Ever since the release of the sizzle reel in 2016 at Comic-Con International, it’s been apparent that Wonder Woman and Batman would be instrumental in assembling the team in Justice League. However, while the duo appears poised to share the honor of uniting the heroes, Gal Gadot feels it’s the Amazon who truly binds them.
“For me it was important that [Wonder Woman] be the glue of the team,” Gadot told DC All Access. “I think that one of the special and beautiful things about Diana is that she cares for people in the most sincere way. So in her scenes, I made sure that she would make every one of them feel stronger, loved and capable. The story in Justice League is far bigger than Diana; it’s about the entire League.”
Given the fan reception of Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman, Diana’s significance to the team’s dynamic makes perfect sense. However, it’s hardly her only contribution to the film. The Amazons’ ties to the villainous Steppenwolf have been hinted at in trailers and promos, which depicted the Apokoliptian general arriving on Themyscira via Boom Tube. There’s also footage of Amazon warriors embroiled in battle with the invading Parademons.
Most recently, in the Wonder Woman epilogue “Etta’s Mission,” Etta Candy reunited with Sameer, Charlie and Chief Napi to lay out a mission to recover a “very old” and “very powerful” artifact, one of the Apokoliptian “living computers” known as a Mother Box.
Opening Nov, 17, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Raymond Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Amber Heard as Mera and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
