‘Wonder Woman’ Director Talks Casting Of Gal Gadot!
Wonder Woman was a major success to say the least. The most recent DC movie gave hope to the fans who weren’t impressed with BvS, and continued the hype for what Justice League could become. Gal Gadot, the brilliant Actor behind the role of Wonder Woman, was what many consider a perfect person for the role. What kind of casting went into this, though? Did Director Patty Jenkins always imagine someone like Gal taking the helm?
Jenkins talks about the casting of Gadot. She admits that Gadot wasn’t exactly what she had in mind for Wonder Woman, but it turned out better than she could have hoped for!
I remember when I read in the news that Wonder Woman had been cast and my heart sank. I had been talking to the studio for so long about doing it and I was like well ‘that’s that.’ I’m sure we wouldn’t have made the same choice. And then I started paying attention to her, and watching her and looking at her and it was just unbelievable. Frankly, I think they did a better job than I could have because I don’t know that I would have scoured the earth as hard to find her. I don’t know that I would’ve looked internationally. I would have just looked for an American girl. The fact that they found Gal and chose her is a magical gift to me.
Jenkins went on to talk about Gadot, and how she embodies what Wonder Woman is.
She shares every quality with Wonder Woman and that’s no joke. It’s one of those rare things. You need someone who can appear to be Wonder Woman on screen. That’s what you’re looking for—someone who can embody all of those attributes on screen.
Make sure to go check out Wonder Woman, in theaters now!
