With the Man of Steel (Henry Cavill) grappling to find a balance between living with humans and embracing his own culture and the Caped Crusader (Ben Affleck) continuing to exorcise his demons, Wonder Woman is cut from an entirely different cloth. Though she is a warrior beyond measure, Wonder Woman is filled with compassion, and Gal Gadot says that quality is a huge reason for her strength.
