Reflecting on the success of Wonder Woman, she shared that as long as a story is universal, it has the potential to be successful. She saw an opportunity for a female-protagonist action movie that was gritty, raw, and grounded, rather than polished and fantastical like traditional superhero movies.

Gal shares, “I recall talking to Francis Ford Coppola, and I asked him, ‘So how does it feel to be a national treasure?'” She hopes that viewers will be thrilled by the movie. “Our aim was to create a thrilling and captivating experience that keeps people on the edge of their seats. We didn’t want to produce a story where the ending can be easily predicted.” Gal explains that she sought to avoid drawing too much inspiration from other sources. The team aimed to craft an original piece that stands out from other productions such as Mission Impossible and Bond films.
