mother of Maya Versano and Alma Versano has transformed quite a bit when it comes to her nose. There has also been a slight alteration in the size of her breasts but it hasn’t had much bigger increment at all. Here is a before and after picture of her where we can see some noticeable differences in her nose:

As we can clearly see in the picture given above, the beautiful actress has had some obvious changes in her nose.
Nose Job Rumor
Yaro Varsano’s wife Gal Gadot has been rumored for a long time that she went under the knife and got her nose modified a bot according to her desire. It is because her nose used to have some freckles and was a bit lifted before. But at present, it has been shifted a little bit downwards giving her thickness and perfect appearance.
The alteration in Gal’s nose provides strong hint in thinking that she had her nose modified through cosmetic surgeries. However, the freckles must have been hidden through make-up as well but the nose’s shifting downwards is definitely worth pointing out.
Breasts Job Speculations
There have been a lot of speculations and rumors about Gal Gadot having breasts job when she was about to portray the role of ‘Wonder Woman’ in the fantasy movie ‘Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice’.
People said that her breasts were too small to exactly match the character of the comic book she was playing. In return, she answered that she was representing Wonder Woman of new generation and it didn’t matter her much.

But as the rumors kept spreading, critics also said that the actress’ breasts actually appeared a bit larger than before. They said that she opted for the surgery following people’s thought regarding her small breasts.
However, when asked to Gal herself, she stated that she hasn’t had any plastic surgeries done in her body. It might have been the push up bra that the actress wore while fans noticed. The breasts job rumors doesn’t seem to true at all.
Gal Gadot has also been facing some allegations of having Botox on her face as her face looks flawless and just gorgeous. Her face also appears somehow tightened and a bit tucked but that doesn’t necessarily mean she had the cosmetic injections on her face. It might be proper diet and the way she managed her fitness resulting in the perfect face structure of her.

It’s going to be a wonderful year for Gal Gadot!
Gal sat down with “Extra’s” Nate Burleson, opening up about the “Wonder Woman” sequel, “Wonder Woman 1984,” one of the most anticipated movies of 2020.
The movie is not out until June 5, but the trailer is already making fans’ heads spin. Of what they can expect, Gal teased, “In this one, she’s been around. She’s much wiser and mature and lonely… And then something crazy happens that changes the whole game.”
Being a superhero is hard work — Gal is always working on staying in shape. Her go-to workout? “I had a long period of time being really hard and strong on Pilates, but now I’m back to the gym and I’m back to L.A., so I have time to do the hikes, the beautiful L.A. hikes, and swim.”
Nate asked, “What’s your secret for balancing a busy career, equally as busy household, being a wife and a mother to two beautiful daughters?” Gal answered, “I just try to find time to create time for myself and for me with my family and to do the simple things that really help you to be grounded… But it’s great. I wouldn’t have it any other way, but I always aspire to find this balance.”
Gal Gadot: I often stop and say to myself, ‘Wow, it’s real’
LOS ANGELES—It’s too early in the morning outside Warner Bros. Studios, but as a city which has built its reputation on impersonation, everyone around me is smiling, energetic and satisfied like in the opening number of La La Land. Soon, if I’m not careful, someone might break into a song and a step dance right next to me.

I try to understand if it’s the Botox that has put everyone’s smile on pause, but why be petty. If you can’t beat them, according to a famous LA saying which I just made up, simply try to fake it like with them.
A frantic producer directs the convoy of journalists to the coffee stand—a polite name for a high-calorie buffet comprised of everything that will destroy your diet: Sweet pastries, salty pastries, trans fats. A journalist on a full stomach, every novice publicist knows, is a more generous journalist. The first “Wonder Woman” press conference is being held here today. Seventy-six years after she was born in comic books, the iconic superhero has finally made it to the big screen as a leading character.
Gadot in Hollywood. ‘I just gave everything I had’ (Photo: Brian Bowen Smith)
It’s hard to miss the bustle around us. This is probably Warner Studios and DC Comics’ most important film, certainly this summer. More than $150 million were invested in the movie and some of the most famous names in Hollywood were enlisted. It was produced by Zack Snyder, who directed Batman v Superman; directed by Patty Jenkins, whose film Monster won Charlize Theron an Oscar; and alongside stars like Chris Pine, Robin Wright and Danny Huston, all eyes are on one particular person. Her name is Gal Gadot, and the last time we met, about two years ago, she didn’t have such a huge entourage trailing behind her.
I scroll through my last correspondence with Gadot, after that interview was published. When she wrote, “Thank you very much,” I replied that we would conduct the next interview in LA. She immediately texted back: “It’s a deal.” Well, it turns out that Gadot is not just a superhero, but also a woman who keeps her word.
In ‘Wonder Woman’ (2017). She’ll soon play the role for the third time in ‘Justice League’
I stand outside the studio, under a Wonder Woman parasol, nibbling on a Wonder Woman-shaped muffin, licking a lollypop shaped as Wonder Woman’s sword, and waiting for Gadot, along with dozens of other journalists from all over the world. You see, I must find out how the most famous woman in Hollywood feels right now, with a poster of her the size of a department store spread across Times Square.
The answer arrives earlier than expected. One of the publicists updates me that Gadot will be interviewed standing up. Her back, it turns out, couldn’t take the burden and is making it difficult for her to sit down. Since last week, she has been giving all her important interviews standing up. “If I had time,” she will tell me later once we’re alone, “I would have gone to a chiropractor a long time ago, but you can see where I’m at.”
