Wonder Woman 1984: Gal Gadot Explains Diana Prince’s Transformation in the Sequel

Casting Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman was undoubtedly the right choice. Her character has become iconic. In her return as Diana Prince in Wonder Woman 1984, the first reactions to the film were very positive and convincing, giving fans something to look forward to yet again. The first installment introduced Diana during World War I, while the anticipated sequel shall witness her in the year 1984, adapted to living in the retro world of men, away from Themyscira. 

In a recent interview with Gal Gadot ahead of the Christmas Release, the actress explained how Diana undergoes a transformation in the sequel, especially in having to cope without her Amazonian family, and being influenced by the lifestyle of the man’s world.

Gadot talked about how Diana discovered her powers in the first film and became Wonder Woman, and how at the time, she was merely an observer of humanity from the outside, strongly opinionated and expressive about what she thought was right. However, in the sequel and according to Gadot, Diana has a much better understanding of the complexities of mankind as she has lived among them for decades. The film explores Diana at a more personal level, showing that although she is pretty much invincible and super powerful, she suffers the same emotional challenges and vulnerability of any other human, especially because of having to live alone and without aging a day in decades. 

"I think that it was a very good decision that Patty, Geoff Johns, and Dave Callaham made with the script. And, it was delightful to play. I love strong, powerful women, and I love to play them and to see them on screen, but there is something more interesting to me to show the flaws, the imperfections, and the vulnerabilities. This is something that I always look into doing when I portray Wonder Woman," said Gadot.

During the interview, WW84 director Patty Jenkins also spoke of how she wanted the superhero to resonate with the audience. Jenkins told the press that even Diana, Wonder Woman, made and makes the same mistakes like any other human being. She mentioned that there are things that we desire so badly especially when we can’t get over grief, or when we are unable to accept things that are happening in our lives. Jenkins emphasized that she particularly likes the fact that Wonder Woman faces the same challenges and has a similar journey as the villain in the film.

Wonder Woman 1984, starring Gal Gadot as Diana Prince, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Pedro Pascal as Maxwell Lord, and Kristen Wiig as Barbara Minerva, will have it’s theatrical release on the 16th of December 2020, and make its way to HBO Max on December 25 in 4K Ultra HD. Don’t miss it!
