Gal Gadot Thought She Was Auditioning for Catwoman in Batman V Superman


When an actress like Gal Gadot gets called in to audition for Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder, she makes her own assumptions - and Wonder Woman wasn't part of her initial thoughts.

"I mean, I could have guessed. I thought it was going to be Selina [Kyle aka Catwoman], you know?" she admitted to Empire in a new interview. The actress wasn't told the role, so her assumption was fairly logical.

When she got called back to go test with Ben Affleck, who plays Bruce Wayne/Batman in the film, she was told what role she was actually trying for, that of Wonder Woman.

"I was very excited," Gadot said. "Anytime I had general meetings in LA, I always said that my dream role was to do an empowered, independent woman who doesn't rely on men."

Can't go much further with that than Wonder Woman, who was raised on Paradise Island with only women for company.

Gal Gadot debuts as Wonder Woman in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice on March 25 alongside Affleck and Henry Cavill reprising his role as Superman, following that up with her own solo feature film, Wonder Woman, which is filming now, and the full team adventure, Justice League after that.
