Lynda Carter Says Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman 3 Will Only Happen Under One Condition

Former Wonder Woman Lynda Carter, who played the Amazonian warrior in the iconic 70s television show, thinks Wonder Woman 3 with Gal Gadot could possibly happen under one condition.

“I don’t think they want to do it unless there’s enough pressure from fans,” Carter told Yahoo Entertainment. “I just don’t think they have the mind to do it. And I don’t understand that, because it seems to me that Wonder Woman is different from other characters. She’s not just a superhero. Her whole thing is about peaceful solutions. She’s not aggressive to be aggressive. It’s a different story. It’s about inner strength, outer strength. I don’t know why they tabled it, because it’s a great franchise.”

She is probably referring to a “Restore the Snyderverse” type online fan campaign to get Wonder Woman 3 going, which clearly won’t work with the new current DC regime. Even the previous regime under WarnerMedia, regrets the $75 million dollar decision to make Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

Wonder Woman 3 from director Patty Jenkins which would have stared Gal Gadot, was canceled in December 2022 amid DC Studios’ overhaul. The project “was really interesting, wonderful and about something important,” Carter added.

“Not just your typical thing. But they don’t want anyone else to make it,” Carter said.

Carter portrayed Wonder Woman on television from 1975 to 1979. As the Miss World USA 1972 winner, she captivated a generation with her golden Lasso of Truth as the iconic heroine. When Jenkins rebooted the franchise for film in 2017 with Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, she consulted Carter, having been a longtime fan.

Carter made a cameo as the warrior Asteria in the 2020 sequel Wonder Woman 1984. She was also set to appear in Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 3 before it was canceled.

Despite the controversial nature of Wonder Woman 1984, the first Wonder Woman by Patty Jenkins is widely regarded as one of the best DC Extended Universe movies. 

James Gunn and Peter Safran now in charge of DC’s Studios which houses film, television and animations efforts under the new banner at Warner Bros. Discovery, bringing the company’s comic book-related assets under one silo, like their competitor Marvel Studios. Gunn is said to be focusing on the creative direction of the DCU while Safran is handling things that are related to business and production.
