Gal Gadot Describes “Wonder Woman” as a “Coming-of-Age Story”

In a short time, Gal Gadot has accumulated a lot of experience playing Wonder Woman — first in this spring’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” then in 2017’s “Wonder Woman” and now in the currently filming “Justice League” film. Gadot briefly chatted with reporters at a press visit to the London set of “Justice League,” attended by CBR, and shared her insight on the differences between the Wonder Woman of “Justice League” and the upcoming solo film.

“The Wonder Woman we see in ‘Justice League’ is similar to the Wonder Woman that we saw in ‘BvS,'” Gadot said. “The Wonder Woman that you will see on the solo movie, she’s different. It’s the coming-of-age story, it’s about her become an adult, really. From a child to an adult, and understanding the complexities of life.”

Gadot’s comments are only logical given the setting of “Wonder Woman,” which takes place during World War I — as alluded to by the archival photo of the immortal character seen in “Batman v Superman.” Gadot also talked briefly about the “Justice League” team dynamic — and her use of the word “fun” reflects the overall message of the set visit, that “Justice League” aims to be comparatively less dark and grim than the critically maligned “Batman v Superman.”

“I think we found a very interesting dynamic,” Gadot said. “It’s fun, it’s funny. It’s different, each and every character brings their own flavor and color to the team. And for me, you know, personally it’s really fun to play with them. They’re great, they’re talented, and I’m having a great time.”

In “Justice League,” Gadot will be joined by Batman (Ben Affleck), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller), Cyborg (Henry Cavill), though exactly how the Man of Steel — whose fate was left ambiguous at the end of “BvS” — will figure into the film is currently unknown. At the set visit, reporters observed the filming of scene on the Gotham City Police Department rooftop, with Commissioner Gordon (J.K. Simmons) addressing Batman, Wonder Woman and The Flash, who are subsequently joined by Cyborg.

Directed by Patty Jenkins, “Wonder Woman” is scheduled for release on June 2, 2017. “Justice League,” directed by Zack Snyder, is due out five months later on Nov. 17, 2017.
