'Wonder Woman' premiere bumped to an earlier date, Gal Gadot weighs in on her role


Three weeks before the initial release date, the upcoming "Wonder Woman" solo film will now have a premiere scheduled for June 2, 2017, as noted by Entertainment Weekly.

Actress Gal Gadot who plays the titular hero recently caught up with Digital Spy to discuss the future stand-alone movie for Wonder Woman. "In Batman v Superman, you get a glimpse of who she is but not where she comes from. In Wonder Woman, this would be the first time we ever tell the coming-of-age story of how Diana becomes Wonder Woman. It's very interesting. It has moments of humor, but it's pretty dark," she said. Gadot believes that a movie for the superheroine is long overdue, saying,  "We all saw before the beautiful coming of age of Batman, Spider-Man, Superman. We don't know anything about Wonder Woman."

Furthermore, Gadot said that the film will go back to Wonder Woman's roots. She described her character: "She's this young idealist. She's pure. Very different to the experienced, super-confident, grown-up woman you've seen." 

On another note, the 30-year-old actress tries to become Wonder Woman herself as she juggles her time for her career and her 4-year-old daughter Alma with husband Yaron Versano. "Fame means I have to be very organized. But being a mother means getting up early in the morning even if you're tired because that's your responsibility," Gadot told Mirror. She also expressed how she feels better with her mother looking after her daughter while she's at work. "My mother and my daughter travel with me, so when I'm on the set, my mother will look after Alma and that gives me a lot of comfort," she explained.

Set during the World War I, "Wonder Woman" is directed by Patty Jenkins. Gadot plays the title role along with co-actors Robin Wright, Chris Pine and Connie Nielsen.
