The first Wonder Woman film was released in 2017 to critical and commercial success. Because of the underwhelming reception to Zack Snyder’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Gadot’s limited experience in leading roles, fans were dubious before the film’s release.

The film received mixed reviews from critics and audiences, despite the fact that it was released at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Wonder Woman 3 has been in the works since 2020, with Gadot set to return in the lead role and Jenkins in charge of the threequel.
Wonder Women 3 Scrapped at DC Studios
However, Wonder Woman 3 hit a major roadblock just one day after Gadot celebrated her casting anniversary. Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 3 is currently regarded as being dead and not moving forward in its most recent iteration, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

They are currently working on a multi-year plan to reunite the franchise in both film and television.

Henry Cavill’s Superman might not get his Man of Steel 2 after all, despite appearing in Black Adam and allegedly filming a cameo for The Flash movie. After Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom in 2023, no additional Aquaman movies starring Jason Momoa are currently in the works. Next week, Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav is anticipated to hear Gunn and Safran’s 10-year plan.
