Gal Gadot already has one iconic butt-kicking female role to her credit, as ‘Wonder Woman’, but is she about to add another? She lends her voice to the upcoming Disney sequel ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ as Shank, the lead character in a violent driving game called ‘Slaughter Race’. Of course, lead character Vanellope Von Schweetz (voiced by Sarah Silverman) also stars in her own racing game, ‘Sugar Rush’ and it is the quest to find a replacement steering wheel that leads her and Ralph (John C. Reilly) into the new realm of the Internet.
It seems that underneath Shank’s bruiser exterior is someone nurturing and wise and in this new clip from ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’, she is shown offering some guidance to Vanellope that appears to have come to a fork in the road, which may drive her away from Ralph.
Check out this new Shank-centric trailer, shared by Gadot via Instagram below:
Gadot’s Shank is just one of several newcomers in this sequel. Her competitors in ‘Slaughter Race’include Hamish Blake as Pyro, Ali Wong as Felony, GloZell Green as Little Debbie, and Timothy Simons as Butcher Boy. Taraji P. Henson also joins as Yesss, an algorithm who determines the hottest trending videos on BuzzTube, while Flula Borg portrays her assistant Maybe. Alfred Molina depicts Dark Dan, a creature from the Dark Web, while Alan Tudyk portrays KnowsMore, a search engine.
Returning alongside Reilly and Silverman, from the first film, are Jane Lynch as Sergeant Calhoun, Jack McBrayer as Fix-It Felix Jr. and Ed O’Neill as Stan Litwak, the owner of the arcade that houses their respective home video games.
‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ breaks onto theater screens on November 20.
