Despite the fact that Wonder Woman 1984 ended up being a pretty divisive and "underwhelming" film, it still performed surprisingly decently at the box office and on HBO Max given the current COVID-19 situation we've all been dealing with, and naturally, this opted the folks over at DC and Warner Bros. to immediately greenlight a third Wonder Woman film which would see both Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins return.
However, a new rumor suggests that Wonder Woman 3 could potentially lose Jenkins as director although previous reports have confirmed that she was set to helm the project. According to a new scoop from insider Grace Randolph, while Wonder Woman 3 is certainly happening, Justice League director Zack Snyder could end up replacing Jenkins. Randolph didn't go much into detail regarding Patty's possible firing from the sequel but she claims that
While the idea of Snyder helming the project sounds great and really promising, I feel like he'd end up turning down the project out of respect for his DCEU colleague and allow Jenkins to have the chance to finish her own proper Wonder Woman trilogy.

On the other hand, Gal Gadot's pregnancy might also play a major factor in the film being delayed but considering the fact that Gadot was able to finish filming the first Wonder Woman film all while she was 6 months pregnant, I don't see any reason why she couldn't fulfill her duties and pull of yet another "wonderful" feat.
Wonder Woman 3 is in active development.
