Forget Batman v Superman, it’s time for DC Extended Universe fans to start considering if Wonder Woman could take on the Man of Steel.
That question was posed to Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot while the actress was out promoting the new film, which will be in theaters in less than a week. When asked if she could take on Henry Cavill, the actor who plays Superman, she seemed pretty confident.
“Sure,” Gadot tells Warner Bros. Brasil in the above video, smiling. “It’s going to be a tight one, but yes.”
While there’s been no official word on whether the Amazon princess will have a reason to battle the Last Son of Krypton, some fans are wondering if Superman – currently dead after his run-in with Doomsday in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – may return in Justice League, but not as the hero he once was. If Superman is somehow turned to the side of Apokolips, it will be up to the Justice League, including Wonder Woman, to stop him.
Wonder Woman currently has a 4.10 out of 5 ComicBook User Anticipation Rating, making it the ninth most anticipated upcoming comic book movie among ComicBook.com readers. Let us know how excited you are about Wonder Woman by giving it your own ComicBook User Anticipation Rating below.
Before she was Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), she was Diana, Princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, Diana meets an American pilot (Chris Pine) who tells her about the massive conflict that’s raging in the outside world. Convinced that she can stop the threat, Diana leaves her home for the first time. Fighting alongside men in a war to end all wars, she finally discovers her full powers and true destiny.
Wonder Woman is directed by Patty Jenkins, from a screenplay by Allan Heinberg Geoff Johns, story by Heinberg Zack Snyder and Jason Fuchs, and stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Lucy Davis, Saïd Taghmaoui, Ewen Bremner and David Thewlis.
Wonder Woman was created by William Moulton Marston for DC Comics. She made her first appearance in All Star Comics #8 in 1941 and has gone on to become a feminist icon and one of DC Comics’ most beloved and recognizable characters. Though she had a popular television series in the 1970s starring Lynda Carter, the Wonder Woman movie will be the character’s first time headlining a film.
Wonder Woman opens in theaters June 2, 2017.
