Gal Gadot smolders in the new trailer for Wonder Woman, where she plays the Amazonian princess Diana Prince.

Gadot, a former model and Miss Israel, shared the new poster for “Wonder Woman,” which hits theaters in 2017.

“Dream come true!” Gal wrote in the caption to her Instagram photo (see above). “Happy to finally share this with you all ???⚔

The 5-foot-1o Gadot gained weight to play Wonder Woman after fans initially slammed her as too skinny and unathletic-looking to pull off the role, Celebrity Health Fitness reported.

“I gained a lot of body mass after I was first cast in the role,” said Gal. “Now I lift a lot of weights. I feel much stronger then I was. I feel good.”

While most models and actresses dread gaining weight, Gadot now embraces her fuller figure and muscles.

“I started out very, very skinny and because I gained body mass, I really enjoy the way my body looks, better then I did before,” said Gal. “I enjoy the curves. I enjoy the strength, the back, the guns.”

Weightlifting can help women get the lean, toned bikini body they always wanted without looking bulky or masculine, said Michael Matthews, author of Thinner Leaner Stronger.

Lifting weights can slow down and even reverse the aging process by preserving lean muscle mass, enhancing brain function, and boosting antioxidant enzyme activity, said Cassandra Forsythe, author of Lift Like a Man, Look Like a Goddess.

In addition to weight training, Gal does yoga and Pilates workouts.

Pilates strengthens your core and gives you long, lean muscles, said fitness expert Cassey Ho, author of Hot Body Year Round.

Gal Gadot is a former Miss Israel best known for her role as Gisele in three “Fast & Furious” movies.

Gal, 31, served two years in the Israeli military as a fitness trainer. “Wonder Woman” premieres in theaters in June 2017.
