Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman has been a smash hit, earning hundreds of millions of dollars at the box office and proving that, yes, women can and will create big-time Hollywood blockbusters. Much has been said about Jenkins, the film’s director, as well as the actress playing Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot. (Not to mention her sexy scene with co-star Chris Pine.) However, these accomplished ladies aren’t the only two figures leading the film. Indeed, as Entertainment Weekly notes, real-life female heroes like police officers, Olympic athletes, professional fighters, and more were called upon to act as the Amazons in the movie. Given their credentials, it’s easy to make the case that these women are more impressive off-camera than on the silver screen.
