WONDER WOMAN Star Gal Gadot Was Paid A Surprisingly Paltry Amount For Her First Three DC Films

Wonder Woman has been a box office hit but Gal Gadot's pay for the Amazon Warrior's first solo movie was surprisingly low. In fact, she didn't get that much more for her other DC appearances!

As of right now, Wonder Woman has made over $573 million at the worldwide box office, an impressive amount which officially makes the movie a hit. However, the controversy surrounding Hollywood's gender pay gap is unlikely to be helped by the news that star Gal Gadot received only $300,000 for starring in the DC Comics adaptation. However, there's more to the story than that alone.

She was also paid $300,000 for her appearances in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, so the actress clearly decided to take some sort of package deal for these three appearances.

Had she done them film by film, chances are Gadot could have secured a better deal as time went on. Then again, the fact the production schedules of all three overlapped may have complicated that!

Interestingly, it's said that Henry Cavill was paid $14 million for Man of Steel and he wasn't any more famous than Gadot at the time he was cast as Superman. Then again, Chris Evans received only $300,000 for Captain America: The First Avenger and many of The Avengers' stars got just $200,000 for that superhero ensemble compared to Robert Downey Jr.'s $50 million.
