‘Batman V Superman’: Zack Snyder Talks Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman Casting And His Disdain For Movie Spoilers

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, directed by Zack Snyder, who was interviewed by FilmInk about Gal Gadot’s casting as Wonder Woman. Snyder said that he tested tons of actresses with only six making it to the final stages. In the Dawn of Justice movie trailer, it looks like the superheroes are all teaming up against one foe. The villain/antagonist is believed to be Doomsday.

Interestingly enough, Snyder does talk about the scene in the trailer where the DC Trinity of characters are united and a joke is made about Batman and Superman wondering who’s with who. Snyder says that one would have to see the film to understand that scene in its context.

“You have to see the movie, because it gears into the drama of what’s happening, and if you see it in the context of the film, it completely makes sense that the two of them were trying to figure out who she is.”

The training for the Dawn of Justice movie wasn’t for the feint of heart, either, as Ben Affleck was reportedly impressed with Gadot’s performance when working with her. Apparently, she was no slouch when it came to her training for the Batman v. Superman film. She posted quite a few photos on social media of herself climbing walls along with a few gym mirror selfies. It’s easy to picture her in that other comic book-inspired cinematic universe as the next Spider-Man (or Spider-Woman, maybe even Spider-Gwen) considering how well she clung to the climbing wall.

Zack Snyder talked about how Gal worked with Ben.

“And by the way, she really held her own with Ben in the screen test. Ben was like, ‘Whoa, that girl is something else!’ That was a good sign, because Ben is very tough in the scene, and he’s big and commanding. Anytime that you’re doing a test like that and you’re looking at the other person, you’re thinking, ‘Okay, that’s good stuff.'”

It Batman v. Superman, this seems to mirror her support at the end of the movie trailer where she seems to fend off what looks to be a serious blast coming from Doomsday with her shield; but, not much else is known about her intervention that looked to be unexpected to both Superman and Batman. This shows not only Gadot’s fortitude playing the part, but this characteristic carries over into Wonder Woman.

That said, Gadot has been physically conditioning herself for the new Wonder Woman solo movie and production began for the film back in November. The film is to be directed by Patty Jenkins. Hints have been tweeted by photographer Clay Enos as he made his flight to England and producer Geoff Johns revealed a nice shot of large building with a nicely manicured lawn, according to Movie Web.

The Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice movie was reported to have been leaked online via Reddit and Zack Snyder isn’t too keen on this, as he’s found out who has already seen the leaked footage, at least in the form of a description, according to Inquisitr.

Snyder gave his take on the leaked footage, and though he does acknowledge that certain, individual DC Comics fans attribute knowing about the movie before it’s released as a matter of “individual taste,” the Dawn of Justice director doesn’t generally hold such movie spoilers in a positive light, according to MTV.

“Of course I hate it when any spoilers come out!”

In fact, he finds that finding out how things unfold or unravel during the course of the film would lead to a much enjoyable experience. Snyder feels that though reading the movie spoilers online before they are made public in the cinema would be okay with some readers, it is not his preference.

“I want people to see the movie without knowing.”
