Gal Gadot Is Signed For Three Films As Wonder Woman

Gal-Gadot-Is-Signed-For-Three-Films-As-Wonder-Woman

The announcement back in December that Fast & Furious 5 &6 actress Gal Gadot would be playing Wonder Woman in the Batman/Superman / Man Of Steel sequel generated plenty of chatter, both positive and negative. Gadot has defended the decision and, appearing on Israeli entertainment show Good Evening With Gai Pines (as picked up by Batman-news.com), she’s mentioned that she has a three-picture deal to play the character.

Such contracts are not uncommon, particularly in the franchise film business: Marvel routinely signs its leads up to multi-movie deals. Given Warners’ desire to put the Justice League of Bats, Supes, Wonder Woman and the rest on to the big screen together like the Avengers, it makes sense to ensure she’ll be available.

More surprising is Gadot’s revelation about her fee for the first film, a topic most in the business avoid talking about. She’s reportedly earning $300,000 for the Steel sequel, which is just a little more than Jonah Hill pocketed for The Wolf Of Wall Street.

In related Warners superhero news, the man who fills Green Arrow’s suit on television, Steven Amell, was asked by Fandango whether he thought Oliver Queen might end up on the big screen with the other League members. His response was intriguing albeit typically evasive and practical: “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. They haven't even shot a frame of the movie before the movie everyone thinks is the Justice League movie!”

Whoever ends up in the finished film, the next iteration of the DC/Warner superhero movie universe will arrive in cinemas a little later than originally planned, with director Zack Snyder aiming for May 2016.
