The third Wonder Woman movie might still be ages away. But Gal Gadot, the star who brought the character to life, has shared some cool Wonder Woman-related images with fans. The actress recently took to social media to share images of herself behind the wheel of a sweet new ride. What can only be described as a “custom car” is inspired by the Amazonian superhero and features the Wonder Woman insignia on the horn and dashboard.
Gal Gadot didn’t specify if the vehicle belongs to her or if she simply stumbled upon it and wanted some cool pictures. But having portrayed the popular DC superhero on screen four times, she’ll forever be associated with Wonder Woman. Making references to the superhero, Gadot joked that although it’s “no invisible jet” it will still do.
In Wonder Woman movie news, Warner Bros is currently developing a third film starring Gal Gadot as the DC heroine. The announcement was made just two days after Wonder Woman 1984 debuted in select theaters across the U.S and on HBO Max.
Patty Jenkins is confirmed to return as director and writer, with Gal Gadot reprising her role as the titular character. The project will be the final Wonder Woman film, completing a trilogy that began in 2017. There is currently no information around Wonder Woman 3’s production or the cast. But IMDB does have the film’s release date listed as 2023.
However, there have been a few whispers about the plot. In a 2020 interview with German publication Geek (translated and shared by @DCMovieNews2), Patty Jenkins said Wonder Woman 3 is set to jump through time again, taking Gal Gadot into a more contemporary setting. And the movie will even acknowledge the impact of the coronavirus.
Speaking with Total Film at the time (via Heroic Hollywood), Jenkins said the pandemic changed her approach to Wonder Woman 3 and she’s taking a moment before formulating the narrative.
“I’ve really hit the pause button. Because the truth is, where that plotline was coming from was our state of being six months ago. And so I want to make sure that I’m totally absorbing whatever the result of this pandemic is.”
The original Wonder Woman movie was a massive global success earning a total of $821.8 million at the box office against an estimated production budget of $120–150 million. The story chronicled the details of Diana Prince’s origin story and filled a void for fans who wanted to see a female-led superhero movie on the big screen.
The film was praised by fans and critics, especially Gal Gadot and her performance, so a sequel (Wonder Woman 1984) was released in late 2020 on HBO Max (due to the global pandemic) and in select theatres around the world. It received mixed reviews from critics who praised its “escapist qualities” and Jenkins’s direction but found it “overindulgent or cliché”. The film earned a modest $166 million at the worldwide box office but became the most-watched straight-to-streaming title of 2020.
In addition to Wonder Woman 3, a spin-off is also in the works at Warner Bros. Produced by Jenkins, the project is said to focus on the Amazons of Themyscira. But there is no word on whether Gal Gadot will reprise her role for the project.
