“Wonder Woman” Gal Gadot will be part of a man’s world in the upcoming “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” movie. But because this girl’s got game, don’t you think she would also fit in the “Guardians of the Galaxy”? Maybe Rocket could use a friend!
According to Movie Pilot, the “Wonder Woman” lead almost became part of the gang. In Gadot’s previous interview in 2013, the Israeli actress hinted a role similar to a “Guardians of the Galaxy” character.
Speaking to Reshet.tv, Gadot talked about working in the movie industry. Likewise, she teased a role which will involve shaving her head and painting her body with blue paint.
“It’s a very complicated life, because you live from role to role, and you never know when your next role will be. So when you work, me at least, I am the most grateful, and the most, you know, enjoying it, because it’s not obvious. Especially taking part in such crazy productions, really, it’s like… I don’t know. And that’s what… There are all sorts of options and all sorts of possibilities. I have the option now for a role where I will have to shave my head and they will color me in blue paint. I swear to you.”
Movie Pilot mentioned that Gadot seemed to talk about the “shaven headed, blue-skinned” character Nebula. In “Guardians of the Galaxy,” Scottish actress Karen Gillian played the role of Nebula – the daughter of Thanos.
According to the site, Gillan was announced to be part of the cast on May 31 of that year. This meant that Gadot might have been “in the running” to play Nebula during her interview. However, “Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn denied Gadot’s possible casting in the movie.
In his official Twitter account, Gunn mentioned that Gadot didn’t even audition for Nebula’s role.
She definitely was never offered the role. I don’t remember if she auditioned. https://t.co/wXD1r0vyHg
