Justice League: Gal Gadot Reveals Her Absence From Snyder Cut Reshoots

Justice League, Wonder Woman

Gal Gadot is about to stand out as one of the most prominent names in entertainment for the next few months thanks to her most recent work in the DC Extended Universe. Less than a week remains until Wonder Woman 1984 is released on HBO Max and in select theaters in the U.S., and three months from now will bring the highly anticipated debut of Zack Snyder's Director's Cut of Justice League.

Snyder had the opportunity to bring some of the cast and crew together for a few more days of shooting to complete as much new material as he could for the Snyder Cut's release, and he has spent most of 2020 in the editing room finishing post-production. Gadot at one point was rumored to be involved in the reshoots with costars like Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck, but her most recent interview revealed the truth behind those rumors.


In a new interview with MTV News, via YouTube, Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot revealed that she was not a part of the additional photography for the Snyder Cut of Justice League that occured this Fall:

No...  I didn’t shoot anything, I didn’t see anything, and I’m very much looking forward to Zack’s cut.

She also gave her own views on how the Snyder Cut came to be a real entity, expressing how nothing about the world surprises her at this point in time:

You know, in this world now, I’m not surprised by anything. If someone would have told me a year ago, “You know, there’s gonna be a pandemic,”…Now, all bets are off. You know, now, I’m not surprised by anything. But I’m very happy for him that he got to do his own version of the  movie.

Gadot's full twelve-minute interview with MTV can be seen here, with her comments on the Snyder Cut coming around the 7:00 mark:



It has never been officially confirmed who specifically was involved with the reportedly week-long reshoots for the Snyder Cut, but Gal Gadot makes it clear that she was not a part of that small group. It's also unknown exactly what footage was shot, although Snyder has teased that it only consists of a few minutes of the Snyder Cut's runtime, and that will likely remain a mystery until after the film releases in full.

Gadot seems to be handling everything going on around her surprisingly well, especially considering that her latest solo movie has faced a number of delays even before the worldwide pandemic changed lives of so many.

As for the Snyder Cut, its existence has been rumored and teased for most of the last three years since the tumultuous debut of Joss Whedon's theatrical cut in 2017. The fact that that Snyder's full vision will be realized so soon feels like a sort of miracle in and of itself, and Gadot appears to be looking forward to it just as much as the rest of the world.

The Snyder Cut will make its way to HBO Max in March 2021. Gadot's second DCEU solo film, Wonder Woman 1984, will premiere on HBO Max and in theaters worldwide on December 25.
