Earlier this fall, in celebration of Wonder Woman‘s 75th anniversary, writer Greg Rucka finally confirmed what we’ve all known since forever; Wonder Woman is bisexual. It was an important and huge step forward for both DC Comics and LGBTQ representation in the comic world. With the Wonder Woman film hitting theaters next summer, actress Gal Gadot who plays Diana Prince has embraced both the iconic superhero and her sexuality.
Though Wonder Woman’s queer identity is not included in the narrative of the first film, that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for it in the Wonder Woman sequel. Gadot was recently on the Israeli show Good Night with Guy Pines where she said that she has the perfect actress in mind to play Diana’s love interest. She said, “I saw her the other day, Halle Berry. She’s so beautiful. Wow! She’s gorgeous! So… yeah, I could do it with her.”
We are way too far away from the Wonder Woman sequel to know anything about the narrative, but we certainly hope that Warner Bros. takes Gadot seriously. After all, Academy Award-winning actress Halle Berry is no stranger to the superhero world herself. She played Storm in the X-Men films and it would be a fantastic way for her to smooth over that not so perfect Catwoman film.
What do you think about Halle Berry as Wonder Woman’s love interest in the second Wonder Woman film?
