The first movie isn’t even out, but Wonder Woman star Gal Godot teases an idea she has for the sequel, according to Batman-news.com, Godot is all in for her character to have a relationship with another woman.
Godot sat down for an interview with Israeli talk show Good Night with Guy Pines. Talk eventually turns to speculation about whether or not Wonder Woman will pursue a same-sex relationship. Godot didn’t shy away from responding about that and which actress she would like to lasso into the perspective role. The interview is in Hebrew, but the helpful folks at batman-news.com offer a translation:
“I saw her the other day, Halle Berry. She’s so beautiful. Wow! She’s gorgeous! So… yeah, I could do it with her.”
Wonder Woman’s sexual preference is a hot topic of late, ever since the announcement to Comicosity.com by Wonder Woman comic book writer Greg Rucka believing the character to be queer. Here part of Rucka’s quote:
“This is inherently the problem with Diana: we’ve had a long history of people — for a variety of reasons, including sometimes pure titillation, which I think is the worst reason — say, ‘Ooo. Look. It’s the Amazons. They’re gay!’
And when you start to think about giving the concept of Themyscira its due, the answer is, ‘How can they not all be in same sex relationships?’ Right? It makes no logical sense otherwise.
It’s supposed to be paradise. You’re supposed to be able to live happily. You’re supposed to be able — in a context where one can live happily, and part of what an individual needs for that happiness is to have a partner — to have a fulfilling, romantic and sexual relationship. And the only options are women.
But an Amazon doesn’t look at another Amazon and say, ‘You’re gay.’ They don’t. The concept doesn’t exist.”
Of course any speculation about a love interest for the sequel (if, indeed, there is one) is pure speculation at this point.
Gal Godot made her debut as the Amazonian warrior in 2016’s Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice and reprises the role in the character’s first solo film, Wonder Woman.
Not much is known about the plot, but judging by the trailer, it’s an origin story that takes place during World War I.
Joining Godot are Chris Pine (Steve Trevor), Robin Wright (General Antiope), Lucy Davis (Etta Candy), and Connie Nielson (Queen Hippolyta). Patty Jenkins directs from a screenplay written by Allen Heinberg and Geoff Johns.
Wonder Woman will hit theaters on June 2, 2017.
