Gal Gadot kicked some serious ass in this summer’s Wonder Woman, but she also proved that she’s got comedy chops, too. The entire film is filled with delightful moments — The joy over ice cream! The London fitting room! — but perhaps the most hilarious and memorable scene follows Gadot’s Diana and Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor as they sail from Themyscira to England. Along the way, they bond by chatting about their upbringing (Zeus brought her to life, naturally) and all 12 volumes of Clio’s treatises on bodily pleasure… as well as Clio’s conclusions about the necessity of men.
It’s a frank, funny exchange that highlights the chemistry between Gadot and Pine, and with Wonder Woman hitting Blu-ray and DVD next week, EW has an exclusive look at an alternate version of that scene.
Earlier this year, Pine spoke to EW about the boat conversation, where he revealed that he and Gadot ad libbed throughout.
“She has to be the straight woman, that’s the hardest part,” he said. “She’s delivering lines like ‘My father is Zeus’ — s— that is just so ridiculous. And she has to say it with a straight face, with a certain amount of innocence and earnestness. I get to react like any human being would to hearing something as ridiculous as that. So I had it easy.”
Wonder Woman is available for digital download now and will be released Tuesday on Blu-ray and DVD.
