Gal Gadot-James Gunn Controversy Over Wonder Woman 3: All You Need to Know!

Author: Shobith C / Aug 13, 2023

The entertainment world is buzzing with speculations and conflicting reports surrounding the highly anticipated Wonder Woman 3, starring the beloved Gal Gadot as the Amazon warrior. A recent article from Variety has thrown a curveball, revealing that there are no concrete plans for a third Wonder Woman movie at DC Studios, despite Gadot’s assurances of her involvement in the sequel. Let’s dive into the details and attempt to make sense of this intriguing situation.

According to Variety, sources familiar with the situation have stated that there is no active development for a Wonder Woman movie at DC Studios, and neither James Gunn nor Peter Safran, key figures in the DC cinematic universe, have announced any Wonder Woman-related project, except for the Paradise Lost prequel series on HBO Max.

This report stands in stark contrast to what Gal Gadot initially revealed in an interview with, where she expressed her excitement about reprising the iconic role of Wonder Woman. She later reaffirmed this during an interview with Flaunt Magazine, recounting a meeting with James Gunn and Peter Safran where they assured her of her involvement in Wonder Woman 3, stating, “You’re in the best hands. We’re going to develop Wonder Woman 3 with you. [We] love you as Wonder Woman— you’ve got nothing to worry about.” This reassurance seemed to put any doubts to rest.

However, there’s an interesting twist in the story. James Gunn, the acclaimed director behind projects like “Guardians of the Galaxy,” responded to a fan question a few months ago, confirming that he had indeed met with Gal Gadot about her Wonder Woman return. He stated, “Yes, we met with her weeks ago.” This statement aligns with Gadot’s account, adding another layer of complexity to the situation.

So, what are we to believe? It’s essential to consider the possibility that there might be some miscommunication or changing plans within DC Studios. Either Variety’s sources have been misinformed or there’s a discrepancy between the reassurances given to Gadot and the current status of the project. It’s crucial to remain patient and wait for official announcements from the parties involved.

This controversy highlights the challenges of navigating the world of entertainment news, where conflicting reports and behind-the-scenes negotiations can often lead to confusion. Fans of Gal Gadot’s portrayal of Wonder Woman should keep an eye out for official statements from DC Studios, James Gunn, and Peter Safran to get a clearer picture of the situation. Until then, we can only speculate and hope that the truth behind the Wonder Woman 3 saga will soon come to light, providing clarity for all those eagerly awaiting the next chapter in this beloved superhero franchise.