The publicist leads me to Gadot through a huge compound built especially for the film’s promotion. It’s a merchandise monster with a million photos—and I’m not exaggerating—of Gadot. I don’t know a lot about the craze, but for the first time I think I’m starting to understand how people lose it in Hollywood. If the past two years were not enough, the past week has given Gadot a good reason to be joyful: After two years of teasing, the film was finally screened to journalists and fans, and although the “media embargo” had yet to be lifted, the viewers were permitted to share what they thought about Wonder Woman’s performance.
“It had humor and heart,” wrote IndieWire’s film editor, Kate Erbland. The Collider website’s editor-in-chief, Steve Weintraub, was happy to report that “’Wonder Woman’ is a blast and Gal Gadot is fantastic. Her chemistry with Chris Pine is magnetic.” Courtney Howard, another film critic, added: “Exciting, powerful, bold, epic, simply wonderful and—best of all—absolutely empowering.” Mark Ryan, senior entertainment writer at Uproxx, tweeted: “She reminds me of Christopher Reeve’s Superman: True north superhero with no angst or cynicism, which is needed right now.”
As Kika in Israeli TV series ‘Asfur’ (2011) I sit in front of the spot where Gadot is giving her interviews and watch her for a long time. Her relaxed body language fails to disclose whether she even realizes what is going on around her, whether she understands the extent of the madness.
The last time I interviewed her, Gadot was just informed that she had won the role and was about to start shooting Batman v Superman. I asked her at the time if she understood the magnitude of the achievement, and she shook her head and said: “I don’t think you can understand it in real time. I’m living by delay; come interview me a year from now, and then I’ll tell you if understood it or not.”
So I came.
“I’m still processing this experience,” she laughs. “I’m starting to understand. It’s funny, because since being cast as Wonder Woman I’ve had almost three years to let it sink in. Because it was such a closed, secret project, in which we moved from one film to another—from ‘Batman v Superman’ to ‘Wonder Woman’ to ‘Justice League’—I feel that it is only from this point in time that I should be given time to process everything. I assume that in two years’ time, I’ll understand what I went through. We are just starting to share this film with the world. Up until now, we were only working on it. Up until now, it was just the preview. We cooked this thing, we worked on it, we cleaned and polished it for this moment.”
When was the last time you pinched yourself and said, ‘I can’t believe this is really happening?’
“Every day, every morning. In recent days, with the reviews published last week, I have been pinching myself a lot. I don’t have blue marks on my hand yet, but I often stop and say to myself: ‘Wow, it’s real.’
“It’s a surreal feeling. I don’t really think you can digest it. I said to my husband, Yaron: ‘One the one hand, I feel that I’m here, that I’m completely present, that I understand what’s going on and that I’m really excited when people talk about the film. But on the other hand, I’m numb. It’s like, wait a second, is this really happening?’”
Yes, it really is happening.
“On a personal level, at the end of the day I go back home, with my back strain, to my two daughters and my husband. And if I’m lucky, at the end of the day I also have time left for a chiropractor. Do you understand the beauty in this? It’s the contradictions of life that give you the balance.” As Yamit in the Israeli TV mini-series ‘Katmandu’ (2012) I don’t want to put more pressure on your back, but aren’t you stressed out by the fact that a film that’s largely carried by you is about to be released?
“I’m not even thinking about it.”
So am I the first person who tells you that? “Yes! Totally!” she laughs. “Thanks a lot for coming all the way from Israel to tell me that. You could have brought hummus, but an anxiety attack?! Seriously, you’re not stressing me out. I’m really not thinking about it. Films are something that comes and goes. Now we’re around that, so it’s clear that it’s big and powerful, around this character, but the truth is that I just hope people go to this film and like it.” Still, you’re the face of the film. All eyes are on you. “Are you really trying to give me an anxiety attack?” So have I watched too much of ‘Entourage’? This pressure before a film debut doesn’t actually exist? “I haven’t watched the whole ‘Entourage’ series. But look, films that I participated in have been released before. Granted, it wasn’t in the same magnitude as Wonder Woman, but they were big and I was part of them. Always, before any new film was released, I was told: ‘Look, everything is going to change.’ And then later, ‘Now! Wait, wait, now everything is going to change.’ It’s always the same in the end.”
No small talk
One never gets tired of telling the story of Gadot’s rise to the top: The good girl from Rosh Ha’ayin, who actually thought of becoming a lawyer, became Miss Israel, found herself in a key role among the macho gang of the Fast and the Furious, searched for her place in Hollywood, and a moment before giving up, was cast as Wonder Woman in DC Comics’ ambitious project—first alongside Batman and Superman, at present in a huge summer film without a single second on screen without her, and later this year in another film in the series alongside Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill—”Justice League.”
She may have turned down the chance to become a James Bond girl in the 2006 film, “Quantum of Solace,” but at the moment Gal Gadot is not just the most courted It Girl in the world, she is also the most encouraging lesson for every Israeli who wants to try his or her luck in this tough business: Don’t listen to other people’s advice; listen to yourself.
“Even at the beginning, when I was told that in order to move up I would have to do all kinds of things—meet people, attend events—I always did it my way, which is learning the text, doing the best audition possible, and that’s it. No parties, no mingling and no imploring. I don’t have time for that, and I don’t like to engage in small talk either. It’s exhausting. In the past two years, I have only been working.” Nevertheless, what have you had to deal with in the past year? “In the time that passed between ‘Batman v Superman’ and the beginning of the filming of Wonder Woman, I really felt like a frightened little girl who is looking at Mount Everest and has no idea what to do. It was as if I was telling myself, ‘They’re about to realize the bluff. How are they giving me this role now, putting it on my shoulders?!’” And how did you calm this voice? “I just gave everything I had. It put everything I am capable of giving on the plate.” With Ben Affleck in ‘Batman vs. Superman’ (2016). Her first time as Wonder Woman And it’s noticeable. The film’s director, Patty Jenkins, compliments Gadot’s on her professional skills as much as she praises her human skills: “Gal is the perfect Wonder Woman from many aspects. I believe that the spirit of the actor you choose for the film in the most important overall. If the actor fails to understand the spirit of the project, it won’t work. “We needed someone who could play the role of Wonder Woman on the big screen, but we got someone who plays the role on and off-screen. We got someone whose instincts are similar to those of the character she plays. She really is courteous and enduring, but she’s no sucker. She isn’t gentle and fragile. She understands very well what is going on around her, and she’s funny and pleasant as well. She calmed me down many times and knew how to deal with me when I arrived on the set nervous.”
