Wonder Woman 3 Will Not Be Moving Forward
The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that the previously-confirmed "Wonder Woman 3" will no longer be moving forward. According to insiders, director Patty Jenkins had recently submitted her treatment for the film to DC Studios, but it was seemingly rejected due to it not aligning with the visions of newly appointed co-heads James Gunn and Peter Safran.
Much like 2020's "Wonder Woman 1984," this third film's treatment was co-written by comic writer Geoff Johns, who also wrote 2016's "Suicide Squad." In a strange way, this could provide insight into why "Wonder Woman 3" was canceled — "1984" grossed $30 million below its $200 million budget when it was released exclusively in theaters in December 2020.
Sources also shared that the co-heads will be meeting with Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav next week to discuss their plan to reboot the DCEU. It could shed light on why exactly "Wonder Woman 3" didn't align with what they have in mind for the future of DC Studios. Warner Bros. Discovery has not commented on or confirmed the report.
