Batman vs. Superman: Gal Gadot on Becoming Wonder Woman

People might not have been quite as shocked when it was announced that Gal Gadot is Wonder Woman in Batman vs. Superman as they were when it was announced that Ben Affleck is Batman.

But, people were still a little surprised that the Fast and Furious actress was picked, given her lack of resemblance to the physique of Wonder Woman portrayed in DC Comics. Gadot addressed those complaints on the Israeli entertainment show Good Evening with Gai Pines.

"I represent the Wonder Woman of the new world. Breasts anyone can buy for 9,000 shekels and everything is fine,” Gadot said. “By the way, Wonder Woman is Amazonian, and historically accurate Amazonian women actually had only one breast -- so, if I’d really go 'by the book,' it’d be problematic."

Gadot is already deep in the workout preparation to play Wonder Woman, and from the sounds of it, she’ll be ready to don her iconic costume when Batman vs. Superman starts filming in Michigan in the New Year. She clearly is ready to play a Wonder Woman who is a strong, modern woman.

"It’s the physical preparations that I’m starting now -- a very serious training regimen – Kung Fu, kickboxing, swords, jujutsu, Brazilian, a thousand and one things,” she said. “I’ll gain body mass."
