Warner Bros. Pictures’ Wonder Woman took the world by storm making over $800 million dollars worldwide and now in the hunt for an Oscar. With Man of Steel, Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad not quite meeting audiences expectations, not many people were giving Wonder Woman much hope, but lucky for the DCEU it was a smash hit that now leads us into next month’s highly anticipated DCEU film Justice League.
We know how Gal Gadot’s character, Diana Prince, has the ability to show great love and compassion for all those around her, so how would that affect her role with the Justice League team? Thanks to an interview with Gadot by DC All Access that can be found in DC books this week, we have an idea of her role:
“For me it was important that she be the glue of the team. I think that one of the special and beautiful things about Diana is that she cares for people in the most sincere way. So in her scenes, I made sure that she would make every one of them feel stronger, loved and capable. The story in Justice League is far bigger than Diana; it’s about the entire League.”
Since the ending of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, we have seen that Bruce Wayne, played by Ben Affleck, and Diana are going to be putting together the team to fight the incoming threat that Lex Luthor told Batman about. Since the first trailer dropped we have seen Bruce recruiting Arthur Curry aka Aquaman, played by Jason Mamoa and Barry Allen aka The Flash, played by Erza Miller. With this statement from Gadot and given what we have seen in the trailers it’s safe to assume that Bruce in charge of bringing everyone together and Diana will take care of making sure everyone stays together as well as keeping everyone motivated. It will be interesting to see her character from the direction of Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon as opposed to Patty Jenkins, the director for Wonder Woman.
With all that said, Gadot also comments about how her character will fight differently alongside the rest of the League and how that affects her character, she says:
“I think the only difference is that they have to work together. It’s like a dance. One of them should set up the hit and then another should deliver it at the perfect time. I think that fighting alongside the team puts more stress on Diana, because she doesn’t want anything to happen to any of them.”
Since her debut in Batman v Superman, as well as her solo film, we have seen how ferocious Wonder Woman’s fighting style can be. Now you combine her experience with the experience of someone like the Flash who has said that he often runs away as well as someone like Batman who doesn’t have any special abilities besides money, it is easy to see why Diana would be worried about her teammates getting hurt, especially when facing a threat such as Steppenwolf.
With presale tickets for Justice League now available, we have very little time left to wait to see this highly anticipated film DC Comic’s most prominent characters together on the big screen. With how successful Gal Gadot’s character has been so far, no doubt that fans will expect a lot from her. What are your expectations for Wonder Woman in Justice League?
