Los Angeles - Gal Gadot felt like she was "working with the CIA" during the making of in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The 30-year-old actress has been cast in the role of Wonder Woman in the much-anticipated new movie, and she's admitted the casting process was a "crazy" experience.

The Israeli beauty told Total Film magazine: "It's been a long process. It started when I was back in Los Angeles and I was told I had a very important audition for a Warner Bros production, but no one said it was.

"After a month or two months, they called me and said that they wanted to test me for this movie. It's crazy, because you feel like you're working with the CIA because everything is so confidential.

"And then, a week later, Zack Synder called me. He said, 'OK, I'm not sure you have it in Israel or how big it is in Israel, but have you heard of Wonder Woman?'"

Gal admitted she was shocked and delighted to have been offered the iconic role.

She recalled: "My jaw literally dropped. I died for a few seconds, then I went back to life. Then I tried to get back my coolest voice, and not talk like I'm shaky and overwhelmed."
