The Wonder Woman comics recently made news when one of the writers made the unambiguous statement that the character was in fact bisexual. So could we see a female love interest fo the character on the big screen? While Gal Gadot has said there was no discussion about the character being bisexual for the first film, that doesn't mean it couldn't become a thing in the sequel. The actress who plays Wonder Woman on-screen says that if she's going to get a same-sex love interest in a future movie, she's got the perfect actress in mind.
Last month Wonder Woman comic book writer Greg Rucka made headlines when he stated unequivocally that Diana had certainly had relationships with women in the past within the context of her living on an island inhabited only by women. While we know from comments that Gal Gadot herself has made, that we won't see anything like that in the upcoming Wonder Woman movie, Batman News recently translated the actress' recent appearance on the Israeli show Good Night with Guy Pines. She told them that she would open to such a thing, and even name dropped somebody who could work opposite her.
Based on Gal Gadot's facial expression when she gives the answer (since I can't understand what she's actually saying) the actress appears to be completely serious with her comments. She's not simply making a comment about a beautiful actress that she'd like to work with. When Gadot made her comments following the revelation that Wonder Woman was bisexual, she seemed to be very supportive and understanding of the concept as a whole. It's far too early to guess how the characters sexuality could be dealt with in future films, going forward it may not even be important enough to be part of the plot, but it would seem that if Warner Bros. wanted to go in that direction Gal Gadot is ready for it.
And there would certainly be worse choices than Halle Berry. She's an Academy Award-winning actress with significant experience within the comic book movie genre following her role as Storm in the X-Men films. She could probably use a bit of a reboot within the DC universe in order to help people forget about her turn as Catwoman so maybe a role in a future Wonder Woman film is the way to do that.
And there would be plenty of material in which to set up the relationship. The majority of Wonder Woman will take place during the first World War, but we've also seen her fighting alongside Batman and Superman in the modern day. Who knows what sorts of people she met, and fell in love with, in between?
What do you think? Would you like to see Halle Berry and Gal Gadot together in a future Wonder Woman movie? Let us know in the comments.
