Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 3 will not continue in her current form at Warner Bros., IndieWire has learned, leaving the future of the franchise and Star Gal Gadot’s involvement in doubt.

Wonder Woman director Jenkins has revealed a draft of the film he co-wrote with Geoff Johns, but a source says the film is going in the wrong direction for new plans currently in the works at DC Studios and that Jenkins doesn’t want to change. and made him practically dead in the studio.

New DC Studio Heads James Gunn and Peter Safran haven’t met with CEO David Zaslav to offer their thoughts on DC’s future, but the film’s treatment is not up to the studio’s direction. No further decisions have been made about their next steps, and while Jenkins will likely step aside and pursue other projects, Gadot’s status remains unclear depending on what Gunn and Safran come up with, the source added.

Representative for Warner Bros. did not respond to requests for comment.

The news comes just a day after star Gal Gadot shared a post commemorating the anniversary of Jenkins’ 2017 box office hit: one of the more successful superhero origin stories, certainly in the acclaimed Snyderverse franchise, and such, that audiences love so much. and critics alike. Wonder Woman 1984 underperformed but positively was described by IndieWire’s Kate Erbland as “80s explosion of excess and intrigue.”

“On that day, several years ago, the first announcement was that I would be playing Wonder Woman,” the actress wrote on Instagram. “I’m so grateful for the opportunity to play such an incredible iconic character, and most of all I thank YOU. The fans. The most amazing, warm and loving fans in the world. I’m still pinching myself to see if I wake up . I can’t wait to share the next chapter with you.”

Following the hiring of Gunn and Safran in October, DC Universe is keeping moving as Warner Bros. looking forward to the release of Shazam next year! Wrath of the Gods, The Flash starring Ezra Miller, Blue Beetle and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom would be the last films made under DC’s previous regime. While Henry Cavill recently announced that he will be returning as Superman for a possible sequel to 2013’s Man of Steel, it remains to be seen what casting decisions from DC’s Snyderverse era, if any, are still under Gunn’s vision and Saffron remains. Also unclear is the future of Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam, which grossed less than $400 million at the global box office despite The Rock’s enthusiasm to become the new face and flagship of the DC franchise.

Merger of Warner Bros. Discovery is behind many of the year’s most surprising production events: including the infamous delay of Adil El Arbi and Bilal Fallah’s Batgirl which is nearing completion.
