There might be a division in people's views of the newly released Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, but what most people agree on is that even though Gal Gadot only had a handful of lines, she excels as the Amazonian warrior that is Wonder Woman.
Luckily for fans of the newest incarnation of Diana Prince / Wonder Woman, there won't be that long of a wait until one of the most iconic female superheroes debut in a solo film and according to Gadot, this solo movie will be different from what we've already seen from her.
"The Wonder Woman that you see in Batman v Superman is a woman who has been around," Gadot says of her character. "She's very experienced. She understands a lot about men, wheras in the standalone movie we are telling the grown-up story, Diana becoming Wonder Woman."
The solo movie is expected to take place during World War I, meaning way before the show down of the DC Golden Trio against Doomsday, which is possibly reinforced by the picture Bruce discovers of Diana with some soldiers in Batman v Superman.
"[Diana is still] very pure. She's more naive, she's this young idealist who does not really understand the complexities of life and the complexities of men," Gadot said.
One could assume that the events of Wonder Woman won't end well, being that she has avoided humanity possibly since the picture was taken of her and before she ends up at Lex Luthor's party in Metropolis.
This movie will allow fans their first female superhero centered film since Elektra in 2005. It doesn't take the Lasso of Truth to realize that many are hopeful that this will finally give fans the female superhero movie we've been desperate for.
"This is such an iconic character," Gadot said, happily acknowledging the importance her upcoming portrayal of Wonder Woman. "It's as big as it gets for a woman. I certainly feel the responsibility. I think it's also super important that we're bringing such an inspiring, strong female role model for girls and boys to look up to. The more strong female role models we have, the better."
Wonder Woman will be debuting on June 23, 2017.
