Gal Gadot Got Paid the Same as Henry Cavill in Their Superhero Standalone Debuts

The Hollywood ReporterJune 20, 2017

Contrary to a story that Wonder Woman's Gal Gadot made millions less than her DC counterpart Henry Cavill as Superman, the two were paid the same for their debut standalone outings.

That's according to a source familiar with both negotiations, who told The Hollywood Reporter that Gadot made the same amount upfront if not slightly more on Wonder Woman than Cavill made on 2013's Man of Steel.

The alleged salary discrepancy story was based on a post from Elle magazine, which cobbled together salary information that had previously appeared in various publications and did not differentiate between upfront salary vs. bonuses and performance escalators.

The story was later updated but caused a stir on the Internet as Hollywood's gender gap on wages has become a popular issue. The Elle story said Gadot was paid $300,000 for Wonder Woman vs. $14 million Cavill received for Man of Steel. The source called the latter figure "ridiculous."

Warner Bros., the studio behind both movies, declined to comment.

A salary of low- to mid-six figures is standard fare for Hollywood tentpoles, especially for actors with short track records; Gadot had bit parts in movies such as Date Night and Knight and Day before landing a more substantial but still supporting role in the Fast & Furious movies. Chris Hemsworth made $150,000 for making his starring debut in 2011's Thor, for example. Adam Driver was paid in the $500,000 range for his part in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, according to sources. Felicity Jones, who had an Oscar nomination under her belt before landing the lead in Rogue One, was paid more than $1 million for the Star Wars standalone.

These salary figures do not take into account box offices bonuses, which hit when certain box office benchmarks are reached. And actors get substantial increases when it comes to sequels, even in spite of having options agreements and especially if a movie is as successful as Wonder Woman (the film has earned $574 million worldwide to date). Gadot's deal will very likely be re-negotiated.

There was one person who cashed in on the Superman phenomena. THR previously reported that producer Jon Peters took home $80 million to $85 million combined for 2006's Superman Returns and Zack Snyder's Man of Steel thanks to backend granted for his role in jumpstarting the franchise in the '90s. Man of Steel earned $668 million worldwide.

Wonder Woman’ Star Gal Gadot Earned a Surprising Low Salary for Her Role in the Massive Hit

Kate Erbland

IndiewireJune 20, 2017

Warner Bros. and DC have a massive, seemingly unstoppable hit on their hands in the form of Wonder Woman — which has so far pulled in over half a billion dollars in worldwide ticket sales — but that doesn’t mean that everyone involved with the project is currently lining their pockets with cold, hard cash. And that includes even star Gal Gadot.

As Variety reported in January 2014, the actress is signed for a three-picture deal with DC, including Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Wonder Woman, and the upcoming Justice League film. For each film, the Israeli star is set to receive just $300,000. You read that correctly.

By way of comparison, her fellow DC player Henry Cavill reportedly earned $14 million for his part in Man of Steel, as reported by Forbes back in 2016. However, that deal likely includes bonuses and other financial sweeteners that were not included in his initial paycheck. It’s currently unclear if Gadot can also expect to pull in those kinds of funds, but it’s hard to imagine she won’t benefit from at least some form of bonus. Wonder Woman, massive hit, maybe you’ve heard of it?

But as CBR notes, Gadot’s paycheck isn’t unheard of in the comic book movie universe, sharing that Chris Evans also earned just $300,000 for his role in Captain America: The First Avenger, which was also his solo superhero debut. Unlike Gadot, however, Evans had yet to appear in any MCU film when he starred in the origin story feature.

It’s striking that Gadot was initially given such a paltry (okay, by Hollywood standards) payday for her big, breakout hit, and it’s even weirder that she’s reportedly earned the same pay rate for Wonder Woman, which she is the star of, and Batman v Superman, which only sees her showing up for a handful of scenes and one battle sequence.

And it’s difficult to ignore a seeming disconnect between the money-making star power of Wonder Woman — a film that’s made a ton of money while also earning stellar reviews from critics and regular moviegoers alike — and its own studio, which reportedly didn’t even realize that huge hit they had on their hands until the film premiered.

As we noted earlier this month, Warner Bros. was reportedly trepidatious about the feature even in the weeks leading up to its release. That report was tied to yet another head-scratcher — that director Patty Jenkins has yet to be signed for a sequel, despite making one of the franchise’s best films yet — and included word from THR that “Warners execs also may have been a bit unprepared for the level of success and acclaim Wonder Woman has achieved…Some insiders say it was only in recent weeks that Wonder Woman buzz began to grow on the Warners lot in Burbank, so the studio wanted to wait for the opening weekend results before initiating any negotiations.”

Time to put your money where your biggest hit is.

“Wonder Woman” is in theaters now.

Mystery of 'ghost motorcycle' has been solved

A puzzled motorist recently recorded footage of a riderless motorcycle cruising along a French motorway.
The video, which went viral after being published by French newspaper Le Parisien, shows a motorcycle heading along a motorway for several miles despite there being nobody on it.

The mysterious sighting managed to generate a great deal of interest on social media with users speculating over the possibility of it being some sort of prototype self-driving bike.

As it turns out however, the motorcycle did have a rider when it started out, but ended up careening along the road on its own after the man was knocked off in a collision with another vehicle.

According to reports, the rider, who had suffered an arm injury in the crash, had spent ages searching the local area for his bike before giving up and heading to a nearby hospital.

The 'ghost motorcycle' was eventually recovered by the police a few days later.

A couple in the Scottish Borders have struggled to find a nanny that will stay in their 'haunted' home.
With a $64,000 a year paycheck and the chance to live inside a luxurious and historic Scottish country mansion, the job might seem ideal for anyone looking to earn a living as a live-in nanny.

Bizarrely however, the couple who own the building have been struggling to find a nanny who will stay the course due to the amount of paranormal activity that has been occurring there.

"We have lived in our home for nearly 10 years," the couple wrote. "We were told it was 'haunted' when we bought it, but kept our minds open and decided to buy the house regardless."

"Five nannies have left the role in the last year, each citing supernatural incidents as the reason, including strange noises, broken glass and furniture moving."

Despite these setbacks however the pair are still hoping to find someone who will stay.

"We haven't personally experienced any supernatural happenings, as they have been reported only while we've been out of the house, but we're happy to pay above the asking rate, and feel it's important to be as up-front as possible to find the right person," they wrote.

"We are keen to find the perfect long-term nanny, so if you'd like to be considered for this rewarding and exciting position, please do get in touch with us."
