So the receipts have been (and are still being tallied) and Wonder Woman has cha-chinged its way straight to the bank both domestically and internationally. But there’s been a rumbling in La La Land as of late as leaks have emerged that show star Gal Gadot has been grossly underpaid for her debut in the DC universe.
According to reports, Gadot, who previously was a part of the franchise beast The Fast & The Furious, was paid only $300,000 for her star turn as Wonder Woman. If you think there’s extreme f*ckery in this sum, you are probably right. Especially, if you compare it to the $14 million that Henry Cavill allegedly earned for his turn as Superman.
Now, we all know Superman underperformed and Henry Cavill certainly didn’t have a hit under his belt before he signed on the dotted line, so why was he paid so much more? Come on, folx. Spell it out with me…
Now, there are other reports that claim Cavill got paid far less than $14 million dollars, but there are NO reports that he made a paltry sum close to $300,000, and we all know why.
Not a single person was checking for Hanry Cavill because of his stint on The Tudors, just like no one was checking for Gadot for her part in the Furious franchise, so this more than likely boils down to a case of ovaries versus testicles, because no Hollywood agent is so inept that he cannot get his client a bigger payday, right?
Word in the alleys is that Gadot probably made less than her co-star Chris Pine for Wonder Woman and she is the star, so women (and men) everywhere should be up in arms over this outright f*ckery. Now that Wonder Woman is a bonafide hit, we are hoping that Gal Gadot breaks the DC bank when it comes down to signing her for the sequels and making her one of the highest actors in the comic book movie business, because?
She has f*ckin’ earned it.
Move over Batman and Superman.
The most powerful of them all has glorious tittyballs and can whoop both of your asses!
Get those checks, Gal!
