At Rhode Island Comic-Con, Gal Gadot discussed her first time in the ‘Wonder Woman’ costume for ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’.
“Tight. Very, very, very, very tight. The very-very first time I tried the costume on was three days after I got cast. And they flew me to Michigan, and I got into this huge hangar. Huge, with tons of white walls covered with posters of me as Wonder Woman. I got into the room and I couldn’t stop looking at the posters.
And then, when they wanted me to try on the costume—because I was so excited that they cast me for the role—I couldn’t say anthing; I couldn’t breathe, but I was like, ‘That’s okay. That’s fine.’ It was really-really tight, and we adjusted it. And I love the costume. I think, it complements Wonder Woman very much so, as being the greatest warrior out there. And now it’s much more comfortable.”
Over on GMP, it was also revealed how Gadot reacted to meeting the first live-action ‘Wonder Woman’, Lynda Carter.
“I saw Lynda, so I couldn’t keep my coolness…I was like, ‘Lynda, oh my God, I’m so happy to see you, to meet you, finally’. My English got completely broken for a second there…I’m not surprised, you know, it’s very clear to me why she was the very first Wonder Woman to be cast, because she is such an inspiring, beautiful, happy, funny, strong confident woman who immediately makes you, you know she makes you feel comfortable around her, and she’s eye level, she’s great.”
‘Wonder Woman’ comes to theaters on June 2nd, 2017
