The cast of Wonder Woman seems to have bonded quite a bit during their time on set, but the first meeting between Connie Nielsen and Gal Gadot was a bit awkward, to say the least.
Nielsen played the role of Diana's mother Hippolyta in the film, with Diana being of course played by Gadot. Nielsen revealed to Flickering Myth that their parent daughter relationship made things a little weird during their first encounter.
"The first time I met Gal I was in the make up trailer inside a tanning tent getting spray tanned – a uniquely clammy experience – when, as I step out of the tent, naked but for a thong, Gal is whipping off her clothes to get into the tent – and that’s where we said hello the first time. Playing her mother added an extra twist to awkward."
They seemed to have worked things out by the end, however, and both could possibly return in the as yet to be announced sequel. Fans are hoping that the sequel is officially revealed during San Diego Comic-Con, and Patty Jenkins has already expressed she has a plan for it if it happens. It really should be a no-brainer, but this is Holywood, so anything can happen.
Wonder Woman currently enjoys an 84.80 on ComicBook.com's anticipation rankings, and you can find the official description below.
Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action-adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. 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.
