Gal Gadot Talks on Wonder Woman Being 5000 Years Old


Gal Gadot who plays Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and in the upcoming Wonder Woman solo film, spoke exclusively to Empire Magazine ,for the March issue out on newsstands today, where she spoke on her audition for the role and the confirmation of her character being 5000 Years old.

“I mean, I could have guessed,” she admits now. “I thought it was going to be Selina (Kyle), you know? I only knew what role it was when I flew in to test with Ben (Affleck),” she says. “I was very excited. Anytime I had general meetings in LA, I always said that my dream role was to do an empowered, independent woman who doesn’t rely on men.”

On Wonder Woman being 5000 years old and coming out of retirement for the events that take place in Batman v Superman:

“She’s seen it all,” says Gadot. “She has seen what humans can do, so it was very hard for her to come back and fight.”

On there being humor of lighter touches with the character:

In spite of the character’s mystical origins, Gadot insists that there is room for humour and a lighter touch. “I don’t want people to think she is perfect,” she insists. “She can be naughty.”
