Wonder Woman Has An Accent In Batman V Superman Clip

"You know, it's true what they say about little boys... born with no natural inclination to share," the centuries-old Amazon says of the titular superheroes.

Last night, the global press tour for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice kicked off in Beijing, China. Before Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and Zack Snyder took to the stage, a short-clip from the film was shown. The snippet of footage features new dialogue spoken by Wonder Woman/Diana Prince.

In the video below, listen to the accent Israeli-born actress Gal Gadot uses for the Princess of Themyscira.

In Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice opens March 25, 2016.

  1. Well WW is not American. Makes sense for her to have some sort of accent.

    Well, that's a very generous way of looking at it. A less generous but more realistic way of looking at it is the actress they cast just doesn't have the talent or substance to adopt a different accent to suit the character. If we believe the story's timeline, WW has been around for a few thousand years and has been exposed to English since at least World War I. There is no reason why she couldn't have developed absolute mastery of a language that she has been speaking for 100 years - especially considering she is in her Diana Prince disguise and is trying to pass herself off as a native.

    different accent to suit the character ? since themyscira is not a real place (it may come as a shock to you) so any accent other than american and british is good for it and i'm pretty sure she's not trying to pass herself off as a native.

  2. Who said she's trying to pass herself off as a native? She certainly doesn't look native to this country.  It's not impossible for someone outside of America to be an antiquities dealer. Just STFU with your ridiculous hate.

    "A more realistic way" why is assuming that Gal is a bad actress more realistic? That's the least realisitic way to look at it, it makes no sense that they would cast someone without talent to play a major role in Batman v Superman and to lead her own movie. The most realistic way of looking at it is that they didn't really care what her accent was because they were casting for a fictional race of people lol
