Get Your Action-Movie Fix

Loved Gal Gadot-starrer Wonder Woman? These action-packed movies should be next on your watch-list.
Following Wonder Woman, Gadot’s next appearance as the Amazonian was as an ally to her friend Batman (Ben Affleck), as he and other major DC players come together to (what else?) save Earth. The ensemble features other favorite characters like Superman (Henry Cavill), The Flash (Ezra Miller), and Aquaman (Game of Thrones’ Jason Momoa), and the supporting cast list — Amy Adams, J.K. Simmons, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons and Ciarán Hinds — isn’t shabby either.

Fast & Furious
Gadot had a recurring role in the The Fast and the Furious franchise playing drug courier Gisele Yashar. Known for its thrill-seeking plots and gripping chase sequences, this sequel gets bonus points for featuring all of the series’ main original cast members, including Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez and Vin Diesel.

Hugh Jackman takes his final — and most compelling — turn as X-Men’s Wolverine in this edgy and emotional film. The only Wolverine movie to be rated R, it earns it with action and fight choreography finally worthy of the iconic comic-book character. Additionally, Logan introduces X-23, a small but deadly young woman with incredible powers (and a character to keep on your radar).
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword
Wonder Woman’s backstory is rooted in mythology, so if you’re looking for another movie that takes an action spin on the classics, director Guy Ritchie’s interpretation of the Camelot legend is sure to please. The cast includes Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy), Jude Law (The Young Pope), and Eric Bana (Troy), and allows you to get your literary history on while feeling thoroughly entertained.
