‘Wonder Woman’ actor that leaked set photos says he’s playing a superhero

A few days ago, French actor Said Taghmaoui shared a couple of photos from the set of Wonder Woman, giving us our first look at Chris Pine as Steve Trevor. After they spread around social media and movie websites, the photos disappeared from Taghmaoui’s Instagram and Facebook accounts.

Clearly he wasn’t supposed to share anything, but in an interview with French magazine Ultra, Taghmaoui reveals even more details about the upcoming movie. Here’s a translation courtesy of Batman News readers @cineloon, @Kumaseiku and @ReversedChris.

After just having finished shooting Infiltrator, you’ve already hopped onto your next project, Warner Bros.’ superhero blockbuster Wonder Woman. What role will you be playing?

I’ll be playing a superhero, but details are still under wraps. I can’t tell you much.

How did you get the role?

Hard work, luck. I was among hundreds of potential candidates, and I slowly became the favorite. It wasn’t easy. It took me three months.

What process will you go through? What kind of preparation will you have to undertake?

I’ll have to go through extensive physical training. Shooting is scheduled to begin in November and it will take about 6 months, in 4 different countries.

Playing a superhero is the dream of those who want to change the world. Which super powers would you like to have and what would you do with them?

Being a super hero was a dream for me as a child. I would have love to travel in time and suppress all the bad things that happened before. I would have also like to have a super strength in order to fight injustice and protect those who are in need and to suppress all mankind sorrows.

Taghmaoui definitely has the body of a superhero! Check out photos and the full interview in the source link below. It starts on page 16.
