There have been a lot of cancellations in the DC Universe recently, and despite previous reports, fans will be happy to hear that the new DC heads James Gunn and Peter Safran are not planning to replace Gal Gadot, as the actress confirmed that she is working on developing the film with Gunn.
Wonder Woman 3 seemed to have plenty of problems, as the director of the first two films Patty Jenkins had reportedly walked away from the project, but the director later denied this report. So, Jenkins could still be on board to make the next Wonder Woman film but after Wonder Woman 1984, is that still the right decision?
In an interview with ComicBook.com before the SAG-AFTRA strike began, Gadot expressed her love and admiration for the character of Wonder Woman and she also revealed that she was in talks with Gunn and Safran about returning to reprise the character. While Jenkins’ involvement in the project is still not confirmed, we do have a confirmation that Gadot’s Wonder Woman will be included in Gunn’s new DC Universe, even if it’s a part of an Elseworlds tale, like The Batman and Joker‘s upcoming sequels. Check out a quote from Gadot below:
“I love portraying Wonder Woman. It’s so close to and dear to my heart. From what I heard from James and from Peter is that we’re gonna develop a Wonder Woman 3 together.”
Gadot recently reprised her role as Wonder Woman in the last two DC films Shazam! Fury of the Gods and The Flash. While fans seemed to dislike both movies, they still loved Gadot’s cameos in both projects. She is currently starring in a Netflix action thriller titled Heart of Stone, in which she is tasked with playing the lead role of Rachel Stone. The Netflix film also stars Jamie Dornan, Alia Bhatt, and Matthias Schweighöfer.
For now, this is all we have on Wonder Woman 3, but check out the trailer and official synopsis for Gadot’s Heart of Stone below, before it lands on Netflix on August 11, 2023.
“Gal Gadot is Agent Rachel Stone, the only intelligence operative who stands between her global, peace-keeping organization and the loss of its most valuable — and dangerous — asset, codenamed: The Heart.”
