The decade's most triggering comedy
Gal Gadot definitely got everyone’s attention when she appeared to do more than just hint that another “Wonder Woman” was happening – and this after the film’s director Patty Jenkins announced last year the film had been axed by the new leadership at DC Studios.
During a recent interview with ComicBook.com, the 38-year-old actress said “Wonder Woman 3” was still in the works, referencing an apparent conversation with the new heads of the studio — James Gunn and Peter Safran — who took over last year.
“I love portraying Wonder Woman,” Gadot said when asked about one more film in the franchise. “It’s so close to and dear to my heart.”
“From what I heard from James [Gunn] and from Peter [Safran] is that we’re gonna develop a ‘Wonder Woman 3’ together,” she added.

In December, reports surfaced about the future of the third film, with Gadot reprising the role under the direction of Jenkins, who directed the franchise’s first two movies, “Wonder Woman” and “Wonder Woman 1984.”
Initially, speculation was that Jenkins had “walked away” and “Wonder Woman 3” was not happening because the director had refused to reshape the film after it was announced Gunn and Safran were taking over and the pair had shared there was going to be some changes in the DC Universe.
Jenkins then went public, disputing claims she ever “walked away” from the sequel, Variety noted.
“When there started being backlash about WW3 not happening, the attractive clickbait false story that it was me that killed it or walked away started to spread,” her statement read. “This is simply not true. I never walked away.”
“I was open to considering anything asked of me,” she added. “It was my understanding there was nothing I could do to move anything forward at this time. DC is obviously buried in changes they are having to make, so I understand these decisions are difficult right now.”
There are not currently any films titled “Wonder Woman among the slate of projects coming out of DC’s Chapter One of the DC Universe, called “Gods and Monsters,” the CB.com noted.
The interview was done before SAG actor’s strike, the outlet noted.
