Wonder Woman's Movie: What We Know So Far
Gal GadotWe may not know how Zack Snyder will use Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but we do know who will be playing her. Israelian beauty Gal Gadot landed the part back in December 2013, Zack Snyder stating at the time, "Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe. Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character."
Some audiences discovered Gadot already. She played Gisele in the last three Fast & Furious movies, and had parts in Date Night and Knight & Day. But there’s no question that Wonder Woman will be the biggest role the actress has ever attempted. So, how many times will she attempt it?
Her ContractAt the time of her signing, it was confirmed that Gadot has inked a three-picture deal with Warner Bros. that will begin with Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Of course, we also now know that the two other movies will be the solo Wonder Woman film and Justice League.
The interesting hitch in this is that we already know a second Justice League movie is on the table, with Justice League Part 2 being confirmed for 2019. Does this mean that the sequel won’t feature Wonder Woman? Or is Warner Bros. not willing to totally bank on Gadot and extend her contract until they find out what audiences think of her portrayal in Batman v Superman? At this point we have way more questions than answers.
