Actress Gal Gadot (of The Fast and Furious fame) recreated history in England yesterday – for her upcoming Wonder Woman movie.

Three hundred extras joined her, dressed in period costume, many wearing military uniform; as London’s Trafalgar Square remained closed for five hours to recreate scenes which celebrated the Armistice following World War 1.

The celebratory atmosphere was also recreated with flags being merrily waved, and walls being adorned with bunting.

The only vehicles that traveled through Trafalgar Square for that five hours were vintage cars and trucks.

As well as Gal Gadot (who plays Diana Prince/Wonder Woman in the forthcoming movie), another actress that was spotted filming was Lucy Davis. Lucy has starred in Ugly Betty and is famous in the UK for her role as Dawn in the British version of The Office.

Lucy was dressed for the role of Etta Candy, who is Diana’s best friend and looked almost unrecognizable, sporting short curly red hair.

The new Wonder Woman movie has been a long time in the making, it was first reported as being in development twenty years ago! It will also star Ewen Bremner of Trainspotting fame and Danny Huston, known for many movies including The Constant Gardener.

The movie will follow the story of Amazonian warrior princess, Diana/Wonder Woman, who leaves her tropical island to live in the city. She earns different special powers and is a super-hero.

Other filming locations for the movie include France and Craco, located in the Basilicata region in Southern Italy.

Wonder Woman will hit our screens June 2017. But to whet your appetite before this, she will also appear in the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice movie, which will also feature The Flash and Aquaman.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is in theaters March 25 2016.
