Before landing the leading role in Wonder Woman and Justice League, Gal Gadot was not even aware of what she was auditioning for.
“It was weird because I didn’t know they were auditioning me for ‘Wonder Woman,’” Gadot explained. “I knew I was auditioning for this ‘secret project.’”
Gadot revealed she delivered lines from “Pulp Fiction” for the audition. “One week before I did the camera test with Ben [Affleck], I was like, ‘What’s going on?’” the star recalled. “They told me they wanted to fly me to L.A. I was like, ‘Great. But what is it?’”
Gadot said her agent was surprised she did not know yet. She remembered thinking, “Can someone just say something?!” Finally, “Justice League” director Zack Snyder called Gadot and told her that the audition had been for “Wonder Woman.” It was the call that changed everything for the superhero movie universe.
