Wonder Woman 1984: Gal Gadot On Avoiding Green Screen And What To Expect

Wonder Woman 1984 hits theaters this summer and thanks to its retro trailer, the film is already among the top most anticipated films of 2020. It topped Fandango’s poll and it’s one of my most anticipated movies as well, among others. While press isn’t forthcoming at this time, a few tidbits keep popping up here and there. Gal Gadot spoke to The Huffington Post for an interview and shared a few bits on the upcoming DCEU movie.

Speaking in general terms, Gadot explained that Wonder Woman 1984 will set her on a unique, whole new journey and hopes it will have a profound effect on people thanks to its universal themes and an underlying story that everyone will be able to connect with.

Well, it’s a whole new journey of Wonder Woman on this film. And I hope and think that it’s going to have a profound effect on people because the movie is very universal. And other than the fact that it is packed with action and love story and new villains and the story is so great, I think there’s an under-layer that’s going to speak to each and every one of us.

Keeping in with the trend of big-budget blockbusters trying to reduce their over-reliance on CGI, Wonder Woman 1984 also shot as much in camera as possible, as Gal Gadot explained. That increased the shoot time but it appears the results were well worth it.

On this movie, we made sure that unlike many superhero films when you do it mostly green screen, we made sure to shoot as much as we can for real and on location. And it’s been very complicated and very lengthy and demanding, but it was so worth it.

Finally, while not something to do with Wonder Woman 1984 and its storyline, Gadot talked about her fitness regime for the films, which is primarily what the interview revolved around.

We do a lot of gym strengthening work and a lot of stunt and choreography workouts. And I incorporated some Pilates into the last movie because I was like, “I need to do something that is good for me and not just compress the body,” so we do Pilates as well. And yeah, it’s very intensive. But I must say that after a couple of months of being very exhausted doing it every day, you really get into it and you’ll be amazed by what your body can do.

Wonder Woman 1984 hits theaters on June 5, 2020. It is directed by Patty Jenkins from a script by Patty Jenkins, Geoff Johns and David Callaham and stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright and Connie Nelson with Kristen Wiig and Pedro Pascal. Be sure to visit Appocalypse for more coverage.
