According to co-director and co-writer Phil Johnston, Gadot adds an extraordinary dimension to the character. Today, we have a first look at her character, fittingly called Shank.
A new photo from the upcoming Wreck-It Ralph sequel, Ralph Breaks the Internet, shows 10 of our favorite heroines hanging out with Vanellope in comfy clothes.
Ralph Breaks the Internet will crash into theaters on November 21.
The video Gadot posted, along with the image of Shank, teases the plot of the movie, which involves the online racing game "Slaughter Race".More news: Liverpool Star Urges Reds To Show Pre-Season Results Against West Ham

Ralph Breaks the Internet finds the burly Ralph (John C. Reilly) and sugary sweet best friend Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) sucked into the internet, where they come across the Siri-like know-it-all Yesss (Taraji P. Henson) and cross paths with tough-as-nails racer Shank (Gadot).
There's also some new footage of the highly anticipated horde of Disney princesses who will join the cast, thanks to its trademark blending of Disney-owned universes. Shank, a tough-as-nails street racer, takes her role and her tricked-out auto very seriously and doesn't like to lose.
"She is the coolest character in this world of 'Slaughter Race, '" director Rich Moore said. The description hints that Shank's role will be more than just a cameo as she races Vanellope and then develops a big sister-like relationship with her. He also stated that he "can't imagine anyone else" other than Gadot "embodying that part". Shank's approach to racing soon Vanellope's eyes to the awesome, limitless possibilities of the internet, along with the excitement of a new world that feels like home to her.
Personally, I'm more excited about the racing aspect. With all the publicity surrounding the various Disney properties showing up, I was kind of anxious that the gaming aspect would be lost.
