Umm, that No Man’s Land scene almost didn’t make the cut.
Gal Gadot was pregnant during shooting.
When the movie went back for reshoots, Gadot was five months pregnant. The production team worked around it by putting green fabric — essentially a green screen — in front of her belly.
Gadot had no clue what she was auditioning for at first. All she knew was that it was a “secret” role.
Basically, director Zack Snyder invited her in for a camera test, and she read the lines she was given.
Chris Pine improvised some of that awkwardly adorable boat scene.
In her Reddit AMA, Patty Jenkins revealed that Pine improvised Steve's clarifying speech about not being an “average man.”
