James Gunn has addressed the alleged cancellation wonder woman 3.
The writer, director and producer, who is overseeing the next era of DC movies alongside Peter Safran, responded to claims that plans for a third Patty Jenkins-directed film had been scrapped.
According to those reports, a proposed idea for the sequel “didn’t fit with that [studio’s] new plans”.
The claim came a day after lead actor Gal Gadot expressed his excitement for the character’s “next chapter.”
Gunn, who directed The Suicide SquadShe’s hooked up to the news now, he tells his Twitter followers: “To the story yesterday in The Hollywood ReporterSome of it is true, some of it is half true, some of it isn’t true, and some of it we haven’t yet decided if it’s true or not.
He elaborated further by saying that “building the next 10 years of history” at DC “takes time”.
Gunn said he knew “there would be an inevitable transition as we moved towards telling a cohesive story across film, television, animation and games,” adding, “The downsides of that transition were driven by the creative possibilities and dwarfed by the opportunity to do so, you build on what has worked in DC so far and help correct what hasn’t worked.”
Acknowledging the “unruly” DC fanbase, Gunn warned, “We’re not going to make every single person happy at every turn,” but assured those fans that “everything we do is done in the service of STORY and in the service of.” will be the DC CHARACTERS we know you value and have valued all of our lives.”
Gunn said fans will have to “wait for more answers on the future of the DCU.”
“We’re giving these characters and the stories the time and attention they deserve, and we have a lot more questions to ask and answer ourselves.”
The duo was hired in October of that year, taking over from DC Films boss Walter Hamada to compete with Marvel for the next decade.
“We are honored to be the stewards of these DC characters we have loved since childhood,” Gunn and Safran said in a joint statement at the time.
Jenkins first wonder woman The film (2017) grossed a whopping US$823 million (£724 million) at the global box office, but the sequel, Wonder Woman 1984 (2021) grossed $170 million after being released in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic.
