The third Wonder Woman movie from Patty Jenkins with star Gal Gadot will not move forward under the new DC leadership. New bosses James Gunn and Peter Safran prepare to launch DC Studios and guide superhero movies for the next half decade.
The Hollywood Reporter, citing sources, said that Jenkins recently turned in her treatment, which she co-wrote with Geoff Johns. Gunn, Safran, as well as co-chairs and co-CEOs of Warner Bros. Pictures Michael De Luca and Pamela Abdy, told her that the project did not fit with the new plans that are under works. The two previous Gal Gadot films, which were released in 2017 and 2020, were directed and co-written by Jenkins.
