Warner Bros. and DC Studios are making a third “Wonder Woman” movie. Not really. Gal Gadot recently said that DC executives James Gunn and Peter Safran told her that they would work on “Wonder Woman 3” together. However, people who know about the situation tell Variety that this is not true.
DC Studios is not working on a third “Wonder Woman” movie, according to the sources. Also, Gunn and Safran have no plans for any other “Wonder Woman” projects in the new DC Universe right now, besides the prequel series to “Paradise Lost” that they had already mentioned for Max.
In a 2007 interview with ComicBook.com, Gadot first said that “Wonder Woman 3” might not be dead after all. It was her favorite part to play Wonder Woman. “It’s very important to me.” I heard from James and Peter that we’re going to work together to make “Wonder Woman 3.”
An upcoming role in “Wonder Woman 3” became even more possible for the actor in a recent profile in Flaunt magazine. Gadot said in this interview that Gunn and Safran told her that “Wonder Woman 3” would be made.
“They told me, and I quote, ‘You’re in the best hands.'” Gadot said of meeting James Gunn and Peter Safran. We are going to work with you to make Wonder Woman 3. You don’t need to worry because we love you as Wonder Woman. We’ll see in time.”
Variety also heard from sources that Gadot was never told anything about “Wonder Woman 3,” and that Gadot’s character Wonder Woman would continue in the new DC Universe. At the beginning of the year, Gunn and Safran showed off the first movies in their new DC Universe, which included “Superman: Legacy.” They are still very focused on these new movies.
Variety has reached out to Gadot’s agent to get more information.
Gadot created the character of Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder’s DC Universe. She made her appearance as Wonder Woman in “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” and went on to direct “Wonder Woman” and “Wonder Woman 1984.” Gadot’s Wonder Woman also had small roles in DC movies like “Shazam! Fury of the Gods” and “Justice League.” Patty Jenkins directed her two “Wonder Woman” movies that stood on their own. Before Gunn and Safran were named the new heads of DC Studios, they worked on “Wonder Woman 3” together.
The news came out in December of last year that “Wonder Woman 3” had fallen apart because Warner Bros. executives turned down Jenkins’ story for the sequel. Jenkins quit the project in public. The news came out soon after Gunn and Safran took over DC Studios and said they were going to change the DC Universe. This led to rumors that Jenkins had turned down attempts to change “Wonder Woman 3” to fit into their new DC Universe.
In a tweet, Jenkins said, “I never walked away.” “I was ready to think about anything you asked of me.” From what I knew, there was nothing I could do right now to make things better. I know that these choices are hard right now because DC is clearly busy with all the changes they need to make.
Gunn backed Jenkins up on Twitter about an hour after Jenkins posted her statement. He said, “I can confirm that all of Peter and I’s interactions with you were only pleasant and professional.”
During their January press conference to introduce the first part of their new DC Universe, which they called “Gods and Monsters,” Gunn and Safran also talked about the only Wonder Woman-related project they are working on right now. That’s “Paradise Lost,” a show that comes before Max. Safran called the show a “Game of Thrones-ish story.” It takes place on the island of Themyscira before Wonder Woman was born.
Safran said of the project, “It’s really about the political drama behind a society of all women.”
The most latest things Gadot said about “Wonder Woman 3” happened before the SAG-AFTRA strike. She said them while on tour promoting the Netflix spy thriller “Heart of Stone,” which starts streaming on August 11.
