Gal Gadot got paid $10 million to star in ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ — 33 times more than what she made on the 1st movie!
Controversy erupted in June 2017 after word got out that Gal Gadot was paid only $300,000 to star in “Wonder Woman,”
Patty Jenkins’ beloved comic book tentpole that grossed over $800 million at the worldwide box office and turned Gadot into one among the most popular actresses within the world.
Gal Gadot is finally getting paid what an international film star is worth.
For ‘Wonder Woman 1984,’ she reportedly earned $10 million — a hefty sum that’s still but half what some leading male action stars get, yet one more sign that in Hollywood, as elsewhere, the gender pay gap still features a great distance to go to shut .
Though Gadot was the face of 1 of the foremost successful DC Comics movies Warner Bros. has released so far , with 2017’s “Wonder Woman” taking in over $821 million at the worldwide box office, she was only paid $300,000 to portray the superhero — a figure that was a shock to several when it had been revealed in 2017.
Historically, stars are paid on the low side when doing their first superhero movie, but Gadot’s was definitely on the bottom floor. Many stars within the Avengers movies over at Marvel normally received between $2 million to $6 million after bonuses.
$10 million, first reported by Variety, may be a solid paycheck for an actor. Still, once you line it up next to stars like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Leonardo DiCaprio, it puts the price tag into perspective.
In the Rock’s next movie, Netflix’s “Red Notice,” in which Gadot also stars, the action star will absorb over $20 million.
“Wonder Woman 1984” is set to open in theaters on December 25.
