Fast and Furious 4: More than ten years ago, Gal Gadot, alias Wonder Woman, found her first film role in “Fast and Furious 4”, broadcast this evening on TF1 Séries Films.
Released in 2009, the fourth installment of the engine franchise sees Dominic Toretto and Brian O’Conner reunite and join forces against a common enemy … If the film marks the return of the duo formed by Vin Diesel and Paul Walker, it is also the first steps in the cinema of a certain Gal gadot, future Wonder woman.
The actress is chosen to take part in Fast and Furious 4 in 2008. She plays Gisele Harabo, the girlfriend of drug dealer Arturo Braga (John Ortiz) giving the heroes a hard time. This rather important character will eventually join Vin Diesel and his gang in the following episodes, Fast and Furious 5 and 6.
For the anecdote, Gal Gadot had been rejected from the cast of Quantum of Solace in favor of Olga Kurylenko before trying her luck in that of Fast and Furious 4.
The career of the Israeli takes a new turn. At the end of 2013, she was selected to lend her features to Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman (2016). In 2017, the heroine DC is entitled to her own feature film, which is a big commercial success since it brings in close to 820 million dollars internationally.
Gal Gadot resumed his character in Justice League the same year, bringing together Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and Flash. She will also be at the helm of a second solo film via Wonder Woman 1984, the sequel to the adventures of the super-heroine (for the moment scheduled for December 30).
At its release, Fast and Furious 4 achieves a nice score at the box office ($ 363 million in worldwide revenue for a budget of 85) and relaunched the franchise. In 2011, Fast and Furious 5 enjoyed greater success (630 million) and marked the arrival of an actor who became one of the pillars of the saga, Dwayne Johnson.
