Gal’s ‘Wonder Woman’ return proves DCEU isn’t rebooting

Published : 11 Aug 2022 08:20 PM

The first Wonder Woman movie was one of the biggest successes yet for the DC Extended Universe, with Gal Gadot's take on Princess Diana being incredibly popular. Nevertheless, her future in the role has been somewhat suspect, with many not knowing where the character will appear next. Thankfully, it would seem that the Amazon will be in several DCEU projects coming down the pipeline.

Gadot is apparently involved in numerous future DC projects, which will excite her fans. But it also seemingly confirms that, even under David Zaslav's rule, the DCEU will not get rebooted anytime soon. Here's how Diana's return could mean the same for some of her fellow heroes.

As mentioned, for as rocky as the history of the DCEU has been, 2017's Wonder Woman was an undisputed success story. Succeeding critically and financially, the movie was the only real win for DC's fledgling shared universe for a while. The character quickly catapulted to stardom that she hadn't enjoyed since the heyday of Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman TV series while showing the potential of DC's movies.

That also meant that, since she was one of the least controversial aspects of the DCEU, Wonder Woman would show up somewhere in future movies. At the same time, many were unsure how that would take place. It seemed for the longest that The Flash would almost completely reboot the movie universe, erasing its most controversial films from history and starting new. That meant that the continuity of any movie, including Wonder Woman, would be highly suspect. Thankfully for fans of Patty Jenkins' films, Diana's big screen features are likely staying where they are in the DCEU's canon. -CBR
