The next installment of the Wonder Woman franchise, tentatively named Wonder Woman 3, has been in the plans for the DC universe, but an article in The Hollywood Reporter says that the movie has been shelved:

Multiple sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 3 is not moving forward and is considered dead in its current incarnation.

Sources say that Jenkins recently submitted her treatment, co-written with Geoff Johns, and that Gunn and Safran, as well as Warner Bros. Pictures co-chairs and co-CEOs Michael De Luca and Pamela Abdy, broke the news to the filmmaker, telling her the project — as it stood — did not fit in with the new (but still unfolding) plans. Jenkins directed and co-wrote the previous two movies, starring Gal Gadot and released in 2017 and 2020. No decision has been made about next steps.

Patty Jenkins directed and co-wrote both previous movies. Wonder Woman in 2017 was great and showed audiences that the DC superhero universe had promise, especially when the Marvel superheros were on the big screen non-stop since Iron Man debuted in 2008, and that a female-led superhero movie could be both good and successful. Gal Gadot also played Wonder Woman/Diana Prince in the DC universe movies Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016 and Justice League in 2017.

Unfortunately, Wonder Woman 1984 was released in 2020 and it was a disappointment that didn't replicate the magic of the original and tarnished the chances for a third installment. The DC universe hasn't exactly been gangbusters in recent years, with more turmoil and controversy than amazing movies that printed money at the box office.

All those factors probably didn't help the chances that Wonder Woman 3 would ever see the light of day. I'm glad, however, that we have the original movie to enjoy and hopelessly imagine what might have been!
