Without tagging itself to any of the cliches of a superhero movie, Wonder Woman crossed borders receiving the prize of being the highest movie opening ever for a female director (Patty Jenkins).
Apart from the stunt performance delivered by Wonder Woman, Diana Prince, played by Gal Gadot, the protagonist playing the superhero of the movie, apart from proving that nothing can push them down for being a woman as the actress was five months pregnant during the shoot of the movie.
Oh yes! While the actress was jumping around, saving the world, saving lives, she was carrying around her pregnant belly with her second daughter Maya secure inside.
During the re-shoot of the movie for last November, the producers used CGI to conceal the baby bump that was difficult to hide in the bustier Gadot had to wear. They cut out a triangle in front of her costume and replaced it with a green cloth to make it for visual effects. Gadot told Entertainment Weekly.
On close-up I looked very much like Wonder Woman. On wide shots I looked very funny, like Wonder Woman pregnant with Kermit the FrogGal Gadot
Director Jenkins agrees that the re-shoot of the movie was not an easy task for Gal Gadot because apart from the stunt and walking on one foot, she was also asked to scream.
Now do it on one foot. Now shout while you’re doing it. Now it’s raining in the freezing cold and you’ve lost your voice, go. Every day it was a hilarious gauntlet and she would do it. Now, at least, we will be able to tell her daughter Maya that she’s in her mom’s stomach right then, in the middle of that battle scene.Patty Jenkins, Director
Gal Gadot is not the first one to take professional career too seriously. Earlier this year, Serena Williams sent the world into a frenzy when she won the Australian Open final while being pregnant.
