Gal Gadot Talks Wonder Woman: Henry Cavill & Zack Snyder React To Trinity In Batman Vs. Superman

Check out what Gal Gadot had to say about Wonder Woman in Batman Vs. Superman in the latest issue of Total Film Magazine, as well as Heny Cavill, Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder talking about when the DC Trinity first came together.

Gal Gadot on Lynda Carter:

I think that the Lynda Carter version was very relevant back in the 70s. Now, Zack Snyder is in collaboration with Patty Jenkins, who's going to direct [the solo Wonder Woman] movie. All of us want to evolve the character because what you saw back then, you've already seen. So we're going to give it another layer of interpretation and make her a bit more relevant and a bit more up to date.

Gal Gadot on the first time all three were in costume:

It was crazy! You don't do fittings together. You do them separately. But the first time they shot the trio, it was almost magical. On the one hand, when you think about it realistically, it's kind of weird to stand there, all three of us as superheroes. And then, when we started to shoot, Ben became Batman, Henry became Superman, and I became Wonder Woman. I can't even express in words how excited I was.

How it feels to be starting on the Wonder Woman movie, which starts filming in November:

It feels amazing, but for some reason, I feel like it's not for me. The Wonder Woman is a story that needs to be told. I'm so happy it's me to tell that story. I think there is no better time than now, and it's about time we should this amazing heroine on the big screen.

Zack Snyder on Wonder Woman's story in Batman Vs. Superman:

That I think is an interesting story point. I don't think it's time to ruin that yet. But I will say they share a mutual interest. They - all three of them - are in a weird way looking for a similar thing. They're on the same track. 

Zack Snyder on the DC Trinity first coming together:

There was actually a moment in the costume test where there was Batman, Superman, and we were testing the Wonder Woman costume at the same time. They were all standing there. I was like, 'Oh, my lord, this is crazy.' It's crazy enough just to see the two of those guys together. Once you see the trinity..."

Henry Cavill on the first time:

When you stand there, you realize, 'Oh wow, this is history right here - comic book history.' And when you see the photo, that's when you go, 'OK, cool, right. I get why people were standing there agog during the photoshoot.

Deborah Snyder on seeing Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman for the first time:

The first day that she was in costume and she came out, I literally got teared up. It really didn't hit me to how historical the moment was, because she's not been on the big screen ever. She's 75 years old next year.

Wonder Woman gets released in 2017.
