Gal Gadot Explains Why Wonder Woman No Longer Carries a Sword & Shield

Fans noticed something new with the trailer for Wonder Woman 1984… the film has eliminated the main character’s sword and shield from the movie. Her only weapon is the iconic lasso she carries.

Now, Gal Gadot, who has portrayed Wonder Woman in four DC Universe movies, is explaining the choice made by both her and director Patty Jenkins.

“Wonder Woman does not carry a weapon. We had an intention to let go of the sword, because there’s something very aggressive with a sword. If you have a sword, it means you need to use it. So we wanted to give that up. And we didn’t feel that the shield was necessary either. She’s a goddess, she can fight, she’s super strong, and she has the skills. So no, she has the gauntlets. She has the lasso. She has her tiara and that’s about it,” Gal said.
