Wonder Woman 1984 star Gal Gadot has taken to social media to share one of her earliest memories shortly after being cast as Diana Prince: a costume fitting for 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

While Gal Gadot had appeared in the Fast & Furious movies when she was cast as the DC Extended Universe's Wonder Woman by Zack Snyder, it was Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice that served as her breakout role. Fans had their doubts heading into the 2016 release (could she even act?), but Gadot exceeded all expectations with a small, but memorable part.

Since then, the actress has continued to knock it out of the park as Diana Prince, starring in Wonder Woman, Justice League, and the recently released Wonder Woman 1984

Promoting Patty Jenkins' DC Comics sequel, Gadot recently took to Twitter to share one of the first photos she took while decked out in Wonder Woman's costume during an early costume fitting. It's interesting seeing how much that evolved over time, but the actress still 100% looks the part. 

It turns out that casting the then relatively unknown actress as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman was a great move on Snyder's part, and one of the best things he did for the DCEU.

Take a look at the photo shared by Gadot below:

5. Diana Prince Embraces Being A Hero


Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice established that Diana Prince had been staying off the radar since first leaving Themyscira during World War I, but Wonder Woman 1984 definitely goes some way in retconning that. While the Amazon Warrior clearly isn't known to the public, she is very much a superhero who doesn't shy away from saving the day (even if it means destroying security cameras).

By the time the sequel ends, it feels a lot like Diana has really accepted her place as a hero to the world (hearing her voice is what leads to the recanting their wishes). As we head into the present day - a logical next step for the franchise - it's a must that we see Wonder Woman step out of the shadows.

The groundwork for that is definitely laid in this sequel, and now that Diana has helped save the world very publicly on two separate occasions, we should be able to see how that affects the hero. For starters, we'd love to know what the government makes of her, not to mention those she's crossed paths with over the decades. Cheetah doesn't die, so perhaps an older Barbara could even return?

4. A New Love Interest


After spending decades mourning the loss of Steve Trevor, Wonder Woman is finally reunited with her lost love in the sequel. They only get a few days together, but after saying goodbye for a second time, it feels like Diana Prince may finally be able to move some extent at least, anyway. 

That could mean it's time for a new love interest, and there are quite a few exciting possibilities. 

Henry Cavill's Superman would be an interesting, albeit controversial, option, though Trevor Barnes might also be a good direction to take things in for the hero. Kaisa and Mala (two female warriors from Themyscira) would offer arguably bolder, more interesting directions to take Diana's love in, though, and a lesbian relationship could help break ground in a lot of unprecedented ways here.

3. The Invisible Jet


This comes out of nowhere in Wonder Woman 1984, but it turns out that Diana Prince has somehow found a way of using the Lasso of Truth to turn things invisible. Despite only previously trying it on a coffee mug, she manages to turn her and Steve Trevor's jet completely see through in this sequel.

While cloaking technology exists in the present day, it would be pretty cool to learn that Wonder Woman has paid tribute to Steve by learning to fly a jet, and that it turns invisible on a whim.

Of course, with Wonder Woman 1984 heavily implying that Diana can fly now, we're not sure how necessary this would be. One way to make it work would be by having the hero become a secret agent - white costume and all - with some sort of aircraft serving as a moving base for the Amazon warrior.

2. Steve Trevor Returns...Again?


Could the third time be the charm for Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor? While we would like to see Diana finally move on, it is possible Chris Pine's character could be resurrected permanently. 

In Wonder Woman 1984, he mentions having vague memories of going somewhere when he died, so what if the hero is able to visit a version of Heaven or Hell in Wonder Woman 3? Earlier this year, in Wonder Woman #757, The Phantom Stranger actually took one of her friends to Heaven to face judgement, a move that prompted Diana to report to the gates of Heaven itself to get them back.

On a similar adventure (perhaps tied to her father, Zeus), why can't Wonder Woman come face-to-face with Steve again, this time taking him back to Earth and making him part of the present day DCEU? It would certainly help ensure Diana gets a happy ending at the conclusion of this trilogy.

