Wonder Woman 3 not moving forward at Warner Bros

Wonder Woman 3, Gal Gadot

As the new DC Universe starts to take shape under the direction of James Gunn and Peter Safran, not every project in development before the big regime change will see the light of day. Unfortunately, that seems to include Wonder Woman 3. THR has reported that the Patty Jenkins sequel is no longer moving forward and “is considered dead in its current incarnation.

THR’s report states that Patty Jenkins and Geoff Johns recently submitted their treatment for Wonder Woman 3, but that James Gunn, Peter Safran, and Warner Bros. Pictures co-chairs and co-CEOS Michael De Luca and Pamela Abdy had to tell Jenkins that it didn’t “fit in with the new (but still unfolding) plans” for the new DC Universe. We’re still a couple of months out from Gunn and Safran unveiling their plan for the next eight-to-ten-years of the DC Universe, but it’s got to be difficult considering that there are still several major DC movies on the slate.

The report adds that Warner Bros. could stand to save “tens of millions of dollars” by not making Wonder Woman 3. Gal Gadot was set to receive $20 million for the sequel while Patty Jenkins would have netted $12 million, and that’s not counting any back-end bonuses. Just yesterday, Gal Gadot tweeted how grateful she was to be able to play the character. “A few years ago it was announced that I was going to play Wonder Woman,” Gadot wrote. “I’ve been so grateful for the opportunity to play such an incredible, iconic character and more than anything I’m grateful for YOU.The fans.Can’t wait to share her next chapter with you.” THR doesn’t know whether or not Gadot knew anything about the project’s fate at the time.

The state of the DCU may be in flux at the moment, but I do hope we see Gal Gadot reprise the role again. Wonder Woman 1984 may have been a disappointment, but Gadot has always been great as the character.
