Gal Gadot is an Israeli actress, model, and film producer. At the age of 18, she was crowned Miss Israel 2004. She then served two years in the Israel Defense Forces as a combat instructor and began studying law and international relations at IDC Herzliya college while building up her modeling and acting careers.
She began modeling in the late 2000s, and made her film debut in the fourth film of the ‘Fast and Furious‘ franchise, ‘Fast & Furious’ in 2009, as Gisele. Her role was expanded in the sequels ‘Fast Five’ in 2011 and ‘Fast & Furious 6’ in 2013, in which her character was romantically linked to Han Seoul-Oh. In the films, she performed her own stunts. She also appeared in the 2010 films ‘Date Night’ and ‘Knight and Day’.
She went on to earn worldwide fame for portraying Wonder Woman in the DC Extended Universe, beginning with ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ in 2016, followed by the solo film ‘Wonder Woman’ and the ensemble ‘Justice League‘ both in 2017. She received swordsmanship, Kung Fu kickboxing, Capoeira, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training in preparation for the role. As a result, her performance as the superhero, which is the first time for the character on film, was hailed as one of the best parts of the otherwise poorly-received film. In 2018, she was included on Time‘s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world.
At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Gal Gadot project? Well, the good news is that we have a clear answer to that question. Here’s the list of upcoming Gal Gadot films and television shows scheduled to release in the near future. We can only hope that the latest Gal Gadot projects would be as good as some of her recent ones.

‘Death On The Nile’ is an upcoming movie based on celebrated author Agatha Christie’s novel of the same name. The new movie will chronicle detective Hercule Poirot’s vacation in Egypt where he discovers a murder on a cruise on the Nile as a love triangle goes bad. The movie is supposed to be the cinematic sequel to the 2017 movie ‘Murder on the Orient Express’.
Kenneth Branagh will be returning as director and is expected to reprise his role as detective Hercule Poirot. Tom Bateman is set to return as Bouc.

2. Untitled Hedy Lamarr Project (2020-)
Having played Wonder Woman from the comics, Gal Gadot is all set to play the part of a Jewish woman who is often referred to as the real-life ‘Wonder Woman’, for her contributions to technology, and her inventions. The biographical drama series where the Israeli star is set to appear does not have a working title yet but is going to focus on the life of Hedy Lamarr. The 20th-century woman started off as an actress and eventually became involved in the Second World War.
Lamarr, born Hedwig Kiesler, managed to start her career in Czechoslovakia in the early 1930s before she left her husband, a wealthy Austrian ammunition manufacturer, and moved to Paris. While in London, she met Louis B. Mayer, the head of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer studio, who offered her Hollywood roles, which led to projects like ‘Algiers’ and ‘Comrade X’. Lamarr was also an inventor who went on to develop a radio guidance system along with composer George Antheil. At the beginning of WWII, this system helped Allied torpedoes, using full-spectrum and frequency. Some aspects of their work went on to be used in Bluetooth and WiFi technologies, earning them a place in the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2014.
Gadot should be perfect for the role, considering her life, too, has included a mixture of acting and modeling with military duties. The series is slated to air sometime in 2020 on Showtime. Gadot is also attached as an executive producer.
1. Justice League Part Two (TBA)
Ever since the first ‘Justice League’ movie came out, we have been waiting for the other shoe to drop, especially after the post-credits scene that teased a whole new problem the superhero team would have to face. However, since the first film did not do too well, DCEU decided to go another way, and focus on more origin stories, trying to make the tone of the movies a little lighter, therefore, more accessible to viewers.
That being said, ‘Justice League Part Two’ is in the pipelines, though it is sure to be some time before the movie comes out. If you are wondering why it is because both Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill have quit their roles as Batman and Superman. While Robert Pattinson is on board for the next Batman movie and could become part of the franchise, a Justice League without Superman is hard to imagine. Thus, we have to wait until a Superman is cast. However, Gal Gadot will be back as Wonder Woman. Now, we are left wondering if the movie will actually refer to the changed actors or just gloss over that part. We also have to wonder if the plot will follow Lex Luthor forming his own league with the likes of Deathstroke. If so, the sequel could promise that the heroes are going to meet some challenges and run into problems.
‘Justice League Part Two’ does not have a release date yet, but we are sure that Gadot will deliver a fine performance, standing out in her own right amidst talented stars.
Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018)
‘Ralph Breaks the Internet‘ is an American 3D computer-animated comedy film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures. It is the second installment of the ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ film series and the sequel to the 2012 film ‘Wreck-It Ralph’. It is directed by Rich Moore and Phil Johnston, written by Johnston and Pamela Ribon, and executive-produced by John Lasseter, Chris Williams, and Jennifer Lee.
It features John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch, and Ed O’Neill reprising their roles from the first film, with Alan Tudyk returning to voice a new character, alongside new additions to the cast such as Gal Gadot, Taraji P. Henson, and Alfred Molina. The film released in the United States on November 21, 2018.
Between Two Ferns: The Movie (2019)
If you are a fan of Zach Galifianakis’ quirky interviews in ‘Between Two Ferns’, then you will love the movie that is essentially based on the same concept. It came out on Netflix and follows Zach as an interviewer who aspires to make it big in television. While he tries to be a good interviewer, he ends up being unwittingly comical, which makes his show a hit. However, after a studio mishap, his boss straightens him out, telling him that he has to interview a certain number of celebrities within a particular time, to get his shot at primetime television.
Thus begins a road adventure featuring many of the funny interviews that made ‘Between Two Ferns’ a raging success. There are several celebrities who appear on the show, with Zach taking on an almost hostile demeanor while questioning them. Gal Gadot is one of the celebrities who Zach interviews. However, the actress appears as herself only once Zach has made it big. Thus, she is not subjected to Zach’s unscrupulous questioning. Nonetheless, the interview is enjoyable, as is the movie. ‘Between Two Ferns: The Movie’ released on September 20, 2019.
