The DC film and the TV show’s future takes a new turn, James Gunn and Peter Safron handling the cockpit at DC Studios. After getting much news broken in the last week that Gunn is going to write a new reboot of Superman that is not going to feature the previous Superman actor Henry Cavill.
The combination of speculation as Jason Momoa might ultimately be done as Aquaman just after the next year’s Aquaman and the Last Kingdom. It might potentially come back to the DC Universe like the alien bounty hunter Lebo, ad led to some speculation on whether or not the other existing actors in the franchise might be that much editing or not.
We have that prevailed the theory that has been that Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman set to join that club, mainly after the news that Patty Jenkins’ incarnation of Wonder Woman 3 does not move further.
On an Instagram post, Gunn indicated that Gadot might not be exiting, telling a fan who suggested that she and Cavill are both exiting that “I’m not sure where you’re getting that we ‘booted’ Gal.” Some are also interpreting his comment to mean that Gadot might have walked away from the role after Jenkins’ film was no longer in the works, but we’ll have to wait and see if that’s the case.
Gal Gadot Will not be the next Wonder Woman?
In this fire, the new controversy is Gadot’s social media posts as it definitely hasn’t helped much this ambiguity, with her writing on Instagram just days before Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 3 exit that she’s excited about the character’s “next chapter.”
“On this day, a few years ago, was the first announcement that I was going to play Wonder Woman,” Gadot wrote. “I’ve been so grateful for the opportunity to play such an incredible, iconic character, and more than anything I’m grateful for YOU. The fans. The most amazing, warm, loving fans in the world. I’m still pinching myself to see if I will wake up. Can’t wait to share her next chapter with you.”
DC Universe will be a reboot?
Gunn has given some hints on social media amid the rumors, as the plan going forward is to tell a cohesive tale that servicing the DC characters — but that the decisions made to get there “are not going to make every single person happy every step of the way.”
“One of the things Peter & I were aware of when we took the job as heads of DC Studios was a certain minority of people online that could be, well, uproarious & unkind, to say the least,” Gunn wrote on Instagram. “Our choices for the DCU are based upon what we believe is best for the story & best for the DC characters who have been around for nearly 85 years. Perhaps these choices are great, perhaps not, but they are made with sincere hearts & integrity & always with the story in mind.
No one loves to be harassed or called names – but, to be frank, we’ve been through significantly worse. The disrespectful outcry will never, ever affect our actions. We were aware there would be a period of turbulence when we took this gig, & we knew we would sometimes have to make difficult & not-so-obvious choices, especially in the wake of the fractious nature of what came before us. But this means little to us in comparison to our jobs as artists & custodians in helping to create a wide & wonderful future for DC.”
