Ever since gracing the screen in this year’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Diana Prince/Wonder Woman has quickly become everybody’s favourite ass-kicker. 2017 marks the first time Wonder Woman will be featured in her own standalone film. The role will again be portrayed by Gal Gadot, who won many naysayers over with her wonderful appearance in Dawn of Justice. In an interview discussing her latest film, Keeping Up with the Joneses, We Got This Covered asked the actress what she thought some essential qualities of Wonder Woman were, and why the character is so important in this day and age.
“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.”
In a world which is so violent, and belittling to women, it comes with a great sigh of relief that we finally have a superhero film showcasing the quite and subtle side of Wonder Woman. It is incredible that Gadot understands the character so well, and a perfect response for people who were extremely against her casting when she was announced. The Wonder Woman film will of course be directed by Patty Jenkins, who directed Charlize Theron to her Oscar win with Monster.
What do you guys think of this? Are you excited to see Wonder Woman? You can catch Gal Gadot in her latest film Keeping Up with the Joneses, which is in theatres now.
