If Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman impressed during her limited screentime in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, then you can imagine our excitement to see the actress’ Amazonian Warrior spread her wings in next year’s standalone film.
Headed up by Patty Jenkins, filming is currently underway on the hotly-anticipated spinoff, which is primed to introduce moviegoers to the fictional isle of Themyscira and Diana Prince’s warrior allies – namely Queen Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen), General Antiope (Robin Wright) and Menalippe (Lisa Loven Kongsli).

But during a recent interview with Digital Spy, Gadot offered new insight into the core tone of Jenkins’ feature film. It’s become something of a hot-button topic since Dawn of Justice launched into theaters late last month, and while Gadot noted that Wonder Woman is still “pretty dark,” there will be “moments of humor” peppered throughout the origins story.
“In Batman v Superman, you get a glimpse of who she is but not where she comes from, ” said Gadot. She continued, “In Wonder Woman, this would be the first time we ever tell the coming-of-age story of how Diana becomes Wonder Woman. It’s very interesting. It has moments of humor, but it’s pretty dark.”
With segments of the movie set to take place before the events of Batman V Superman, Gadot went on to say that we’ll be seeing a much more “naive” Diana Prince come 2017.
“We all saw before the beautiful coming of age of Batman, Spider-Man, Superman. We don’t know anything about Wonder Woman.” Gadot went on to add that this Wonder Woman is a 100-years younger and much more “naive”.
In light of Warner Bros.’ internal switcheroo, Wonder Woman has been bumped from its original June 23, 2017 due date, after the studio brought the Patty Jenkins-directed movie forward to June 2.
