Wonder Woman 3 would no longer advance to DC Studios. According to The Hollywood Reporter, director Patty Jenkins recently submitted the script for the Gal Gadot-directed film, which she co-wrote with Geoff Johns (suicide squad). However, newly appointed co-leads James Gunn and Peter Safran, alongside co-chairmen of Warner Bros. Pictures Michael De Luca and Pamela Abdy broke the news to the filmmaker, informing her that Wonder Woman 3’s arc “didn’t align with new (but still ongoing) plans. This development comes just a day after star Gadot has expressed his excitement about playing the Amazonian warrior again.


“I was so grateful to have the opportunity to play such an incredible and iconic character and more than anything I am grateful to you fans,” Gadot said. on Twitter. “I look forward to sharing his next chapter with you.” It’s unclear if the actress was aware of Wonder Woman 3’s fate at the time of the tweet. For the uninitiated, Jenkins has realized wonder woman (2017) and Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) – the latter of which received mixed reactions from fans and critics. THR also notes that while production costs aren’t a factor, the studio could end up saving “tens of millions of dollars” by canceling the third installment altogether. His sources suggest that with Wonder Woman 3, Gadot in the lead was eligible for a salary of $20 million (about Rs 165 crore), while the director “would have received $12 million” (about Rs 99 crore) .

DC Studios co-heads Gunn and Safran are set to meet with Warner Bros. CEO. Discovery’s David Zaslav next week to unveil their plan to help “reset” the DC Universe. Zaslav is known to be on a mission to turn the otherwise messy comic book universe into a connected arc, akin to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, by laying out a 10-year plan that emphasizes quality over quality. amount. As part of the process, he canceled a bunch of films currently in production, including the Leslie Grace-directed film bat girl, and hired the aforementioned pair Gunn and Safran to oversee DC’s film, TV series and animated projects. With these new leaders in charge, THR cites a few rumors and possibilities, claiming that this could be the end of the Snyderverse.

“The first, which builds on Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 3 closure, is the closing curtain of the Snyderverse and the heroes chosen by filmmaker Zack Snyder for his Justice League,” it reads. “This one sees the closure of Man of Steel 2, with a return of Henry Cavill, and no longer having Aquaman, directed by Jason Momoa. After a post-credits stage appearance in black adam, Man of Steel star Cavill took to Instagram to reveal he was returning to play Superman. This news was corroborated by a separate report which indicated that a Man of Steel sequel was in development at the WBD offices, with Charles Roven (The Dark Knight) attached to produce.

However, this new report suggests that Cavill’s future with the franchise and the possibility of another black adam iteration is in question. This latest Dwayne Johnson-directed film only managed to gross $354.8 million (approx. Rs. 3,166 crore), with a production budget of over $190 million (approx. Rs. 1,563 crore).

The report further claims that Momoa could become a “pivotal figure” with Gunn and Safran’s plans. His next film Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom was delayed earlier this year and will now be released on December 25, 2023, marking the last film produced by the old regime – led by former DC Films chairman Walter Hamada. That said, THR’s sources say this wouldn’t mark the end of Momoa’s stint with DC, as it’s supposedly tied to a Lobo project, which follows a cigar-smoking intergalactic bounty hunter.

That said, Matt Reeves’ Batman universe doesn’t seem affected by Gunn and Safran’s new plans. The director plots an expansion of the universe with a sequel, a spin-off series based on Colin Farell’s Penguin, and several films based on the Dark Knight’s Gallery of Thieves. The last of them is still in early development.
