This is a very exciting news update as she is a very prolific and exemplary actor who has her own big fan base across the globe where her she has managed to create place in the hearts of audiences, critics and Hollywood film fraternity with the sheer power of her terrific acting.

She went on to gain worldwide critical acclaim along with commercial success for portraying Diana Prince / Wonder Woman in the DC Extended Universe, beginning with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) followed by the solo film Wonder Woman and the ensemble Justice League (both 2017).

Coming back to the point of her fees and remuneration for this upcoming Wonder Woman: 1984 sequel, according to a leading entertainment magazine report, For the first part Gal Gadot was only paid $ 300,000 and this figure caused a lot of social media uproar and massive outrage of the netizens and fans since it’s really very less and too meagre compared to what the male actors get paid.
However, this social media trend and outrage did work in her favour quite well as it cemented her position in the list of the highest-paid female actors in Hollywood.

Even after these huge existing differential pay parity treatments that exist between male and female actors in Hollywood even today, We can say that even after beating all these odds Gal is still in the list of highest paid female actors in a Marvel DC Universe Film and is also the biggest star when compared to her co actors in the movie for she will be laying the lead role of Wonder Woman in the highly much awaited sequel Wonder Woman 1984.