An improved amazon
“Wonder Woman” certainly justifies all the superlatives attached to it. It’s enjoyable, fascinating and funny, and Gadot lives up to the huge expectations that were placed on her when she was pulled out of her relative anonymity straight into the top league of Hollywood. Without the superhero agonies we have become accustomed to in recent years, but with a lot of great action scenes, Gadot manages to create a strong, charismatic and graceful character.
The guys at DC Comics have a good reason to be satisfied. After a series of terrible reviews on “Batman v Superman” and “Suicide Squad,” it seems Gadot has not only nailed it with an incredible role, but has also succeeded in breaking the spell. The film’s creators are now hoping that the audience will feel the same way and turn Wonder Woman not only into the first woman superhero in the world, but also into a blockbuster. Gadot. ‘Israel is always my home, but at the moment we have more things to do here’ (Photo: Brian Bowen Smith) There is no better time than now, therefore, for a short discussion on feminism: is the male audience, which grew up on Superman and other heroes in tights, ready for a woman superhero? Are they even willing to let a woman save them? Can a superhero in a minimalist suit and a shiny lasso manage to do what Hillary Clinton failed to do to the feminist glass ceiling? Gadot is thrilled by the chance to formulate a clear statement on strong femininity, but even she gets slightly confused when one of the foreign film reporters asks if she realizes that she is about to become a role model for many young men and women. “It’s not that I want to be a role model,” she replies, embarrassed. “But if I have the possibility to do it, then I’m glad to have this important opportunity. I think it’s insane that this character has been around for more than 75 years and we have never seen her origin story on the big screen. When boys grow up, they have Superman and Batman and Spiderman and others to admire. Until today, however, we have not had a strong female character to look up to. It’s so important to finally have such a character. And not just for girls, but also for boys. Everyone is talking about more women in politics. You can’t advance women without educating about it. “When we just approached the script, we thought, okay, everyone’s afraid of the word ‘feminism.’ It’s a concept that evokes a lot of emotions and antagonism. I see girlfriends of mine who say, ‘I’m a chauvinist.’ What do you mean you’re a chauvinist, stupid?! We’re here because there were feminists before us who fought for us, so that we would be able to work and vote and take the pill. “I think there is a great misunderstanding over what it actually means to be a feminist. Feminism is the freedom to be who you want to be, equal to any other person. And that’s what Wonder Woman represents in the film. We were so afraid to portray her as a character who castrates men, or as someone who is so cold because she is so strong. It’s the exact opposite. She is so strong because she is so warm. Her protest is not the protest of a woman who shouts, ‘I’m a woman, I’m allowed to vote.’ She simply walks into a diplomats’ meeting and asks—naively, but very sensibly too: ‘Excuse me, I don’t understand. Why can’t I be here?’ We wanted to show just how much she fails to understand the problem.”
So do men trust women to save them?
“That’s a question you have to ask the men.” As Natanya in ‘Date Night’ (2010) The role required a lot of preparations. Gadot says she read two whole cases of books and comic books about Wonder Woman. The filming took a year and a half and was preceded by five months of intensive training around the clock—hitting the gym, martial arts training and horseback riding—but Gadot is not one to complain.
Even when comic book fans all over the world complained about the size of her breasts, Gadot was unfazed. “People were very upset about my boobs. They are not ‘Wonder Woman boobs’, apparently,” she said in a recent interview. “Wonder Woman is an amazon. I should only have one boob, so they are lucky they are getting two small boobs.”
In general, Gadot refuses to make a fuss over the criticism and the difficulties she experienced before and during the shooting. “Even when things were difficult, we did it. After all, I didn’t go to work in a coal mine. I went to work in something that really excited me. It was a wonderful adventure and I had all the support from the people who matter to me—my husband and family and the people I worked with.”
Double the excitement
In the past two years, she has been dividing her life between Tel Aviv and Los Angeles. She is married to Yaron Varsano, a businessman, and they have two daughters, Alma and Maya. In fact, Wonder Woman’s birth in the cinemas comes just two months after Gadot gave birth to her younger daughter.
“It’s like two births! Totally! That’s why I broke my back. Do you know what it’s like to give birth to Wonder Woman?” Gadot laughs. “It’s definitely double the excitement. I’m at the height of my excitement over my little one and at the height of my excitement about the film. I’m very excited these days. I’m experience an overdose of excitement.” With her husband, Yaron Varsano. ‘It’s such a joint victory’ (Photo: Rafi Deloya) In the new universe Gadot is sailing, there is no room for spontaneity. She reveals that she was already five months pregnant when she shot Justice League. “It was planned,” she says. “I wanted to get pregnant for a long time. I couldn’t because of the projects. I knew that this film would come out and that I would have to promote it, so it was impossible to do it at that time. We planned it in the right intervals. We didn’t have too much of a choice, but we were lucky.” In our previous interview, you talked about your feelings of guilt over the amount of time you get to see Alma. Is this something that has softened with your second child? “The feelings of guilt exist, but on the other hand, Alma has grown up and everything’s okay. With a second child, it becomes somewhat easier. You already understand what’s significant and what’s less significant. It’s mostly fun. In general, with the second child you’re much cooler. I’ve never been the hysterical type, but I’m still much calmer than I was the first time around. I’m no longer stressed out by every little thing. “With the second baby, it’s not the same experience as it was with the first one, when everything revolved around them. With a second child, you have to take care of the elder one, because they’re the one who experiences the shock. The baby doesn’t understand where they are yet. A lot of the coping with the second child is offering support and love to the eldest child, but it’s worth it.” As Natalie in ‘Keeping Up with the Joneses’ (2016)
Does Alma understand what’s going on around her?
