In 9 days fans will finally see Wonder Woman brought to life on the big screen in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Gal Gadot has been on an extensive press tour promoting the film and stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to discuss her time on set and the realization that she was Wonder Woman.
Gadot’s costume has been a hot topic for many movie and comic book fans but she explained it wasn’t an easy process for her trying on the now iconic outfit. She explained that she struggled with the outfit, more on a physical level the moment she tired it on.
“I walked into this huge hangar filled with images of me as Wonder Woman, which was surreal. Then they got me into the fitting room and tried on the costume. And I was so happy and so grateful for being there and doing this role that I didn’t say anything about the fact it was so tight, I literally could not breathe.”
Wonder Woman will be featured in Batman v Superman, along with appearing in her own headlining solo film due to be released in 2017. Gadot will also be appearing in Justice League Part 1, which starts production this April.
