“I believe Steve and Diana have a very particular dynamic that wasn’t absolutely—how ought to I put it?—wasn’t absolutely explored within the earlier film,” says Gal Gadot (Diana), “as a result of we simply met and we simply constructed a relationship. And now we have now a chance to type of proceed from the place we stopped final, and now we’re doing it after, no less than my character, [having] carried the massive lack of him [for] all these years. So having somebody that you just love a lot after so a few years, and be[ing] with him once more is simply, like, nice.”
Pine echoed Gadot’s characterization of the Diana/Steve dynamic in Marvel Lady 1984, saying: “Yeah, the primary one was about falling in love, when you’ve got that fantastic ‘will they, gained’t they,’ and a lot about their personalities don’t match, however they do, goddamnit, and we would like them to, that type of factor. The consummation has already occurred, so now it’s an exploration of that lacking and that longing and realizing what it’s, so there’s the energy of that bond.”
Gadot teases that “it’s much more intimate this time,” saying: “And likewise doing it from an grownup place, relatively than, you already know, being a younger girl who falls in love. She’s a lot, rather more mature. You might say she’s very outdated. It’s a unique relationship.”
Having Steve again is clearly a significant change for Diana, who has began to isolate herself within the years since we noticed her in Marvel Lady, which was set in 1918.
“She doesn’t actually wish to make shut connections with anybody, as a result of she is aware of, both she’s going to harm them as a result of she’ll should disappear in the future, or she is going to lose them as a result of they’ll develop outdated,” says Gadot of Diana after we catch again up along with her. “So I believe, after the lack of Steve and your complete crew in a while, I believe Diana is in a spot the place she’s completely happy the place she is. She’s pretty lonely, however she made the choice to do this. And she or he does go to the world each time it’s wanted. However she’s not full, you already know what I imply? … She has points.”
