Gal Gadot Says Wonder Woman Stands For Love, Justice And Compassion


Thanks to a cracking debut in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, moviegoers have already been acquainted with Gal Gadot’s Amazonian Warrior. Indeed, the cameo role – however small – was considered by many to be one of the few highlights to be pulled from Zack Snyder’s divisive tentpole, which positions Wonder Woman quite nicely for her long-anticipated 2017 solo outing.

Headed up by director Patty Jenkins, it’s the next film to be released under Warner’s DC Extended Universe and the final picture before that all-important Justice League movie. No pressure, then. But if Gal Gadot is feeling the heat, she isn’t showing it.

Sitting down with We Got This Covered to chat about her role in Keeping Up with the Joneses, Greg Mottola’s starry actioner, Gadot took some time to speak about her upcoming turn donning the Lasso of Truth. And so, when asked about the tone of Wonder Woman and how it compares to previous entries in the DC Extended Universe – Dawn of Justice in particular – Gadot replied as so:

“Wonder Woman is different. On this film, we went back to Diana’s backstory – to her history, her coming of age. How did Diana become Wonder Woman? But with this character, what I love about her so much is that her agenda is love. It’s not about fighting, it’s not about who is stronger than whom; it’s not about women versus men. It’s about love, and acceptance of others. She stands for love, justice and compassion.”

Wonder Woman will release in theaters on June 2, 2017 when Gadot will be flanked by Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, David Thewlis, Danny Huston and Elena Anaya. As for Keeping Up with the Joneses, following its UK release back in April, those in the US can expect the action comedy to hit their shores on October 21.
