Why People Are Upset About Gal Gadot's 'Wonder Woman' Salary

Meanwhile, Gal Gadot's contract is up for renewal, anyway and if the success of "Wonder Woman" is any indication, Warner Bros. would be smart to increase Gal Gadot's paycheck this time if only to keep her working with the rest of the DCEU.

According to a report from Bustle, while Gal Gadot's salary has in fact been public knowledge for some time that does not mean it is not getting people talking.

While $300,000 is still a lot of money, for a DC movie, especially as grand as Wonder Woman, it is chump change. A similar thing happened to Emma Watson earlier this year, when she reportedly earned an additional $US20 million thanks to Beauty and the Beast's success at the box office.

As reported by The Daily Dot, Gal Gadot only earned $300,000 Dollars for her excellent performance in Wonder Woman.

Of course, $300,000 is nothing to sneeze at, and this number comes without accounting for the bonus actors receive once their film passes a box office milestone - something Wonder Woman is sure to achieve.

In its third weekend of release, Wonder Woman has crossed the $500 Million mark. Judging by that as well as Batman v. Superman's $300 million budget and star power, it doesn't seem out of the realm of possibility that Ben Affleck and Jesse Eisenberg saw larger paydays than Gadot.

Not everyone can be Robert Downey Jr., who negotiated his way into an over $US40 million payday for a Captain America movie (Captain America: Civil War).

On the surface, other superhero actors such as Chris Evans could claim to be similarly hard done (well, by Hollywood standards).

It wouldn't be unusual, either, for Gadot to be paid more given Wonder Woman's huge popularity.

While Cavill's slightly less impressive payout didn't come easy (he had to undergo a gruelling exercise regime in order to transform into Superman), it's not like Gadot didn't have to endure her own workout routine from hell.
