Gal Gadot explains why the Wonder Woman standalone movie will be very different

Once more, we are looking forward to the massive DC Cinematic Universe that’s been set up in Batman V Superman and the characters that exist in it.

One character that really came out of the movie looking great was Wonder Woman/Diana Prince, played by Gal Gadot, who even the harshest of critics loved in the movie

As we discover in Batman V Superman, the Wonder Woman movie will take place (at least some of it) during world War I and will be wildly different from the movies we’ve seen so far:  “In the standalone Wonder Woman movie,” says Gadot, “it’s the first time we’re going to tell the coming of age of Wonder Woman and I’m going to go back in time, I’m going to travel back in time.” 

“Wonder Woman [in the solo film] is different than the one you’re going to see in Batman v Superman. She’s more naive and pure and she’s this young idealist who does not understand the complexities of men and life, whereas in BvS she’s super, she’s very experienced and it’s been such am amazing creative process.”

We’re really looking forward to seeing Gadot in a solo Wonder Woman movie and given that she tells Batman and Superman in BvS that she’s fought alien creatures before, we reckon this means anything is fair game for the standalone movie.

Let us know what you think, guys…

Directed by Patty Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Lucy Davis, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, and Saïd Taghmaoui, Wonder Woman will open in cinemas on June 23, 2017.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
