WONDER WOMAN 1984 Star Gal Gadot Explains Why Diana Prince No Longer Wields Her Sword And Shield

Diana Prince may have donned her Golden Eagle armour in the new Wonder Woman 1984 trailer, but there was no sign of her signature sword and shield. Now, star Gal Gadot has shed some light on why that was.

The first trailer for Wonder Woman 1984 certainly got fans talking, but something that was particularly noteworthy in the footage was the fact that Diana Prince seemed to have ditched the sword and shield she wielded in the first movie.

Those weapons were an iconic part of her arsenal in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Wonder Woman, and Justice League, so why aren't they going to factor into her next solo adventure? Well, during a recent interview, star Gal Gadot shed some light on the thought process behind that. 

"We had an intention to let go of the sword because there's something very aggressive with the sword," the actress explains in the video below. "If you have a sword you need to use it, so we wanted to give that up and we didn't feel that the shield was necessary either. She's a goddess, she can fight, she's super strong, and she has the skills and the lasso."

That definitely contradicts what we saw of Diana Prince in the present day, but perhaps the threat of Doomsday was what made her decide to pick up the sword and shield once again! 

What are your thoughts on this explanation from Gadot?