“What’s going on around her?” That her mom is Wonder Woman. “She’s pretty indifferent towards it, and we’re trying to keep it that way. I don’t think it’s important or that it really matters to her that the film is coming out now or whether there’s some kind of excitement around me. So yes, she knows that the film is being released, and she understands that I’m very excited, and she knows that’ why I’m not home as much and why I’m working more now. But she’s only five, so she doesn’t understand the meaning, and I want to keep I that way. It’s healthier. Her routine is more important to me.” So one day she’ll find out that her mother hid the fact that she’s Wonder Woman from her?
“She knows I’m Wonder Woman. I don’t hide it. She spent a lot of time with me on the set, both in ‘Batman v Superman’ and in ‘Wonder Woman’, and even in ‘Justice League.’ But she’s completely indifferent towards it. As far as she’s concerned, it’s mommy’s job.” As Naomi in ‘Knight and Day’ (2010) Mommy’s work is now taking her around the world. That’s not always easy for a little girl. “She really likes it. Overall, this is the life she was born into, this is what she knows. It’s not new to her. Yaron and I always say that we’re like a travelling circus, but we travel together and the family is where we are, and we make sure to work together. Yaron and I are now working together, producing and developing things together, and it’s an exciting challenge. I feel that what we’re doing is so unique, and we are the fixed variable. The sets change, the houses change, the language changes, but we’re there together. I really feel like it’s his success too. Now, when the embargo was lifted and the reviews were published, I was at home with Yaron. We were drinking wine and he shared my excitement. I looked at the two of us from the side and it was such a joint victory. This project took a lot from all of us, as a family, as a couple and individually. We all enlisted to this thing together.”
Will you stay in LA now?
“For now, we’re here. There is a home both here and in Israel.” You don’t want to commit to a move?
“Israel is always my home, but I have a family life too, and at the moment we have more stuff to do here. I miss my family and friends very much. I find the distance difficult, but during such a busy period, when everything is happening so fast, at least the yearning doesn’t distress me. But I definitely miss them.”
See you at the Oscars?
Like everything in the past month, this day of interviews also began very early for Gadot, 6 am at the latest—and no one can tell when it will end. Interviews, photo shoots, hair and makeup, and an amazing ability to answer questions for 14 hours standing up! The same questions, more or less, one after the other: “How did you prepare for the role?” “What did you know about Wonder Woman before?” as well as “What are you wearing? It’s looks stunning.”
Every other person would look as if they were involved in a work accident, but Gadot always looks as if her day has just begun. She is courteous to every journalist who comes over to flatter her. She is grateful without a hint of cynicism. Gadot at the Mexico premiere of ‘Wonder Woman’ (Photo: AP) Despite the explicit ban on taking photos with the actors, I try my luck. Gadot’s publicist, who is standing next to her with a stopwatch, isn’t very happy with my attempt to grab her for a selfie like Knesset Member Oren Hazan did to US President Donald Trump, but Gadot immediately agrees.
Have Israeli filmmakers essentially lost their chance to work with you?
“Absolutely not. If the role is good, I’d be happy to do it. I’m being asked a lot now if I would like to play roles in Israel, and I always say: ‘Of course.’ It’s really weird that I barely played three roles in Israel before I started working here. It’s unlike anything else, when you can act in your own language. Why, are you writing an interesting movie?”
Yes, but now that you’re an international star, scripts are being sorted for you. What chance do I have?
“That’s true, but with a good script we can talk about it.” You’ve said in the past that your mother made sure to tell you when you just became famous: ‘Don’t let it go to your head. It’s just work.’ I can see that you’re very strict about it.
“Certainly. It mustn’t go to the head. And most importantly, what will go to the head?”
Have you seen yourself all over Times Square?
“So what? When the film is no longer screened, someone else’s picture will be up there. So I’m enjoying it for as long as I can, as much as I can, and yallah, next. I’m already thinking about the next thing.”
The last time we spoke, we agreed to meet in LA. Can we agree to hold our next interview at the Oscars?
“Wow, I wish. I don’t know, but it could be nice.”
Charlize Theron: Being asked to play Gal Gadot’s mom in ‘Wonder Woman’ is a slap in the face
Charlize Theron has played a mom, sure – rather memorably in “Tully.”
Of course, she’s also a mom of two children. But the role of Wonder Woman’s mom?
At 43, she’s nine years older than “Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot, 34. Someone obviously got the math wrong when she revealed on “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen” this week that she was offered the role of Wonder Woman’s mother.
“This is a great example of how Hollywood like slaps you in the face when you start aging,” she said.
Charlize Theron on ‘co-parenting’ with mom: ‘I have absolutely no shame in that’
Theron laughed and said she thought she was talking with someone in Hollywood to play Wonder Woman in the DC film.
“And I was like, ‘I’m not familiar with it. What does Wonder Woman really do?’ And this person said, ‘No, it’s for Wonder Woman’s mom.’ “
“It was the defining moment when I crossed over,” she said. “And I wasn’t fully aware of it.”
The role of Diana Prince’s mother, Hippolyta, would later go to Connie Nielsen. At 53, that makes more sense.

