Saïd Taghmaoui Talks WONDER WOMAN Role; Is He Playing A Superhero?

Saïd Taghmaoui Talks WONDER WOMAN Role; Is He Playing A Superhero?

Hit the jump and check out what the newest addition to the Wonder Woman cast, Saïd Taghmaoui, has to say about his role in Princess Diana's highly-anticipated solo outing, how that role came about, what he had to endure in preparation, and also how long shooting will last.



It wasn't until Saïd Taghmaoui had posted (and later deleted) our first Wonder Woman set images that we even knew the French actor had joined the supporting cast. However, thanks to keen eyes on Twitter as well as Google Translator, it appears the American Hustle star had actually revealed his inclusion in the long-awaited DC Comics adaptation to French magazine Ultra's October issue. 

When asked what role he will be playing in Wonder Woman, Taghmaoui apparently said, "I'll be playing a superhero, but details are still under wraps, so I can't tell you much." We should note that this translation is a bit rough, and Saïd could have actually said he'll be playing one of the good guys as opposed to a supehero or a villain. Regardless, he was then asked how he had landed the mystery role, to which he credited good luck and hard work. "I was among hundreds of potential candidates, and I slowly became the favorite," he said. "It wasn't easy. It took me three months.   [I'll have to go through] extensive physical training. Shooting was slated to begin in November, and will take about 6 months, in 4 different countries." Who do you think Taghmaoui is playing?




Directed by Patty Jenkins and written by Jason Fuchs, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Saïd Taghmaoui, and maybe Nicole Kidman, with a release date that's scheduled for June 23, 2017.
