Gal Gadot Almost Landed THIS Part in ‘Man of Steel’

Gal Gadot revealed in a recent interview with the Hebrew website Xnet that she was offered a chance to play a different role in the DC Extended Universe that would have disqualified her from the running to play Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. That role was none other than Faora in Man of Steel, the memorable and fierce female Krytonian that ended up being played by Antje Traue. Faora proved to be a scene stealer in the movie, but would that had been the case had Gadot played the role instead?

When I was a month pregnant with (my daughter) Alma, I got an offer to be the evil Superman character. If I wasn’t pregnant I’d take the job, and there’s no way they would take me now to be Wonder Woman.

Batman News originally translated the excerpt of what Gadot had to say from Xnet’s article from Hebrew to English for our readers to understand what was said.

What do you think? Would you have liked to see Gadot as Faora instead, or are you happy with her as Wonder Woman? Sound off in the comments below and let us know!
