Gal Gadot paid the same as Henry Cavill in superhero standalone debut

Going into its third weekend, like for like box office comparisons had Wonder Woman outpacing Man of Steel and Suicide Squad going. While Gadot is assuredly an A-list title thanks to Wonder Woman's success, her biggest role beforehand was as a Fast and Furious supporting character. When a pilot crashes and tells of conflict in the outside world, she leaves home to fight a war to end all wars, discovering her full powers and true destiny.

So if Gadot signed a deal similar to Cavill's, the "Wonder Woman" bonus checks should soon be rolling in.

Even Jenkins has had her moments of shock.

Jenkins doesn't focus on the gender issue. While not exactly riffing on the 1970s Wonder Woman theme, her theme in the film sounds like a throw-back, but is organic enough to the setting and tone of the movie that it sounds like a delightful nod to nostalgia while still really fitting to this impressive Wonder Woman. The source also speculated that the $14 million wasn't just for one movie. She could still end up at least five times of her base salary of $300,000, according to film insiders.




Jenkins says her first priority was to make the best Wonder Woman movie she could. As a single mother for much of their youth, I always attempted to raise them with the understanding that they are as capable as any male when choosing their future goals. The good news for Gadot is that she now can negotiate a new contract, and Hollywood experts agree she will command a far more Prince-ly sum.

Back in March, a bomb was dropped on the entire Marvel fan base when it was announced, according to Variety, that MCU alum Joss Whedon had jumped ship and would be writing, directing and producing a solo Batgirl movie for rival studio DC. The film is lacking in racial diversity, but it does wonders with its use of a female lead in the superhero genre. Their lives are changed when one of the girls finds a wounded soldier from the Union Army and brings him into the school to heal. The film is the second best reviewed superhero film to date after Logan which was released earlier this year. Although many would argue she has an advantage in the industry coming from the Coppola filmmaking dynasty, her talent is undeniable.

But several publications have picked apart that figure to show that it was highly misleading and may not say as much about pay disparity in Hollywood as other figures. "Still only 4 percent of women directed, I think, the major motion pictures of 2016", she said.

Most of all, I loved the way Chris Pine's character was used to compliment Wonder Woman, rather than to be her source of strength. Other recent or upcoming female-directed films include Lucia Aniello's Rough Night, Lake Bell's I Do...
