Rumors swirl as new potential Wonder Woman casting sparks fan excitement, while Gal Gadot's status remains uncertain. DC's cinematic future is in flux.
On Wonder Woman Day, the DC Studios co-head James Gunn stirred up excitement with an Instagram post that's causing quite a commotion among fans. While the picture in the post fuels speculation about the future of the Wonder Woman franchise under Gunn and his partner Peter Safran, it's a comment from actress Eiza Gonzalez that has followers wondering if Gal Gadot has been officially replaced.
Eiza Gonzalez's comment on James Gunn's post, "This image is the one," sent fans into a frenzy, igniting rumors about her possibly taking over the iconic role. The picture that sparked all this buzz showcases a different side of Wonder Woman, one that Patty Jenkins' previous live-action films haven't fully explored – a battle-hardened Diana Prince, drenched in blood, adorned in golden battle armor, and wielding a sharp and bloody sword. She looks ready to take on any opponent. With the fan community buzzing, the question on everyone's mind is whether action star Eiza Gonzalez will step into the role or if Gal Gadot will return for another round.
Eiza Gonzalez has now become a top contender in the eyes of fans. With her impressive track record in films like "Bloodshot," "Machete," and "Alita: Battle Angel," it's no wonder why fans are eager to see her don Wonder Woman's iconic attire. While nothing is set in stone, the drama surrounding the potential third Wonder Woman film has been making waves for months.
The Wonder Woman casting saga took an unexpected turn. Gal Gadot hinted at her remaining in the franchise by making comments suggesting that both James Gunn and Peter Safran had approached her for the next installment. However, the DC Studios co-heads swiftly debunked Gadot's words, clarifying that there are currently no plans for another Wonder Woman movie. It was also reported that the DCEU's Justice League cast will not return in Gunn's DC Universe as their characters. This back-and-forth left DC fans puzzled and conflicted, as many were hoping to see Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman receive the trilogy treatment.
Eiza Gonzalez potentially stepping into the role of Wonder Woman would be another decision that could divide the fan base. In the nearly one year since James Gunn and Peter Safran assumed control of DC Studios, fans have witnessed a series of surprising developments that have challenged their perceptions of beloved characters. If Eiza Gonzalez were to be cast as the next Wonder Woman, it could further stir the pot of controversy.
While the prospect of Eiza Gonzalez becoming the next Wonder Woman is thrilling, the likelihood of a new film entering the DC roster anytime soon appears slim. With Gal Gadot still expressing interest in the character, the results of this casting drama remain uncertain.
