Wonder Woman Hits $500 Million Worldwide

Wonder Woman Hits $500 Million Worldwide

So while there is a clear difference between the salaries of Gadot and the current crop of actors who play popular superheros, it is expected the success of Wonder Woman will see her negotiating power increase substantially when it comes to discussing her pay cheque for Wonder Woman 2.

Back in 2014, Variety reported that when Gadot signed a three-picture deal with Warner Bros. In addition to Man of Steel, all of the past films from the DCEU are ahead of Wonder Woman, although not that far ahead: Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is at #13 with $330 million, followed immediately by Suicide Squad at #14 with $325 million. Think again. Although Gadot's Wonder Woman salary has been public knowledge for some time, multiple outlets (such as Refinery29, The Daily Dot, and Teen Vogue) are reporting that she's making less money as a DCEU actor than her male counterparts.

Of course, $300,000 is in no way a trivial amount of money for anyone to receive. Chris Evans, who portrayed Steve Rogers/ Captain America earned $300,000 in Captain America: The First Avenger.

When Wonder Woman first debuted in theaters a few weeks ago, it took the world by surprise.

Proposed DUP deal would not undermine Good Friday Agreement, insists May
"I am looking forward to travelling to Downing Street today to meet the British Prime Minister, Theresa May ", he said. She repeated that Sinn Féin wanted to reach agreement but one that was based on equality, respect and integrity.

Was there a gender pay gap?

The reason some people are annoyed by her salary is the fact that Henry Cavill earned way more for Man of Steel.

Gal Gadot as Diana Prince in a still from Wonder Woman. Not to say anything bad about Cavill, but he wasn't a household name when he was cast. Cut to 2017, when Wonder Woman is a massive success and has proven to be the most successful film in the DCEU. Gadot is now in the second film of a three-picture deal in which she's being paid that figure for each project ("Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", "Wonder Woman" "Justice League").

Some users, though, have hope that Gadot's contract may have already prepared for the film's massive success.
