Expect three movies with Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman
Let it be known, when you sign up to take on the role of one of DC Comic’s most iconic female Super Heroes of all time, you need to be in it for the long-haul. DC Comics and Warner Bros. have signed the lovely Gal Gadot for no-less than three films as Wonder Woman.
Gadot herself broke the news on the Israeli talk show “Good Evening With Gai Pines,” where she confirmed she will be playing Wonder Woman in three films, the first film will be the next Man of Steel 2 film, currently being called “Batman vs. Superman.”
Gadot came under fire when it was announced that she would be playing Wonder Woman, with fans disagreeing with the choice to cast her as the lasso wielding Amazon Warrior. Since we know nothing of the time-frame, the age that Wonder Woman will be in the film, or the very plot, that anger seems a little pre-mature.
With three films on the docket, fans will be eager to learn the basis of the other two films that Gadot will play as Wonder Woman after Man of Steel 2. The rumor of a “Justice League” film could see Gadot return as Wonder Woman, then she could finish her third movie in the Man of Steel 3 trilogy.
Fans could get excited over a stand-alone Wonder Woman film, female driven movies are sweeping the box-office of late (Hunger Games, Divergent to name just two) and a female Super Hero film would help Warner Bros. standout in the crowded comic-book movie genre.
Warner Bros. announced earlier this month that Zack Snyder’s untitled Superman/Batman film has been moved to May 6, 2016. This was done to allow the team, “time to realize fully their vision, given the complex visual nature of the story,” according to Warner Bros. official announcement on the matter.
The decision was made following the shift of the start of production to second quarter of this year. The Studio has also set a July 17, 2015, worldwide release date for its as-yet-untitled all-new Peter Pan adventure. Joe Wright will direct the epic live-action film about the boy who would never grow up, created by J.M. Barrie. The dual date announcement was made by Dan Fellman, President, Domestic Distribution, and Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, President,
