Patty Jenkins Reveals She’s Done Script For Wonder Woman 3. Wonder Woman opened in theaters in the summer of 2017 and became a huge box office success and a critical favourite. Much of the film’s praise was credited to Jenkins, which Warner Bros. led her to sign to direct the film’s sequel.
Originally slated for release in 2019, before being delayed multiple times due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Wonder Woman 1984 was released on HBO Max and in limited theaters in December 2020. The film received mixed to negative reviews, and for many it was a big step back from its predecessor. Wonder Woman 1984 was still a hit as it attracted more subscribers to sign up for HBO Max and was the best-selling movie of 2021 on home video. Jenkins had teased Wonder Woman 3 before Wonder Woman 1984 was released, but the film’s development has been pretty quiet, especially in regards to the Warner Bros. Discovery handling of many DC projects.
Matera Film Festival in Italy, Jenkins revealed last week that she had finished writing the final scene of Wonder Woman 3. Jenkins revealed she has a trilogy planned but is still thinking about what might happen next Wonder Woman 3, indicating that she would return for more sequels.

And then I find myself saying, ‘Oh my god, I don’t feel like doing three.’ And so, even now, I say, “That’s it,” because I always plan an arc of three movies. There’s a story that goes through these three different movies as a whole. But even now, I wrote the closing scene of Wonder last week. Woman 3 and I thought I might be interested to see what happens next So you’ll never know They asked us to think of ways to do more and it happens by accident But you’ll never know I I’ve got a lot of other movies that I’d like to do too.

What does Wonder Woman offer in the DCEU
Plot details related to Wonder Woman 3 were scarce, but star Gal Gadot did confirm that Lynda Carter was expected to return. Carter played Wonder Woman in the 1970s television series and had a cameo in the after-credits scene of Wonder Woman 1984 as Asteria, an ancient Amazon who stayed behind in the world of men so that her Amazon sister could escape to the island of Themyscira. While both previous Wonder Woman films were period pieces, it is believed Wonder Woman 3 will take place in the current DCEU after the events of Justice League.
Currently there is no release date for it Wonder Woman 3. It was originally believed that Jenkins would direct Wonder Woman 3 after Star Wars: Rogue Squadron but since that movie was recently removed from Disney’s release schedule, this could mean: Wonder Woman 3 is Jenkins’ next project. The earliest Wonder Woman 3 could open in 2024, arriving four years later Wonder Woman 1984 and seven years after the first film. Currently, the only DC movie to open that year is: Joker: Folie à Deux. While the future of the DCEU remains up in the air as Warner Bros. Discovery is trying to find new leadership for the franchise, it seems safe to say that Wonder Woman 3 is a high priority for the studio.
