Warner Bros. quickly declared that they are proceeding with a third movie after Wonder Woman 1984‘s release in December 2020. But since that time, there hasn’t been a significant update on the project. In addition, some are unsure if it even continues in DC under the current administration.
Wonder Woman 3 has been canceled by DC Studios in its current form. The choice was decided following the submission of a treatment for the movie that was co-written by director Patty Jenkins and screenwriter Geoff Johns.
The presidents of DC Studios, James Gunn and Peter Safran, as well as Warner Bros Jenkins was told by pictures chairpersons Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy that their vision for the new DCU they are creating does not align with her notion for the movie.
It is not yet clear what ambitions Gunn and Safran have for the character in their DC Universe concept or whether Jenkins and Gadot will continue to serve as the project’s primary creative forces.
Gadot was expected to get $20 million for the third movie, while Jenkins was expected to make $12 million with the prospect of backend incentives for each of them, according to the article, which did add that the cancellation might save the studio a significant amount of money.
The day before the project was canceled, Gadot tweeted a thank you message to the fans in honor of the anniversary of her Wonder Woman casting. She also hinted at the character’s next storyline. It is still unclear whether this is why the post was published at this particular time.
Many fans of Gadot‘s upcoming Wonder Woman solo movie may be disappointed by this announcement, but it also sounds like the start of what’s to come for the new DC Universe under Gunn and Safran. We should soon learn if Gadot will continue in the role, and it will be exciting to watch.
