  • According to a report from Variety, Gal Gadot signed a three-picture deal with Warner Brothers in 2014 to play Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman, Wonder Woman and Justice League.
  • As part of the deal, the actress agreed to a salary of $300,000 for each.
  • According to ForbesHenry Cavill made $14 million for his debut as Superman in Man of Steel, but Vanity Fair reported that Cavill’s $14 million payday includes bonuses for box office performance and isn’t likely for just one film.
  • Wonder Woman has raked in some $570 million worldwide.
  • The Daily Dot pointed out that Gadot’s seemingly paltry sum isn’t the only instance of a superhero making less than expected. 
  • The outlet reported that Chris Evans earned the same amount for Captain America, while Walt Disney Studios paid some Avengers stars $500,000. 
  • An unnamed source “with knowledge of studio negotiations on franchise films” told Vanity Fair on Tuesday that tides could soon be turning in Gadot’s favor.
  • “Entry-level actors in franchise films are paid an initial rate,” the source said. “As a franchise takes off, they stand to make more money.”
  • The source added that if Gadot’s contract was at all similar to Cavill’s, the actress can expect to be paid “at least as much as he was." Read more (6/20/17 2 PM )
