Gal Gadot admits Wonder Woman’s ‘Batman v Superman’ backstory was a mistake

Director Zack Snyder and writer Chris Terrio gave Wonder Woman a backstory in Batman v Superman that had her saying “100 years ago I walked away from mankind. From a century of horrors. Man made a world where standing together is impossible.” It was a bit out of character, and at the Justice League press conference in China today, Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot gave her honest opinion about that line.

While diving deeper into the character with director Patty Jenkins on Wonder Woman, Gadot said that they realized that there’s no way Wonder Woman would ever give up on mankind. “Sometimes in a creative process you establish something that is not necessarily the right decision,” Gadot added. “But then you can always correct it and change it. Wonder Woman will always be there, as far as she’s concerned, for mankind.” You can watch Gadot’s full answer in the video below.
