Gal Godot Says Diana Will Be Very Different in Wonder Woman Than in Batman v Superman
Wonder Woman has widely been hailed as the breakout character of Batman v Superman (that'll teach them to leave her out of the title), so even though Batman v Superman is facing some heavy criticism, anticipation for the solo Wonder Woman movie will arguably be even higher than it was before. Now, Gal Godot is speaking out about her character, and the differences between the Diana Prince you saw in Batman v Superman and the younger, more idealistic version you'll see in the Wonder Woman solo movie:

Opening quote
"Usually when you get a script and you work on a character, you start at the beginning and then you go to the end. You evolve with the character," Gadot told IGN. "In BvS, I started at the end result of Wonder Woman. In the standalone Wonder Woman movie, it's the first time we're going to tell the coming of age of Wonder Woman and I'm going to go back in time, I'm going to travel back in time. Wonder Woman [in the solo film] is different than the one you're going to see in BvS. She's more naive and pure and she's this young idealist who does not understand the complexities of men and life, whereas in BvS she's super, she's very experienced and it's been such an amazing creative process."
Closing quote

We didn't get to see too much of Diana in Batman v Superman, but she did seem fairly street-savvy and a little jaded (although much more joyfully so than Ben Affleck's Batman). I'm not sure I like the idea of the first female superhero we see onscreen being described as "naive" or "pure," since I don't think anyone would describe any male superhero that way, even the earnest ones like Superman or Captain America. But it should be an interesting arc if Patty Jenkins focuses on the idealism rather than the "innocence" aspect.

Batman v Superman is now out in theaters, while the Wonder Woman solo movie comes out on June 23, 2017.
