"When I just started, the first time I played Wonder Woman, was on Batman v Superman, and it was current day, so I got to play the "end result" of who Wonder Woman is", Gadot tells Cinema Blend.

The 32-year-old actress opened up about her past struggle in Hollywood at host Jimmy Fallon's show "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon", reports aceshowbiz.com.

Discussing Gal's casting, executive producer Deborah Snyder told SciFiNow magazine: "They thought she was the kindest and so genuine". Given the fact that characters such as Superman and Batman have been rebooted more than a handful of times in the last 20 to 30 years, you can nearly expect a different take on the origin story for each.

"She continued: "[After three movies] I've spent time with her, and I see that she cares about education and she treats everybody around her with respect and kindness.

What do you think of Gal's red carpet footwear? It gives her that inexplicable quality that she has that just lights up the screen. "And I was very curious to understand and really go through who she is and how she became Wonder Woman". We were setting out to make something close to Richard Donner's Superman or Batman Begins. She's certainly handsome but strong, and warm but compelling, and has great conviction and sense of comedy, and who she is as a person. she's very honest and truthful. She comes from a place of strength always. She's wonderful. I feel like I'm the luckiest actress that I got to work with such a phenomenal director like her.

Jensen also had high praise for his director, Patty Jenkins, describing her work ethic through an on-set anecdote. I'm not one to jump on board the whole debate on body size, body hair, or all other battles women have to face on a daily basis, but I do have to say that at no point during the film did it even cross my mind that such a debate exists. Last fall, she was included in a United Nations ceremony honoring the Wonder Woman character as an honorary ambassador for the empowerment of women and girls.

The world of comic book superheroes is such a massive interconnected web of characters that it's easy to lose track of who is related to whom.

We all felt the tone of the movie was similar to Casablanca and the Christopher Reeve Superman.
