Now that she is back in the modern world after her time in Themyscira, Gal Gadot seems to be all set for a short vacation in the town known as Springfield.
The star of Wonder Woman and Justice League revealed a short while back that she is going to play Wonder Woman on the famous animated series The Simpsons. Gadot used social media with a brief video showing her signing a poster for the show, which is going to be back on March 11th after the winter break.
Wonder Woman is the latest star to join a glittering list of guest actors who have given their voice to the latest The Simpsons season, and she is joined by Martin Short, Neil Gaiman, Kat Dennings and Shaquille O’Neal.
Although the plot of the upcoming episode hasn’t been revealed, Wonder Woman’s appearance further lays credence to her status as a superstar. Right from the first time, she debuted as Diana of the Amazons in Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Gal Gadot has seen a steady rise in her stardom, and as the leading star of the most loved film in the summer of 2017, she has also secured a place among the hottest actors in Hollywood today.
Gadot is scheduled to commence shooting for Wonder Woman II over the summer, once again joined by director Patty Jenkins. Now that her origin story has been established, Gadot had stated that she is excited venturing into new territory with the character.
“Other than the wonderful work Lynda Carter did in the TV show, this character was never really told on the big screen,” Gadot told Entertainment Weekly. “We just see her origin story. But there’s so much to explore with this character who has 75 years of legacy, there’s so much material and so many ways, and I’m psyched about it.”
Wonder Woman II is supposed to be based during the Cold War era, which means that the film will be another period story. The details of the plot haven’t been revealed, and we don’t have any updates yet about which actors are going to come back or the villains. However, once the filming comes closer, fans are bound to know further details about the upcoming film.
Wonder Woman II is expected in theaters on December 1st, 2019.
