Gal Gadot explains her character Wonder Woman will be virtually unrecognizable in the standalone picture.
The Israeli star portrays the classic DC Comics persona in new hit superhero flick Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and she also plays the character in the forthcoming eponymous feature, which reaches cinemas in 2017. However, audiences should not expect to see the same Wonder Woman in both films, as their personalities are distinctly different, according to Gadot.
“Wonder Woman (in the solo movie) is different than the one you’re going to see in Batman v Superman,” she details to IGN. “In the standalone Wonder Woman movie (due out next year), it’s the first time we’re going to tell the coming of age (story) of Wonder Woman and I’m going to go back in time, I’m going to travel back in time.”
Taking on the acting challenge of portraying the same character in very different stages of development was a fun process for Gadot.
The 30 year old appreciates the fact she is now the face of a superhero who experiences such tremendous personal growth in different films.
“She’s more naive and pure (in the standalone film) and she’s this young idealist who does not understand the complexities of men and life, whereas in Batman v Superman she’s super, she’s very experienced and it’s been such an amazing creative process,” Gadot gushes.
Gadot follows in the footsteps of original Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter, who portrayed the comic book favorite on TV between 1975 to 1979.
