Film ‘Wonder Woman grabbed’ all the attention of the audience and smashed all the records by scoring the highest movie opening ever for a female director (Patty Jenkins). The film embraced the protagonist’s strength, without resorting to any female superhero clichés. And the jaw-dropping fact is in this movie, actress Gal Gadot playing Wonder Woman, was pregnant for five months.
Diana Prince has proven wrong is that of a woman being a weaker sex. When a few scenes of the movie were being re-shot in November, six months after the original filming was completed, Gadot was five months pregnant with her second child, daughter Maya.
Wonder woman Shared her experience with a news agency and she told “In this film 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.”
The director, Jenkins, told that Gadot was asked to do so many things while re-shooting “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 on her mom’s stomach right then, in the middle of that battle scene. And she never felt uncomfortable following the instruction.
She’s not the first woman to normalise pregnancy and prove that it doesn’t stop women from being badasses. We have seen, tennis star Serena Williams was pregnant when she won the “Australian Open Tittle”
