Gal Gadot has also spoken some more about the process of landing the role of Wonder Woman in the upcoming DC Universe films at Warner Bros. Pictures. It turns out, at least initially, she had no idea what she was up for. She tells Total Film Magazine:
“It’s been a long process. It started when I was back in Los Angeles and I was told I had a very important audition for a Warner Bros production, but no one said what it was. After a month or two months, they called me and said that they wanted to test me for this movie. It’s crazy, because you feel like you’re working with the CIA because everything is so confidential.
And then, a week later, Zack Snyder called me. He said, ‘OK, I’m not sure you have it in Israel or how big it is in Israel, but have you heard of Wonder Woman?’ And then my jaw literally dropped. I died for a few seconds, then I went back to life. [laughs] Then I tried to get back my coolest voice, and not talk like I’m shaky and overwhelmed.”
One of her fellow DC Universe co-stars is Jason Momoa who has been cast as Aquaman in both his own standalone upcoming film along with several other DC films on the way. Appearing at the recent Dallas Comic Con, he revealed (via YodaSama) that he has been studying New 52 Aquaman comics in preparation:
“So, there’s not really a lot of spoilers I can give away. But the research I’ve done on the New 52 stuff with Geoff Johns, and just researching who he is, he’s amazing. He’s got a lot of powers. He’s extremely tough. He’s super strong. But I’m excited about… there’s a big beautiful map laid out and I wish I could carry it with me. It’ll come out soon enough and you’ll see just how big it’s going to be.”
Both will first be seen in their roles in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” which opens in March next year.
