Gal Gadot On The Difference Between Zack Snyder's WONDER WOMAN And Patty Jenkins' Version

Actress Gal Gadot discusses the difference in interpretation between Zack Snyder's Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Patty Jenkins' vision in the character's standalone film.

Today we received a new look at Wonder Woman from the character's upcoming standalone movie which is currently filming in London and set for release on June 23, 2017. The upcoming film is being directed by Patty Jenkins and recounts the character's origin. Whether the film uses the traditional origin of Dianna being sculpted from clay, or chooses to use the more modern origin of her being the illegitimate daughter of Zeus and Hippolyta, remains a mystery.  Regardless of which Wonder Woman origin they choose to use, one thing that will be different is the setting of the film.  At least a portion of the movie will be set during Wolrd War I, in contrast to Batman v Superman's taking place in modern day.  According to Gadot, this difference in the two films time periods result in a very different version of the Amazonian princess. 

"There's only so much I can say. But ... the Wonder Woman you're going to see in "Batman v Superman" is a very different Wonder Woman that you will see in the standalone movie. The Wonder Woman that you see in "Batman v Superman" is a woman who has been around, and she's very experienced. She understands a lot about man. Whereas in the standalone movie we are telling the grown-up story. Diana becoming Wonder Woman, and this was a story that was never told before. When she starts this journey, she's very pure. She's more naive, she's this young idealist who does not really understand the complexities of life and the complexities of men."

DISASTER!

@N0sferatuZ0ddx - WOW got to say was thinking the same thing when i read it! Still can't believe this is happening with the movie. Batman v Superman not living up to the hype and being medicore is very very VERY bad for the genre :(

@Shanksman -

It is all in good fun boy, calm down.
It seems that you are the traumatized one after the movie is not living up to your expectations. That is not my fault.

Also go and patronize Jollem, BreadPitt, Clarkman, JaredsJoker and all the other fanboys that troll Marvel at every chance they have.

Learn to not be a hypocrite and only patronize people who talks bad about DC.

It is all in good fun, kid
Shanksman - 3/24/2016, 11:06 AM
@MrDeadRabbit - Oh no you called me kid and boy! You must be a very mature old geezer in his 50s who enjoy shit talk with fanboys in a website for comic book movie. Such mature much wow! I'm sorry that the DC fanboys hurt your feeling when you were young. I mean wow you even remember all the DC fanboy in this site. The hatred is strong in you.

Its ok now you finally got your chance to show your maturity. Forget what I said. Just keep doing it, codger.

@N0sferatuZ0ddx - I don't think they're trying to distance themselves from BvS. Back in the DCEU Special they noted that Diana in Wonder Woman would be different attitude-wise from the Diana in BvS.
And it makes sense, given her experiences in Man's World.

@N0sferatuZ0ddx - You know Wonder Woman is the best part of Batman vs Superman along Ben Affleck Bruce Wayne and Jeremy Irons Alfred right?

You also understand at less 5 % about screen writing right?

What they are doing with Wonder Woman is great, really good. Because is call Development of Character or also known like "Character Arc". In another words you cant have the same Wonder Woman of 2016 almost 100 years ago is pretty stupid and simple.

So yes maybe Batman vs Superman was a messy disaster, but what they are doing with this characters in their along movies, aside of the shitty direction of Zack Snyder and script ideas of David S. Goyer looks really good and interesting.

Because aside from Zack Snyder the other directors dont feel insecure about their main characters changing them from the core and later killing them because they could not tell a coherent narrative in the first place (Superman)...

