Gal Gadot debuted as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but fans are going to get to know Diana a lot better in Wonder Woman, the character's first ever solo live-action movie. However, Wonder Woman takes place a century prior to the events of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, so Wonder Woman may not be quite what she was in her debut.
"Well the character is different," Gadot says during an interview on the Wonder Woman set. "I feel like with the character that I played in Batman v Superman was more realistic and more mature and more a woman, a mature woman. In this one, this is the coming of the age of Diana. She starts as a very naïve girl. Naive, positive, happy, and seeking for good, but in Batman v Superman she's been through a lot."
The difference will be audible as well. Gadot used a particular accent when delivering her lines in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but it is an accent that Diana only acquires after having spent 100 years in the world of man. "Her accent in Wonder Woman is more Themysciran," Gadot explains. "She still has some of her Themysciran accent in Batman v Superman, but she knows hundreds of languages. Starting here in Themyscira, they're well educated. She knows to speak every language that you can think of, and in this one, she has a heavier accent, a Themysciran accent and in Batman v Superman it's lighter, but it's still there."

Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers...and her true destiny.
