Gal Gadot became a movie star this summer when Wonder Woman took the world by storm. She’s on the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone and she spoke about the rumors that are going around about Justice League. She was not impressed with the rumors and brushed off everyone’s worries about the reshoots.
“Look,” she says. “Joss, to my understanding, was Zack’s choice to finish the movie. And the tone can’t be completely different because the movie was already shot. Joss is just fine-tuning.”
Gadot also spoke at the phenomenon that her and director Patty Jenkins got to be part of this summer as Wonder Woman took the world by storm.
What neither Gadot nor Jenkins could have foreseen is how their careful deliberations would resonate. “Even at some early test screenings, women were coming to me afterward and saying, ‘I feel like you made a movie for me!’ ” says Jenkins. “But it wasn’t until the second week that the movement started, people going multiple times and taking girlfriends and grandmothers, and pictures sent to me from 90-year-old women who were wheeled in. All of that was absolutely stunning to see.” Gadot agrees. “I definitely think that 75 years is a long time for this character to not have a movie, but it’s craaaaaaaazy,” she says of the film’s reception, of the all-female viewings held around the country, of the grade-school boys coming to class with Wonder Woman swag, and of her role in all that.
We’ll be seeing Gadot return to the DCEU this November at Diana Prince and the sequel in December of 2019.