Gal Gadot Becomes Flashpoint Wonder Woman To Face Amber Heard’s Mera In Awesome Image
Gal Gadot suits up as the Flashpoint version of Wonder Woman to face Amber Heard’s Mera in a cool new piece of fan art.
Warner Bros. and DC’s The Flash movie with Ezra Miller was once said to be based on the classic DC Comics storyline Flashpoint. Written by Geoff Johns, Flashpoint follows Barry Allen as he runs back in time to prevent the death of his mother, creating an alternate timeline where he never becomes the Scarlet Speedster and the DC Universe is forever changed. Gal Gadot was said to be joining the project to reprise her role as Wonder Woman following the release of her first standalone film. While this no longer appears to be the case as The Flash has undergone many behind the scenes changes since, that’s not enough to stop fans from imagining what the DC Extended Universe’s Flashpoint event could have looked like.
A stunning piece created by digital artist datrinti gives us an idea as to what Gal Gadot could have looked like as Flashpoint Wonder Woman facing off against Amber Heard’s Mera. You can check out the Flashpoint-inspired artwork below.

What do you think? Would you have like to see Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman face Amber Heard’s Mera? Sound-off your thoughts in the comments!
While Gal Gadot likely won’t appear in Ezra Miller’s The Flash movie, the actress will make her return as Wonder Woman when Wonder Woman 1984 hits theaters next summer. Full details on the Wonder Woman 1984 plot are being kept under wraps, but the project is said to follow Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince as she comes into conflict with the Soviet Union in the 1980s and encounters a formidable new adversary named Cheetah, played by Kristen Wiig.
As for Amber Heard, the actress is expected to return as Mera in the Aquaman sequel alongside Jason Momoa. Aquaman 2 is being written by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, one of the writers behind the hero’s first cinematic solo outing. James Wan is expected to return to the director’s chair after he completes a horror project for New Line Cinema.
Amber Heard made her debut as Mera in Zack Snyder’s 2017 superhero team-up movie Justice League, which also featured Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman. Amber Heard later reprised her role as Mera in Aquaman, which was directed by James Wan. Aquaman grossed $1.147 billion at the worldwide box office, a figure that makes it highest-grossing DC Comics movie of all time.
For now, Amber Heard’s Mera can be seen in the first Aquaman movie. Here is the official synopsis:
From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.
Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm / Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Ludi Lin as Captain Murk, and Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry.
Aquaman is available on Digital HD, 4K UHD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD. Stay tuned for the latest news on Gal Gadot, Wonder Woman 1984, Amber Heard, Aquaman 2 and the future of the DC Extended Universe.

After the disappointing box office result of ‘Justice League’, DC will try to get back on track with the next adventure of the Amazonian princess in WONDER WOMAN 2.
GAL GADOT (Justice League) will reprise her role as ‘Diana Prince’ to face off with her greatest foe ‘Cheetah’ during the Cold War era in the 1980s.
There has been many versions of ‘Cheetah’ throughout the history of ‘Wonder Woman’ but it looks like the film will go with the New 52 DC Comics version, ‘Barbara Ann Minerva’. She is “a British anthropologist who gains her superpowers after stumbling upon an ancient ritual in the lost city of Urzkartaga”. It was rumored that Oscar Winner EMMA STONE (Amazing Spider-Man 2) was offered the role but has turned it down.
Director PATTY JENKINS is once again in charge behind the camera with SAID TAGHMAOUI and EWEN BREMNER returning as ‘Sameer’ and ‘Charlie’. Despite his heroic faith at the end of the first installment, leading man CHRIS PINE is surprisingly also set to return as ‘Steve Trevor’. Production starts rolling this May in the UK.
Who would you like to take on the role of the villainess ‘Cheetah’? Comment below.
Stay tuned for more details.
From a mere mortal’s perspective, it looks like the best gig in a gig economy: superpowers, supergadgets, and a supersecret lifestyle. Caught up in all the sexy superlatives, it’s easy to overlook the downsides of the job: constant death threats, battling evil 24/7…and the dress code? A onesie in latex or stretch polyester, which means zero carbs. And unless your superpower is bladder control—hey, have fun going to the bathroom.
These are the burdens the Justice League must bear, and with them comes an array of mental health issues, ranging from PTSD (Batman) to depression (Superman) to ADHD (The Flash) to anxiety (Cyborg) to identity crisis (Aquaman). Add an addiction (plus box-office–induced anxiety—the new Justice League film is out this month) and you’d have a codependent’s dream team.
Then there’s Wonder Woman—Diana, princess of the Amazons, she of Themyscira, an island of women living in a bliss bubble unseen by the modern warring world, which may or may not explain why she’s the only super who doesn’t need a psychiatrist.
“There’s been a fear for years of her being ‘clean’ and yet still tough,” says Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins, who, three-quarters of a century after Wonder Woman made her DC Comics debut, brought the superheroine’s story to big-screen life last year, starring Gal Gadot. “So many people’s assumptions about what would make a tough woman is actually a damaged woman. People were confusing strength with defensiveness, and I was like, ‘Why would she be defensive? She totally trusts people! Why would she be angry? She assumes that she’s going to be treated well. She has no chip on her shoulder!’”
Wait until she finds out she’s getting paid 80 cents on the dollar.
Unlike her colleagues, Diana is sunny-side up and gets to wear couture straight from Themyscira Fashion Week: a Roman armor-influenced, molded-resin minidress lined with faux fur, with matching over-the-knee greaves, wedge ankle boots, a flowing cape, and one-of-a-kind accessories—a magic tiara, bullet-bouncing bracelets, an heirloom sword and shield, and a golden lasso of truth.
