A new rumor indicates that Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot could return as the warrior princess to the DCU
James Gunn will reboot the DC Cinematic Universe and former DCEU stars like Gal Gadot presumably won’t return. But a new rumor indicates that he could return despite the contradictory news that we have been receiving in recent months.
Earlier this year, Gal Gadot surprised us all by revealing that, as far as she knew, James Gunn and Peter Safran were planning to develop a third Wonder Woman movie, “I had a meeting with Peter Safran and James Gunn, and they both “They said they would develop a third Wonder Woman with me,” the Heart of Stone star told USA Today. “They said, ‘You’re in the best hands, you have nothing to worry about.’ Time will tell.”

The never ending soap opera
The actress was set to reprise the role of Diana in a third film with WW84 director Patty Jenkins back at the helm, but we’d been led to believe the film was shelved when James Gunn and Peter Safran took over as co-directors of the films. recently implemented DC Studios.
Although a news story later appeared to deny Gal Gadot’s statements, indicating that Wonder Woman 3 was not currently in the works.
Since the new DCU is being developed as a full reboot, it was generally assumed that Gal Gadot, along with Henry Cavill and the rest of the original “SnyderVerse” cast, would be replaced as their respective characters in the future.
However, according to the scooper MyTimeToShineHelloit seems increasingly likely that James Gunn intends to choose which actors/characters he wants to keep in the franchise, and a new rumor now claims that, despite news to the contrary, the actress will return as Wonder Woman in the DCU at some point.
There are no current plans for Wonder Woman in the first chapter of the DCU slate, “Gods and Monsters,” but a Max TV series titled Paradise Lost is in development that will focus on “a Game of Thrones-type Story about Themyscira.” We had assumed that this series would lay the groundwork for a new version of the character to be introduced in the future, but it looks like Gadot might be continuing after all.
An unclear reboot
Certainly until James Gunn and Peter Safran begin to release their list of projects for their reboot there is a lot of confusion about what it will be like, the films that should close the SnyderVerse, far from doing so, have generated more doubts, leaving Black Adam aside, in which Dwayne Johnson unilaterally decided to include Henry Cavill’s Superman, Shazam 2, presented in the post-credits scene that she would join the Justice Society led by Amanda Waller, and we know that there will be a series with her as protagonist.
Flash, the movie that had to restart everything, closed the story by establishing George Clooney as the canonical Batman, perhaps also establishing David Corenswet here as the new Superman, and showed Aquaman at the end of the credits, who will return in November with his sequel , and although James Wan has said that it will be a fairly independent story from the DCEU, it is not clear if Jason Momoa’s king of Atlantis will be another of the actors who are spared a recast like Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen.
Too much confusion and a James Gunn who, although very active on social networks, has not shed much light on the matter. Something that has negatively affected the box office of this year’s DC releases and from which Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom may not be free.
Once the new projects begin to arrive on the screen in the “Gods and Monsters” chapter, we will see who remains and who does not. What do you think?
