Gal Gadot in her interview with Total Film Magazine, for their special Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice issue, out today. Talk on her love for Lynda Carter’s Wonder Woman, but Gadot is also sure to explain how her Wonder Woman will differ to Carter’s from the 70’s, when it comes to the Wonder Woman solo film .
“Wonder Woman’s a household name, I think, everywhere,” Gadot told Total Film. “She’s an icon. I wasn’t born during theWonder Woman show with Lynda Carter, so I didn’t get to see that [growing up], but I did watch the cartoon.” After getting the role, though, she wanted to take it all in, and watched the Carter series. “She was fantastic. I absolutely love her,” the actress said of her predecessor.
Gadot appreciates the “relevance” of the Lynda Carter version in the 70s, and is confident that her directors are going to do the same for this version in this time. “Zack Snyder is in collaboration with Patty Jenkins, who’s going to direct [the solo Wonder Woman. All of us want to evolve the character because what you saw back then, you’ve already seen,” she said. “So we’re going to give it another layer of interpretation and make her a bit more relevant and a bit more up to date” to go with the modern times.
“The Wonder Woman story is a story that needs to be told,” she concluded. “I’m so happy that it’s me to tell this story. I think that there’s no better time than now, and it’s about time that we showed this amazing heroine on the big screen.
