Gal Gadot's portrayal of Wonder Woman debuted in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice in 2016 and earned widespread acclaim.

The first standalone Wonder Woman movie, released in 2017, became the highest-grossing film by a female director at that time.

Director Patty Jenkins returned to helm Wonder Woman 1984 in December 2020.

Patty Jenkins had been working on a treatment for a third Wonder Woman film, but she eventually left the project after James Gunn and Peter Safran took over as co-chairs of DC Studios, aiming to reboot the DC extended universe.

Gal Gadot confirmed that there are new plans for her to reprise her role as Wonder Woman in Wonder Woman 3, developed in collaboration with James and Peter.

Patty Jenkins denied rumors of walking away from the third film, stating that she was open to considering anything asked of her but understood the challenges and changes within the DC Studios.

As part of the rebooted cinematic universe, David Corenswet will take on the mantle of Superman, replacing Henry Cavill, and Rachel Brosnahan will join as Lois Lane, replacing Amy Adams.
