Fans of Wonder Woman might remember her live-action appearance in the Lynda Carter-led television series that was on the air until 1979. It took until 2016 to see Wonder Woman back on the big screen again in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Gal Gadot was hailed as one of the best parts of that film.
“I think that they needed a woman director and they needed the focus to be about the story of who she is. And I think they got that. So from what I understand, it’s going to be great. I can’t wait!”
Wonder Woman is being directed by Patty Jenkins and features Gal Gadot back in the leading role.
An ongoing conversation in Hollywood has centered on the lack of women both in front of the camera and behind the scenes in major motion pictures. Patty Jenkins is helming the upcoming Wonder Woman film for DC and is making her mark not only the on comic book genre but on movies as a whole, being the first woman to have directed a live-action movie with a $100 million budget.
Wonder Woman stars Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Ewen Bremner, Saïd Taghmaou, Elena Anaya, Connie Nielsen and Lucy Davis. Petty Jenkis will be directing and producers include Charles Roven, Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder, with Richard Suckle, Stephen Jones, Wesley Coller, Geoff Johns and Rebecca Roven serving as executive producers.
Wonder Woman is set to open June 2, 2017.
