Gal Gadot, who will appear as Wonder Woman in the upcoming film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, took the Ice Bucket Challenge yesterday after Ben Affleck, aka Batman, accepted the challenge on Monday.

The 29-year old Israeli actress and model has appeared in other American films such as Fast & Furious, Fast Five, and Fast & Furious 6, as well as Date Night with Mark Wahlberg.

In the Fast & Furious films, Gadot is known for doing her own stunts.

“I think the main reason was that [the director] really liked that I was in the military,” she said, “and he wanted to use my knowledge of weapons.”

She added, “There aren’t enough good roles for strong women. I wish we had more female writers. Most of the female characters you see in films today are ‘the poor heartbroken girl.’ That’s why I’m so proud of the Fast movies. I feel like Giselle is an empowering woman.”

After completing the Ice Bucket Challenge, Gadot nominated Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder and the original Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter.

The purpose of the challenge is simple: to spread awareness of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. The complications that arise eventually lead to death.

As of today, the ALS Association has received $31.5 million in donations due to the Ice Bucket Challenge which goes to research and clinical management projects.

Celebrities, sports figures, former presidents, and the general public have accepted the challenge recently including George W. Bush and the Foo Fighters.

Gal Gadot, as well as Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and Amy Adams can be seen in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice when it is released on March 25, 2016.

    Hmph! Who is this GG person? I thought this had to do with the original and best Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter. I’m outta here!

    This was very misleading. Who cares about the new Wonder Woman. THere is only one.

    Now if she’d only speak out about her country’s murderous rampage in Gaza, I’d be impressed.

    • Michael Bristow

      SHe already did

      SHe said ” Stoooop booooombing Israel Aaaaasss Hooooooles !”

    • Michael Bristow

      Id be impressed if people would stop taking the side of murders that hide behind women and children, that put guns and rocket launchers by kids schools and raise little terrorists up at 5 years old and let them hold a human severed head in public for a selfie .. This is the Palestine and Hamas that you know and love.

        Have you been to the area? I’ve been there, worked there, lived there, and saw things first hand. Your rhetoric is that of the ignorant, who know nothing of the region. You are a fool.

        • R.M. 4 sure

          It actually true, Gaza terrorists hide behind woman & children. They place their rocket launchers close to schools, hospitals, and where people live. They go through underground tunnels to kidnap innocent civilians. This is all truth. I can share pics with you if you disagree.

            Your grasp of the history of the area, the formation of the nation of Israel, and the removal of the native people of the land must be lacking.
            It is true that SOME terrorists have done cowardly things, but the vast majority of Palestinians are innocent and do not deserve to be murdered, and do not deserve to have their children murdered. It is Israel who is responsible for the deaths of more Palestinian children than any “terrorist.”
            You’re an idiot. Get a goddamned education. I can show you plenty of photos of children dead at the hands of Israel.

            Palestinians have only been called that since 1963. Most of them came from Saudi Arabia. There have always been Jews in the land. At one time Jews and Palestinian Arabs as they were called back in the day got along pretty well.

            Thanks for the very basic history lesson. It doesn’t change the fact that Israel was strong-armed into the land with the back of world superpowers, displacing people who were already there. Then Israel proceeded to take more and more land away from them and restricting their movement. Their crimes of apartheid are epic. I could go on and on.
            The victims have successfully been characterized as the monsters, made subhuman by a giant media machine belonging to the US, Britain and Israel. The Palestinians had no media, no voice, no help for decades. They’re finally getting a voice, but they’re still getting obliterated. I’m sorry, you just can’t justify this level of sociopathy to me.

            There’s nothing you can say to convince me that Israel is the victim here. I know too much about it, I’ve met too many Palestinians (Arabs to you) and too many Israelis. And by the way, you do know there is a huge segment of Israel that is anti-Zionist, don’t you? Or do you prefer to remain completely in the dark about the reality of the situation?

          • R.M. 4 sure

            If Palestine were not to place their rocket launchers near and on rooftops of schools, hospitals, and where people live, maybe their civilians wouldn’t be hurt. But Palestine is very good at using internet & social media to hype the results of what happens because of their manipulations. It is a shame Palestine leaders hide behind the skirts of mothers protecting their young. I can show you photos of the well placed rocket launcher locations, if I can figure out how to do that on this website.

    • R.M. 4 sure

      Israel has every right to defend itself. Gaza broke the ceasefire again, and so Israel retaliated, as they had every right to.
      Gadot has stood up for Israel, as any one with intelligence would do the same.

    • VanPastorMan

      You’re an idiot. Hamas is putting civilians in harm’s way while shooting rockets into Israel and you blame Israel?

      • capoeiraike .

        Yeah people tend to get upset when Israel slaughters innocent people

        • R.M. 4 sure

          Civilized nations don’t place rocket launchers on rooftops of hospitals & schools, they complain when those launch sites are retaliated against. Hamas are terrorists, they broke the ceasefire again, they cannot be trusted to act with ethics & morality.

        You call me an idiot, then characterize the whole thing in one simple sentence?

        • Mick McCuddahey

          Your not an idiot your a pompass asshole. Let’s go for a walk in the woods sometime you prick!!

          • Guest

            I’ll pray for you.

          • Mick McCuddahey

            I don’t expect,need or want prayers from the likes of you! You can pray or speak of your god all you want but at the end of the day you are still a pompass ass. Now go back in the hole you crawled out of boy

      • IAMRIGHTANDYOUAREWRONG

        IT IS WHAT ANY RATIONAL GROUP WOULD DO WHEN FACED WITH OVERWHELMING ODDS-THEY WILL GET MURDERED BY ISRAELI ROCKETS AND BOMBS ANYWAY SO WHY NOT MAKE THE POLITICIANS-REMEMEBER THEY CALL THE SHOTS!-LOOK LIKE THE INHUMAN PIGS THAT THEY ARE.

  • R.M. 4 sure

    Gadot looks anorexic, not good look for Wonder Woman

  • schnoggles
