We’re over a year and a half away from seeing Batman vs. Superman on the big screen, but Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) is already fielding questions about her role of Wonder Woman in the superhero sequel. In a recent interview with Israel’s entertainment show, Good Evening with Guy Pines, Gadot talked about learning she had won the part, fan criticism about her physicality, and the training regimen she’s about to take on.
Also starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck and Amy Adams, Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman is due out July 15, 2015. Hit the jump to see what Gadot had to say.
Here’s a sample of what Gadot said in a recent interview (via Batman-News), along with the video interview below, which is in Hebrew:
It’s been said that you’re too skinny for the part. Wonder Woman is large-breasted, is that going to change?
Hmm. I represent the Wonder Women of the new world. Breasts… anyone can buy for 9,000 shekels and everything is fine. By the way, Wonder Woman is amazonian, and historically accurate amazonian women actually had only one breast. So, if I’d really go “by the book”…it’d be problematic.
So you’re not going to gain a little weight and start eating carbs before filming begins?
It’s the physical preparations that I’m starting now. A very serious training regime – Kung Fu, kickboxing, swords, jujutsu, Brazilian…1,000 and 1 things…I’ll gain body mass.
