Gadot, Amell Talk "Batman vs. Superman"

Gal Gadot appeared on the Israeli entertainment show "Good Evening with Gai Pines" recently where she confirmed she is locked into a three movie deal when she signed on to play Wonder Woman in the upcoming "Batman vs. Superman" project at Warner Bros. Pictures.

Gadot is tipped to make around $300,000 for her role in the first film, with her filming commitments to begin in May.

Meanwhile another actor, "Arrow" star Stephen Amell, tells Fandango that he has had discussions with the studio and there's still a possibility of his character showing up in a "Justice League" film:

"All we have to do for something like that to happen, or even be a possibility, is continue to take care of business with our show and then we put ourselves in a position – but the important thing is our show. I have had discussions, but I think the gestation process for this project is a lot slower than most people think. I mean, they haven't even shot the next one [Batman vs. Superman]. They haven’t even shot a frame of the movie before the movie everyone thinks is the Justice League movie!"

Update: Amell has used his Facebook page to clarify any confusion that has come up over his quote:

"When I do press, I try and be open, honest and thoughtful. That being said... I find it incredibly discouraging to see a headline like the ones I've been seeing this morning. Headlines that aren't just a stretch, they're totally fabricated. At no point, have I had 'studio level' discussions about any feature films at Warner Bros.

In this particular instance, when I read articles that take a pretty straightforward answer and slap a title on it that has little to no correlation to what I've actually said, it makes it seem as though I'm disrespecting my current position. Which is bulls--t. And why would I do that? I mean... I'm not the smartest dude in the world. (After all... I picked a career in acting.) But would I really just casually subvert a process cloaked in secrecy? A process - by the way - being run by the company who currently employs me. C'MON!

We're making a kick ass show. We will continue to make a kick ass show. And I will continue to interact and provide interesting content for our fans. Because I love our fans. If every once and a while, some dickweed wants to pull a headline out of thin air to generate page views, then that's the price we pay."
