DC Trivia #21: Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman has surely amassed a major chunk of fans with just a couple of performances. She is all set for her their appearance as Princess Diana in Wonder Woman 1984.
We have seen Gal Gadot donning her shiny suit and facing the bad guys. Her weapon of choice has always been the sword but did you know there’s something very special engraved on it? Read the trivia to know more.
A trivia published on Fact Republic reads, “Wonder Woman’s sword in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is inscribed a quote from Joseph Campbell’s collection Goddess: Mystery of the Feminine Divine: ‘Life is killing all the time and so the goddess kills herself in the sacrifice of her own animal.'”
Along with the source which is cited to be Cinema Blend, there’s also a summary about the same which reads, “Wonder Woman already boasts many special Amazonian abilities, but in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, she dove into battle wielding a sword, just like her New 52 counterpart. In the “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice: Tech Manual”, it’s revealed that director Zack Snyder wanted inscriptions on the sword and shield.”
It further read, “Given that Diana comes from an island populated with female warriors, this survival of the fittest-type quote is especially fitting for her sword. Also imprinted on the sword was an eagle, which Zack Snyder added because the bird has been her motif for decades.”
