“Wonder Woman” comic book writer Greg Rucka recently dropped a bombshell by telling Comicosity that the beloved superhero from Themyscira is bisexual.
A lot of people embraced this revelation, including the “Wonder Woman” star herself, Gal Gadot.
The actress told Variety that even though Diana Prince’s bisexuality wasn’t explored in her standalone film, her attraction toward women actually makes a lot of sense.
“It never came to the table, but when you talk theoretically about all the women on Themyscira and how many years she was there, then what he said makes sense,” she said. “In this movie she does not experience any bisexual relationships. But it’s not about that. She’s a woman who loves people for who they are. She can be bisexual. She loves people for their hearts.”
Gadot added that moviegoers from all walks of life will definitely warm up to the character because she’s so relatable.
“She has the heart of a human and is very compassionate, but her experiences — or lack of them, her naiveté, really — make her interested in everything around her and able to view the world in a way that we’d all like to: with a genuine curiosity,” she said.
This statement reflected the earlier one made by Gadot regarding the superhero. “Wonder Woman” will deliver a lot of action scenes featuring good versus evil, but Gadot said the highlight of the movie is not in its explosive fights.
“With this character, what I love about her so much is that her agenda is love. It’s not about fighting, it’s not about who is stronger than whom; it’s not about women versus men. It’s about love, and acceptance of others. She stands for love, justice and compassion,” she said during a chat with We Got This Covered.
“Wonder Woman,” which is directed by Patty Jenkins, will be released on June 2, 2017.