Today being Casual Wednesday in Los Angeles, Gadot emerges, unadorned and unarmed, from a black chauffeured SUV, wearing a black button-down shirt, sky-high cutoffs, and black Gucci loafers. Her shiny black hair is in a ponytail; a tiny diamond hoop earring sparkles in the sunlight. Makeup-free, with a heart-shaped face, Cupid’s bow lips, and smiley, almond-shaped eyes, the Israeli actress looks much younger than 32. When Jon Hamm first met “this bouncy girl in a baseball cap” on the set of 2016’s Keeping Up With the Joneses, he says, “I thought she was a production assistant.”
Gadot (pronounced Guh-dote) insisted that we meet at this strip-mall hole-in-the-wall, asking that the name of the place stay off the record. “Because, as you can see, it’s small, only eight chairs. It’s amazing.”
Suffice it to say we’re at a sushi joint, and given the prices on the menu, the fish were hand-caught by Aquaman this morning. Gadot orders a beer and the omakase (chef’s choice), telling the waiter, “No salmon eggs, no sea urchin, no clams.” Same here.
“You’re gonna love it,” she says. “They take the temperature of the fish, cut the fish a certain way…remember Soup Nazi on Seinfeld? ‘No soup for you!’ It’s like that—they say, ‘No wasabi! No soy sauce!’ They manage your mouth.” She arches an eyebrow, snaps her chopsticks apart, and leans in. “Do not—do not—talk about this place.”
The accent is definitely working for her. Deep and exotic, it makes whatever Gadot happens to say funnier, or sadder, or sillier, or more serious, and overall extra-charming. Even more so when she transposes words or drops one from a sentence, or furrows her brow while struggling with a definition: “What does this mean, resolute?
“When I was based in Israel, way before Wonder Woman, way before anything, I went to my dialogue coach and I told her, ‘My objective is within a year to speak completely American English.’ She said, ‘Gal, dear’— she’s like sixtysomething years old, adorable, full of compassion—she said, ‘Gal, it won’t happen.’ I’m like, ‘What are you talking about? I’m gonna come for three days a week for a few hours, like we make a boot camp out of it!’ She said, ‘But why would you want to do it?’ I said, ‘I’m such a niche, with my accent. I have to play the international girl. There’s no international girl in every movie! This narrows my opportunity.’
“She said, ‘Yes, but you know what? You’re special like this. Do you have any idea how many Americans there are in Los Angeles, looking for roles, who look more American than you, sound more American than you? Just be you.’”
“She reminds me of an Arabian horse. One of a kind. The way she walks. The way her hair falls perfectly down her back. The way she handles herself.” —Criminal director Ariel Vromen
The advice turned out to be prophetic. In 2013, Warner Bros. execs and the director Zack Snyder were screen-testing callbacks to play Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The role was small, an intro of sorts. They needed a certain someone who was loaded with charisma, beauty, strength, and grace, and who appealed to all genders—someone with chutzpah—to front a potential franchise.

“This was the very first time we put her on-camera,” Snyder recalls. “It was a chemistry test with Gal and Ben , shooting a scene I’d scripted to see how Batman and Wonder Woman—as Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince—would look and feel when they were together. It was an intense scene, a moment where they were having a discussion about his plans and whether she would come and join him or not. The tension builds, and at the very end she says, ‘I’m not the one in trouble here, Bruce; you are.’ You really saw how she could go toe-to-toe with Ben. He was supposed to watch her go and then walk off-camera. Instead, he watched her go, slowly turned, looked directly into the camera, and made a face, a ‘Whoof, she’s awesome!’ We all knew she was the one.”
“I knew what she was about to get into with Wonder Woman,” Jon Hamm says. “And I just thought, Oh God, you’re about to go on the 100-mile-per-hour, round-the-world rocket-ship trip.”
“I hadn’t seen any of her other work,” Affleck admits. “But it was clear that not only could she do it, but we really needed to have her; that she could make something great out of this character that is actually a lot harder to play than it looks. Not veering into camp or overly serious—it’s a really fine line to draw. And she’s also breaking ground as a female superhero carrying a movie. There was a lot of pressure on her.”
You’d never know it. After Batman v Superman, Gadot was in Atlanta filming the underrated spy comedy Keeping Up With the Joneses, costarring Hamm, Zach Galifianakis, and Isla Fisher. “I knew what she was about to get into with Wonder Woman and Justice League and everything else,” Hamm says. “And I just thought, Oh God, you’re about to go on the, like, 100-mile-per-hour, round-the-world rocket-ship trip. But she was so sanguine about it, and mellow. A lot of people, if they’ve got a lot going on, it leads into acting out and behaving badly. Gal, never.”
When last we left our three Batman v Superman superheroes, they’d saved mankind but were down a player, as the self-sacrificing Superman took a Kryptonite spear for the team. In the new Justice League film, the entire planet is yet again under threat, and not just from North Korea.
Duty calls, and Batman and Wonder Woman team up once more, drafting other heroes from the DC pantheon into the fight. “There’s kind of a Magnificent Seven aspect to the forming of the group,” Affleck says. And between the two lead characters, a resuming of the chemistry question: Will they, won’t they, why don’t they? Fun!
A waiter sets down two plates, each with a slice of translucent something, and barks, “No soy sauce!” “Oh, it’s so tiny and cute!” Gadot says. She pops it in her mouth, makes a big show of savoring it. “Look at us! You’re from Oklahoma!” (Actually, South Dakota.) “I’m from the Middle East. And we’re here and the sun is shining and we’re eating great food. We should be grateful.”

