During a recent interview with Sci Fi Now, Wonder Woman lead actress Gal Gadot revealed that the film is a "coming of age" story for the heroine -- which kind of makes sense when you consider that it's both an origin story and set a century before Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
“In Batman V Superman, you are being introduced to a very experienced, dark Wonder Woman," Gadot said. "She has been around for a while. Something happened 100 years ago that made her not want to be involved in a man’s world. However, we are going to tell the entire coming of age story of Diana. We’re going to see how she becomes Wonder Woman. She is very different to the Diana that you see in [Dawn Of Justice]. She is more naïve and she’s purer. She is a young idealist who does not yet understand the complexities of life.”
“I think that the heart of the movie is about the coming of age of Diana," she added. "Diana is so passionate about life and she is so passionate about love and truth and justice – and she is very inspiring, even to me. One of the reasons why Patty Jenkins agreed to do this movie was because of the core story. The action is fantastic. You will have action – but we have a very, very solid story to tell.”
The film recently wrapped production and is due in theaters next year.
