Attention all Super Bowl LI watchers, football fans and friends of fans alike, there is some urgent business we must attend to, and that's the Wix commercial with Jason Statham. Yes, this year's Super Bowl commercials for Wix.com, a website building tool, are bringing you a mini action film starring Statham himself. And, if you don't recognize the woman starring opposite him in the Super Bowl Wix commercial, then you're in need of some serious education. The actress in the Wix commercial with Statham is your new Wonder Woman, and you should really learn her name, if you haven't already.
Gal Gadot is the name of the badass beating up thugs in a dress and heels in the new Super Bowl spot. If she looks familiar, it's because she already made her Wonder Woman debut in 2016's monster hit, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and co-starred in a handful of Fast & Furious films. But, most importantly, she's the actor entrusted with playing the first female superhero lead in the modern wave of superhero films. Neither DC nor Marvel have attempted to launch a solely female-starring superhero franchise until now. Wonder Woman hits theaters on June 2, 2017, and if you don't know Gadot's name now, you best learn it by then.
Gadot (the "t" is not silent) was previously known as an Israeli actor and model, until she got the role of Wonder Woman and broke through in America. Since Batman v Superman's release, she's pretty much earned the title of Wonder Woman for the rest of her life. But that also isn't an excuse not to learn her real name. So, here it is one more time: Gal Gadot. You're going to want to remember that.
