Wonder Woman was a huge success having been unanimously lauded by fans across the world and also, the film wasn’t shy at the Box Office either. However, it did not reflect in actress Gal Gadot’s paycheck. In its first weekend, Wonder Woman raked in $223 million globally making it the big summer blockbuster that everyone hoped it would be. Additionally, to Patty Jenkins’ rapture, it even hit an all-time high best opening weekend for a female director.
Now that about three weeks have passed, Wonder Woman has collected just about $573 million. So, one would expect that a star such as Gal Gadot, who carried this superhit movie (and also, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice where she was merely a side-character) would be rolling in some serious dough. A million dollars at least?
However, as per The Daily Dot, Gal Gadot earned just about $300,000, which in India’s terms, is less than 2 crores. And if you’re hoping that she could be earning any more money for Justice League, then you would be wrong because apparently, Gadot was signed on for 300k bucks for BvS, Wonder Woman and Justice League each.
While $300,000 is still a lot of money, for a DC movie, especially as grand as Wonder Woman, it is chump change. Gal Gadot’s DCEU co-stars are earning a lot more than her.
Reportedly, Henry Cavill drew a paycheck of $14 million for his role as Clark Kent/ Superman in the 2013 movie Man of Steel. Marvel is a step further with Robert Downey Jr earning some $50 million for his role as Tony Stark/ Iron Man in The Avengers. However, other Marvel stars might be able to condole with Gadot. Chris Evans, who portrayed Steve Rogers/ Captain America earned $300,000 in Captain America: The First Avenger.
The good news is that there is going to be a sequel for Wonder Woman and hopefully, Gadot will get paid the amount of money she actually deserves.
