Wonder Woman 3: Lynda Carter Talks Canceled DCEU Sequel Movie

Legendary television star Lynda Carter believes that DC fans have to make their voices loud and clear to get Warner Bros. to make Wonder Woman 3 with Gal Gadot.

“I don’t think they want to do it unless there’s enough pressure from fans,” Carter said in an interview with 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.”

Carter became a worldwide superstar in the ’70s when she played Diana Prince in the Wonder Woman television series. The inaugural season, set during World War II, aired on ABC in 1975, while the remainder of the ’70s-era series aired on CBS from 1977 to 1979. Not only did Gadot consult with Carter for her performance during the making of Patty Jenkins‘ Wonder Woman in 2017 but the star and director also convinced the television icon to appear in a surprise appearance as Asteria in the sequel Wonder Woman 1984.

“We all embraced each other, and we’re very good friends,” Carter said. “We took the steam right out. ‘No, we love each other.’ ‘Oh, darn.’ Sharing that legacy with someone is wonderful.”

The cancellation of Wonder Woman 3

While the DCEU-set Wonder Woman earned strong praise from critics and the historic box office, Wonder Woman 1984 divided critics and failed to make a profit due to the HBO Max home release strategy. Despite Wonder Woman 3 being announced by Warner Bros. shortly after the sequel’s release with Jenkins and Gadot expected to return, the project was canceled after James Gunn and Peter Safran were appointed to run DC Studios.

“It’s not an easy task, what’s going on with DC,” Jenkins said. “James Gunn and Peter Safran have to follow their own heart into their own plans. So I don’t know the why of what they’re planning on doing or why, so I have sympathy for what a big job it is, and they have to follow their heart and do what they’re interested in, and do what they’ve got planned.”

DC Studios plans to move forward on the prequel series Paradise Lost for Max. Promoted as a political drama in the style of Game of Thrones set several years before the birth of Diana, the series will explore the Amazonians and their power struggle in Themyscira.

Paradise Lost does not have a release date.
