WONDER WOMAN Director Patty Jenkins Reportedly Walked Away From Threequel; Gal Gadot Could Stay On As Diana

A new report indicates that Patty Jenkins was the one who walked away from Wonder Woman 3 after the studio "gave notes" on her treatment. Is there a chance Gal Gadot could stay on in the role?

Following last night's press-stopping report on the current and future state of the DCU, Tinseltown is said to be in "chaos" mode, with an apparent lack of communication to talent reps and content creators by the studio resulting in a lot of concern.

“This is creating a riot,” says one Deadline source. “And it’s a horrible optic. This business is based on relationships.”

Things are sure to settle down once James Gunn and Peter Safran unveil their plans (a meeting with Warner Bros. Discovery boss David Zaslav is reportedly set for next week), but for now, we are all left to wonder what lies in store for the likes of Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa and rest of the "Snyderverse" era actors.

We had been led to believe that Wonder Woman 3 was dead in the water, and while that might well be the case, it sounds like Gadot could stay on as Diana without director Patty Jenkins (this would explain the actress' recent Tweet, anyway).

Apparently, it was actually Jenkins who decided to walk away after "receiving notes on the treatment she submitted to the studio." It seems WB higher-ups weren't completely sold on her pitch, which was said to contain "character arc problems which rivaled that of Wonder Woman 1984."

"Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy had concerns about the treatment before Safran and Gunn weighed in," claims Deadline. "The group provided notes. Jenkins fought back and defended her vision that the threequel’s character arcs were solid. Jenkins was given the opportunity for another pass, but opted to walk."

If accurate, this would seem to suggest that the studio was willing to move forward with a third Wonder Woman movie before Jenkins bailed, so there is a chance Gadot will be given the opportunity to reprise her role at some point.

UPDATE: The Wrap has now weighed in with a few more details, and it sounds like Jenkins was not very happy about the situation... to say the least!

According to their report, the filmmaker had no hesitation in letting WBD brass “know that they were wrong, that they didn’t understand her, didn’t understand the character, didn’t understand character arcs and didn’t understand what Jenkins was trying to do.” It's also claimed that Jenkins had no interest in listening to Gunn and Safran's ideas.

“She just doesn’t want to allow them to have a seat at the table [or] to have an opinion on something new that she might come up with,” said the site's source.
