Gal Gadot Wants to Create a 'Wonder Woman Bible'
Posted 2017/11/20 2216 0
Gal Gadot is plotting a future of biblical proportions of the DC Extended Universe's Wonder Woman.
After Justice League had the lowest opening in the whole DC Films Universe, many comic book fans are wondering what's next for the universe? In terms of Wonder Woman 2, in a recent interview, Gadot says she wants to explore some of the character's different values and ultimately create a "Wonder Woman Bible." Here's what she had to say about it.
"So many journeys she can experience. She has so many beautiful values. Each chapter is about different values of Wonder Woman. I think that could be really awesome. It's like the Wonder Woman bible."
Gadot’s Wonder Woman debuted in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016. In that film, Diana had mostly been living apart from the modern world for some time but was drawn back into the role of a hero when Batman and Superman needed assistance in defeating the monstrous Doomsday.
This year’s Wonder Woman movie revealed Diana’s origin and how she left her home, the hidden Amazon island of Themyscira, to save man’s world from the influence of Ares, the god of war. In Justice League, Diana took on a new role as the leader of a group of young heroes.
Plot details for the Wonder Woman sequel are currently under wraps, though the film is set to follow the Amazonian Princess during the Cold War as she faces off against the Soviet Union in the 1980s. Patty Jenkins will return to direct, co-write, and produce the sequel with The Expendables co-writer Dave Callaham signed on to pen the film based on a treatment by Jenkins and DC creative chief officer Geoff Johns. As Wonder Woman 2 gears up for production, the wave of Hollywood sexual harassment allegations has been impossible to ignore. Gadot’s own values were made clear when Brett Ratner, who helped finance Wonder Woman, was listed among the accused sexual harassers in Hollywood. Gadot came out with a statement about sexual harassment, and it was confirmed that Brett Ratner will not be involved in Wonder Woman 2. Clearly, misconduct in the workplace is something that Wonder Woman’s values would not allow.
Wonder Woman 2 is currently scheduled to be released in theaters on November 1, 2019.
