One of the photos (see below) showing her in the red, blue, and gold Wonder Woman costume is a full-length photo while the other is a close-up selfie.

“Can finally share some of my picture doubling looks from #wonderwoman1984… starting with my favorite one first,” Burles wrote. “Another amazing movie to be a part of. Crazy to think I did my first movie with @gal_gadot 6 years ago… and what a journey it’s been… @wonderwomanfilm.”

Burles shared photos from the Justice League set back in July

Burles made headlines back in July 2020 when she took to Instagram to share behind-the-scenes photos from Justice League.

One photo (see below) shows her costumed as Wonder Woman and holding the long sword that Wonder Woman used in the battle against Steppenwolf.

Burles reportedly substituted for Gal Gadot in many scenes during the filming of Justice League.

Gadot was pregnant during the filming of Justice League.  She revealed on Live With Kelly and Ryan that she suffered bouts of nausea and vomiting due to her pregnancy.

This likely meant that the directors had to rely more on Burles as a stand-in for Gadot.

Gadot also reportedly clashed with director Joss Whedon on the set of Justice League. She reportedly refused to shoot a scene where The Flash fell on Wonder Woman’s body

I doubt we’ll ever get specifics from Ray Fisher re Joss Whedon, but here’s one I was the first to report:

Gal Gadot didn’t want to film this scene, so Whedon did it w/ a stunt double. That’s why you can’t see her face.#DC #DCEU pic.twitter.com/efliLlY2EW

Whedon reportedly had to bring in a body double to shoot the scene.

Monsters and Critics reported in October that Gal Gadot has been cast as Cleopatra in an upcoming film directed by Patty Jenkins.
