This spring, moviegoers will see two iconic superheroes going head to head. In a matter of months the Man of Steel comes face to face with the Dark Knight in Batman v.Superman: Dawn of Justice. Directed by Zack Snyder, this anticipated blockbuster brings both Batman and Superman together for the first time in a live action film; and stars the likes of Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Jeremy Irons and Jesse Eisenberg. While viewers anticipate seeing these legends together, Batman and Superman are not the only iconic characters appearing in Dawn of Justice. As many well know making her film debut in Batman v.Superman is none other than the Amazon Princess: Wonder Woman. Since the announcement was made that Gal Gadot would play the superheroine, info on Wonder Woman’s appearance in Batman v.Superman has certainly not been in a secret as the character has been featured in the film’s advertisement; such as the latest trailer. Yet even with everything that has been featured on the character, their still much that we do not know about Wonder Woman’s role in Batman v.Superman; not to mention the DC Extended Universe.
On the matter of Wonder Woman’s role , director Zack Snyder discussed the topic with FilmInk; and while Snyder’s answer is cryptic he does clarify that Gal Gadot’s appearance in Dawn of Justice is more then a mere cameo:
“You have to see the movie, because it gears into the drama of what’s happening, and if you see it in the context of the film, it completely makes sense that the two of them were trying to figure out who she is…”
While these new details reveals nothing exquisite it is good to see that Wonder Woman’s role is vital to the film and the part she will play remains a mystery for moviegoers to figure out for themselves. Yet, if you were looking for more details on Wonder Woman in Dawn of Justice, Zach Snyder had more to say about the Amazon Princess as the director went into details about casting Gal Gadot:
“We tested a bunch of actresses, as you can imagine. But the thing with Gal is that she’s strong, she’s beautiful, and she’s a kind person, which is interesting, but fierce at the same time. It’s that combination of being fierce but kind at the same time that we were looking for. She can get serious, but she’s amazingly fun to be around. And by the way, she really held her own with Ben in the screen test. Ben was like, ‘Whoa, that girl is something else!’ That was a good sign, because Ben is very tough in the scene, and he’s big and commanding. Anytime that you’re doing a test like that and you’re looking at the other person, you’re thinking, ‘Okay, that’s to good stuff.’ That was part of the process, and over time as we got to know Gal, we found out how amazing she is.”
What is the full extent of Wonder Woman’s role in this upcoming blockbuster? It would seem that the only way to find to discover that answer is by watching Batman v.Superman when it hits theaters this Spring. However even with these brief details, it is comforting to get some information on Wonder Woman and her role in the DC Extended Universe. Batman v.Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25th.
