Production has wrapped on the Wonder Woman solo movie starring Gal Gadot, and is set to release in August of next year. There’s a lot of anticipation for the movie and the character after her scene-stealing role in Batman V Superman. As Gal Gadot notes in an interview with Sci Now though, that’s not the Wonder Woman we’ll see in the film. At least, not at first.
“In Batman V Superman, you are being introduced to a very experienced, dark Wonder Woman,” Gadot said. “She has been around for a while. Something happened 100 years ago that made her not want to be involved in a man’s world. However, we are going to tell the entire coming of age story of Diana. We’re going to see how she becomes Wonder Woman. She is very different to the Diana that you see in [Dawn Of Justice]. She is more naïve and she’s purer. She is a young idealist who does not yet understand the complexities of life.”
Gadot states though that enough this is set in WWI, and has plenty of action, Diana is the heart and soul of the film, and the story will show that.
“I think that the heart of the movie is about the coming of age of Diana,” she added. “Diana is so passionate about life and she is so passionate about love and truth and justice – and she is very inspiring, even to me. One of the reasons why Patty Jenkins agreed to do this movie was because of the core story. The action is fantastic. You will have action – but we have a very, very solid story to tell.”
