Gal Gadot‘s Wonder Woman was one of the highlights of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, bringing a fresh and unpredictable energy to the grim third-act battle sequence. For fans who felt that the film (and Man of Steel before it) was too damn dark, she was a shining beacon of light, an uncomplicated hero who actually had the audacity to smile while battling a giant monster from another world.

The still new DC movie universe isn’t on fire yet, but it’s definitely singed. The studio is well-aware that they’re in a precarious position and need to carefully consider what they do next.
And something is definitely going on behind the scenes. Warner Bros. has announced a slew of changes to their schedule, including new release dates for Wonder Woman, Jungle Book: Origins, and two untitled DC superhero movies.
