Gal Gadot Describes Wonder Woman's Powers In Batman Vs. Superman
Zack Snyder on casting Wonder Woman:
"It was so incredibly organic how Wonder Woman came into the story. The whole concept came of, 'Let's not save anything. Let's try it all.' Then Wonder Woman's entrance made us realize we were much closer to the Justice League than we thought. We realized we were one movie away."
Gal Gadot on casting Wonder Woman:
"I mean I could have guessed. I thought I was going to be Selina, you know? I only knew what role it was when I flew into test with Ben (Affleck). I was very excited. Anytime I had general meetings in L.A., I always said that my dream role was to do an empowered, independent woman who doesn't rely on men."
Deborah Snyder on Gal Gadot:
"She just has this magic quality" and noted the other actresses who auditioned were "amazing."
On Wonder Woman's powers:
"...Gadot confirms when it comes to inborn talent, her metahuman heals quickly, jumps to heights where she is almost flying and can really pack a punch."
"She is also over 5000 years old, 'Because she's seen it all,' says Gadot, 'she has seen what humans can do, so it was very hard for her to come back and fight.'"
Gal Gadot on Diana Prince:
"They have the same attitude. Although when she is Diana, she tries to blend in, she is not too outgoing. I don't want people to think she is perfect. She can be naughty."
