Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman 3” is the latest Warner Bros. DC Studios project to be scrapped, according to a new report.
Sources allegedly told The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday that new DC movies bosses James Gunn and Peter Safran, as well as Warner Bros. Pictures bigshots, rejected Jenkins’ script, co-written with Geoff Johns, as it does not match their new — and developing — vision.
Jenkins directed and co-wrote “Wonder Woman” and “Wonder Woman 1984” starring Gal Gadot.
Insiders assured THR that costs aren’t a reason for the snub, even though the studio could save tens of millions by not moving forward with the third “Wonder Woman” installment.
These sources reportedly predicted Gadot’s paycheck would have been around $20 million, while Jenkins could have earned $12 million.
Interestingly, Gadot just tweeted her excitement for the since-abandoned film Tuesday.
“A few years ago it was announced that I was going to play Wonder Woman. I’ve been so grateful for the opportunity to play such an incredible, iconic character and more than anything I’m grateful for YOU. The fans. Can’t wait to share her next chapter with you,” she wrote.
Meanwhile, the controversial release of “The Flash” starring the troubled Ezra Miller has been bumped up a week to June 16.
Gunn and Safran are reportedly ironing out DCU’s 10-year plan ahead of next week’s planned meeting with Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav.
The Post has contacted reps for DC Films and Gadot for comment.
