Wonder Woman is featured on the cover of the Comic Con special issue of Entertainment Weekly, the issue also features interviews with Gal Gadot who plays the title character, along with director Patty Jenkins, along with an exclusive first look photo of the film.
“We knew we wanted to tell a story that would inspire people: women, men, boys, and girls. And we didn’t want to just show a generic story of a superhero coming of age. We wanted her to be full and whole. This is the first time we are telling this story, and I feel like for so many boys, they have great role models to work with. They have Superman and Batman and Spider-man and the list goes on and on. And they are strong and almighty, and they are positive and active and proactive,” Gadot said, adding Wonder Woman should be that kind of figure for young women.
“I feel that I’ve got the opportunity to set a great role model for girls to look up to a strong, active, compassionate, loving, positive woman, and I think it’s so important. It’s about time that somebody will do that, and I’m very privileged and honored to be the one,” she said.
