Gal Gadot’s future as Wonder Woman remains uncertain

With the new DCU set to include its own version of Batman and Superman, fans have been wondering whether Wonder Woman will be getting the same treatment or not. Even though Gal Gadot reprised her iconic role in Shazam! Fury of the Gods, following its poor performance at the box office, even Zachary Levi’s future in the DCU looks uncertain.

Considering James Gunn’s previous comments about the future of the character in the DC universe, where he expressed that they’re looking for possible voice actors, who can play the character in real life. It does seem that Gunn is moving forward from the original Trinity and Gadot’s future as Wonder Woman might not be much bright at the moment. James Gunn stated,
