Gal Gadot is Wonder Woman because she turned down a major ‘Man of Steel’ role

Gal Gadot impressed everyone in the room during her Wonder Woman audition for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but she almost didn’t have that chance!

While speaking to Israeli website Xnet, Gadot spoke about how important karma is in her life, and she gave a very revealing reason why! Here’s a rough translation via Bing Translator:

When I was 4 months pregnant with (my daughter) Alma, I got an offer to play the villain character in Superman. If I wasn’t pregnant I’d take the job, and there’s no way they would take me now to be Wonder Woman.

Faora-Ul

Based on Gadot’s comments, it sounds to me like she was offered the role of Faora in Man of Steel. A role that ultimately ended up going to Antje Traue instead.

This just goes to show you that everything happens for a reason! If Gadot wasn’t pregnant, she would have taken that Man of Steel role and never had a chance to be Wonder Woman — a much bigger (and more lucrative) part.
