Made for her: Jenkins, who places extreme importance on casting, and had been pushing for the movie to be made for almost a decade, watched helpless as the role of the Amazon princess was dished out by Zack Snyder when making Batman V Superman

Jenkins, a director who places great emphasis on casting, had been pushing for the production of a Wonder Woman movie for almost a decade. However, she was unable to control the casting of the Amazon princess role, which went to Gal Gadot under Zack Snyder’s direction in Batman V Superman. Despite feeling helpless, Jenkins admits that they did a better job than she could have, praising their international search for the perfect actress. She considered Gal’s casting as a “magical gift” and would not have signed on in 2015 if she had any issues with her. Jenkins commends both Snyder and the casting team for finding an actress who embodies the values of Wonder Woman effortlessly. Gal is, without a doubt, the greatest fit for the role, according to Jenkins.

Better than me: 'Frankly, I think they did a better job than I could have because I don¿t know that I would have scoured the earth as hard to find her,' she conceded

The director of Wonder Woman, Patty Jenkins, praised the efforts of her team in finding the perfect actor to play the superheroine. She admitted that she may not have been able to do as good a job herself, as she was impressed with how hard they searched to find Gal Gadot. Jenkins is the first woman to lead a superhero film and is only the second to handle a budget over $100 million, following Kathryn Bigelow’s K-19: The Widowmaker. Jenkins revealed that when she saw Gadot in full costume on set, she felt like a little girl again, wanting to touch her arm and hair. Throughout filming, Jenkins stated that the inner child in her frequently resurfaced.
