Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters next week. Hype is amping up and more information is consistently being brought forward on the lead up to release. The Wonder Woman actress, Gal Gadot, recently sat down with IGN and spoke about changes in the character movie-goers can expect to see between BvS and the Wonder Woman standalone.
When asked about Diana’s view of the modern world in the 21st century, especially in regards to caped and masked heroes running around, Gadot spoke of the Princess’ “mixed feelings.” The Amazonian demigoddess may not be completely comfortable with the how the world’s changed. “She has a lot of acceptance for the way things are. She hoped it would be different, but she’s not sure how much she wants to get involved.”
In discussing what she’s learned from Dawn of Justice and how it has informed her experience in shooting her solo film, the actress said the biggest difference for her has been the “opposite” nature of the process.
“Usually you start with the beginning and then you reach the end; we started later and then we went backwards. So basically the Wonder Woman that you’re gonna see in Batman v Superman is different than the Wonder Woman that you’ll see in the standalone movie. In that way that she is… in the standalone movie, we are telling the story of Diana becoming Wonder Woman. And in BvS, she’s been around for many years, she’s super experienced, darker, and she understands the complexities of life.”
The changes in her character are sure to be interesting. With the character finally getting her much anticipated big screen debut, fans just want to see the beloved heroine depicted properly. Her move from learning to be Wonder Woman, to being a darker more experienced warrior sounds like the perfect way of introducing a character that everyone knows, but few understand.
What are your thoughts on getting the experienced heroine first and rookie Wonder Woman a year later? Let us know in the comments below.
Batman v Superman is in theaters March 25 and the Wonder Woman standalone will jump start the Amazon’s origins on June 23, 2017.
