Turns out that while Wonder Woman was punching the heck outta some Krauts in the new film, she was actually up the duff. How’s about that then?
Gal Gadot was preggers through much of the shooting of the new blockbuster, and when she returned in November to do a few final reshoots she was actually five months, according to an interview in Entertainment Weekly.
According to the interview, she was pregnant enough that the costume department had to sheathe her belly in a green screen and edit it out. “On close-up I looked very much like Wonder Woman,” Gadot said. “On wide shots I looked very funny, like Wonder Woman pregnant with Kermit the Frog.”
The scene in question that needed a reshoot concerned Diana Prince (Gadot) and Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) walking and talking about the horrors of war. Director Patty Jenkins wanted to add a little bit more around the conversation to enhance the drama and emotion – hence the necessary preggers reshoot.
“That scene was just a slightly tense scene of them walking. I was like ‘I need her to see some brutality,’” Jenkins told The Hollywood Reporter. “So we added her seeing the horses being whipped. It was actually something that had been in the script originally.”
Referring to the pregnancy, Jenkins went on. “Now, at least, we will be able to tell her [new] daughter Maya that she’s in her mum’s stomach right then, in the middle of that battle scene.”
