Gadot suffers spine injuries
Los Angeles: Actor Gal Gadot walked away from the set of the upcoming Wonder Woman sequel with a few "spine injuries" after struggling to say no to performing her own stunts for director Patty Jenkins.
Gadot reprises her role as Amazonian warrior princess Diana Prince and her titular alter ego in Wonder Woman 1984, which features the star pulling off a number of high-octane action sequences, reports aceshowbiz.com.
Professionals from the Cirque du Soleil entertainment troupe were called in to tackle the more dangerous stunts, but many of the cuts fans will see onscreen are all Gadot.
"We shut down Penn Ave. in Washington D C, which was just (by) itself incredible. And then we had wires, rigs, for kilometers, for miles, so I can run in the same speed that Usain Bolt ran in the Olympics."
Although Gadot is proud of her work, she says she really suffered for her art to help bring Jenkins' vision to life.
Gadot and Jenkins kicked off the promotional tour for the superhero blockbuster at this weekend's (December 08) Comic Con Expo in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where fans were treated to the debut of the movie's first full trailer.
