Ever since Gal Gadot stole the show in Zack Snyder’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) with her character Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, she has gained a massive following and is one of the most sought-after actresses in Hollywood. After appearing in 2 Wonder Woman films, Gadot’s starred in Red Notice (2021), which became the most streamed Netflix movie. The talented actress appeared in the 2022 Kenneth Branagh film Death on the Nile.
What’s even more exciting is that there are multiple future projects she is about to star in. For example, she will be in another Netflix film called Heart of Stone (2023), where she will play Rachel Stone alongside Jamie Dornan, who will portray a man named Parker. Although the details of the film are still vague, we are already excited.
In 2024, Gal Gadot will be playing in a Disney film, Snow White, whose screenplay is written by Greta Gerwig (known for directing Lady Bird, Little Women, and the upcoming Barbie movie) and Erin Cressida Wilson (screenwriter of Chloe and The Girl on the Train). In the film, we will see Gadot as the Evil Queen.
Out of all upcoming Gal Gadot movies, we’re the most excited for Cleopatra, where she will play the titular character. The film will be directed by Kari Skogland, who has been a director for many well-known TV series such as The Handmaid’s Tale (2017-2018), The Walking Dead (2016-2017), and The Americans (2016).
Now, it is time to focus on Gadot’s past and see which of her performances were the best and which were the worst. Here are 5 Gal Gadot performances ranked from best to worst.
1. Wonder Woman
Wonder Woman (2017) is not only Gadot’s best performance but also her best movie in terms of critical success. As the Batman v. Superman director Zack Snyder mentioned, Gadot has this magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. Read any reviews about the film. You will not see a single one without any praise for Gadot, who plays the iconic role with incredible charisma and extraordinary talent. So, definitely, Wonder Woman is the best of Gal Gadot movies and performances.
2. Fast and Furious 4
Although most people know the Israeli actress from Wonder Woman, her 1st international appearance was in Fast and Furious, the 4th film in the Fast & Furious franchise. She plays a woman named Gisele Yashar, someone who works for a Mexican drug lord called Arturo Braga. Yashar also helps Dominic Toretto’s (Vin Diesel) team and forms a romantic relationship with Han Lue (Sung Kang). The same character reappears in Fast Five (2011) and Fast & Furious 6 (2013).
Most critics praised Gadot for her portrayal of Yashar despite her character being thought to be poorly written. She performed all of her own stunts and did her best with the script she was given.

3. Batman v. Superman
Batman v. Superman is the 1st movie where we are introduced to Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, and this is the movie where her portrayal convinced everyone that she would be great in her own solo movie. Despite having limited screen time in the film, most people commented about her stealing the show and being the center of attention, even though she was not one of the lead characters. Although critics tore down the film, Gadot’s performance was praised nonetheless.
4. Death on the Nile
The most recent of Gal Gadot performances was in Death on the Nile, the adaptation of Agatha Christie’s 1937 novel of the same name. Gadot plays Linnet “Linny” Ridgeway Doyle, a wealthy heiress. This film is one of those star-studded movies where every actor shines as much as the other so it is safe to say Gadot’s performance was outstanding, just like the other actors in the film, such as Kenneth Branagh, Annette Bening, Tom Bateman, Rose Leslie, and more.
5. Red Notice
Of all the Gal Gadot movies in this article, Red Notice is probably the worst. Don’t get us wrong. This is not due to Gadot’s performance at all. She does a pretty good job playing a mysterious robber called The Bishop. But as most reviewers point out, the cast members Ryan Reynolds, Dwayne Johnson, and Gadot lack chemistry, which does not help the film, which already suffers from being generic and bland.
