Fast & Furious actress Gal Gadot is already nailing down the boldness she’ll be expected to impart in her role as Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel sequel, as she’s straight up dropping big info on her role as the iconic Amazonian; at least so far as cash and contracts are concerned.
Via Batman-News, in a story reported on Good Evening With Gai Pines, a show in Gadot’s native Israel, we learn that Warner Bros will be ponying up $300,000 for her first appearance alongside Henry Cavill’s Superman and Ben Affleck’s Batman. What’s more, we get a solid starting date for filming, with Gadot saying the Man of Steel sequel gets rolling in May of this year. As noted previously by Variety, the film’s release date has been pushed to May 6, 2016.
She’s also stated that she’ll be reprising her role as Wonder Woman in at least three films, the first being the above mentioned sequel, and one logically being Justice League. If Warner Bros is still shooting for what seems like an increasingly unrealistic 2017 release of DC’s big screen superhero team up, we’ll prospectively see her in at least one more film post Justice League. More likely, however, Gadot will be donning the iconic WW garb in an accompanying film in support of another member of the eventual JLA crew.
Either way, it’s nice to see things beginning to gel in the DC Entertainment/Warner Bros camp. Can’t say I mind the delays, as this only means more time to choose the correct cast, refine story, and properly game-plan. You don’t want to come at Marvel and Disney half-baked.
