In the words of the Pussycat Dolls (aw remember them?), Wonder Woman doesn’t need a man to make anything happen in the forthcoming DC flick.
In an interview with Glamour, Gal Gadot indicated that the film adaptation of the Amazonian warrior will be true to the comic version – a strong, independent woman who isn’t reliant on a man.
And thank goodness! There’s nothing worse than when a female superhero is stripped of her strength and re-written into some emotional love sick wimp (*coughs* Rogue from X-Men).
She explained that while filming, it was important to “show how independent she [Wonder Woman] is”.
“She is not relying on a man, and she’s not there because of a love story. She’s not there to serve someone else.”
– Gal Gadot
This was evident in the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer, during which Batman and Superman question who “she came with”.
Gadot continued, saying that Wonder Woman is strong and powerful but she’s also emotionally intelligent.
Meanwhile, Entertainment Weekly has reported that Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman aren’t the only members of the Justice League making an appearance in the new movie.
According to the source, The Flash aka Barry Allen will speed by during a ‘dream’ sequence where he’ll deliver a cryptic message to Bruce Wayne.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be out in Australian cinemas on 24 March.
Are you glad DC has made Wonder Woman strong and independent in the new movie?
