When DC Comics writers announced Diana Prince and her Wonder Woman alter ego would be outed as queer, fans were delighted, and those among the LGBTQ community were excited to have a new connection to the DC Comics universe. Almost instantly, fans wanted to know if that meant Gal Gadot would be incorporating this new aspect of Wonder Woman's personality into the upcoming live action film, Wonder Woman. Unfortunately, Wonder Woman was already too far into production by that point to alter Gadot's character, but it seems Gal has been giving Diana Prince's love life serious thought because she just announced the perfect love interest for a Wonder Woman sequel.
Wonder Woman Star Gal Gadot Purrs For Former Catwoman Halle BerryGal Gadot has been intrigued by the idea of exploring Wonder Woman's sexuality ever since she was first asked about the possibility that Diana Prince might not be completely straight in the live action Wonder Woman film, according to Comicbook. Proof of this came when Gadot appeared as a guest on Israel's Good Night with Guy Pines and was asked by the talk show host to speak about her film character's love interests.
While Chris Pine plays the love interest to Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman character, the actress says she wants a change for a Wonder Woman sequel and she already has a new love interest in mind. More than anything, Gadot hopes Halle Berry will be free to be Diana Prince's new red hot flame.
"I saw her the other day, Halle Berry. She's so beautiful. Wow! She's gorgeous! So…yeah, I could do it with her," confessed Ms. Gadot.
Even though Diana Prince's sexual orientation was never opened for discussion on the Wonder Woman set, Gal has commented that it made sense for the heroine to embrace pansexuality, considering Diana's home island of Themyscira is an all female community. Ms. Gadot has pointed out that, even without males in the society, Themyscirans must still have needed to fulfill needs for love and desire.
"In this movie she does not experience any bisexual relationships. But it's not about that. She's a woman who loves people for who they are," added the Wonder Woman star. "She can be bisexual. She loves people for their hearts."
Gal Gadot Spills Details About Her Second BabyGal Gadot's husband, Yaron Versano, must not be bothered by her girl crush on Halle Berry because People just revealed that the couple is expecting baby number two and judging by Gadot's social media postings, they couldn't be happier about it. Gadot shared a picture of herself being held by her husband, and the two joined hands together to form a heart over Gal's belly with their fingers.
"So excited to share this wonder with you… #mommyforthesecondtime," Ms. Gadot captioned the image.
Gal gave birth to Alma in 2011 and since that time, Ms. Gadot has developed a new found interest in feminism and in her film roles, endeavoring to do what she can to give powerful female role models for Alma to admire. Gal says it's time for Hollywood to give girls confident and positive female superheroes to emulate, instead of continuing the trend of princesses and damsels in distress so common in film and on television.
Additionally, Gal says she has had to explain to Alma that her role as Wonder Woman is really make believe, a concept which her young daughter initially didn't understand.
"She came to visit me many times on set, and one time I was wearing the Wonder Woman costume, and then she asked me, 'Mummy, if you wear a tiara does that mean you're a queen and then I'm a princess?' I said, 'Well, I'm playing dress up, this is dress up.'"
Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, and Robin Wright, will swing into theaters on June 2, 2017.
