And Carter believes she, Gadot and film director Patty Jenkins share a special bond because of the movie.
Patty Jenkins (Monster) directs a wonderfully wrought origin story that will both unite fans of what's already come with those who may have rolled their eyes at DC Comics' previous outings. Those are the words Wonder Woman's mother says to her before our heroine embarks on a mission to save mankind.
Enduring for more than 75 years, Wonder Woman was the first prominent female superhero and broke the stereotype of the female sidekick and damsel in distress.
"Gal Gadot may be an Israeli, but we want to watch a movie about the incredible character of Wonder Woman", it said. Wonder Woman can be very charming and warm and have so much compassion and love for the world.
In the film, Wonder Woman's red and gold bodice doubles as a suit of armor in fight scenes in which she darts and dodges bullets, knives and thunder bolts.
The movie is slated to hit the theatres on June 2.
Wonder Woman is a great movie and you should get out and see it this weekend.
USA Today expressed pleasure with the film's divergence in setting from the original comic books' WWII setting, saying "The film's action is explosive and engaging, and a sequence where Diana (Gadot) ventures into no man's land in the middle of a trench battle is stunning to behold". "She really felt like you stand a different way (in heels), and you do".
She said: 'Being an actress is tough. Like the rest of the excellent cast, we're compelled to stand behind her.
"I don't understand why somebody who has had zero big blockbuster representation for 75 years still has 15 little girls a minute coming to my door dressed as her every Halloween, like how does that not equal dollar signs?"
"Six months prior to the shoot, I had to do a lot of gym work and martial arts", Gadot informed O'Brien, who then pointed out that he only had half an hour to do the same. While I think DC still has a long way to go to catch Marvel, it seems that they've finally broken through the wall and are on the right track.
