But the simple fact that the movie doesn't rely on that action to move forward or to provide thrills is what makes Wonder Woman special, while Diana's humanity and compassion make her one of the most important superheroes we've ever had on screen. "She can just be a hero". "[We] got to do more in Justice League", Nielsen said. Come on - Halle Berry and Pamela Anderson in bondage gear is not going to make women head to their local Vue.
Gadot called the 7-year-old, Zoey Vardi-Bar, "clever and creative" and sent her a "big hug".
Now Gal has taken to social media to express her profound gratitude to fans for turning Wonder Woman into such a huge success. "Apparently she really is Wonder Woman", said one woman. However, it seems that we did get one extra scene during the reshoots, with Jenkins telling THR that she made a decision to add a single sequence during Diana's march towards the front lines. Not only has the "Wonder Woman" movie rescued the superhero genre from its slump but Variety is reporting that the Amazon princess flick has also won the Internet. But she was easily one of the best parts of the disappointing 2016 superhero flick, and we knew then that Gal Gadot was the right choice to play the role.
On the red carpet at the world premiere, Gadot spoke to Variety about the industry's progress in regards to big-budget superhero films, saying, "I think that it's so important that we have also strong female figures to look up to, and Wonder Woman is an unbelievable one".
Israeli actress Gadot - who was initially maligned for being too thin and not voluptuous enough (with TV actress Linda Carter used as a yardstick) - proves to be a flawless fit for the title character, with Pine (with arguably a career best performance) and British actress Lucy Davis (TV series The Office), providing exceptional support.
The film has been booming at the box office and has been praised by critics and audiences alike for being the superhero movie both DC and its massive fan base desperately needed in cinemas after Batman vs Superman and Man of Steel.
We're in a political moment when rooms full of men are making decisions about women's future and the country is being run by a man who brags about sexually assaulting women.
