Gal Gadot has confirmed the fate of Wonder Woman in the new DC Universe.

In a recent interview, the Red Notice actress revealed that the franchise’s new CEOs, James Gunn, and Peter Safran have green-lit the third instalment in the female superhero film series.

"I love portraying Wonder Woman," Gadot told Comicbook.com. "It's so close to and dear to my heart. From what I heard from James and from Peter is that we're gonna develop a Wonder Woman 3 together."

The latest update comes after nearly a year it was reported that Petty Jenkins’ helmed Wonder Woman 3 was scrapped due to creative differences between the director and the DC’s top brass.

Gadot made her debut as the beloved superhero Diana Prince in 2016’s Batman v Superman, followed by the release of its titular origin film in 2017.

She also reprised her role in the 2020 sequel, Wonder Woman 1984 alongside Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, and appeared in both versions of Justice League.

Among the many changes made to DC under the leadership of James and Peter, Henry Cavill’s termination as Superman aka Clark Kent was a shocking one.

However, they recently confirmed his replacement is David Corenswet, who will make his debut as the Kyroptonian in the upcoming film, Superman: Legacy.

Reflecting on the decision, the Israeli actress raved: "I saw that they were testing, doing different screen tests, but I don't know who got it, but it seemed like everyone was super legit and talented and, like, great.”

"So I'm happy for them. It's such a huge take-on and it's such an exciting beginning to any actor, and I wish whoever it's going to be the best of luck and enjoy the ride," she added.
