Gal Gadot for HBO Max Superhero Series

With Wonder Woman 1984 planned for release later this year, and HBO Max’s success with DC Extended Universe shows, it comes as no surprise that HBO Max would want Gal Gadot in one of their series.

According to a rumor from Geekosity, HBO Max would like to create a spinoff of their Titans series, which would focus on Conor Leslie’s Wonder Girl. In the second season of Titans, Wonder Girl was killed and sent to Themyscira in order to be resurrected. Theoretically, if the show gets greenlit, she will come back to life, and hopefully with a cameo by Gal Gadot.

This rumor continues to say that this new story would be part of the multiverse, but would still include Gal Gadot. How this cameo could happen would be explained after Flash, which is going to supposedly introduce the multiverse in the DCEU, and could supposedly involve Gal Gadot in some way. 

Wonder Girl

The odds of Gal Gadot being a substantial part of a Wonder Girl series does seem unlikely, but a cameo would be possible. The big question is how often Gal Gadot wants to get back into the Wonder Woman suit. In a recent interview with Collider, Wonder Woman and Wonder Woman 1984 director Patty Jenkins stated that her and Gal Gadot wanted a larger break between the second and third film in the series than what they had between the first and second installments. Jenkins hinted that both her and Gal Gadot would want some time to spend on other projects.

Yet if all these rumors are true, Gal Gadot won’t have much of a break at all. Between shooting Wonder Woman 1984, working on Zack Snyder’s Justice League, possibly having a large part as an alternative version of Wonder Woman in The Flash movie, and now, cameoing in an upcoming Wonder Girl series, Gal Gadot will be spending the majority of her time in the Wonder Woman outfit.

Gal Gadot possibly appearing in the Titans-iverse is just one of the many upcoming turns for the series. Earlier this week, we got our first look at Curran Walters’ Jason Todd in the Red Hood disguise for Season Three. This third season will also include Damaris Lewis’ promotion as series regular, playing Blackfire. The upcoming season will also include the introduction of Barbara Gordon, the former Batgirl who is now the commissioner of the Gotham City Police Department, and Dr. Jonathan Crane – also known as Scarecrow – who will be an almost Hannibal Lecter-ish character at Arkham Asylum assisting the Gotham City Police Department.

But Gal Gadot’s involvement in an HBO Max series might be a sign of DC’s bigger push with the new streaming service. Already ordered from HBO Max is Zack Snyder’s Justice League, which will also feature Gal Gadot, which is planned for release in 2021. HBO Max has also ordered Peacemaker, a spin-off of their upcoming The Suicide Squad starring John Cena, and a new series centered on Green Lantern.

Also in development outside of a potential Wonder Girl series with an appearance by Gal Gadot are DC’s Strange Adventures, the Elizabeth Banks-produced DC Super Hero High, a new series about Justice League Dark from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot, and the untitled Gotham City Police Department, which is set in the same continuity as Matt Reeves’ upcoming The Batman film.

In addition to Titans, HBO Max already has a wide variety of DC-based projects, which have yet to feature Gal Gadot or other members of the Justice League so far. HBO Max already has the Titans spinoff Doom Patrol, while their animated series Young Justice and Harley Quinn are now exclusively streaming on HBO Max.

Beyond her other Wonder Woman-related projects on the way, Gal Gadot also has Kenneth Branagh’s Death on the Nile coming out at the end of the year, and she is currently filming the action-comedy Red Notice with Dwayne Johnson and Ryan Reynolds.

But with DC investing so much into HBO Max, with multiple live-action and animated series currently on the service and upcoming, and Zack Snyder’s Justice League likely bringing many to HBO Max, it makes sense that the streaming service would want some of their bigger names to start appearing in their shows. It’s uncertain if Gal Gadot will appear on a Wonder Girl series, if it does happen, but it doesn’t seem like it will be too long before we see some members of the Justice League on some of DC’s various HBO Max series.
