Gal Gadot spotted working out for Wonder Woman role in 'Batman vs Superman'

Gal Gadot was spotted yesterday, Jan. 11 in her hometown of Israel after what several websites confirm was the beginning of her intense workouts for her new role as Wonder Woman in the new "Batman vs. Superman" movie. It has been reported that she not only has to bulk up for the role of the Amazonian Princess, Diana Prince but she must also learn Kung Fu, kickboxing, sword fighting, and jujutsu.

Also, personal trainer Mark Twight, who worked with co star Henry Cavill in shape for "Man of Steel" tweeted that he would be in Israel working for a little while.

Filming begins in Detroit next month, but since she has a very small role she has plenty of time to bulk up for the role.

Gadot was interviewed in Israel on their top entertainment show, Good Evening with Gai Pines. Here are a few items that were translated from the interview:

Where were you when you heard the news that you’d been cast as Wonder Woman?

I was just on my way to shooting at LA. I landed at NY in a connection flight when my agent, Hadas Lichtenstein, called me. She says to me “Wonder Woman!” and I’m like “What??” – “The role is yours!…and it’s a secret and the news are not yet announced and you can’t tell anyone…”. I’m saying to her “Are you serious??”- and we both scream! Now it’s a plane from Israel to NY and I can’t make loud noise, and so I lean on a window, bending down to my legs, and just try to understand. Long story short – I was totally alone in NY, I got to a hotel at 12am, I needed to wake up in the morning for shootings. I remember laying in the darkness by myself, staring at the ceiling, and I was telling myself “It’s not real!”…it shouldn’t be like that, I’m supposed to be like… “where’s the champagne?”.

It’s been said that you’re too skinny for the part. Wonder Woman is large-breasted, is that going to change?

Hmm. I represent the Wonder Woman of the new world. Breasts… anyone can buy for 9,000 shekels and everything is fine. By the way, Wonder Woman is Amazonian, and historically accurate Amazonian women actually had only one breast. So, if I’d really go “by the book”…it’d be problematic.

So you’re not going to gain a little weight and start eating carbs before filming begins?

It’s the physical preparations that I’m starting now. A very serious training regimen – Kung Fu, kickboxing, swords, jujutsu, Brazilian…1,000 and 1 things…I’ll gain body mass.

It is still unconfirmed just how big of a role that Wonder Woman will have in the movie but most interviews are leaning towards a smaller cameo type role that will be used as a potential for a full Wonder Woman movie depending upon her reception.

What do you think about the upcoming movie?
