The future of James Gunn’s started with some massive decisions as took over DCU as the Co-CEO. The Suicide Squad director decided to reboot the franchise so that he can have a blank canvas for himself, and he decided to fire Zack Snyder, Ben Affleck, and Zack Snyder from the DC Studios. However, Gal Gadot’s future as Wonder Woman in James Gunn’s DCU seems to remain uncertain.
The Knight and Day actress was supposed to reprise her role in the third sequel but it was canceled in late 2022, and it is unknown if we will see her in the future. Because newly appointed Co-CEOs who promised to give a better DCU did not mention any projects about the Amazonian princess in Chapter 1 of their rebooted DCU. Until Ben Affleck inadvertently did a plot reveal in the upcoming movie The Flash which features Gadot’s Wonder Woman.

Ben Affleck Ruins The Surprise in The Flash
The Gone Girl actor was a guest on the SmartLess podcast, where he was talking about his time as Batman in Zack Snyder’s DCEU. The actor explained that he finally pieced together to play his role of Batman despite playing it for so long.
“I finally figured out how to play the guy… I was like, ‘Hold on, am I– Is that– I quit, I know I quit, and I know came back, but I got it now.’ It’s like, you know when you do the audition, and you’re on your way home, you’re like, ’Ooh.’”
Ben Affleck explained that he does not want to give a spoiler from The Flash but there was a scene in the movie where he was saved by Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman. The Deep Water actor gave more key details about her cameo, where she saves him with the “Lasso of Truth,” which causes Batman to reveal his feeling about his life and work.
“I mean, I don’t wanna give a spoiler, but it was a scene where I get caught, I get saved by Wonder Woman during a conflagration with some bad guys. And she saves me by– I mean, I’m sure the spoiler, DC assassins are gonna get me, but…”
“She saves me with the Lasso of Truth. And so what happens is that Batman divulges some of his real feelings about his life and his work… I was like, ‘Wait a minute, I got it!’”
While the fans are going to see Ben Affleck as Batman for the final time, they are sadder because they were hoping to see some surprising cameos in Ezra Miller’s The Flash but the actor ruined their anticipation for the film.

No we’re working on getting Wonder Woman into more animation. I agree that there hasn’t been enough of her in that area and was one of the first things I brought up to the animation folks.
