Many fans have complained about the casting of Gal Gadot ever since it was announced as she’s an unknown actress with little experience, but Zack Snyder assures us that she was by far the best choice for the role saying: “We tested a bunch of actresses, as you can imagine. But the thing with Gal is that she’s strong, she’s beautiful, and she’s a kind person, which is interesting, but fierce at the same time. It’s that combination of being fierce but kind at the same time that we were looking for. She can get serious, but she’s amazingly fun to be around. And by the way, she really held her own with Ben in the screen test. Ben was like, ‘Whoa, that girl is something else!’ That was a good sign, because Ben is very tough in the scene, and he’s big and commanding. Anytime that you’re doing a test like that and you’re looking at the other person, you’re thinking, ‘Okay, that’s good stuff.’ That was part of the process, and over time as we got to know Gal, we found out how amazing she is.” It seemed that Gadot beat out over one hundred women for the role Snyder adds; “I can’t even remember how many in terms of interviews, but for the final test, I think that we tested six actresses. But we interviewed and saw hundreds, so it was a pretty exhausting process.”
Speaking of the trailer, in an interview with MTV, Zack Snyder talk about the latest trailer. If you were worried about the second trailer spoiling the film you’re in luck, as Snyder, the one who made the film says there’s still plenty in store. “I have the benefit of seeing the movie, It’s cool that they think it’s too much and I appreciate people not wanting to know, but there’s plenty that they don’t know. There’s a lot of movie that’s not in the trailer.” Of course this trailer wasn’t the only thing that apparently spoiled the movie. It seems that a fan saw a screening of the film and spoiled the entire film on Reddit. Snyder completely debunks this and calls it “hilarious”, but he also acknowledges that spoilers suck! “Of course I hate it when any spoilers come out!” he said. “You design the movie as a story that evolves as you watch it, so moment-to-moment [you’re thinking], ‘Oh my god, what’s going to happen next? Are they gonna live? Are they gonna die?’ So you want that experience for the audience, as much as you can. If you’re, as an audience member, exploring these articles, looking for answers to questions that you have, maybe you’re okay with knowing before you go. It’s like an individual taste. But like I said, I want people to see the movie without knowing.” It seems there is much more in store for us when we see the film for ourselves.
