Israeli actress Gal Gadot, who gained global fame as the star of Wonder Woman, will be hosting an episode of Saturday Night Live in its upcoming 43rd season, NBC announced Thursday.

Wonder Woman is also the first live action movie directed by a woman to gross over $400 million in the United States and $800 million worldwide.

The long running sketch comedy show also announced that Kumail Nanjiani will be joined by musical guest P!nk when he hosts for the first time on October 14. The series announced its first few hosts, and the lineup looks promising. Nanjiani stars in HBO's "Silicon Valley" and recently released the critically acclaimed film "The Big Sick". While we all know that Gadot is a fierce and wonderful actress, some people may not realize how amusing she can be, too.

Earlier, it was announced that actor Ryan Gosling will host the show's season premiere with rapper Jay-Z as the musical guest.
