WONDER WOMAN 3 Plans Scrapped as a Big Reboot is Seemingly Coming in 2024 From New DC Studios Heads

Writer and director Patty Jenkins and her script for WONDER WOMAN 3 is a no-go at the newly minted DC Studios. This is the headline from Deadline as new DC Studios heads James Gunn and Peter Safran are looking to pretty much reboot most of the DCU starting in 2024. 

Gunn's own THE SUICIDE SQUAD franchise, including his PEACEMAKER series, seemingly are safe and could be the template basis for a tone in the DCU and its connected franchises moving forward.

Deadline reports:

"In the first big bold move by the new heads of DC, James Gunn and Peter Safran, Deadline has confirmed that they’ve put the kibosh on Patty Jenkins’ treatment for Wonder Woman 3. The filmmaker was expected to hand in a screenplay, we understand, and instead the new bosses got pieces of paper that just weren’t suitable...

"One source close to the situation told Deadline that Jenkins could very well hand in another take on the superhero, but it’s not evident that will happen.

"There was loose talk out there that talks broke down with Henry Cavill to reprise his Superman role, despite his Instagram announcement to return before Safran and Gunn took the top job, but there’s no script or director or greenlight for that the next Man of Steel movie. There are staffers at Warners who remain in the dark as to what Gunn and Safran’s grand design is, but they’re focusing squarely on story and how the movies will interconnect with TV series."

This all happens right after BLACK ADAM reintroduced actor Henry Cavill's return as Superman in the end credits, however, with this new report it seems like fans everywhere who wanted Cavill back in the cape might not get that in the end. Both a new Superman movie and a BLACK ADAM sequel are possibly on the chopping block too, but this is not confirmed.

More to come as the new DC Studios heads are to meet with Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav in the coming days to present him their new and fresh outline for the DC Universe moving forward.
