Gal Gadot's earnings for 'Wonder Woman', despite being a smash hit, are reportedly only $300,000.
Much has been (rightly) made of the runaway success of current box office smash Wonder Woman over the last couple of weeks, having made more than $500 million in the U.S. and on the verge of becoming one of the ten highest-grossing superhero movies of all time. Not to mention its symbolic significance in representing a breakthrough for women at the highest echelons of the film industry.
Making it all the more surprising then, that its lead star Gal Gadot was paid a comparatively paltry sum of $300,000 – and adding new fuel to the debate over the gender pay gap in Hollywood as a result.

The actress did some of the movie's reshoots whilst pregnant with daughter Maya.
A clear winner with the critics and currently sitting with over $250 million in the worldwide box office, DC Extended Universe movie 'Wonder Woman' is obviously one of the most exciting and thrilling superhero films of the modern day. Finally bringing the titular hero to the big screen for her first big budget Hollywood movie, 'Wonder Woman' has proven that the DCEU can be a success, following the critically panned first trilogy of films 'Man of Steel', 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' and 'Suicide Squad'.

Gal Gadot leads the film as Diana Prince, joined by Chris Pine as romantic love interest Steve Trevor. Patty Jenkins takes her seat in the Director's Chair, working on a story co-written by Allan Heinberg, Geoff Johns, Zack Snyder and Jason Fuchs.

The 'Wonder Woman' star didn't find all of her training easy.
Gal Gadot has had to put some serious work into her latest film 'Wonder Woman', particularly in a physical sense, but there were some aspects of her training that she had no idea would be as hard as they turned out to be. One of them was horseback riding.
Gal Gadot stars in 'Wonder Woman'
The 32-year-old Israeli actress had to learn all kinds of martial arts and sword fighting techniques months ahead of filming Patty Jenkins' DC blockbuster hit, all while getting her body into shape because there's really no way of pretending to be that athletic and unyielding.

Patty Jenkins' superhero movie has highest domestic opening weekend for a female director.
It was only appropriate that a superhero movie as empowering as 'Wonder Woman' would be directed by a woman, and now Patty Jenkins has managed to make history with her film having the largest opening weekend ever for a female director. It's an important moment for feminism in the media.
Chris Pine and Gal Gadot in 'Wonder Woman'
'Wonder Woman' flew effortlessly to the top of the box office over the weekend and grossed $100.5 million in domestic ticket sales. It easily beat the previous record holder, 'Fifty Shades of Grey' directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson, which earned a comparatively meagre $85.2 million in its opening weekend.

Gal Gadot talks about her Wonder Woman ambitions
After debuting in her role as Wonder Woman in last year's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and arguably stealing the film out from under its stars, hopes have been high for Gal Gadot's stand-alone Wonder Woman movie, the first female-centred superhero movie directed by a female filmmaker, Patty Jenkins.
Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman
Born in Israel, Gadot completed her required military service and was crowned Miss Israel in 2004, then went on to compete in the Miss Universe pageant before bursting onto movie screens in 2008's Fast & Furious.

Boldly optimistic, this action-packed adventure breathes fresh life into the DC universe with a welcome balance of comedy, flirtation and a sense of righteous justice. And at the centre, Gal Gadot is a hugely engaging hero with a refreshing moral clarity to her actions. So even if the movie dissolves into the usual murky digital mayhem in its final act, there's a bright light at the centre that holds us in its grip.
While the Great War rages in Europe, life carries on as usual on the secret island home of the Amazons, where Diana (Gadot) has been raised by her mother Queen Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen) and trained by her aunt General Antiope (Robin Wright). When American spy Steve (Chris Pine) crash-lands there, Diana quickly agrees to return with him to war-torn Europe, track down God of War Aries and put an end to the fighting for good. Awed by her fighting prowess and skimpy outfit, Steve agrees to take her. They return to London to confront a smug politician (David Thewlis) and assemble a team so they can return to the front on a mission to take down the nefarious German General Ludendorff (Danny Huston) and his chemical weapons scientist Maru (Elena Anaya). But Diana is still looking for Aries.
Director Patty Jenkins tells this story like an old-fashioned war epic, following a rag-tag group of good guys as they go through a series of battles on their way to the big confrontation. Along the way, there's plenty of comedy banter, dark emotion and even some lusty romance. Putting a woman at the centre of the action gives the movie a strongly resonant slant, especially because she's surrounded by men who always underestimate her.

Reports suggest that Lebanon wants to ban 'Wonder Woman' from the country because its lead star, Gal Gadot, is Israeli, in accordance with a decades-old law boycotting Israeli products.
Lebanon is seeking to ban the upcoming Warner Bros. superhero movie Wonder Woman from the country on the grounds that its lead actress, Gal Gadot, is Israeli.
The state of Lebanon is at war with Israel, and has a law that boycotts all Israeli products and prevents its citizens from having any kind of contact with Israelis and from travelling there.
Arab News reports that a local source says the ministry of economy in Lebanon is seeking to “take the necessary measures” to prevent the DC Universe film from being screened there.

The actress collaborated closely with director Patty Jenkins.
To-date, fans of DC's Extended Universe have been given Superman-centric film 'Man Of Steel', which was followed up with 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' and the villain-focused third entry, 'Suicide Squad'. Though none of the three made a great mark with the critics, they still made big bucks in the box office, with 'Wonder Woman' now set to land as the fourth instalment.
Gal Gadot takes on the titular role in 'Wonder Woman'
Early reactions from those who have been lucky enough to see screenings ahead of official release have been great, with Gadot's performance and director Patty Jenkins' work at the helm especially earning a brilliant response. But what will we see of the character in the flick? Will she be evolved from the colder Wonder Woman we saw in 'Batman v Superman', who was close to giving up on humanity?

This training session didn't exactly go the way Conan O'Brien planned.
If there's one thing you can say about Gal Gadot, it's that she's got a hell of a lot of stamina. Her portrayal of DC superhero Diana Prince in 'Wonder Woman' is relentless from what we've seen so far, and it's all down to months of training as she explained to Conan O'Brien.
Gal Gadot at the 'Wonder Woman' premiere
Conan wanted to see if he could become as fit as Wonder Woman in 35 minutes on his show, as Gal Gadot looked on in amusement with her Czech trainer Rudolf Vrba. Together they practised sword-fighting, kicking and, weirdly, the can-can.
