Wonder Woman Starts Filming Soon, Two Possible Villains
While Gal Gadot has yet to be appear on-screen as Wonder Woman, the model turned actress has an incredibly busy schedule ahead of her.
Now that production on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has wrapped, the Israeli star will step in front of the cameras for principal photography on the standalone Wonder Woman movie in November.
And when filming on that exciting project ends, Gadot will join the cast of Zack Snyder's Justice League Part One in Spring 2016, ahead of its release in 2017.
Warner Bros. is pulling no punches in its assault on Marvel's box office supremacy and is pouring hundreds of millions of dollars into its hugely ambitious DC Comics cinematic universe.
Alongside Gadot, actor Chris Pine has also been confirmed for the Wonder Woman spinoff – the Star Trek will play the role of Steve Trevor.
Other actors rumoured to be on the studio's radar are Eva Green (300: Rise of an Empire) and Sean Bean (Game of Thrones) – who are being eyed for the villainous roles Circe the Sorceress and Ares the God of War respectively.
Monster director Patty Jenkins will direct the blockbuster following Breaking Bad's Michelle MacLaren departure.
Producer Deborah Snyder spoke about the appointment of Jenkins and confirmed that the movie would start filming later this year.
She said: “We still wanted a female director and we found Patty Jenkins, who had the right vision and the same vision that we had for the character”.
“We’re really happy that we’re going to be going into production in November, it’s been a really great process. We’ve tried to hire as many female members of the crew as possible”.
Wonder Woman is scheduled to hit screens on June 23, 2017, and Batman V Superman opens March 25, 2016.
