Gal Gadot On WONDER WOMAN's Sexuality

Gal Gadot On WONDER WOMAN's Sexuality

Given the recent controversy regarding Diana of Themyscira's sexual orientation, it was inevitable that Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot would be asked about the sexuality of her DCEU character.

Roughly two weeks back, current Wonder Woman writer Greg Rucka created quite the internet frenzy when he stated that he personally believed Wonder Woman was bisexual. Of course, to longtime comic book fans, that particular belief is nothing new but the uninformed section of pop culture mistook Rucka's statement as some sort of revelation.  

In a new interview with Variety, in celebration of Wonder Woman's 75th Anniversary, Gal Gadot was asked about this very same topic and whether the film version will contain any traces of this sentiment.  Her response? “It’s not something we’ve explored [in the film]. It never came to the table, but when you talk theoretically about all the women on Themyscira and how many years she was there, then what he said makes sense. In this movie she does not experience any bisexual relationships. But it’s not about that. She’s a woman who loves people for who they are. She can be bisexual. She loves people for their hearts.”  

If you were wondering if there would be any hint of sexual relationships on Themyscira in Patty Jenkins big screen adaptation of DC Comics' most iconic heroine, there's your answer.  

Wonder Woman arrives in theaters on June 2, 2017.



Wonder Woman’ hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