1. A Team-Up With Asteria


By far the biggest Wonder Woman 3 tease comes in a mid-credits scene. Earlier in the movie, Diana tells Steve that her Golden Eagle armour was first worn by a warrior called Asteria, and she alone, stayed behind holding back the attacking waves of man so her sisters in arms could flee to the safety of their new home, Themyscira (the games at the start of the sequel are held in her honour).

Wonder Woman was unable to find out what happened to her fellow Amazon, but this teaser reveals that she's alive and protecting people in secret very much like how Diana has for decades.

It feels like there's a story to tell here, and this reunion could lead to a lot of exciting new stories. It would be kind of crazy if that TV show was somehow made canon, but whatever the case may be, we want to see more of Lynda Carter in the DCEU, and Wonder Woman 3 might be a good start.

We usually post news here late, sir.
You must have seen it elsewhere.

Still remember people whining because "B-but she has no tatas!!!"

Heh, good times.

...those were not. :P

@Doomsday8888 - between that and brie has no a$$ really shows the priorities some have with casting choices. Never performance, just looks.
BatmanBeenDrinking - 12/29/2020, 2:57 PM
@Origame - I mean it's still looks like they went with just looks because gal Gadot is a goddess without a doubt but she lacks as far as talent. And while she is growing into the role (at a snail's pace) I still think it should have been offered to another actress with more talent.
dragon316 - 12/29/2020, 5:18 PM
@Origame - I wouldn’t talk fan casting is all based on looks not work experience
Origame - 12/29/2020, 7:30 PM
@BatmanBeenDrinking - i mean i think thats debatable. But if theres one thing we can agree on, whether shes right for the role or not, it has nothing to do with her tits.
bman263 - 12/29/2020, 9:34 PM
@Doomsday8888 - My issues were alwyas about her limited chops as an actress. After 4 appearances they still stand. Gal can't act to save her life.
Nemesis17then - 12/29/2020, 11:05 AM
Gal is very good in the role but I said this when it was announced that Jenkins will direct Rogue Squadron. She is overrated and there was no reason for people to be excited for her as a director. No director should be given full control because he/she shot one good movie (Monster) and a mediocre-good one (wonder woman). Patty is a hack plain and simple. It is evident in ww84 that she was trying to focus on feminism and girl power too much and forgot that the movie needed a good plot and ACTION SCENES. The actions scenes were atrocious for 2020 standards and the slow motion was used way worse than in the 1st ww. Kathelyn Kennedy did it again by hiring a director that still hasn't proven his value and giving him/her the reign of the future of the franchise. She will either get fired for creative differences after that huge backlash or we will get a SW movie with as much action as that of WW84 and a mediocre-bad plot. As for WW3 i give her 60% chance to return. WW can be better and deserves a better director

Still not big on the tiara. The point should be up, not down imo.
Matchesz - 12/29/2020, 11:08 AM
@THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - I never had any interest or paid attention in WW growing up but i've always thought this

@THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - fixed it.
KWilly - 12/29/2020, 11:07 AM
Say what you will about her acting, but this woman LOOKS EXACTLY like how WW should look. And she's a decent actress too (except for that Justice League phone-in)
teefurtree - 12/29/2020, 5:47 PM
@KWilly - Eh, close, but not "exactly" in my book. She still doesn't scream to me strength, ferocity, and confidence. Maybe that's a combination of build/athleticism, how one carries themselves, range of facial expressions...I don't really know.

Also there are actresses who would on looks alone more resemble Wonder Woman in the comics or what have you; Jaime Alexander for example (in my opinion).
bman263 - 12/29/2020, 9:38 PM
@KWilly - "Say what you will about her acting"
Bro acting the part well is way way more important looking the part.
She was hired to act not just look the part
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 12/29/2020, 11:07 AM
I liked Gal in WW, but I think she knocked it out of the park in WW84. The performance she gave in the goodbye scene to Trevor was especially good.

That dude behind Gal on his hands and knees might have the best job ever.

@obredaan - That is Michael WIlkinson the genius behind the suits of the movie

I'm so glad they've kept her signature costume intact after all this time.
