The Israeli actress appeared at the Inova Children’s Hospital in Annandale, Virginia, in full costume, complete with headpiece, arm cuffs and thigh-high boots. She posed for photos and talked to the patients and staff, who eagerly shared images of the visit on social media.

The hospital’s own Twitter account posted: “We are so honored that #WonderWoman stopped by to visit the kids and caregivers at #InovaChildrensHospital! Thank you . #ForTheKids.”

For the past month, Gadot has been filming in Virginia and in Washington, DC, for the sequel to the smash hit Wonder Woman – which is due out November 1, 2019.
