Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice
Jason Momoa gives us his thoughts on playing Aquaman.
Gal Gadot gave an interview to Israel This Week, and this is what she said about playing Wonder Woman, despite all the criticisms of her being too skinny.
“Playing Wonder Woman is a once in a lifetime opportunity. I can’t describe to you how much I wanted to play this character without even knowing I wanted to play her. I don’t want to play a damsel in distress that needs to be saved. I don’t like it when women in the movies are shown as the victims. I always thought that if I could send out a message I want to show the strong side of a woman and how she can handle tough situations.”
Good for her for standing above all the citicisms.
“When I saw the sizzle trailer, that was the first I had seen of it. I saw that at the same time as everyone else, literally. I was excited about it. Because when you’re shooting a movie you can kind of get a sense of the tone of it from the director and how they’re directing it, but in terms of how you shoot it, the lighting and everything, you’re not aware of it. Because I’m just in a scene and I’m talking to another actor but the way he’s seeing it in his head, where it’s grittier or darker, I’m not acting grittier or darker. All that stuff comes in with the edit. So I’m excited by it. All the actors are really interesting in those parts and it should be fun. I hope people go on that ride with us. Because we’re making it our own, we’re taking a lot from the ‘Ultimate Fantastic Four’ but I think we’re humanizing these characters in a way that’s never been done.”
