‘Wonder Woman' Movie News: New 'Wonder Woman' Photos See Gal Gadot Being Directed by Patty Jenkins
It seems like everything is all set in the film "Wonder Woman" as the new photos for the upcoming movie is circulating in the internet today.
Entertainment weekly has its first look on the exclusive images of Gal Gadot starring as the iconic Amazonian Hero. In the photos, Gadot can be seen striking a powerful pose by drawing a sword on her right hand and holding a shield on her left. The photos of the armored beauty were taken in the middle of a forest or the Amazon.
Rather than a small player in a larger arena of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, this is the first solo movie in the 75-year history of the iconic woman superhero. Patty Jenkins, the director of the movie says that Gal Gadot, the 31-year old former combat trainer of Israeli army possessed the "natural spirit of Wonder Woman".
Portraying Diana Prince a.k.a. Wonder Woman requires a lot from Gadot. She encountered a lot of discomfort during the shoot, "It was cold. My ovaries froze", she laughed while sharing in an interview her experience in one of the photo shoot during winter time where she stands at the top of a five-story building in a not-so warm Wonder Woman costume.
Gadot has been working with male directors all her life. However, when asked about why only a woman could direct her new film, Gadot honestly said, "Working with a woman is a different experience," she added, "it feels like the communication is different. We talk about emotions." Gadot emphasized the importance of having a female director for the film because, "it's a story about a girl becoming a woman. I think only a woman, who has been a girl, can be able to tell the story in the right way."
The cast of "Wonder Woman" will be seen at the San Diego Comic-Con on July 23, 2016. The movie will premiere on June 2, 2017.
