Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman contract is a three picture deal; will earn $300,000 for Batman vs Superman

Jan. 22, 2014by: Alex Maidy

While we still have little to go on regarding any plot or casting beyond Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, and Gal Gadot in BATMAN VS SUPERMAN, we can begin to put some pieces together as information makes its way out. With almost two years before BATMAN VS SUPERMAN hits theaters, there is going to be a lot of conjecture and rumor until official word comes from the cast, crew, or studio.

So, with that in mind, we can go ahead and take Gal Gadot's recent comments regarding her contract to play Wonder Woman as fact and draw conclusions from there. According to Batman News, Gadot revealed in an interview that her Wonder Woman contract is for three movies. While that isn't anything too shocking, the actress also revealed she will be paid $300,000 for her role in BATMAN VS SUPERMAN.

While Gadot is still an unproven commodity in the role so I understand hedging their bets, but even Jeremy Renner's small role as Hawkeye in THE AVENGERS earned him over a million. I would think the low pay is more indicative of the smaller size of her role in BATMAN VS SUPERMAN rather than her worth. As we have all been cautious and nervous with superhero films overloading their rosters of talent, WB and DC could very well be just setting the chess board before going all out. If this proves true remains to be seen.

BATMAN VS SUPERMAN hits theaters on May 6, 2016.

This casting isn't as bad as people are making it out to be. Give her a chance! I personally think she'll be ok.

yeah bc that's what everyone hopes when they hire someone that they will be OK and that is their only hope that she might possibly against all odds be OK. What are the odds she loses her accent since she hasn't done it once in anything I have seen?

Isn't it about time that Super-Bat logo also got the WW added to it? It'd look like the Bat symbol suddenly grew boobs (unlike Gal Gadot).

The more I think about her as Wonder Woman, the more I don't like it. I just don't see it. She not a good actress either. She is average at best. I really hope they don't do a standalone movie. No way could she carry a whole movie. I guess will all find out in 2016.

trust me they have given up on that character, this is purely to round out the roster. if she gets a stand alone movie its budget and all round talent will be terrible. no one wants to see a WW solo movie....NO ONE

Glass ceiling, I guess. I mean, if the famously stingy Marvel paid that much for a small role, then I can't imagine any other reason to pay her so little, except that she's not one of the big burly men who are going to be punching each other. Man, DC is gonna mess Wonder Woman up so bad.

Though my first thought was "wow, 300k, that's a ton of money," so that shows what I know...

Gadot was obviously no one's first choice to play Wonder Woman going by all of the comments on this board, but it's not the worst casting in the world. They could have obviously casted better for the role, but I'm wiling to give her the benefit of the doubt. Just like I think most people on this website should do when it comes to Affleck playing Batman. Snyder casts well for his films and I remember being unsure of Akerman for Watchmen and I thought she held more than her own in a colorful cast

So until I see any footage of her in motion, I think she'll do just fine.

I have a feeling you would be posting this exact same post if Paris Hilton was cast as Wonder Woman.

No I wouldn't. So you can stop pretending that you know what I would or wouldn't post.

Just because I like to stay optimistic and find the positives in something doesn't make me wrong or delusional.

I'm sorry, but Gadot is as bad as they come. To seriously claim she is any good is the exact same as claiming Paris Hilton is good. Their talents are on par. Some things are objective, but acting talent as bad as Gadot's is not. I can't think of a single serious actress working today that is as bad as Gadot. Other than Paris Hilton, though she isn't a serious actress.

I do know something about movies. I think someone has too much time on their hands to keep replying to my posts and criticizing. Do you know who that is ConMan? I'll let you think about it. Let me know if you figure out the answer.

I agree with you Soloist, let's wait for some footage before we completely dismiss the movie and the actors cast in it. DERKESTHAI, if you haven't seen any actresses worse than Gal Gadot other than Paris Hilton then you must only watch a movie or two per year because they're out there. These people were cast for a reason and maybe they will be horrible, it's ok to think that but the fact that you feel the need to make completely ridiculous statements to tear down someone remaining positive

There is no way anyone can watch ANY of Gadot's acting roles and truthfully say she was any good. Her acting reminds me of people like Paris Hilton or Pamela Anderson trying to act. And I'm not over exaggerating. She is just bad. I wouldn't be surprised if she is getting these roles through some form of nepotism or couch casting. Actors as bad as she is just don't make it as far as she did without being a celebrity. They are usually stuck as being extras on a SyFy original movie.

Gale Gadot is just a horrendous actress. I am baffled how anyone can support her casting, because she is without a doubt the single worst actor in the Fast & Furious movies (and that's saying a lot). It's like she is always reading from cue cards just off screen.

Gadot is such a huge casting error...

She will never appear in a standalone film. She's a terrible actor who is completely wrong for the character. Had they cast who they should have (Alexandra Daddario) imagine the buzz among fans right about now.

Daddario? Heck no, this isn't Percy Jackson. Oh yeah, of course, her cup size. I guess that's what fans would be buzzing about.

Like it or not Gadot is chosen, don't like it? don't watch it I guess

Daddario is a good enough actor. I personally find her to be an affable, likable actor who is the best part of numerous otherwise weak movies. As a young actor, she hasn't always had the best choice of parts. There's not much that can be done with lines like "Do your thing, cuz." She has given a commanding, sexy performance in True Detective, easily the best material she's had to work with. Plus, I have a soft spot for someone who has overcome multiple learning disabilities to become an actor.

zzzaac but that's the problem, MOS wasnt nearly the hit they thought financially or critically and now you shit on the fan-base and people wont go and will wait o rent it where it will be pirated millions of times all bc they couldn't put a quality actress in the role after already shitting on most of that fan base with Affleck, who I actually think will be good, but I am in the minority on that.

Jeremy Renner is a poor comparison. Chris Hemsworth or Chris Evans would be a better comparison. I believe both of them got paid 250K for their first Marvel film. With inflation, 300K sounds about right.

Every photoshopped photo I've seen of Gadot as WW looks pretty good...well actually, very good. She's got the looks for sure (love the "foreign" angle they've gone with...both in looks and accent - well done WB's). Fingers crossed her acting skills scrub up well.

I'm against having the Wonder Woman character in the film at all...it's supposed to be a Superman movie, it seems overcrowded already...but I don't mind the casting of Gal Gadot one bit. So what if she's an unproven commodity? Wasn't Henry Cavill? How many people could even spell his name before they cast him in MoS? And who cares if WB is signing actors/actresses for cheap? Marvel does the exact same thing with their directors. As long as it doesn't effect the quality of the performances, then

I absolutely have my reservations about this Superman Vs. Batman film after the very mediocre MoS, but hopefully this movie turns out as great as it can possibly be.

Jeremy Renner

Renner was a two-time Oscar Nominee before The Avengers. Even if he came in for one scene and spent the whole time talking about ass-rot, he'd still get $1M+.

And Renner is one of the best actors that is involved in the Marvel Universe along with Downey Jr, Jackson, and Hiddleston.

So yeah, the comparison is weak. Really weak.

wait

Did you just compare Jeremy Renner to Gal Gadot? I'm pretty sure Jeremy Renner was a bit bigger of a star when he made the Avengers than Gal Gadot is currently. All this is speculation right now, but it seems to me like they signed Gadot on the cheap simply because they could, considering she is exactly that, an unknown commodity, and a substantial risk.
