'Wonder Woman' doesn't explore superhero's sexuality

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Actress Gal Gadot says her upcoming film "Wonder Woman" doesn't give details about the sexuality of the character.

"Wonder Woman" comic book writer Greg Rucka made headlines when he said his depiction of the iconic DC heroine is unequivocally queer - that is, she has had romantic and sexual relationships with other women on the paradise island of Themyscira.

However, the 31-year-old actress said the Amazon warrior loves people for their hearts, reported Variety.

"It's not something we've explored. It never came to the table, but when you talk theoretically about all the women on Themyscira and how many years she was there, then what (Rucka) said makes sense.

"In this movie she does not experience any bisexual relationships. But it's not about that. She's a woman who loves people for who they are. She can be bisexual. She loves people for their hearts," the Israeli actress said.

She also addressed the discussion on the necessity of having a female director for the film.

"I don't think it's a gender kind of thing. I feel like Patty Jenkins was the right person for the movie because she was the right person for the movie. She knew exactly how she wanted to tell her story. She knew exactly what she wanted to get. She's brilliant and smart and so passionate.
