Gal Gadot made sure to say happy birthday to the Batman to her Wonder Woman. The actress went on Twitter to send well wishes to Ben Affleck on Monday.
Gadot first worked with Affleck, 44, on this spring’s “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.” The two will continue to try to save the world together in “Justice League.” A trailer shown at San Diego Comic-Con in July revealed that Wonder Woman is the first member of the team Batman is putting together. The band of heroes will eventually include The Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher), but it’ll take some convincing to get all of them onboard. The movie is set to hit theaters Nov. 17, 2017.
Wonder Woman and Batman might be appearing in more than just “Justice League” together. After a Wayne Enterprises truck was spotted on the set of “Wonder Woman,” there are rumors that the Dark Knight will appear in the 2017 film. However, nothing has been confirmed.
It sounds like the two could be working together quite a bit in the future, so it’s good that the Israeli actress seems to like Affleck. “I find it very enjoyable to work with an actor who is also a director,” the 31-year-old told Us Weekly in April. “There’s an added value to it. He knew how to push my buttons to get more out of me as an actress.”
Affleck’s birthday comes just after several other superhero birthdays, but last week’s celebrations were all for Marvel. Much like Gadot, “Captain America” star Chris Evans reached out to his co-stars Chris Hemsworth (Thor) on Aug. 11 and Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier) on Aug. 13. Meanwhile, Aquaman actor Jason Momoa celebrated his birthday on Aug. 1.
