While the team was doing press meetings, Gadot had a major hernia in her back and was severely limited in what she could do.

Unfortunately, her injuries didn’t end there, the actress opened up that she also hurt her neck and her shoulder filming Wonder Woman 1984. She revealed, “It is what it is. It’s such a physical role, like the physicality is another character that I have to play. But it has its toll.”
