Even as claims of a “leadership vacuum” persist as the Walter Hamada era comes to an end, Warner Bros. is continuing to develop its DC properties. James Gunn is actively developing new projects; Henry Cavill is back as Superman; and Matt Reeves continues to build his Gotham universe through a series of projects being developed both for theaters and streaming. With the news of Superman and Batman projects in the works came news that the other member of DC’s Trinity is still very much in the plans as well.
According to a report by THR’s Borys Kit, Warner Bros. expects a script treatment for Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 3 to be ready soon. Jenkins first brought the character to the big screen in 2017 and then again in 2020 and has been working to finish the script for the third film for the last year. At one point, it was expected that production on Wonder Woman 3 might kick off in 2023, but no updated timeline has been made available since the Warner Bros./Discovery merger.
Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman has been one of the highlights of the DC Universe’s modern era and her character will be the first to complete a trilogy of films for the studio. She’s already appeared in 4 films and has an appearance the upcoming Shazam!: Fury of the Gods. With the news that Cavill is back as Superman, it would seem that it’s only a matter of time before the two reunite on screen…with Batman?
