WONDER WOMAN 3 Officially In The Works; Lynda Carter Hints At Return As Asteria

During DC FanDome earlier today, Patty Jenkins confirmed that she's now working on a third Wonder Woman movie, and original Diana Lynda Carter seemingly confirmed that she'll be back as Asteria!

Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins confirmed that she's working on a third solo outing for Diana Prince during DC FanDome earlier today, and it sounds like the original small-screen Amazon, Lynda Carter, will be along for the ride.

Carter made a brief appearance in the mid-credits scene of WW84 as legendary warrior Asteria, who was believed to have been killed when she sacrificed herself in order to allow her fellow Amazons to escape "the tide of man" and settle on the island of Themyscria. Neither Carter or Jenkins actually confirmed the the former will reprise the role for the third movie, but some pretty major hints were dropped!

"We're super excited about Wonder Woman 3," said Jenkins. "Gal, who is the busiest person in the world with now three little kids and shooting, she's so bummed not to be able to be here. But we are all three very excited about some exciting things coming up with Wonder Woman 3." Carter then added, "Who would have thought in my life at this time in my life that this gift would just present itself to me, and that's so cool."

Sounds like she may have said a little too much, as this photo shared by Jim Lee shortly after can attest to!

Very little is known about Warner Bros.' plans for Wonder Woman 3, but after the decidedly mixed response to WW84, we wouldn't be surprised if the studio asked Jenkins to go back to the drawing board on the story outline. Regardless, it'll probably be a while before we get any more updates, because the filmmaker's next project is Star Wars: Rogue Squadron, which has set a 2023 release date.
