After director Patty Jenkins left, and James Gunn took over and confirmed the DCU was rebooting, fans were convinced that Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman days were over; but that apparently isn’t the case.
Talking to ComicBook, Gadot has confirmed that WW3 starring herself is still a go, and she’ll be working on development with the DC co-heads James Gunn and Peter Safran. Gadot shares, “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.”
So far, no details about the story or director has been revealed for the project, but it would be safe to say that the story will take place in the new established continuity of James Gunn’s DC. So far, only Blue Beetle has been confirmed to take place in that timeline, but fans are eagerly waiting for more details down the line.
Out of all the original Zack Snyder Justice League members, it’s probably Gal Gadot who has appeared in more recent properties, cementing her Wonder Woman role. She had appeared in a short cameo in Shazam! Fury of the Gods, and she also made a brief appearance in The Flash.
With both Wonder Woman films having been period pieces, it would be great if we could actually follow Diana in a modern setting, and see how she deals with women issues in today’s world.
I’m just crossing my fingers they hire back Patty Jenkins. Though I wasn’t the biggest fan of WW84, I think Jenkins deserves to see her story through.
No release date has been announced for Wonder Woman 3.
