Patty Jenkins, the director of Wonder Woman, broke his silence on the cancellation of the third Wonder Woman movie. In a lengthy statement posted to social media, Jenkins clarified that she wasn’t walking away from the project, seemingly confirming that Wonder Woman may not move forward at DC under the new leadership.
In addition, he suggests that he is back in the Lucasfilm movie, Star Wars: Rogue Squadron, although he stops short of confirming the return of the film project.
In a statement on his account TwitterJenkins calls all the reports that he walked away from Wonder Woman 3 “sexy clickbait.” He also notes that “I never walked away. I was open to consider anything that was asked of me.“.

However, it seems that under the new leadership and potential plans to take down the Snyderverse, Wonder Woman 3 was always at risk of being pushed aside. “I understood that there was nothing I could do to move forward at this time.. DC is obviously focused on the changes they have to make, so I understand that these decisions are difficult at this time.”
Jenkins thanks Lynda Carter, who was gearing up for a big-screen return with Wonder Woman 3, as well as its star, Gal Gadot. “Gal is the greatest gift I have received along this journey. A dear friend, inspiration and sister. There are no words she can use to convey how magical he is.”
An interesting note Jenkins begins on is that he left the Star Wars: Rogue Squadron movie after it became apparent Wonder Woman 3 might be delayed. Disney has since removed Star Wars: Rogue Squadron from its schedule. However, Jekins says that Lucasfilm asked him if he could return after Wonder Woman 3, to which he agreed.
“They made a new deal with me. In fact, I’m still in it [Rogue Squadron] and that project has been in active development ever since.” However, Jenkins says that it is not yet clear if the film will actually come truethough development is underway.
DC continues to undergo major changes as James Gunn and Peter Safran continue to refine their plans for the company. While the future of the Snyderverse remains a mystery, Gunn recently revealed that Superman is the top priority for the new DC under his leadership.
