Instead of the film being unusually canceled, it was instead reported that director and co-writer Patty Jenkins abandoned the project after a conflict with the studio. According to one of The Wrap’s sources, Jenkins is not interested in changing her voice for the film and that the co-chairs and CEOs of Warner Bros. Film Group as Michael De Luca and Pamela Abdy “don’t understand her, don’t understand the character, don’t understand the character arc and don’t understand what Jenkins is trying to do.” Jenkins is said to have sent De Luca an email that included a link to the Wikipedia page for the “character arc”.
Following news earlier this week that the project appeared to be dead, DC Studios co-CEO James Gunn was on Twitter to explain the “tough environment” and “the inevitable transition as we move into telling a cohesive story across film, TV, animation, and games.”
The Wrap also points out that, reportedly, Wonder Woman 3 was at one point on the list of projects that “no one can mess with” as DC Studios moved to create a shared universe. Gunn and his other co-CEO, Peter Safran, are said to be unrelated to Wonder Woman 3’s decision or how it was previously handled.
