Gal Gadot celebrated the anniversary of being cast in the Wonder Woman role just a few days ago. Gadot even assured her audience that exciting news regarding a potential third film would be revealed shortly. Ironically, the formal cancellation of Wonder Woman 3 was made just one day after her Instagram post.
Gal Gadot played Diana Prince in Patty Jenkins’ first Wonder Woman movie, which was released in theaters in 2017 and received rave reviews from critics and viewers. Wonder Woman came after her Batman v Superman debut. Gadot’s character then appeared in 2017’s Justice League and in 2021 Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
Gadot’s most recent portrayal of the Princess of Themyscira was in Patty Jenkins’ 2020 sequel Wonder Woman 1984. In addition, Wonder Woman appeared briefly in James Gunn’s HBO Max series Peacemaker. However, she was portrayed by Kimberley von Ilberg, a stunt double. Even though Warner Bros. produced it under a previous director, Wonder Woman 3 received a green light in December 2020.
Why Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman 3 has been Cancelled
According to director Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman 3 is “dead,” at least in its current state. Numerous reliable sites, including Variety, have reported this news, which has yet to be formally confirmed. This comes before DC Studios’ new CEOs, James Gunn and Peter Safran, reveal their vision for the company’s future. The two will soon announce their multi-year plan for the end of the DCU.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Patty Jenkins, who co-wrote the screenplay with Geoff Johns, recently submitted it to James Gunn, Peter Safran, and Warner Bros. The Wonder Woman sequel didn’t fit with Michael De Luca and Pamela Abdy’s newly developed plan for the future of the DC Universe on the big screen, they claimed.
