Recently, there were reports that Wonder Woman’s Gal Gadot was paid less than her DC counterpart Henry Cavill as Superman.

Quashing these reports, a source familiar to both has said that the actors were paid the same amount of money for their debut standalone movies, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

The source said that Gadot made the same amount upfront if not slightly more on Wonder Woman than Cavill made on 2013’s Man of Steel.

This alleged salary discrepancy story was on a post from Elle magazine, which cobbled together salary information that had previously appeared in various publications.

The Elle story said Gadot was paid 300,000 USD for Wonder Woman vs. 14 million USD that Cavill received for Man of Steel.

However, the source called Gadot’s figures in the story as ridiculous.

Warner Bros., the studio who is behind both the movies has declined to comment on the matter.
