While the long-term future of DC Studios with its new heads, James Gunn and Peter Safran, continues to unfold, at least a movie from the previous regime is destined to die: Wonder Woman 3.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gunn and Safran have recently spent some time “thoroughly planning” their DC project and have a roadmap in the works that they’re ready to show Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav for his approval. One movie not included in these plans is Wonder Woman 3..
Insiders Say Patty Jenkins’ Third Wonder Woman Movie With Star Gal Gadot “She is considered dead in her current incarnation.”
According to sources at The Hollywood Reporter, Jenkins recently unveiled her treatment for the third Wonder Woman movie co-written by Geoff Johns. However, Gunn, Safran and Warner Bros. Pictures co-CEOs Michael De Luca and Pamela Abdy, They have communicated to Jenkins that this film does not fit into the new plan of DC Studios.
Jenkins has directed two Wonder Woman films, a solo origin story in 2017 and the sequel Wonder Woman 1984 in 2020, both of which star Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. In addition, Gadot played Wonder Woman in several DC Snyderverse films, including Batman v Superman and Justice League.
It is not known what the future of the franchise is And if, under a potential reboot or reboot, Gal Gadot will still be in the role. And it’s not just her either.
The report claims that DC’s new plan could be close the Snyderverse and not count on Man of Steel 2 starring Henry Cavill, as well as ending the Aquaman movies starring Jason Momoa. Both characters will make a cameo in the next The Flash movie.
Cavill announcing his return as Superman wasn’t premature, as there were serious plans for a sequel and even another Justice League movie starring the actors and actresses of the Snyderverse. But Gunn and Safran’s plans could skip them entirely, as well as a Black Adam sequel.
Sounds like Gunn and Safran are ready to start with a clean slate for DCand while the Snyderverse remains a DC talking point, it could stymie the new presidents’ plans for a new DC Studios.