It was in a sushi restaurant in Atlanta that Gadot and Jenkins first met in 2015 to discuss their vision for Wonder Woman. Jenkins had been hired in a hurry after Wonder Woman’s original director, Michelle MacLaren, dropped out over creative differences. (It’s been reported that MacLaren, known for some of the most amped episodes of Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, and The Walking Dead, had a more badass Wonder Woman in mind.)
“Patty said, ‘What do we want this movie to be?’” Gadot says. “We agreed we had to aspire to have it be a masterpiece with a profound message—not in a heavy way, but in a fun way, an interesting way.”
No problem. Jenkins, best known for 2003’s Monster, a critically acclaimed indie biopic about serial killer Aileen Wuornos, knew the exact tack to take on the superhero project. As she’d done in humanizing Wuornos, she saw her subject Diana Prince from the inside out. “I was interested in taking a journey from her point of view,” Jenkins says. “I was just a person looking at another person and telling a story of what it feels like to be her.”
Take the emotional sequence in which Wonder Woman walks, then runs, alone across a WWI battlefield—no-man’s-land—to liberate a small town from German soldiers. She doesn’t know she’s not going to die—it’s only while fighting to survive the distance that she discovers the true strength of her superpowers. “That scene is my pride and joy,” Jenkins says. “Because it’s about her transformation into Wonder Woman, rather than us watching Wonder Woman show up.” Right there is the reason the $149 million movie grossed $820 million worldwide.
For Gadot, the scene is especially weighted. Her grandfather Abraham Weiss was 13 when the Nazis invaded his village of Munkács in Czechoslovakia. His father died fighting in the army. Weiss and his mother and brother were sent to Auschwitz; he was the only one in his family to survive the camp. Weiss passed away in 2014. “One of the stories I’m developing is about the Holocaust from a women’s perspective,” Gadot says. “I feel like this is part of my mission, to tell the story, because it was such a horror, and he always told me if you forget about your history, the history will repeat itself—especially now, with everything that’s going on.”

“Gal was perfectly cast at a time when the news is about equality and justice for females, equality and justice around the world,” says Robin Wright, who plays Diana’s aunt, Antiope, a fierce Themysciran general, in the film. “That she embodied the female superhero who represents that? That’s why it became global. It was synchronicity.”
Can you imagine Wonder Woman with an American accent? No way.
Not to be the bearer of fake news, but it’s highly likely that Gadot is an agent of the Mossad, here on a mission to recruit an all-girl Justice League. From the sketchy intelligence gleaned so far, other members probably include:
Penélope Cruz: Her favorite actress.
Wright: The star of her favorite film, The Princess Bride, had just dined with Gadot and Jenkins when she called me for our phone interview. “We said, ‘We have to do this once a month!'”
And Gadot’s Batman v Superman and Justice League costar Amy Adams? Definitely in, whether she knows it or not. “Oddly enough, I’m actually with Gal now,” Adams says, giggling on the phone as the two stars’ kids play in the background. Gadot says something, and Adams yells, “No, come on! I’m going to gush about you!
“In the first film, we only had one scene together— when Superman dies—so everything I know of her is outside of work,” Adams continues. “I’m a little shy, and Gal said, ‘I don’t care if I have to pursue you! You will text me back, and we will be friends.’ And you know what? It’s hard to say you feel flattered by someone pursuing a friendship, but I was really flattered because she’s such an interesting, well-rounded person. I’m actually holding back because she’s right here. She’s definitely girl-crush material.”
Fast & Furious director Justin Lin sensed something mysterious about Gadot from the get-go. “I still remember her audition tape,” says Lin, who gave the actress her big Hollywood break in 2009. “A lot of other actresses were playing the scene. But Gal made me feel like, I want to really get to know more about her. There was so much depth, like a life prior. There’s an unknown about her.” He chuckles, perhaps privy to the fake breaking news. “Every time I sat with her at a meal, I’d find something out: ‘Yeah, I was in the military.…’”
This much about Gal Gadot is for certain, according to the Department of Justice League dossier: She grew up with her younger sister, Dana, just outside Tel Aviv, in Rosh Ha’ayin, a small city where her father, Michael, worked as a mechanical engineer and her mother, Irit, as a phys ed teacher.
It was, by Gadot’s account, a happy childhood: “Sport was a big thing—boredom is the biggest enemy of youth. When teenagers are busy, especially with sports, they get to release all these endorphins, all the frustration or whatever you feel.” That said, she also exercised an early talent for the clandestine. “I was a really good hider! You know, skipping school; you go out and tell your parents you’re going out with the girlfriend, and you go to the boyfriend…”
A soccer-team cheerleader, basketball player, and hip-hop dancer, Gadot graduated from high school and was crowned Miss Israel 2004, before serving the mandatory two years in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) as a combat instructor.

Her obligation fulfilled, Gadot—at warp speed— entered law school, began modeling, left law school, and was cast in Bubot (“Babes”), a short-lived Israeli scripted series following the lives of models.
Within two years, she landed Fast & Furious. Between reprising her role in three of the franchise’s films, one small babe part led to another: Entourage, Date Night, Knight and Day, Criminal, and before you can say “Red leather, never yellow leather” five times fast—her dialogue exercise—Gadot became the most powerful movie star in Hollywood.
“My agent met her and said, ‘You and Gal have to do a comedy together,’” Adams says. “So now I’m writing a comedy for us. I’m not kidding. We’re going to pull Isla in, too.”
Meanwhile, back in our secret L.A. sushi location, every time Gadot tilts her head and touches that tiny diamond hoop in her upper left ear, like some agreed-upon signal, the angry waiter shows up. “No wasabi!”
Gadot got the cartilage piercing on her birthday. “I turned 28, and I felt, My God, this is a serious number— everyone has their number. I said, I’ve gotta do something to make myself feel young again. I’m too coward to do a tattoo.”
