The future of the DC Universe is moving into new territory as DC Studios co-CEOs James Gunn and Peter Safran have announced plans for the first ten projects on their list. The duo’s plans for the franchise are particularly interesting, as Gunn has made it clear that some existing roles within the franchise will be recast, while others will continue to be played by the same actors. Two big stars of the current crop of movies whose future is currently unknown are Wonder woman star Gal Gadot and The flash star Ezra Miller, and there’s been a lot of speculation about whether they could both return in a potential sequel in this new DCU or otherwise.
In a recent Instagram commentGunn claims that he and Safran have already fired Gadot and Miller, indicating that’s not quite the case.
Will Gal Gadot be recast as Wonder Woman?
At this point, Gadot’s future in the role is currently a mystery – especially since Superman and Batman, the other two characters who are part of DC’s Trinity alongside Wonde Woman, will be recast in the future. With Patty Jenkins’ pitch in front Wonder Woman 3 not moving forward in the studio now, and “Chapter 1” of Gunn and Safran’s stories, including a Themyscira prequel series titled lost paradiseit will be interesting to see if Gadot sticks around or not.
“On this day, a few years ago, it was first announced that I would be playing Wonder Woman,” Gadot wrote on Instagram late last year. “I’ve been so grateful for the chance to play such an incredible, iconic character and most of all I’m grateful to YOU. The fans. The most amazing, warm, loving fans in the world. I’m still pinching myself to see if I wake up. I can’t wait to share her next chapter with you.”
Will Ezra Miller be recast as The Flash?
Miller’s tenure as The Flash has already been the subject of much speculation, especially amid the actor’s real-life controversies and recent lawsuit. Reports are conflicting as to whether Warner Bros. Whether or not Discovery wants to keep Miller in the role after this summer’s release The flash movie, and Gunn and Safran have indicated that decision will be made at a later date.
“The flash was fucking amazing,” Gunn recently revealed. “It’s one of the best superhero movies I’ve ever seen. Andy Muschietti did a great job and I’m really happy for everyone to see it.”
