DC Studios Announces Wonder Woman Project Without Gal Gadot

Yesterday, DC Studios chiefs James Gunn and Peter Safran announced the first slate for the new DCU franchise where they unveiled ten projects across film and television that is going to be part of its first chapter titled "Gods and Monsters."

Prior to the announcement, fans are wondering about what their plans are for Wonder Woman, especially in the aftermath of the cancellation of Wonder Woman 3 and the uncertainty of Gal Gadot's future in the role, which still hasn't been solved even during this unveiling.

As reported by Deadline, Gunn and Safran confirmed that a Wonder Woman project is in the works as part of the DCU slate titled Paradise Lost, an HBO Max live-action prequel series that is set in Themyscira years before Diana Prince was born.

"It’s going to be a Games of Thrones-ish story about Themyscira, the home of the Amazons and the birthplace of Wonder Woman. This drama is really about the political intrigue behind the society of all women. How did that come about?" Safran said.

Gunn added, "What’s the beautiful truths and the ugly truths behind all of that and what’s the scheming like between all the power players in that society?"

However, the duo didn't provide any details regarding the key creatives that they hired to pen the project. Since it is a prequel, Gadot is not expected to participate in the series or have any involvement at all. She's also missing from any of the projects that were announced.

It is interesting to hear that the first Wonder Woman-related project under the new DCU will not involve the hero at all although it sounds like it will be part of its overarching arc. If the character does end up appearing later on, it would be curious to see if they'll bring back Gadot to play the role.
