Compared with other actors who have played superhero roles, Gal Gadot received a small payday for "Wonder Woman."
UPDATE: Sources told BuzzFeed Tuesday Gal Gadot was paid "at least" as much for "Wonder Woman" as Henry Cavill was paid for "Man of Steel" and Cavill would not have been paid "anywhere close" to $14 million.
ORIGINAL: Gal Gadot may be the face of the biggest superhero movie on the planet right now, but she didn't get paid like it.
According to The Daily Dot, the star of "Wonder Woman" was paid $300,000. Gadot is currently in the second film of a three-picture deal in which she's being paid that figure for each project ("Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," "Wonder Woman," and "Justice League").
Because of the success of "Wonder Woman," Gadot is likely to be eligible for any bonuses in her contract.
It's a surprisingly low number in the superhero-movie world, given the hundreds of millions of dollars paid to make and promote the films. But it's not the first time an actor has gotten that kind of paycheck — Chris Evans also got a base pay of $300,000 for "Captain America: The First Avenger."
However, most actors in the first "Avengers" movie earned between $2 million and $6 million after bonuses, while Robert Downey Jr. took in $50 million.
With "Wonder Woman" having earned over $570 million worldwide to date, Gadot can expect a raise when the sequel is announced.
