For actors, shooting a movie can be an exhausting process. It requires long hours on set and sometimes the most uncomfortable positions and settings. Now shooting a superhero movie is probably even more intense. It requires intense workouts, scripted choreography for fight scenes, and memorizing hundreds of lines. But can you imagine doing that pregnant? Well, that is what Gal Gadot did for Wonder Woman.
Gal Godot has talked about getting in shape for the role and how it helped her feel psychologically along with physically stronger. But what is more impressive is her revelation that she went back for re-shoots on Wonder Woman five months pregnant. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, she reveals how she managed when in November last year, Warner Bros. commissioned additional footage for the film.
"On close-up I looked very much like Wonder Woman. On wide shots I looked very funny, like Wonder Woman pregnant with Kermit the Frog."
So how do you shoot a superhero and skintight armor who is visibly pregnant? Gal Godot explains that for the Wonder Woman reshot, her armor was cut around her pregnant belly and covered with green fabric so it can be edited out in post-production.