She leaves tattoos to her husband, 42-year-old multimillionaire real-estate developer Jaron Varsano. “But,” she says coyly, “I cannot tell you what they are.”
The two met at a desert retreat where Gadot, then 20, had gone to heal multiple breaks of the heart. “The boyfriend in high school I had been with for four years, we went our separate ways, and I was fine with that,” she says. “But then I had another relationship and another relationship, and they were all older than me, and they kept on breaking up with me! And I’m like a Labrador puppy—I just need to be with someone, be loved and hugged. I love to laugh. I don’t like to be by myself.
“So as a kicked puppy, I went to the desert, and I took Falling in Love: Why We Choose the Lovers We Choose, a university psychology book. It talks about what triggers us as people, what we’re affected by, the fact that there’s no such thing as falling in love. You don’t fall in the net of love.
“Then Jaron got there with mutual friends, and we all stayed in the same area on the dune in tents. And he came, and he didn’t look at me twice. And that annoyed me”—she looks the other way. “What’s with the overconfidence?
“The food was so bad there, like super not-attractive food,” Gadot continues. “So Jaron drove to this French restaurant an hour and a half from there, and he bought the entire menu and brought it back to everyone. So we were sitting in a circle, and I’m like Mama Goose serving food for everyone and bringing them the plate; and he’s sitting next to me, and I just put my hand on his thigh, and that was it for him. We started talking until the sun set and the sun rose. The entire night.”
They have two daughters—Alma, five, and Maya, nine months—and after nine years of marriage, Gadot is still a goner. “He’s my superman, the love of my life…how far can I go with this?” Quite far.

The bill paid, Gadot winks good-bye to the chef behind the sushi bar and, in a perfect American accent, says, “Awesome, man! I loved it, dude!” She points to a sign: NO SPICY TUNA ROLL. NO CALIFORNIA ROLL. “See, I told you,” she says.
Outside, the black SUV is idling. Gadot, in a generous kidnapping attempt, offers me a lift to the hotel. Inside the car, she introduces her friend Noa Dolev, who rides shotgun, next to the chauffeur. The two women have known each other since they were eight. Dolev, 32, works for a peacekeeping organization that focuses on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. “Noa was a newcomer” to their school, Gadot says. “The teacher told Noa’s mother that she should call my mother, and we should have a playdate, and that was it!”
“Yeah, and then we fell in love!” Dolev laughs.
I ask Dolev what her best friend was like growing up, and she turns to Gadot. “Can I say?”
They break into rapid Hebrew, two giggling girls.
“In school, Gal was the most friendly, very popular girl,” Dolev says. “I was the trouble one.”
“Noa is very loyal,” Gadot says, smiling at her.
As we turn the corner onto Sunset Boulevard, a 40-foot Justice League billboard looms into view. There she is, Wonder Woman, front and center. Just the kind of superhero this crazy, uncertain, perilous, spinning planet needs.

It’s a safe bet that the crowd gathered for a Gucci party at Berlin’s Soho House has seen its fair share of glittering young things, but when Gal Gadot walks into the loft-like space on a recent Wednesday night, her dark beauty and quiet charisma send a palpable current of energy through the room. The Israeli actress should get used to the attention: With Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice set to hit theatres next spring, Gadot is poised to take her spot in the action hero hall of fame. And while the former dancer and fitness instructor was a natural for the physically demanding role of Wonder Woman, her fine-boned features and lithe, athletic frame have recently won her another role, as the face of Gucci’s new Gucci Bamboo perfume (out this month).
For the Tel Aviv–based Gadot, who stars in the fashion house’s Mert and Marcus–lensed campaign, fragrance is something deeply personal—she counts the scent of the ocean and her three-year old daughter, Alma, as amongst her favorite smells. A signature perfume, on the other hand, is a kind of olfactory calling card: “It makes the first first impression,” she says, perched on a velvet sofa inside her hotel suite, wearing a black leather Gucci dress and a dash of the fashion house’s sandalwood, vanilla, and ylang-ylang blend. “Before you even say hello, people can smell it.”
Sensorial messaging aside, if Gadot is making an impression of her own this morning, it’s an appealing blend of warmth and exuberance that’s amplified by the slightest trace of a Hebrew accent as she animatedly describes being late to the beauty game despite winning Miss Israel in 2004 (“I was a tomboy! I hated all the heavy makeup.”) and the two years she spent whipping soldiers into shape while she was in the army (“crazy!”). And though she’s just passing through town for a 72-hour press call, she shows no sign of frequent-flyer fatigue—a fact she’s quick to credit to a host of beauty tricks. Here, she shares a few of her secrets on how she keeps her skin and her body in fighting shape.
TAKE ON JET LAG LIKE A PRO
“I’ve gotten used to jet lag but I have tricks. I drink tons of water because I get really dehydrated when I travel, and also freshly squeezed orange juice because the Vitamin C is really good for your body. I try to be outside in the daylight as much as I can to get my serotonin levels up. And I’ve got to tell you: I can go to sleep like this . When I get into an airplane, I usually fall asleep before takeoff. If I need to go to bed, I will put myself on ‘off.’ ”
FINE-TUNE YOUR TRAVEL BEAUTY KIT
“I always pack the creams my aesthetician, Gisele—she goes by her first name—in Tel Aviv mixes for me. They keep my face in good shape. I also bring La Mer Cleansing Oil, because it doesn’t dry out my skin. And I take Evian water spray with me—if you feel like your makeup has dried out during the day, it gives a boost of hydration. I also take a small bag of makeup basics, including Careline mascara—which is Israeli and really good—and blush. I don’t like the feeling of wearing makeup, so I always mix my foundation with my day cream. Gucci’s is sheer but it covers what needs to be covered.”
