Lynda Carter and Gal Gadot discuss Wonder Woman’s return
It was revealed last month that ‘Fast and Furious’ star Gal Gadot would be the new Wonder Woman in ‘Superman Vs Batman’.
In a recent interview for Good Evening with Gai Pines (via Batman News) Gadot addressed much of the fan criticism about her lack of physical build for the role and touched on the physical preparation she is taking on to play the role.
“It’s the physical preparations that I’m starting now,” Gadot said.
“A very serious training regimen – Kung Fu, kickboxing, swords, jujutsu, Brazilian. A thousand and one things. I’ll gain body mass.
“I represent the Wonder Woman of the new world,” she continued. “Breasts… anyone can buy [some] for 9,000 shekels and everything is fine.
“By the way, Wonder Woman is Amazonian, and historically accurate Amazonian women actually had only one breast. So, if I really went ‘by the book’, it’d be problematic.”
In a separate interview for Metro Lynda Carter who played the role of Wonder Woman for three seasons in the 1970s talked about the decision from Zack Snyder to introduce a new Wonder Woman in ‘Superman Vs Batman’
Carter said that introducing Wonder Woman via a ‘Superman’ movie was possibly better than introducing her as the main character.
“She won’t have to carry the whole film. It takes the pressure off. I wish her well.
“I’m just glad she’s going to be out there again. Maybe she’ll get her own show again.”
When talking about the character in more general terms Carter said that Wonder Woman was always about her ethics and not her super powers.
“She’s not your average superhero. It’s not so much about her super powers as it is about her ethic. I always thought of her as a figure who stands for what’s right. We all know what’s wrong with the world today, so maybe we need her right now.”
Warner Bros’ Man of Steel sequel will be released on July 17, 2015.
