Wonder Woman Was Still a Hero During 100-Year Hiatus, Gal Gadot Says

Gal Gadot in Wonder Woman

Diana of Themyscira didn't stop being a hero after the events of this year's Wonder Woman film, Gal Gadot assures -- even if she wasn't specifically operating as "Wonder Woman."

In 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it's established that Wonder Woman has been inactive in that role for about a century, before once again returning to superhero duty to assist Batman and Superman in the climactic fight against Doomsday. This summer's hit Wonder Woman solo film fills in more of those blanks, with the title character finding love and loss in the form of Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) during World War I.

Yet the question remains -- what was Diana up to in those interim 100 years or so? Where was she during major threats like, say, World War II? And could the already-confirmed Wonder Woman sequel fill in any of those blanks?

Wonder Woman star Gadot addressed the situation -- briefly -- at this past weekend's Justice League press conference in London, attended by CBR. While she declined to give any insight on Wonder Woman 2, she did say that her character remained a hero in that period, although exactly how remains to be defined.

"What is clear that is whether or not Wonder Woman was out there or incognito, she was always very involved, and she was always very active in man’s world," Gadot told reporters. "And she was always acting to save and to help and to better the world. That’s all I can tell you."

Viewers will see Gadot as Wonder Woman again very soon in Justice League, in theaters on Nov. 17. Wonder Woman 2, with Gadot returning in the title role and Patty Jenkins back as director, is scheduled for release on Dec. 13, 2019.
