“Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot really looks up to the superhero she is portraying on the big screen and even believes that Diana Prince stands out as a feminist icon.

When asked why this is so, Gadot told Comic Book that it’s because Diana does not see gender as an issue. “She comes from this point where men and woman are equal and it's not a thing to be a man or to be a woman,” she explained.

Gadot believes Diana’s mission to promote gender equality is desperately needed especially in this age of divide. In addition, it’s very refreshing to have a female role model to look up to. “I feel very proud that finally this movie's being made, because ... All of you guys, all men, all boys, always have a figure to look up to whether it's Superman, or Batman, or Spider-Man, or whatever it is they always had heroes to look up to,” Gadot said.

“Girls, it's always the princesses. We're being saved, we're being passive, and finally Wonder Woman. She's fierce, she's proactive, she believes in herself, she believes through everything and that's a true moment for me,” she continued.

The new film directed by Patty Jenkins has received a PG-13 rating, according to Batman News. The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) explained that the film was given this rating because of “sequences of violence and action, and some suggestive content.”

The film’s producer Deborah Snyder assured fans that “Wonder Woman” will be a unique offering from DC, and she’s positive they will love it. “‘Wonder Woman’ is very different in tone and style than ‘Batman v Superman’ and ‘Suicide Squad,'” she told Variety. “We pick directors who have their own points of view, so that each of our films will have their own personality.”
