Gal Gadot Wonder Woman Henry Cavill Superman
Though Wonder Woman will be the titular heroines first standalone feature film, Gal Gadot made her first appearance as the character in last year’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice where she fought alongside the Man of Steel. Of course, as has been the case since the creation of superheroes, a number of fans have wondered how a potential showdown between both heroes would unfold. In an interview with WBTV Brazil, Gal Gadot weighed in on the debate when asked if her version of Wonder Woman could beat Henry Cavill’s Superman in a fight.

Gadot stated that while the fight would be close, Wonder Woman would emerge victorious.

“For sure. It’s gonna be a tight one, but yes.”

How do you think a brawl between the DCEU versions of Wonder Woman and Superman would go down? Share your thoughts below!

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers… and her true destiny.

Directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner and Saïd Taghmaoui.

Wonder Woman will be released in theaters on June 2, 2017.

10 Reasons To Be Optimistic About ‘Wonder Woman’

Previous1 of 11

Wonder WomanThere’s a fair amount riding on Wonder Woman, DC’s summer blockbuster, for more reasons than just being the first major female superhero movie made. It follows up two divisive entries in the universe, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. While successful, the performances of both at the box office and with critics merited re-evaluation by the filmmakers in the form of corporate restructuring and written mea culpas.

Despite these stumbles, there’s many reasons to be optimistic about Wonder Woman. Gal Gadot was well-received as Diana Prince in Batman v Superman, it’s set in the past, focusing on one character after two ensemble pictures, and both Patty Jenkins and Geoff Johns add directorial and comic credibility, respectively. Plus, it’s no small thing that DC Films will beat Marvel Studios to the first female superhero movie, despite the latter having made over a dozen movies to former’s four. It’s important milestone for representation in pop culture.

Here’s 10 reasons to be optimistic about the Wonder Woman movie. Click Next to start!

    She’s wrong, but oh well.

  • Bruce Norris

    Wrong. Still, what was she supposed to say?

  • 12stepCornelius

    Technically, yeah, she’d whoop that @ss. She’s nearly gouged his eyes out and broke his arm in Injustice. And they’ve seemed to somewhat weaken them slightly in the DCEU (i.e., Superman passing out after destroying the world engine). And she stood up to Doomsday better than Superman did. So who’s to say she couldn’t knock him out with a good placed haymaker. It would be one heck of a fight though.

  • Carl

    In the DCEU, yeah. That Superman is garbage. He couldn’t even beat Batman.

    • NaruHinafan23

      Batman couldn’t even beat himself in that movie. He was so stupid, he needed Superman holding back AND Lex Luthor to figure everything out for him.

    • Serpent0001

      DCEU Supes is pretty damn strong…In MOS he and the Kryptonians displayed strength levels we’ve never seen in any Superhero flick yet (Even Hulk in Avengers)

  • Darthmanwe

    That’s not a new fact, for a long time, comic book nerds knew that Diana could take out every single member of the JL, may have some diff. with Flash and Supes, but she can take them down.

    No overt weaknesses, a pretty solid power set and thousands of years of training will do that.

    And to the Superman fanboys, please go and google this. Because there is an explicit statement by Bruce stating that she could do exactly that if it was needed. And if we can’t trust Batman’s judgement on the matter…

    P.S.: As always though, Bruce was making that statement taking in all the factors into account. And when you are setting up a Superman vs. debate, the question is never his power, but his willingness and limit of his control.

    Clark can never fight as confident or as savage as Diana can, on the fact that he fears he could hurt someone, and even if he wanted, he subconsciously always limits himself.

    Bruce knew that, obviously.

    Although, here is the scary part, if memory serves, Diana was holding up to Ultraman quite well in the crisis comic, and that’s supposed to be full on evil Kryptonian.

  • Ruben C Barron

    Then maybe she should’ve stabbed Doomsday with the spear that was made of Kryptonite.

    • Ruben C Barron

      Or maybe the sword that was already strong enough to hurt Doomsday without kryptonite.

      • Bill

        But it wouldn’t have killed him.

  • Serpent0001

    I believe that it’s always been DC canon that Superman is physically more powerful that WW. (WW has always been categoriezed as second to Supermnan in terms of strength level) She is however supposed to be a better (RE: highly trained) fighter than Supes is. Which would give her an advantage in a square off – and the fact that Supes would never unload his full strength on someone.
