Zack Snyder Reportedly Eyed To Direct Wonder Woman 3

Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman is still widely regarded as the best movie to ever come out of the DCEU, one that turned Gal Gadot into a superstar by putting her front and center in a World War I superhero epic that was packed full of hope, optimism and a couple of standout action sequences, with the emotional core of the story driven by the winning chemistry between Gadot and co-star Chris Pine.

Expectations were sky high for the sequel, then, and the buzz continued to rise steadily after Wonder Woman 1984 was subjected to countless delays, but when it finally arrived… it wasn’t great. It did draw in a massive amount of viewers on HBO Max, but reviews were mixed to put it lightly, with the frequent and very large plot holes coming in for particular criticism, not to mention the bizarre plot device that saw an innocent man’s consciousness banished to purgatory so Diana Prince and Steve Trevor could get it on.

Despite being greeted by a mixture of disappointment and mild backlash – although there were plenty of people who enjoyed it immensely – Wonder Woman 3 was announced just a couple of days later, with Gadot and Jenkins signed on to return. However, insider Grace Randolph has now claimed that some Warner Bros. execs are eyeing Zack Snyder to direct instead, which seems pretty unlikely to happen if we’re being honest.

After all, Jenkins has already inked a contract, so if she was to be dropped, then she’d have to be paid off, and after netting a reported $20 million for 1984, that would be an expensive move by the studio. Snyder hasn’t given any indication that he even plans to stick around the DCEU after Justice League, either, and as much as some folks disliked the most recent Wonder Woman movie, let’s not forget that when Snyder last tackled a female-driven effects-heavy fantasy, we got Sucker Punch.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
