One of the key pillars of the Superman mythos is that he stands for Truth, Justice, and The American Way. Well, Gal Gadot has coined her own version of that for the DC character she embodies, Wonder Woman. During a recent interview, the actress revealed how her standalone film will be different than anything we’ve seen so far in the DC Extended Universe. It’s in that answer that she reveals the philosophy behind her Wonder Woman’s methodology.
Gadot spoke to We Got This Covered and, while promoting Keeping Up With The Joneses, she opened up about how Wonder Woman will be different than Man Of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Suicide Squad:
“Wonder Woman is different. On this film, we went back to Dianaâ€™s backstory â€“ to her history, her coming of age. ‘How did Diana become Wonder Woman?’ But with this character, what I love about her so much is that her agenda is love. Itâ€™s not about fighting, itâ€™s not about who is stronger than whom; itâ€™s not about women versus men. Itâ€™s about love, and acceptance of others. She stands for love, justice and compassion.”
It seems like Gadot and Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins wanted to make the film less about powerful entities beating each other up, and more about love and understanding. It could be a very refreshing approach, in an age where even the best superhero flicks all seem to boil down to musclebound freaks punching each other.
It also seems fitting that it would be Wonder Woman, the most iconic comic book heroine ever, who would be the one to introduce an “agenda of love” to the often bombastic, testosterone-fueled superhero movie genre.
We’ll find out if this approach will work for Wonder Woman when the film arrives next June.
