Superman: Dawn of Justice where she fought alongside the Man of Steel.

In an interview with WBTV Brazil, Gal Gadot weighed in on the debate when asked if her version of Wonder Woman could beat Henry Cavill’s Superman in a fight.
Gadot stated that while the fight would be close, Wonder Woman would emerge victorious.
“For sure. It’s gonna be a tight one, but yes.”

10 Reasons To Be Optimistic About ‘Wonder Woman’
There’s a fair amount riding on Wonder Woman, DC’s summer blockbuster, for more reasons than just being the first major female superhero movie made. It follows up two divisive entries in the universe, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. While successful, the performances of both at the box office and with critics merited re-evaluation by the filmmakers in the form of corporate restructuring and written mea culpas.
Despite these stumbles, there’s many reasons to be optimistic about Wonder Woman. Gal Gadot was well-received as Diana Prince in Batman v Superman, it’s set in the past, focusing on one character after two ensemble pictures, and both Patty Jenkins and Geoff Johns add directorial and comic credibility, respectively. Plus, it’s no small thing that DC Films will beat Marvel Studios to the first female superhero movie, despite the latter having made over a dozen movies to former’s four. It’s important milestone for representation in pop culture.
