Patty Jenkins Reveals She Did Not Leave Wonder Woman 3, Has Returned to Rogue Squadron

Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins has broken her silence over the cancellation of the third Wonder Woman movie. In a lengthy social media statement, Jenkins clarified that she did not walk away from the project, and seemingly confirms that Wonder Woman may not move forward at DC under the new leadership.

Furthermore, she suggests that she is back on board with Lucasfilms’ Rogue Squadron movie, though stops short of confirming a return for the film project.

In a statement on her Twitter account, Jenkins calls reports saying she walked away from Wonder Woman 3 as “attractive clickbait,” writing that “I never walked away. I was open to considering anything asked of me.”

However, it seems that under the new leadership and potential plans to wipe away the SnyderVerseWonder Woman 3 was always at risk of being pulled from the lineup. “It was my understanding there was nothing I could do to move anything forward at this time. DC is obviously buried in changes they are having to make, so I understand these decisions are difficult right now.”

Jenkins proceeds to give her thanks to Lynda Carter, who was being set up for a big screen return in Wonder Woman 3 as well as her star, Gal Gadot. “Gal is the greatest gift I have received in this whole journey. A cherished friend, inspiration, and sister. There are no words I can use to convey how magical she is.”

One interesting note Jenkins begins with is that she left the Rogue Squadron movie after it became evident that it could delay Wonder Woman 3. Disney has since removed Rogue Squadron from its calendar. However, Jenkins says Lucasfilm asked if she could return after Wonder Woman 3 to which she agreed to do so.

“They made a new deal with me. In fact, I am still on it [Rogue Squadron] and that project has been in active development ever since.” However, Jenkins says it’s still unclear if the film will still happen while development is underway.

DC is undergoing major changes as James Gunn and Peter Safran continue to iron out their plans for the company. While the future of the Snyderverse remains tenuous, Gunn recently revealed that Superman is the top priority for the new DC under his leadership.
