No other comes to mind except for Gal Gadot when one hears the name Wonder Woman. The Israeli actress has successfully portrayed the DCEU character in all of the film projects she has appeared in. Alongside, the actress has been preparing for an upcoming project for Netflix titled Heart of Stone. While discussing it, Gadot opened up about another of her future projects which is going to be based on the historical figure, Queen Cleopatra.

She recently detailed why she wants to bring the character into the spotlight once again. The actress mentioned that her primary objective was to focus more on the Egyptian ruler’s Wonder Woman-like characteristics.

According to the Justice League star, all the previous works that the character appeared in did not justify who Cleopatra really was. That alone seems to have made the actress decide to fully understand and learn about the ruler of the Ptolemaic dynasty of Egypt.
