Okay people, time for yet again another news story and this time it isn’t on a Marvel film, but on a DC one. Will wonders never cease? Anyways there’s been a lot of talk about Batman vs. Superman (most of which I don’t care about besides the recent setback the film had) and now we learn of Gal Gadot’s contractual obligations. The following information comes from superherohype:
“Cast in the iconic role of Wonder Woman for Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman late last year, actress Gal Gadot revealed today to Israeli entertainment show “Good Evening with Gai Pines” (via Batman-News) that her contract has her signed for three feature films. Although that may sound like exciting news for fans anxious for Justice League and/or Wonder Woman solo films, it should be noted that multi-picture deals tend to be the norm for big screen franchises and such a contract is not a definite sign of anything in development outside of the May 6, 2016 team-up.”
While this news story is small, at least we have an idea as to how far Gal Gadot’s contract as the character will go. Rather than being signed on to do a six-movie deal like what most of the actors and actresses at Marvel Studios, Gadot’s been signed on for half of that and from the number we can assume the films that she will be in are the following: Batman vs. Superman, Justice League and her own Wonder Woman film right? And with that in mind this means one of two things:
- DC and Warner Bros. are serious about making sure that she sticks to the role
- It doesn’t mean shit because while actors are always signed on to do more in follow-up films they’re easily interchangeable and can be dismissed at any time.
I’ve seen that a lot of hardcore fan boys hope that it’ll be the latter of these two options but I guess we’ll see how this unfolds when she gets into her role eventually in 2016 (damn that sounds so far away now).
