Wonder Woman Was Ancient And Retired Until That ‘Batman V Superman’ Mess Started

The upcoming issue of Empire Magazine features interviews with the cast and director of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, including pictures hinting at the next big villain, Zack Snyder on Lex Luthor, and Henry Cavill doing a victory lap. There were also some new details about Wonder Woman, courtesy of Snyder and Gal Gadot.

Snyder told Empire including Wonder Woman in Batman V Superman is what made him realize “we were much closer to the Justice League than we thought. We realized we were one movie away.”

Gadot (who will totally fight you) told the magazine she initially thought she was auditioning to play Catwoman. Instead, she landed the role of Wonder Woman/Diana Prince, who will also totally fight you. Gadot said the two sides of her character — both of which will be seen in Batman V Superman — have their differences.

The interview also revealed the DC Cinematic Universe version of Wonder Woman is going to be more than five thousand years old and was already in retirement when Batman V Superman begins. Gadot said Wonder Woman retired because “she’s seen it all. She has seen what humans can do, so it was very hard for her to come back and fight.”

Five thousand years old? Does that mean we’ll get to see her say, at a pivotal moment, “I’m getting too old for this sh*t?” It’s already sort of implied by her facial expression here:
