Gal Gadot took a break while filming Wonder Woman 1984 to visit a local children’s hospital while in full costume. After a role in Universal's Fast and Furious franchise, Gal Gadot made a splash in Hollywood and with audiences around the globe by taking on the role of DC’s very own Wonder Woman. Despite having a vast amount of experience in the acting industry, she brought attention to the character of Diana Prince after being casted in late 2013 for Zack Snyder's Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Directed by Patty Jenkins and co-starring Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Wonder Woman first premiered in June 2017 and took in an impressive haul of over $821 million worldwide. Despite the controversy that surrounded Warner Bros' burgeoning DC Films universe before Wonder Woman's release, audiences gave an overwhelmingly positive response to the first female superhero film. The film’s sequel, Wonder Woman 1984, is currently filming in Virginia and is set to make Jenkins the highest paid female director of all time.
Earlier today, pediatric nephrologist Patty Seo-Mayer posted a photo on Twitter that showcased the actress visiting the Inova’s Children’s Hospital in Falls Church, Virginia. The tweet praises the actress for her unexpected appearance and jokingly asks her to return. Even off camera, Gadot seems more than comfortable in her role of Diana Prince as it seems that the hospital visit was entirely unplanned. However, the staff and patients alike seemed beyond happy with the unscheduled drop-in.
Dear @GalGadot- Thank you SO MUCH for visiting my patients and colleagues at #InovaChildrensHospital! Next time, can you align your visit with my call schedule? Love, #SuperFan pic.twitter.com/kmE7CoFRvE— Patty Seo-Mayer (@PSeoMayer) July 7, 2018
Wonder Woman 1984 is indeed currently filming in Virginia, though most of the plot details for the film are still very much under wraps. At the moment, it’s been confirmed that the sequel will be directed by Jenkins, who is receiving a $9 million paycheck for her work, with Dave Callaham working on the screenplay alongside Jenkins and Geoff Johns. The sequel to 2017’s Wonder Woman is set to explore the journey of Diana Prince as she comes face to face with a new opponent who goes by the name of Cheetah. Gadot will once again star as Diana Prince, with Pine returning as Steve Trevor, and Kristen Wiig making her debut appearance asBarbara Minerva aka. Cheetah.
Gadot’s unscheduled visit to the hospital will only prove to drive up the excitement of Wonder Woman fans as audiences eagerly wait for more insider information regarding the film. Gadot has recently used her celebrity status to speak up about the current US child separation policy and brought attention to the issue. It seems she’s not yet finished making use of her Wonder Woman reputation, and it wouldn’t be that much of a surprise to see more unexpected appearances as production continues to progress.
