As usual, Gal Gadot is keeping it classy.

 

When asked what her thoughts were on Wonder Woman missing out on an Oscar nomination despite the superhero blockbuster earning major critical acclaim alongside box office success, the actress handled it with grace worthy of Princess Diana of Themyscira.

 

"I was very moved and touched by the people who were disappointed that Wonder Woman wasn't nominated, but we certainly never did the movie for that," Gadot told ET on Wednesday. "I think that you can't have it all. We've done this movie and it was received in such an amazing, wonderful way, and we want to stay humble and grateful, and we're going to have another movie, so who knows? Maybe the next one!"

 

Like her big-screen Amazonian alter ego, Gadot tells it like it is.

 

As for that highly anticipated sequel, Gadot will reprise her titular role in Wonder Woman 2, which will once again be directed by Patty Jenkins, who has been teasing tiny but characteristically cryptic tidbits about the follow-up. 

 

“[I]t’s got great fun from the start, and great big ‘superhero’ presence from the start — and is funny, and a great love story again,” she said in an interview with Variety. "“And [there are] a couple new unbelievable characters who I’m so excited about — who are very different than were in the last movie.”

 

The sequel will also break new ground: In the wake of the #MeToo movement, Wonder Woman 2 has become the first film to adopt the Producers Guild of America's new sexual harassment policy.

 

Wonder Woman's next adventure is expected to begin filming sometime later this year for a Nov. 1, 2019 release.
