The biggest name in the DCEU is taking a little break from being the cornerstone to Warner Bros’ comic book franchise to have a little fun with Disney. The studio announced today that Gadot will be playing the role of Shank, a tough as nails street racer, very much in the style of the Fast and Furious films. Here’s what Disney had to say about the role:

Ralph and Vanellope encounter Shank and her unusual cohorts when they venture to the internet in search of a replacement part for Vanellope’s game, Sugar Rush. Shank, a tough-as-nails street racer, takes her role and her tricked-out car very seriously and doesn’t like to lose. When Vanellope finds herself in a street race with Shank, her Sugar Rush driving skills are put to the test—and Shank is impressed. “She is the coolest character in this world of Slaughter Race,” said director Rich Moore. “Shank’s lived a lot, she’s seen a lot, yet she’s got nothing but kindness in her heart—that’s the duality of that character.”
