Gadot also signed a three-picture deal that would pay her the same amount for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Wonder Woman, and the upcoming Justice League, so her fee wasn't able to be renegotiated between each movie.

Jenkins says she saw Wonder Woman as a superheroine who channels her raw power through empathy and compassion. "If you do an apples to apples comparison, she was paid at least as much as he was".

If that sounds like an exaggeration, consider this: We get not one, but three separate, water-adjacent scenes establishing their awkward but flirty banter-one of which takes place nearly immediately after Antiope dies. But the question here isn't whether men can write compelling women.
