Fans in an uproar over Wonder Woman in Shazam! Fury of the Gods: For many, that’s just a Gal Gadot deepfake, but the truth lies somewhere in between, according to director David Sandberg.
Also heavily influenced by cancellation Of Wonder Woman 3the fans A.D have been very careful to analyze the cameo Of Gal Gadot in Shazam! Fury of the Gods (no spoilers, we succumbed to the temptation to advertise it before its release): fans have come to the conclusion that this would be a deepfakesGal never shot that scene, as the shots on the set would prove, where Diana is played by the stunt double Taylor Cahill. The truth is somewhere in between, as the director explained on Twitter David Sandberg.

Shazam! Fury of the Gods, in Wonder Woman’s cameo there really is Gal Gadot… in half
In Shazam! Fury of the Gods there’s a Wonder Woman cameo alias Gal Gadot. It could be a long time before we figure out what happens to the character in the new one DC Universe of the DC Studios traction James Gunn – Peter Safran, but one thing is certain: that scene was actually played by Gal… but delayed. Fans were convinced that the production, using takes performed by the stunt double Taylor Cahill (documented by photos shared on social networks), had used some deepfakes to recreate Gal Gadot’s performance, without even involving her. Actually she got involvedas David Sandberg explained on Twitter…
We shot the scene with Taylor for figure out what kind of footage we needed with Gal, because she couldn’t come to Atlanta. Even in the scene where she has the wizard’s head that’s Taylor’s body. But there is absolutely no deepfake. When you see Gal, that’s 100% her.
In short, simply Gal Gadot filmed her performance later, and this was combined with the shot using the stunt double as a reference for the other actors. At least for now, no one has dared to recreate Gal from scratch! Mistery solved.
We shot the scene with Taylor to figure out what coverage we then needed to get with Gal since she couldn’t make it to Atlanta. It’s also Taylor’s body of hers with the wizards head on it. There is absolutely no deepfaking going on. When you see Gal it’s 100% her.
