Lynda Carter Makes a Bold Claim About Wonder Woman 3 That James Gunn Must Address Soon to Avoid Controversy

As James Gunn is busy building his DCU, original Wonder Woman Lynda Carter makes some audacious remarks on the character’s future.

Gal Gadot might have replaced Lynda Carter as the iconic superhero Wonder Woman, but Carter will forever be remembered for the role. Known best for the role as well as her advocacy for many crucial causes, the actress and singer returned to the land of DC in Wonder Woman 2.

Needless to say, fans were elated to have her, even though it was Gadot who donned the lasso of truth. Slated to appear in a third part as well, the threequel has been long dead. And while there has been no news of the character in James Gunn’s version of DC, Carter made some bold claims about Diana Prince which James Gunn should address soon to avoid any controversy.

Lynda Carter starred as the DC superhero from 1976 to 1979. And it was her charismatic portrayal that made the character popular. While Gal Gadot took over years after in Zack Snyder’s DCEU, Carter returned as the warrior Asteria in Wonder Woman 1984 and was also slated to be a part of the threequel.

After much anticipation and rumors, the threequel to the Gadot-starrer flick has been dead since 2020, despite James Gunn apparently promising Gadot that she would be brought back someday (see Variety). And now while talking to Yahoo Entertainment, the former Diana Prince stated the following about the fate of Wonder Woman in DCU,


“I don’t think they want to do it unless there’s enough pressure from fans. I just don’t think they have the mind to do it.”

Even Petty Jenkins, the director of both Wonder Woman movies, seemed to have made similar claims in an old X post and more recently while on the Talking Pictures Podcast. While the new head of DC, James Gunn has not made any comments about Jenkins or Carter’s comments, he must soon to avoid any potential controversy regarding the character or its inclusion within the DCU.

Fans React To Lynda Carter’s Comments about Wonder Woman

Lynda Carter described Wonder Woman as a fan-favorite character and that the movies starring Gal Gadot were a great franchise. While it is true that the character is well-loved and fans appreciated Gadot’s portrayal, the sequel, Wonder Woman 1984, was a much-criticized feature (see Rotten Tomatoes).

And so after Carter’s comments went viral, fans, unlike how Carter would have wanted, seemed uninterested in the franchise or its now canceled threequel.

As the fans’ ‘uproar’ continues, James Gunn is busy rebooting the DCU. While there has been no announcement of the character making its way into his universe, a prequel series before the birth of Diana Prince is in the making titled Paradise Lost.

Meanwhile, Gadot’s Wonder Woman movies can be streamed on Max.
