Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot says that her solo movie has “moments of humour”
Wonder Woman herself Gal Gadot has let us in on some secrets to the much-anticipated origin story.
It’s become customary for DC Comic heroes to show their darker side (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was hardly full of laughs), and while Gadot has promised there will be a few light moments in the upcoming Wonder Woman blockbuster, the tone is pretty serious.
“In Batman v Superman, you get a glimpse of who she is but not where she comes from. In Wonder Woman, this would be the first time we ever tell the coming-of-age story of how Diana becomes Wonder Woman,” Gadot told Digital Spy during promo for Dawn of Justice.
“It’s very interesting. It has moments of humour, but it’s pretty dark.
“We all saw before the beautiful coming of age of Batman, Spider-Man, Superman. We don’t know anything about Wonder Woman.”
She added that the Wonder Woman we’ll see is a very different version to the classy, sophisticated warrior we saw in Dawn of Justice.
“We go back 100 years to when she’s more naïve,” explains Gadot.
“She’s this young idealist. She’s pure. Very different to the experienced, super-confident, grown-up woman you’ve seen.”
Wonder Woman is directed by Patty Jenkins (Monster), and also stars Chris Pine, Robin Wright and Connie Nielsen.
Wonder Woman is due for release on June 2, 2017. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is in cinemas now.
