Wonder Woman makes the whole team stick together in Justice League, says Gal Gadot. Batman may be the one to recruit his new allies to the team, but it would be the Amazonian goddess' role to keep them working together amidst the upcoming catastrophic onslaught by Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons.
In just three weeks, we're finally going to be able to find out the answers to all the mysteries concerning Warner Bros' first superhero team-up film, Justice League. Coming from a not so ideal kick-off with fan-divisive films such as Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, things quickly perked up once against for the DC franchise thanks to the Patty Jenkins-directed smash hit, Wonder Woman, which earned rave reviews along record-breaking box office numbers. Onto her next mission in the Zack Snyder flick, Diana's usually one-woman mission takes a different spin as she now finds herself with other capable heroes who should work together to defeat one common enemy.
As Justice League draws near, marketing for the film continues to make sure that the hype train is well running until the movie finally arrives in theaters. In DC All Access' latest press coverage for the ensemble flick (via Imgur), Gadot talks about her role in the film outside of helping the team defeat Steppenwolf. Apparently, the goddess has also some pivotal role in building a harmonious dynamic within the squad:
"For me it was important that she be the glue of the team. I think that one of the special and beautiful things about Diana is that she cares for people in the most sincere way. So in her scenes, I made sure that she would make every one of them feel stronger, loved and capable. The story in Justice League is far bigger than Diana; it’s about the entire League."
For a team that has been hastily put together, it not unexpected some of the characters will be butting heads along the way -- especially with personal agendas and egos muddling their overall goal. We know that Cyborg and Aquaman will not be good friends at the start of the film, and maybe they still won't be by the end of it, but the two need to set aside their differences and work together to save humanity. While we're unsure how Gadot will be a mediator between the cybernetic hero and the Atlantis royalty (and whoever else will find themselves in an argument), it is not difficult to imagine Diana, given her compassion and knack for reason, but still strong-willed and capable persona, knocking some sense into everybody's head and draw them back to focus at the task at hand.
With the film's final runtime finally revealed, fans can also nab their Justice League tickets now. And while we wait for few more weeks for the film, more marketing materials are expected to drop giving us hints as to what DC's ultimate superheroes' big screen team-up will bring to the comic book movie-populated Hollywood.
