Gal Gadot As Wonder Woman

All set to return as the iconic Amazon princess, she has been paid a whooping amount of $10 million dollars for the role. This is 33 times more than what she was paid for the first movie. She was also among the highest-paid female actors in the world last year, according to Forbes, making $34 million.

Gadot made her debut in DC Universe as Wonder Woman in 2016 in the movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Later, she then went to play the role solo in Wonder Woman film (2017).

In an interview with Total Film, she spoke about her character in the franchise. “In the first movie, [Diana] really is a fish out of water, coming from Themyscira into man’s world and learning about the complexities of human life, really. Now, in Wonder Woman 1984, she’s been around. She’s wiser and she’s more mature. Also, she’s guarded and lost all of her friends throughout the years. But she’s still doing the right thing, yet she is different from when we last saw her.”

“In the first movie, we really explored the journey of the coming-of-age, of how Diana Prince became Wonder Woman, and owned her full strengths and powers.” she further added.
