Won­der Woman is com­ing – and she’s hot; retro sports gear; which Bat­man (or Su­per­man) are you?; fash­ion with Thom Browne; the coolest kayak on wa­ter.

It could have been so dif­fer­ent – it could have been Megan Gale pulling on Won­der Woman’s knick­ers and cape. Thank­fully Gal Gadot got the gig – thank­fully, you’d agree if you’ve seen Gale in I Love You Too. Noth­ing against the stat­uesque Aussie but Gadot’s our, um, gal, and this is her year to shine. Be­yond last month’s heist film Triple 9, Gadot’s all ar­se­kick­ing as the caped cru­sader along­side Ben Af­fleck and Henry Cav­ill in the an­tic­i­pated Bat­man v Su­per­man: Dawn of Jus­tice (Won­der Woman’s first big-screen out­ing ahead of 2017’s stand­alone, epony­mous ef­fort) be­fore star­ring in the thriller Crim­i­nal op­po­site Ryan Reynolds. And there’s also up­com­ing com­edy Keep­ing Up with the Joneses with Jon Hamm and Zach Gal­i­fi­anakis. “I love com­edy. I’m the type of girl who doesn’t take her­self too se­ri­ously,” Gadot’s said. “I’m se­ri­ous when it comes to work, but I like to make fun of my­self.” Like her in­tro­duc­tory Fast & Fu­ri­ous char­ac­ter, Gisele, the 30-year-old Is­raeli is par­tial to two-wheels (specif­i­cally a Du­cati Mon­ster) and came to act­ing af­ter time as a Miss Uni­verse con­tes­tant and stint as a fit­ness in­struc­tor for the Is­raeli De­fense Forces. “I did a four-month boot camp where I had to go for 11-kilo­me­tre runs ev­ery morn­ing at 6:30am,” she’s said of the manda­tory ser­vice. “But the army wasn’t dif­fi­cult for me – it gave me good train­ing for Hol­ly­wood.” We’re sure it did.
