Director Patty Jenkins has responded to rumors that Wonder Woman 3 has been cancelled.
Jenkins released a lengthy statement on social media. to clarify that she did not “gone” from what was to be the third installment in the franchise.
It was revealed last week that the sequel to Jenkins’ first two superhero films starring Gal Gadot as Diana Prince has been shelved. The film was initially reported to be the grain in the mill of a DC Studios relaunch under new bosses James Gunn and Peter Safran.
Jenkins was reported to have submitted a proposal for a third film, and it was decided that her plans were not in line with DC Studios’ new direction, which is still being worked out.
But in the absence of official announcements, rumors have circulated that Jenkins has refused to be limited by DC Studios’ future plans for its superhero universe.
Jenkins began her statement by saying that while she doesn’t usually speak out on matters of her personal career, she can’t let the inaccuracies continue.
When the backlash against 3 world war it didn’t happen, an attractive clickbait false story began to circulate that it was me who killed him or left. It’s just not true,” she wrote.
“I never left. I was open to any questions asked of me. As far as I understood, there was nothing I could do to move forward at this time.
“Obviously DC is mired in the changes they need to make, so I understand these decisions are difficult right now.
“I don’t want what was a great trip with world land on [a] negative note. I loved and am honored to be the person who directed these last two Wonder Woman films.
“She is an incredible character. Living according to its values makes a person a better person every day. I wish her and her legacy an amazing future, with or without me.”
Jenkins paid tribute to Linda Carter, who played Wonder Woman in the 1970s TV series and had a cameo in Wonder Woman 1984hinting at an expanded role in any future films.
The director also praised Gadot, the crew, and the fan community.
Jenkins’ statement was echoed by Gunn, who retweeted it and added: “I can attest that everything Peter and my interactions with you have been nothing but pleasant and professional.”
It was a chaotic start to Gunn and Safran’s tenure as joint executives at DC Studios. Any significant creative change at the top is expected to go through growth challenges.
After the news about it Wonder Woman 3 was conserved Hollywood Reporter published an article citing insiders saying that there were many changes on the negotiating table, including speculation that Henry Cavill’s Superman sequel would not come to fruition.
Cavill’s Superman sequel will be swept away along with other iterations of DC Studios characters from the Sniderverse era, including Jason Momoa’s Aquaman.
After that story Gunn responded on twitter. He wrote: “So. As for yesterday’s story in The Hollywood Reporter, some of it is true, some of it is half true, some of it is not true, and some of it is not yet decided whether it is true or not.
“While this first month in Washington has been fruitful, creating the next 10 years of history takes time and we are still just getting started.
“Peter and I decided to lead DC Studios knowing that we were in a controversial environment, both in the stories we tell and in the audience itself, and there would be an inevitable transition period as we transitioned to telling a coherent story in films, on television, in animation. and games.
“But in the end, the shortcomings of that transition period were eclipsed by creativity and opportunities to take what had worked so far in DC and help fix what hadn’t.
“We know we’re not going to make every person happy every step of the way, but we can promise that everything we do is in the service of history and in the service of the DC characters we know and cherish. all our lives.”
Gunn and Safran were appointed in October to oversee DC Studios’ release, replacing Walter Hamada, then the latest in a line of studio bosses in charge of Warner Bros’ superhero franchise.
The hope is that Gunn and Safran will bring a more coherent vision of iconic characters including Superman, Batman and more, in the same vein that Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige has managed to do with the MCU.
Gunn is best known for his guardians of the galaxy films for Marvel, but also made Suicide Squad for DC as well as TV spin-offs peacekeeper.
In a fan question this week, Gunn said that Superman would be a “huge priority, if not the biggest priority” for him. He also said that the claim that he does not like Cavill is false.
Cavill first played Superman/Clark Kent in a Zack Snyder film. Man of Steelrepetition of a character Batman v Superman and then Justice League. He last appeared as a character in 2017 before appearing in the middle of the credits last month. Black Adam.
Cavill posted on social media that he was “officially” Superman again. But nothing is certain in the superhero movie business, and the question of whether Gunn and Safran will keep it, ironically, is still up in the air.
