Has it ever crossed your mind to meet a superhero in person? How much fun would it be to get to discuss every detail of how the movie was set, how it felt to be a superhero for at least some days. Well, some of the children in Inova Children Hospital in Annandale, Virginia got to experience this feeling.
Gal Gadot, dressed as her beloved alter ego Wonder Woman, paid a surprise visit to Inova Children’s Hospital in Falls Church, Virginia, on Friday where she cheered up young patients and met the facility’s staff.
Dr. Lucas Colazzo, a cardiac surgeon, tweeted on Friday; a Wonder Woman fan account on Twitter shared additional photos on Saturday.
“Thank you @GalGadot for visiting us @InovaHealth Children’s Hospital. You are a true Wonder Woman. The kids loved it…and so did the staff.”

The surprise visit comes as Gadot and the crew are filming Wonder Woman 1984, the sequel to the 2017 blockbuster, in the Washington, D.C., and Virginia area.
She also brought some gifts, including coloring books, toys, and autographed photos, to the little fighters.
Gadot is no stranger to child-affiliated charities and organizations.
Only last year, Gal Gadot took her time on working on a campaign for equality in education with a group called ‘Pencils of promise.’ She also gave her support to charities such as Philanthropy which is a fashion company that emphasizes child cancer research and donates a percentage of its proceeds to another Children’s Hospitals.
One of the film’s new additions is none other than Kristen Wiig, who will be portraying the villain, Cheetah, as well as her secret identity Barbara Minerva.
Gadot has posted photos of her character from the sequel as well. In one particularly mysterious image, Wonder Woman is looking at a bank of TVs, each playing something different from the era. All that’s visible of Gadot is her face’s reflection.
Wonder Woman 1984 arrives in theaters on Nov. 1, 2019.
