Wonder Woman 3: DC is closing the door on the sequel Patty Jenkins despite Gal Gadot tweeting about the ‘next chapter’

DC has reportedly ended Patty Jenkins’ proposal for wonder woman 3 Just a day after star Gal Gadot told fans she was excited for the heroine’s “next chapter.”

“I was so grateful for the opportunity to play such an incredible, iconic character, and more than anything, I thank YOU. The fans. I can’t wait to share her next chapter with you guys,” Gadot tweeted Tuesday (December 6), alongside a photo of herself as Wonder Woman.

However, The Hollywood Reporter reported on Wednesday that a treatment (meaning a summary in film language) submitted for a third installment “didn’t match the [studio’s] new plans”. The decision was also confirmed by meeting.

Corresponding THR, Gadot was set to receive $20m (£16.4m) to direct Wonder Woman 3, while writer/director Jenkins would have received $12m (£9.8m).

The Independent has reached out to representatives from DC and Jenkins for comment.

It’s a bold decision made by DC’s new leaders, Guardians of the Galaxy Director James Gunn and producer Peter Safran.

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.

“We look forward to collaborating with the world’s most talented writers, directors and actors to create an integrated, multi-layered universe that still allows for the individual expression of the artists involved. Our commitment to Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Harley Quinn, and the rest of the DC stable of characters is matched only by our commitment to the wonders of human possibility that these characters represent.

“We look forward to enlivening the theatrical experience around the world by telling some of the biggest, most beautiful and greatest stories ever told.”

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.
