Gal Gadot is going to be playing Wonder Woman in Batman vs. Superman next March, then getting a solo movie directed by Michelle MacLaren (yay!), then teaming up for two Justice League movies in 2017 and 2019. We’ve been waiting for Gadot to reveal more about the movie in interviews, but — other than the occasional workout photo — we haven’t really heard from her.
Now an interview printed in Hebrew in her native country (Israel) has been translated into English here and here by SuperHeroHype member omermer. She didn’t provide a scan of the original article with her translation, but this appears to be legit.
The interview is long (over 3300 words), so we’ll cut right to the funniest part, when the interviewer tries to politely allude to all the neckbearded whargarblers complaining about Gal Gadot’s boobs, her bicep circumference, her pointy knees, or whatever else wasn’t making their junk sufficiently engorged that day.
Interviewer: “When your casting was announced a lot of comic book nerds said that your body didn’t match Wonder Woman’s.”
Gadot: “Don’t be shy. They said that I was too skinny and my boobs were too small.” [laughs]
Interviewer: “Were you offended?”
Gadot: “I’m really lucky nothing in my life was instantaneous. When I was younger I would take criticism really hard. But now it mostly amused me. The true amazons had one boob so it won’t bother them in their archery. So it’s not going to be like real amazons. We always try to make everyone happy but we can’t.
Interviewer: “But isn’t it embarrassing that your breast size became a topic of international discussion?”
Gadot: “No. After they asked me here, In Israel, if I have eating disorders and why am I so skinny, they said my head was too big and my body was like a broomstick I can take anything. It’s just empty talk. I understand that part of what I’m doing means being exposed. And part of being exposed is being under fire.” (Via)
Her attitude is awesome, and if that’s not enough, she also hinted at which powers we might see Wonder Woman showing off in the DC Cinematic Universe.
Gadot: “Yes, I get to play the strongest most empowering woman ever — Wonder Woman. I’m so grateful and I thank God every day. I want to devour it and enjoy every bite. ”
Interviewer: “By the way, what are Wonder Woman’s powers?”
Gadot: “She has unbelievable endurance. She is exceptionally strong. She can jump really high and practically fly. She knows tons of martial arts styles. She is a strong and serious woman.”
Interviewer: “If, God forbid, you’re in a fight will you be able to defend yourself?”
Gadot: “Why will I be in a fight?”
Interviewer: “Let me ask it differently. If you and I fight…”
Gadot: “I will kick your ass.”
I’m not sure if she means Wonder Woman would take the interviewer in a fight or she means her actual self. I’d pay to watch either, no lie.
