For the past 80 years, Wonder Woman has inspired young girls to stand strong and lead with confidence. To celebrate her legacy, Warner Bros. Discovery has unveiled a brand new statue in honor of the Princess of Themyscira.
The statue was revealed this morning at the Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood. Among the guests invited for the unveiling were Jim Lee, the Chief Creative Officer and Publisher for DC; Pam Lifford, President of Global Brands, Franchises and Experiences for Warner Bros. Discovery; and Patty Jenkins, director of the first two Wonder Woman films. The bronze statue stands at seven-and-a-half-feet tall and can be seen below:
Wonder Woman’s fate at Warner Bros. Discovery has been rocky the past few months following Jenkins’ exit from the franchise. However, following the announcement of brand new animated content at DC Studios and James Gunn leaving the door open for Gal Gadot to return as Wonder Woman, it seems as though the future of the character is as bright as its ever been.
The future of the DC Universe
James Gunn and Peter Safran told journalists that their vision for the DC Universe includes locked scripts, wiggle room and a unified storyline across film, teleivsion, animation and video game projects. The two explained that the DC Universe could bring back elements from previous DC regimes, meaning that their eight-to-year plan is not a full reboot.
Shazam! Fury of the Gods, The Flash, Blue Beetle and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom are currently in various stages of post-production at Warner Bros. Discovery, with all four DC Universe movies slated to hit theaters in 2023. Will the characters from those movies make appearances in the new DCU? Only Gunn and Safran know.
