Gal Gadot visits children’s hospital as Wonder Woman

Gal Gadot followed in a long line of actors inhabiting their superhero characters in the real world Friday when she visited a children’s hospital dressed as Wonder Woman.

Kids at Inova Children’s Hospital in Annandale, Va. got to meet the star of “Wonder Woman” and the upcoming sequel film “Wonder Woman 1984” — and the staff enjoyed the visit as well.

“Thank you Gal Gadot for visiting us at Inova Children’s Hopsital,” tweeted Dr. Lucas Collazo with a photo of the staff and the actress. “You are a true Wonder Woman. The kids loved it…and so did the staff.”
