There have been so many films this year that have been postponed or even taken off the slate entirely due to the health concerns surrounding COVID-19.

That's why we're so happy to see a big production like "Wonder Woman 1984" finally hitting the big screen where it's allowed later this week, as well as being available to stream on HBO Max.

Because we can't contain our excitement, it's pretty clear this week's must-stream movies have to be ones that star the Amazonian Goddess herself, Gal Gadot.

    Landing itself as the 10th highest-grossing film of 2017 and the highest-grossing film by a female director ever, this one gives audiences everything needed for the best female superhero movie yet! Gadot is absolutely spectacular in the film, and the project gave a much-needed resurgence to the DC universe, since the sheer number of Marvel movies they'd been competing with the last several years had been tough to combat.

    Wonder Woman

    Action / 2017 / PG-13

    Before she was Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, Diana meets an American pilot (Chris Pine) who tells her about the massive conflict that's raging in the outside world. Convinced that she can stop the threat, Diana leaves her home for the first time. Fighting alongside men in a war to end all wars, she finally discovers her full powers and true destiny.

    Though Gadot only lends her voice to this film, she does an incredible job helping to bring this animated project to life on the racetrack. We've seen Gadot bring a larger-than-life charisma as an actress in live-action, and that spark's just as entertaining in the A-class Disney cartoon space.

    Ralph Breaks the Internet

    Animated / 2018 / PG

    Video game bad guy Ralph and fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz must risk it all by traveling to the World Wide Web in search of a replacement part to save Vanellope's video game, "Sugar Rush." In way over their heads, Ralph and Vanellope rely on the citizens of the internet -- the netizens -- to help navigate their way, including an entrepreneur named Yesss, who is the head algorithm and the heart and soul of trend-making site BuzzzTube.

    If we were to pick the movie where Gadot has the most swagger, along with every man wrapped around her finger, then this one's it. The film acts as her introduction into the "Fast and Furious" universe where she first meets up to join Dom's team, but with her can-do attitude and skills, you'd think she'd been a part of the gang since the beginning.

    Fast Five

    Action / 2011 / PG-13

    Ever since ex-cop Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) and Mia Torretto (Jordana Brewster) broke her brother Dom (Vin Diesel) out of custody, they've traveled border to border to evade authorities. In Rio de Janeiro, they must do one final job before they can gain their freedom for good. Assembling their elite team of car racers, Brian and Dom know they must confront the corrupt businessman who wants them dead, before the federal agent (Dwayne Johnson) on their trail finds them.
