Despite new management changes over at the DC Universe, it appears that Gal Gadot will still be involved in the Wonder Woman franchise. Gadot made her debut as Diana Prince back in 2016, when she appeared in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. She starred in Wonder Woman (2017) and its sequel Wonder Woman 1984 (2020). Gadot also starred in Justice League (2017).
In a pre-strike interview with Chris Killian of ComicBook.com, Gadot said: “I love portraying Wonder Woman. It’s so close to and dear to my heart.
From what I heard from James [Gunn] and Peter [Safran] is that we’re gonna develop a Wonder Woman 3 together.”
It’s still unclear exactly what the next Wonder Woman film will look like, or whether Patty Jenkins will be returning as director. At the moment, it’s not included in the list of upcoming projects in the studio’s “Gods and Monsters” sector. It’s being speculated that Gunn has some interest in developing an animated series based on the Wonder Woman character.
Gadot was being interviewed about her new Netflix offering Heart of Stone, scheduled for release on August 11, in which she plays the spy Rachel Stone. Heart of Stone was directed by Tom Harper from a screenplay by Greg Rucka and Allison Schroeder. According to the synopsis, “Rachel Stone is an intelligence operative, the only woman who stands between her powerful global peacekeeping organization and the loss of its most valuable — and dangerous — asset.
Released in 2017, the original Wonder Woman grossed some $822.8 million, setting a record at the time for a superhero film.
It is regarded as a groundbreaking production for the way it portrayed a woman as a superhero character. Its sequel, Wonder Woman 1984, was less profitable, perhaps because of its unfortunate timing, being released during the coronavirus lockdowns. Still, the film did not receive as much critical acclaim as did its predecessor.
