Wonder Woman: Gal Gadot Got Emotional While Watching The First Fight Scene

It’s no secret that this year’s Wonder Woman was a huge success. Say what you will about Justice League or the DC Extended Universe in general, but Wonder Woman was an unconditional success, as well as a treat for female audiences, who waited decades to see a female superhero done right in her own film.

This was something that wasn’t lost on the film’s star, Gal Gadot. Speaking with actor Kumail Nanjiana on Variety’s “Actors on Actors” series, Gadot opened up about her emotional moment when watching the film.

“There was this battle scene with all the Amazons and the horses, twirling swords and looking so amazing. And I got so emotional, and I didn’t understand why. And after the movie, I was thinking about it…It was the first time for me — as a woman, a girl, a female — that I saw an image of strong women that are beautiful and confident and can take care of themselves. I was shocked by it, and then I was more shocked by the fact that I never saw anything like that.

“With everything that’s going on in Hollywood and sexual harassment, there’s always the women empowerment conversation. But there cannot be women empowerment if women don’t have this visual in their subconsciousness, and if men don’t have it either. It’s important for boys and men to see that a woman can be super great.”

Nanjiani went on to make the valid point that sometimes one doesn’t understand that they’re missing something until they actually see the thing you’re missing. While this isn’t necessarily the case for girls and women who watch film and TV, it certainly seems to be the case for boys, men, and Hollywood as a whole.
