Gal Gadot will bring Wonder Woman to the big screen in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but when she got the call to audition, she thought it was for an entirely different role.

“I thought it was going to be Selina (Kyle), you know?” Gadot told Empire. “I only knew what role it was when I flew in to test with Ben [Affleck]. I was very excited. Anytime I had general meetings in LA, I always said that my dream role was to do an empowered, independent woman who doesn’t rely on men.”

Gadot also revealed in the interview that her version of Diana is over 5,000 years old, and has a long history with what Wonder Woman calls "Man's World." 

“She’s seen it all. She has seen what humans can do, so it was very hard for her to come back and fight.”
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters March 25.
