We may like Zack Snyder’s films more or less, but there is a reality that no one can deny: the actors who have worked with him adore him. The last to thank the director for the opportunity he gave her by signing her as Wonder Woman for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was Gal Gadot.
The Israeli actress has shared a photo that Snyder already showed a few days ago, and that includes her first camera test as Diana Prince.
Let us remember that, before conquering the box office with Wonder Woman, the solo film of the DC heroine, we could see the Amazon princess of Gadot in the superhero meeting of Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill), with these a punches until they discovered that their mothers were called the same (oh, what jokes the ‘Martha moment’ has given us ).
“Zack Snyder took this photo of me the day I did the camera test for Batman v Superman with Ben,” the actress explained in an emotional message: “I came to Los Angeles for 30 hours while shooting a movie in Tel Aviv. But I wanted the role of Wonder Woman so much that the trip was worth it. ”
“I will always be grateful to Zack for choosing me and believing that I could give life to Diana. I had no idea what the future would bring when they took this photo of me, seeing it makes me very nostalgic,” she added: “It is also proof that everything It happens for a reason. I was about to quit acting … And then this happened. ”
While Gadot owes Snyder a lot for this great opportunity, he is also indebted to the actress, who was, without exaggeration, the highlight of Batman v Superman. The only thing critics and audiences agreed on when it came to this film was Diana’s brilliant introduction, which stole all the spotlight thanks to the actress’s great performance.
‘Wonder Woman 1984’: Warner Bros. wants the superheroine at the Oscars. Later, under the orders of Patty Jenkins, the character has continued to grow by leaps and bounds and, despite the fact that its sequel may not have had as much impact as the first Wonder Woman, the Amazon continues to rule in the current DC film universe.
So much so that the third part of the Wonder Woman saga is already in development with Jenkins and Gadot. Before that, we will see her in Zack Snyder’s Justice League (March 18 on HBO), the filmmaker’s cut of the battered Justice League.
