Although actress Gal Gadot claimed that Wonder Woman 3 had been approved by James Gunn and Peter Safran, the movie will not be moving forward in the DC Universe reboot. Despite being given the green light for development in 2020, director Patty Jenkins was eventually removed from the project after major restructuring of the DC Extended Universe by Gunn and Safran. According to sources from Variety, no plans are in place for any Wonder Woman projects other than the previously announced Paradise Lost prequel series for Max. This contradicts Gadot’s recent interview with Flaunt Magazine, where she stated that Gunn and Safran ensured her that they would develop Wonder Woman 3 with her, saying “you’re in the best hands” and “we love you as Wonder Woman.” However, it remains to be seen if this will come to fruition.
It’s sad news for fans of Wonder Woman as it has been confirmed that the third installment of the superhero film will not be proceeding in the revamped DC Universe. This is despite earlier claims made by lead actress Gal Gadot that the project had been greenlit by studio executives James Gunn and Peter Safran. Gadot expressed her love for the character and revealed that plans were in motion to develop a third film together. However, it was later reported that director Patty Jenkins, who directed the first two films, had rejected studio notes on her treatment for the sequel leading to her departure from the project. The new CEOs of Warner Bros., Michael De Luca and Pamela Abdy, together with Gunn and Safran, did not approve of Jenkins’ vision for the film and decided not to move forward with it in its current form. Despite their attempt to offer a different direction, Jenkins declined the offer and claimed that the executives did not understand her vision for the franchise.
Despite what Gal Gadot recently shared in an interview with Flaunt Magazine about the third Wonder Woman film moving forward, there seems to be a candid update on the matter. The actress looks fabulous on the cover of the magazine, sporting Ferragamo and Tiffany Co. attire.
According to various sources, it seems that Wonder Woman 3 is currently not being worked on by DC Studios. Additionally, both Gunn and Safran do not have any immediate plans for a Wonder Woman project in the new DC Universe. However, they have previously announced a prequel series called Paradise Lost for Max.
Alternative perspective: According to Gadot, she had a meeting with James Gunn and Peter Safran where they conveyed their appreciation for her role as Wonder Woman. In her interview with Flaunt, she mentioned that they assured her that they were going to work together in developing the third installment of the movie. They even went to the extent of saying that she was in good hands, which made her feel valued and respected.
According to her, the duo reassured her by saying, “You have no need to fret,” following it up with “Only time will reveal.”
Voluptuous: The celebrity flaunted her ample assets while striking a pose with confidence.
In the latest magazine photos, the star looked absolutely stunning. According to an insider, Jenkins stood up to those who didn’t understand her or the character, claiming that they didn’t comprehend character arcs or her vision. This isn’t the first time the DC Comics superheroine has graced our screens – Gadot first took on the role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016. Prior to that, Lynda Carter played the iconic character in the Wonder Woman television series from 1975 to 1979. The first Wonder Woman movie premiered in 2017, raking in a whopping $103 million opening weekend and earning $412 million domestically and $822 million worldwide. Gadot reprised her role as Wonder Woman in Justice League later that year, acting alongside Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and Jason Momoa. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 sequel, Wonder Woman 1984, didn’t perform as well at the box office as its predecessor, only bringing in $46.8 million domestically and $122.8 million in foreign markets for a total of $169.6 million worldwide, as it was also released simultaneously on HBO Max.
Jenkins was the director for the initial two films featuring Gal as the iconic Wonder Woman character. The duo was spotted filming for their upcoming project, Wonder Woman 1984 (2020).
The 2017 release of the first Wonder Woman movie was a massive hit, raking in $103 million during its opening weekend and ultimately earning $412 million domestically and $822 million worldwide. Gal Gadot played the iconic superheroine in this film. However, the sequel didn’t fare as well with critics – while the first movie earned an impressive 88% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the second installment only managed to score 58%. Gadot also reprised her role as Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, which premiered on HBO Max in the same year. Fans were thrilled to see her make a cameo appearance in Shazam! Fury Of The Gods.
