The big screen’s Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot recently spoke to Total Film. She talked about interpreting the iconic character as well as following in the footsteps of Lynda Carter who has become synonymous with the character due to her portrayal in the hit television series:
“Wonder Woman’s a household name, I think, everywhere. She’s an icon. I wasn’t born during the Wonder Woman show with Lynda Carter, so I didn’t get to see that (as a child), but I did watch the cartoon.”
She was fantastic (Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman). I absolutely loved her,Zack Snyder is in collaboration with Patty Jenkins, who’s going to direct (the new Wonder Woman movie). All of us want to evolve the character because what you saw back then, you’ve already seen. So we’re going to give it another layer of interpretation and make her a bit more relevant and a bit more up to date.
The Wonder Woman story is a story that needs to be told. I’m so happy that it’s me to tell this story. I think that there’s no better time than now, and it’s about time that we showed this amazing heroine on the big screen.”