MattBellissimo - 3/24/2016, 9:30 AM
BVS needed more of her.
SuperCat - 3/24/2016, 9:31 AM
The big question is will we see the invisible jet in this one?
PeterStarker - 3/24/2016, 9:32 AM
@SuperCat - Trick question
Ramiel - 3/24/2016, 9:44 AM
@SuperCat - You can somewhat see it on the official image.
SuperCat - 3/24/2016, 9:50 AM
@Ramiel - LOL! I think I see it!
Kratos6 - 3/24/2016, 11:15 AM
@SuperCat - The only one who can see Invisible. Lucky
MaddAddaM - 3/24/2016, 9:31 AM
I'm going to hold out hope that Jenkins can really work with Gal and her acting coaches to churn out a great performance. She looks cool in BvS, and her action is great but the acting is mostly wooden and lifeless. The only scene where she shines in the role and nopt just the costume is the party scene.
PeterStarker - 3/24/2016, 9:32 AM
The only thing I'm looking forward to about BvS tonight now...
Feedthemachine - 3/24/2016, 12:46 PM
@Dandy - That preview on CW was beautiful...I don't know what you're talking about.
AlexanderLykins - 3/24/2016, 9:33 AM
Excited for her to get more practice and experience as Wonder Woman and as an actress. Nothing like learning on the job.
Forthas - 3/24/2016, 9:35 AM
Shouldn't the stand alone origin film have come first?
Nasseal82isback - 3/24/2016, 9:36 AM
@Forthas - After seeing Batman vs Superman today i can honestly say...."YES"
Mars11 - 3/24/2016, 9:38 AM
@Forthas - snyder tried rushing this universe without takin in standalone movies thats why bvs failed..they should of had batman wonder woman flash before jl
Ramiel - 3/24/2016, 9:45 AM
@Forthas - Marvel is doing the same with Spidey and Panther.
HaleyRoss - 3/24/2016, 9:52 AM
@Ramiel - Are they? I mean I know that Spider-Man and Black Panther have their own movies after Captain America: Civil War but are their origin stories going to be told in those movies or are they just going to be continuing their stories from after the events of Civil War?
Coleco84 - 3/24/2016, 10:02 AM
@Forthas - Marvel does that, so [frick] Marvel
Ramiel - 3/24/2016, 10:02 AM
@haleyross61 - I know Spider-Man's movie won't be an origin story. Not sure about Black Panther's.
Coleco84 - 3/24/2016, 10:02 AM
@Ramiel - After 8 years of doing origin stories, and Spidey is still a Sony character. About Black Panther, I agree.
Ramiel - 3/24/2016, 10:06 AM
@Rukawa1984 - I'm totally convinced that Spidey is a Sony character by name only. Holland was picked by the Russos, Fiege was the one who hired both the director and writers. I have yet to hear from a Sony exec talk about Spider-Man.
BatwingDCCU - 3/24/2016, 10:18 AM
@Ramiel - Spidey is a MCU character by name only. Sony will be making four Spiderman films, from which Marvel Studios will get absolutely NOTHING. It doesn't matter if the Russos and Feige designed the character. Spidey is still owned by Sony, and they are the ones who will be making money off of the character.
Coleco84 - 3/24/2016, 10:20 AM
@Ramiel - It wasnt. Spiderman is still a Sony character.
Ramiel - 3/24/2016, 10:34 AM
@BatwingDCCU - Actually, Marvel will still be making money off the character via merchandise sales. A couple of years ago, Marvel made over a billion dollars off of Spider-Man's name.
TheFamousJMC - 3/24/2016, 10:58 AM
@BatwingDCCU - The Russos are producing the new Spider-man films. They chose the actor, director and the writers and all personnel.
Battabing - 3/24/2016, 11:41 AM
@Prophet11 - Actually, the JL characters aren't really rushed. They're simply shown to exist in a world where Batman has been active for 20 years and WW was caught on camera 100 years ago. You don't need stand alone movies to set up JL.
Forthas - 3/24/2016, 11:59 AM
@Ramiel - True but in fairness Spiderman was out of their control. Let's see how it works out with Panther. But you are right they should have done an origin story with him first.
Forthas - 3/24/2016, 11:59 AM
@Rukawa1984 - Agreed!
chriskrispy - 3/24/2016, 1:43 PM
@Prophet11 - way I look at it, the general public already knows Batman through and through. They wouldn't need to set him up. I feel like Wonder Woman deserves an origin first, because many people don't know her. They know she's strong, she's a woman, that's it. And her backstory is rich enough to work. However, I don't think the others need origin films before JL. To most people, Flash runs fast, Aquaman swims, and Cyborg is black. Justice League would hopefully ignite enough interest in those characters to make solo films fully succeed and flesh out the characters more. It's not that they're weaker characters than WW, far from it. But I think giving more attention to WW, the one in the trinity who not many of the general public know fully, would pay off more than just shoving her in.
SteveRogers9 - 3/24/2016, 9:35 AM
They're already starting to distance the 2. lol
Ryguy88 - 3/24/2016, 9:37 AM
Now I don't want to be a Negative Nancy but it sounds to me like everyone is trying to explain how the next movies in the DCEU are unlike BvS.
MattBellissimo - 3/24/2016, 10:28 AM
@Ryguy88 - Suicide Squad is going to soar, dude. Mark my words.
