Gal Gadot may not have actual superpowers but she definitely has a big heart. The Wonder Woman star, who is filming sequel Wonder Woman 1984 in Washington, DC, and northern Virginia, surprised kids at a Virginia children's hospital by turning up in costume, the Daily Dot reports. "The kids loved it ... and so did the staff," tweeted Dr. Lucas Collazo at the Inova Children's Hospital in Falls Church, sharing a photo of the Israeli star posing with staff members. "You are a true Wonder Woman," he wrote. The hotly anticipated sequel, which also brings back co-star Chris Pine, is due out on Nov. 1 next year, the Hollywood Reporter notes.
