Despite criticisms on her physicalities, “Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot remains positive that she’s the best superhero in town. Her standalone film, set for release next year, will likely have an impact on the DC Extended Universe. How will the Amazon Princess bring change to DCEU? Read on to find out more.
There have been reports that Gal Gadot is not the only choice for the Female-led superhero film. Earlier reports mentioned that if Nicolas Winding Refn had become the director, Refn eyed Christina Hendricks as Diana Prince. But, irregardless of the selection, there’s so much more to talk about the movie itself. After the release of a new footage from the film, Movie Pilot wrote that it suggests a “positive affect” on DCEU.
Zack Snyder may have failed critics on “Batman vs Superman” but what’s notable about his works is “distinctive cinematography.” And while Patty Jenkins directs the film and Snyder produces, it’s expected he’ll maintain the “aesthetically pleasing visuals.”
Likewise, its plot is also highly-anticipated. The movie will reveal how the Amazon Princess transitioned from the island of Themyscira to Western society. When Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) meets her on Paradise Island, he believes she’s the “savior of humanity.”
Moreover, Movie Pilot noted that Gal Gadot’s character deviates from the norm where the female character is usually the “damsel in distress.” The movie will be more of an action film rather than present itself as a romance between Diana and her love interest. The anticipated success of Gadot’s character will likely open doors for more female-led superhero films.
After all, this is how feminist William Moulton defined Wonder Woman. “Psychological propaganda for the new type of woman who should, I believe, rule the world,” he said. Gal Gadot feels honored to have been given such role.
“I’m very happy that I have the opportunity to show the strong, the strongest and the more empowered side of women,” she revealed to Cinema Blend.
“Wonder Woman” will hit the big screen on June 2, 2017.
