DC Studios Cancels Wonder Woman 3 To Focus On Other Projects

According to reports, Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 3, which was given the go-ahead following Wonder Woman 1984, is not progressing in its current form. Wonder Woman has been one of the most well-known Justice League characters since Gal Gadot first brought her to life in the DC Universe (formerly known as the DCEU) in 2016. The starlet went on to star in her own Wonder Woman films in 2017’s Justice League after making her film debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Wonder Woman 3 has been in the works since 2020; Gadot will return as the title character, and Jenkins will direct the third installment.

However, Wonder Woman 3 encountered a significant roadblock just one day after Gadot celebrated her casting anniversary. Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 3 is presently thought to be dead and isn’t moving ahead in its most recent incarnation, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Their sources claim that Jenkins re-sent the studio her treatment, which she co-wrote with Geoff Johns. Jenkins was notified by the new executives at DC Studios and Warner Bros. Pictures that the sequel as it was currently written didn’t fit with the DCU’s new intentions. Gadot published this one day prior to this:

What This Means For Wonder Woman In The DCU

This change occurs just one month after Walter Hamada’s departure and a restructuring of Warner Bros.’ DC branch led to James Gunn and Peter Safran being named the new heads of DC Studios. When they arrived, they started working on a 10-year plan for the DC Universe that would change things up while still releasing a number of movies in 2023. The last time Wonder Woman appeared, a stunt actor portrayed her in the shadows in the Peacemaker season 1 finale.

It’s not yet known if this marks the end of Gadot’s tenure as Wonder Woman in the DC Extended Universe (DCU) after Wonder Woman 3 was canceled. Whether they are recasting the role or starting over with the entire DCU from scratch is not made clear in the report. Given the current state of affairs, it’s always possible that they will rewrite a Wonder Woman 3 that complements the ideas that Safran and Gunn have for the DC Universe. Time will tell if that actually happens, as Gunn and Safran have not yet made any statements about the report in the media.

Given how well-known Gadot’s Wonder Woman became in the DC Universe, this is undoubtedly a huge letdown, but hopefully it won’t be the end of her story. It would be strange to completely abandon Gadot’s franchise because it has been one of the more lucrative ones for the DC Universe and has become extremely popular. Time will tell what transpires in Wonder Woman 3 and subsequent films given the uncertainty surrounding the Justice League actors in the DC Extended Universe.
