Not the cool endless variety, the DC Extended Universe seems to be in a state of crisis all the time. Almost every upcoming DCEU movie and TV program is now in doubt with the surprising cancellations of recent projects like the HBO Max Batgirl feature and the impending cancellation of fan favorites like Harley Quinn and Doom Patrol. However, it seems that forthcoming movies will feature more of the Gal Gadot Wonder Woman. It appears, according to The Direct, that Gal Gadot is already scheduled to feature in a number of movies; the only remaining issue is which ones.
The DC Extended Universe has not included Gal Gadot since 2020’s Wonder Woman 1984. The sequel, which takes place in the 1980s, was not nearly as popular as the original Wonder Woman, which was directed by Patty Jenkins and was one of the Snyderverse’s most highly lauded films. It also had the unfortunate luck to have its theatrical premiere rescheduled several times because it came out at a difficult period for movie companies. Although a third Gal Gadot Wonder Woman film has been in development for a while, it still seems to be in the script development stage, which is not a good indication.
Gal Gadot might be popping back up as Wonder Woman in a lot of forthcoming projects, as long as Warner Bros Discovery CEO David Zaslav doesn’t abruptly shut them down. Since the Dwayne Johnson-starring Black Adam is being widely marketed as the DCEU’s next installment, it could make sense for Diana of Themyscira to appear and tie the new film more closely to the previous one. The frequently-delayed Flash movie starring Ezra Miller is supposedly immune to David Zaslav’s death ray of cancelation, and given that the Flash and Wonder Woman are comrades in the Justice League, it would be natural.
The impending sequel to the DCEU’s biggest film office hit, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, is another option. Is it feasible that Gal Gadot may reprise her role as Wonder Woman in the Jason Momoa movie, which already has Ben Affleck’s Batman confirmed to be in it? She will star with Zachary Levi in the next Shazam: Fury of the Gods film, according to many sources, although Warner Bros. has not yet provided an official confirmation. There may be a link because the movie’s narrative centers on three daughters of the Greek titan Atlas, placing them squarely in Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman’s mythology.
All things considered, it seems like Warner Bros Discovery is eager to leave the DCEU’s Snyderverse period behind, and it’s possible that Gal Gadot’s interpretation of Wonder Woman won’t last much longer. All options are conceivable because it is difficult to predict how the DCEU will look in even a year. Gal Gadot is presently set to appear in a number of roles other than that of Wonder Woman, so it appears that she is also prepared to leave the character behind.
