Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot fancies Halle Berry for on-screen girlfriend
Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot has said she fancies a piece of Halle Berry for the title character’s love interest.
Gadot, who also announced today that she and her husband Yaron Versano are expecting their first child, responded after comic book writer Greg Rucka said he thought all of Wonder Woman’s relationships would be with women.
According to batman-news.com, Gadot put Berry’s name forward as a love interest for a proposed sequel.
“I saw her the other day, Halle Berry,” said Gadot on Good Night with Guy Pines. “She’s so beautiful. Wow! She’s gorgeous! So… yeah, I could do [the sequel] with her.”
“She’s a woman who loves people for who they are. She can be bisexual. She loves people for their hearts,” she previously told Variety magazine of her character’s sexual orientation.
Gadot first appeared as Wonder Woman in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
She is set to get her own Wonder Woman film which will be released next June.
Those rooting for her to have a female partner will have to wait a little longer, as she will have a male love interest played by Chris Pine in the 2017 release.
“It’s not something we’ve explored,” she said of the upcoming film.
“It never came to the table, but when you talk theoretically about all the women on (Wonder Woman’s mythical homeland) Themyscira and how many years she was there, then what he (Rucka) said makes sense. In this movie she does not experience any bisexual relationships.”
Wonder Woman writer Greg Rucka addressed controversy around his comments that Wonder Woman is probably bisexual saying fans who are upset at the news need to “get over it.”
Rucka said fans who can’t accept her bisexuality are missing out on part of what makes her who she is.
Wonder Woman is the latest superhero to adopt a LGBT identity.
In February, it was announced that Batwoman would stay true to her sexuality in an upcoming DC film.
The demand for more LGBT superheroes is rife as fans of the Marvel universe recently campaigned to give Captain America a boyfriend.
