Gal Gadot Calls The WONDER WOMAN Solo Film "Pretty Dark"
Though a recent report indicated that DC and Warner Bros. were going to add some humor and beef up fun character moments in their upcoming DC Extended Universe movies, we haven't heard whether or not that mentality extends to Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman solo film. If these comments from star Gal Gadot are accurate, fans should expect for the dark tone of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to continue in that movie. She told DigitalSpy:
"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 humour, but it's pretty dark. We all saw before the beautiful coming of age of Batman, Spider-Man, Superman. We don't know anything about Wonder Woman."
"Moments of humor" sounds promising. For the millionth time, I don't think that these DC films need to ape the tone of Marvel Studios' movies, but I do think they could serve to lighten up just a little bit more and have some more moments of levity in between deadly serious philosophical conversations that tend to pop up. I don't mind that these movies have a darker tone, but if these characters could just have a little bit of fun while they're battling supervillains, I think it'd go a long way toward making people have more fun watching them.
Gadot also echoed sentiments she's mentioned before about how this version of Wonder Woman will be different than the one we saw in BVS, so I'm interested to see the shades she brings to this character over a 100 year time span between the stories.
