DC and Warner Bros. have reportedly canceled Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman 3 as the studio undergoes a shift in leadership.

The third installment in the Wonder Woman movie series was in development and was set to be released sometime in 2021 or 2022. It was supposed to feature Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Kristen Wiig as Barbara Ann Minerva/Cheetah, Pedro Pascal as Maxwell Lord, and Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the film was postponed.
