It has been made clear that Gal Gadot’s casting as the new Wonder Woman was not well received by fans and experts alike.
While it’s been highly criticized, Warner Bros. hs reportedly decided to push through with the casting, even signing the Israeli actress to multi picture deal.
And while the “Wonder Woman” standalone film is not coming until June 23, 2017, Gal Gadot is reportedly going to have a rather smaller role in the upcoming “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice,” where she will finally be introduced as Wonder Woman.
According to Kpopstarz, Gadot, who’s done filming scenes from the movie is reportedly not doing any major fight scenes.
“According to reported rumors, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman hasn’t buffed herself up enough yet for the Wonder Woman part. She will reportedly be in for at least one full year to achieve the Amazon Princess’ physique. Gal Gadot has been documenting her progress on Twitter,” the publication reported.
The said report most likely came prior to the new trailer’s release, where Gal Gadot was seen in what seems to be a major fighting seen.
While some felt satisfied with Gadot’s appearance on the recently release trailer, famed comic book writer Grant Morrison thinks otherwise.
In an interview with Nerdist Morrison openly expressed his disappointed in Gal Gadot’s performance in the trailer.
“[The warrior woman thing is] not what [Wonder Woman creator] William Marston wanted, that’s not what he wanted at all!” said Morrison. “His original concept for Wonder Woman was an answer to comics that he thought were filled with images of blood-curdling masculinity, and you see the latest shots of Gal Gadot in the costume, and it’s all sword and shield and her snarling at the camera. Marston’s Diana was a doctor, a healer, a scientist.”
Despite the endless criticisms, it looks like Warner Bros. is determined in pushing through with “Wonder Woman” standalone film as new update has been released.
While the storyline has still remained a secret, new development suggests that the movie has already found the actor who’ll play Steve Trevor, Diana Prince’s love interest.
“Star Trek” actor Chris Pine, like Gal Gadot has reportedly closed a multi-movie deal with Warner Bros. to play opposite Diana Prince, The Wrap reported.
Patty Jenkins will direct “Wonder Woman,” which will be produced by Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder together with Charles Roven and Richard Suckle of Atlas Entertainment. Jason Fuchs was tapped to write the script.
Wonder Woman set to be introduced next year in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” before her solo movie schedule to hit big screens on June 23, 2017.
LOS ANGELES – “Black and blue. God vs. man. Day vs. night.”
So spoke Jesse Eisenberg, in the role of Lex Luthor in the brand new trailer for “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.”
The new footage was unleashed at San Diego Comic-Con when the cast gathered at a panel for the mega-superhero movie, due in theaters March 25, 2016.
Not only did we see Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor, we also saw Gal Gadot in action for the first time as Wonder Woman.
This movie will be the first big screen appearance of the Amazon Princess, who will be celebrating her 75th birthday in comics when the film premieres.
There was more news in the world of DC Comics movies at the Warner Bros. Pictures panel (DC and Warner Bros. are both Time Warner properties like CNN).
The cast of next year’s “Suicide Squad,” including Will Smith and Margot Robbie also appeared, and showed footage to the crowd (Jared Leto’s Joker was seen for the first time, though Leto did not appear onstage).
A new “Green Lantern” movie, “Green Lantern Corps” is also due out in 2020.
Israeli star appeared on Comic-Con’s “Women Who Kick Ass” panel featuring Kathy Bates, “Game of Thrones” star Gwendoline Christie
If screams erupting in Comic-Con’s Hall H are any measurement of success, Gal Gadot is an easy winner at the 2015 San Diego convention.
On the heels of a packed Warner Bros.’ panel on Saturday that showcased Gadot’s debut as Wonder Woman in “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” the Israeli stunner elaborated on her first time trying on the iconic costume.
“Three days after I got cast for the movie, they flew me to Michigan, and I got into this huge room filled with images of me as Wonder Woman,” Gadot said on Entertainment Weekly’s “Women Who Kick Ass” panel in Hall H.
Gadot was joined on the panel by Gwendoline Christie of “Game of Thrones” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Marvel’s Agent Carter” star Haley Atwell, “Doctor Who” leading lady Jenna Coleman and “American Horror Story” player Kathy Bates.
One fan and fellow Israeli spoke Hebrew to Gadot, asking her to share her experience of making it in Hollywood from “our very small country.”
“All the clichés are right,” she said. “I really believe now that it doesn’t matter where you come from… if you’re persistent and if you’re good, if you’re trying your best and being proactive.”
Gadot will appear alongside Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jeremy Irons, Demian Birchir and Holly Hunter when “Dawn of Justice” opens nationwide on March 25. 2016.
Gal Gadot’s solo outing as “Wonder Woman” might not be a sure thing, even if it’s only a spinoff. Meanwhile, speculations claim that her first appearance in “Batman V Superman” will be shown in the trailer to be released in July.
According to Sean Erickson of Movie Pilot, studios are thinking twice before releasing another female superhero movie given the history of the genre.
“One thing worth noting is that the most recent female superhero movies have all be spin-offs of big grossing male superhero movies: Daredevil’s Elektra and Batman’s Catwoman being the last two examples,” he wrote.
“Unfortunately the stigma of the box office bombs of 2005’s Elektra and 2004’s Catwoman were still in the air and no one wanted to risk the money on a Wonder Woman movie that has all the epic scale of Joss Whedon’s Avengers, complete with a giant, fire breathing ‘Khimaera’ causing mass destruction,” the article noted.
Gal Gadot will be introduced as “Wonder Woman” in “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” but the first trailer that Zack Snyder dropped only focused on the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight.
“The studio and director Zack Snyder treated the fans by unveiling a teaser of the film at the event. Maybe this time around, Snyder will reveal a second trailer featuring a glimpse of Wonder Woman, Cyborg and Aquaman? Wishful thinking, but you never know,” said IB Times.
“Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” will be released on March 25, 2016. Aside from Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill will also reprise his role as Superman and Amy Adams will reprise her role as Lois Lane. Gal Gadot and Jason Momoa will be introduced as Wonder Woman and Aquaman, respectively.
“Social Network” actor Jesse Eisenberg will play Lex Luthor while Ray Fisher is Cyborg.
When Warner Bros.’ multi-stage release strategy for the official teaser of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was foiled Thursday by a Brazilian cell phone-wielder, it was a bit like Superman being taken down by a mere mortal. Following up on that grainy footage, directorZack Snyder has tweeted the teaser in its entirety with the hashtags #NotBlurry and #NotPirated.
The teaser is mostly a collage of voiceover describing anti-Superman sentiment, including the voices of Jesse Eisenberg, Holly Hunter and Jeremy Irons (who plays Alfred), that ends with the confrontation footage Snyder premiered all the way back at last year’s Comic-Con. A glow-eyed, armor-suited Batman throatily asks the Man of Steel, “Tell me, do you bleed? You will.”
Despite the leak and game of catch-up, the studio is still going ahead with its plan to premiere the teaser at select IMAX locations on Monday. And based on Snyder’s follow-up tweet, featuring the hashtag #AFewExtraShotsPlusALittleSwag, ticketbuyers can look forward to seeing slightly different footage than what made its way online, which is some sort of consolation. Batman v Superman is slated to hit theaters on March 25, 2016.
