It’s taken a bit for Warner Bros.’ DC film universe to gain some traction with fans. After three polarizing to disliked films, many were ready to call it quits on the universe altogether. Luckily, Wonder Woman helped turn the narrative somewhat, but many assumed that this would lead to Justice League becoming little more than Wonder Woman 1.5.

If you were concerned about Wonder Woman potentially overshadowing the rest of the Justice League in Warner Bros.’ attempt to cash in on her popularity, don’t worry. It sounds like despite all the talk, Wonder Woman won’t be highlighted any more than she needs to be. Speaking with Empire (via CBM), actress Gal Gadot discussed how much works he did in the reshoots, and what it could mean for the film:

“I did one week. Diana serves as the glue of the team. She finds moments to support every one of the team and make them feel stronger or believe in themselves. But this is not a Wonder Woman movie.”

That’s great to hear. As much as I loved Wonder Woman, there’s no denying that it would have been a missed opportunity to have this movie focus mostly on her, with everyone else falling to the wayside. With this movie being called Justice League, it’s only fitting that the Justice League all be a part of it.

“Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s (Henry Cavill) selfless act, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash — it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.”

Do you think it’s a good move for them not to put Wonder Woman front-and-center in the film? Let us know your thoughts down below!

Justice League hits theaters on November 17, 2017.
