The only thing better than one Wonder Woman is two.
“Saturday Night Live” got a double dose of everyone’s favorite Amazonian superhero Saturday when host Gal Gadot was joined onstage by the Times Square Wonder Woman, played by Leslie Jones.
Gadot — who famously portrayed Diana in this summer’s blockbuster “Wonder Woman” — was midway through her opening monologue when Jones appeared, decked out in full costume.
Despite the fact that one character is the product of Hollywood, and the other likely just the product of a solid costume store, Jones was quick to point out the similarities between both versions of the character.
Times Square Wonder Woman (Leslie Jones) visited Gal Gadot during her opening monologue.
“You know how you take pictures with young girls who look up to you? I do the same with German tourists,” she said.
And that lasso of truth Wonder Woman boasts? Jones has one of those too: vodka.
The comedian also called out the notoriously creepy Times Square Elmo character.

“Elmo is a freak. Any time you see one of his costume arms just hanging down all limp, it’s up to something,” she joked, before later taking a selfie with Gadot and — like any good Times Square street performer — asking for $ 5.
Gadot’s first hosting gig on NBC’s long running sketch show proved a success, and luckily for her, the Israeli-born actress’ friends and family were able to tune in from halfway across the world.
“Saturday Night Live” was broadcast live in Israel for the first time this weekend, and Gadot said a special few words in Hebrew for those listening at home.
“I just wanted to let you know this might be a big mistake: The writers here clearly know nothing about Israel,” she said, with her words accompanied by subtitles. “In every sketch they have me eating hummus. I mean, I like hummus, but come on.”
