DC has cancelled one of its biggest sequels

DC has cancelled one of its biggest sequels

DC has cancelled a major sequel as new DC Studios CEO James Gunn prepares to assemble his long term plan.

Chaos continues to reign supreme in the DCEU. It’s a shame to see but there’s no denying that the DCEU lacks focus and direction. One of this year’s major releases, Black Adam, is struggling to break even and could lose the studio up to $100M. Yikes. I shouldn’t imagine that 2023 will be smooth sailing either. Both The Flash and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom are plagued by their own casting controversies.

There is some good news. As I’m sure you’ve heard, James Gunn is now the Kevin Feige of DC so do expect to see the DCEU develop a Marvel-esque long-term plan. The bad news is that Gunn essentially needs to dismantle all current plans to build his vision which includes cancelling one of DC’s biggest sequels - and fans aren’t happy.

If you’re yet to check out Gotham Knights, take a look at our video review below.

According to an exclusive report by The Hollywood Reporter, DC has decided not to move ahead on Wonder Woman 3. Returning director Patty Jenkins is thought to have submitted proposed plans for the film to Gunn and fellow DC Studios CEO Peter Safaran, who both decided to turn the treatment down as it doesn’t fit with their current plans for the DCEU. The film “is considered dead in its current incarnation”.

That does seem to suggest that we could eventually see a Wonder Woman 3 with a reworked story. It’s certainly not on the cards at the moment though. Starring Gal Gadot, 2017’s Wonder Woman earnt a whopping $822.8 million at the box office. The 2020 sequel Wonder Woman 1984 struggled during the pandemic, taking just $169.6 million but it did go on to become the most-watched straight-to-streaming title of the year. With that in mind, you’d expect one final outing to wrap up Diana’s story.

Needless to say, fans aren’t happy with the news. Twitter user 22kellarjo wrote, “That sucks considering Gal Gadot is such a great Wonder Woman. DC just always manages to disappoint,” while DaCypher added. “That’s just sad. DC and their madness.” BuddyLove87 simply asked, “Why? It was their best franchise.” Strangely, the news broke just one day after Gadot tweeted that she “can’t wait to share” Wonder Woman’s next chapter with fans. Does .. someone need to tell her the news?
