Israeli actress and Wonder Woman superstar Gal Gadot will potentially star in a movie set in Post- World War II-era Germany.
While we eagerly anticipate Gal Gadot’s return as Diana Prince in Wonder Woman 2 (oh, and Justice League, lest you forget), we are of course also keeping an eye on other upcoming projects featuring this talented actress.
One that should be of particular interest is the very currently relevant Ruin, a Justin Kurzel-directed post-WW2-era movie in which a former Nazi captain seeks penance for his war crimes by hunting down his former team members.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gadot is in talks to star, with no contract yet in place; Christian Bale has allegedly been offered the role of the captain.
Gal Gadot would of course have a highly personal stake in this film, being an Israeli Jew of Polish-Jewish, Austrian-Jewish, German-Jewish, and Czech-Jewish descent. Although the Wonder Woman movie took place during World War I, Wonder Woman the comic book character was originally created in and for World War II, a symbol of the fight against Nazis.
If Gadot does sign on for this movie, let’s hope her character is front and center of the action where she belongs!
