Despite Gal Gadot's Recent Quotes, 'Wonder Woman 3' is Not in the Works at DC (Report)

Gal Gadot has been teasing plans for the future of Wonder Woman, but there are conflicting reports about her continued involvement in the DC film franchise.

The 38-year-old actress brought the iconic hero to life in several films, including solo outings in 2017 and 2020. A third solo movie was in the works with director Patty Jenkins. Reports suggested that it had stalled in December 2022.
