FALLS CHURCH, Va. — Movie star Gal Gadot surprised children at a Virginia hospital with a superhero moment: She visited them wearing her iconic Amazonian armor costume from the “Wonder Woman” film.

Gadot doled out hugs, kisses, and autographs Friday at Inova Children’s Hospital in northern Virginia. She posed for photos with patients and staffers, and those started popping up on social media over the weekend.

One mom, Kelly Sahady of Sterling, posted photos of Gadot holding her 7-month-old daughter. Sahady told WUSA-TV her daughter, Karalyne, is fighting an aggressive form of pediatric cancer called acute myeloid leukemia. She said meeting Gadot was a fun break.
