James Gunn Dispels Rumors Of Elizabeth Debicki As Wonder Woman

James Gunn CEO of DC Studios

Recent rumors regarding Elizabeth Debicki taking on the mantle of Wonder Woman have been dispelled by James Gunn, adding more intrigue to the future of the Amazonian warrior.

James Gunn, who has already found his Superman and Supergirl in David Corenswet and Milly Alcock respectively, took to social media to address the rumors about Debicki's involvement. On Threads, Gunn stated, 'This is coming from a site that’s just making up a bunch of stuff (I love working with Elizabeth but I’ve never even had this thought).' Debicki, known for her roles in Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Vol. 3, will not be stepping into the role of Wonder Woman, leaving fans to wonder who will be the next to wield the Lasso of Truth.

The DC Universe is undergoing a significant transformation under the guidance of Gunn and co-CEO Peter Safran, with fans eagerly awaiting updates on the casting of iconic characters. Among the most anticipated announcements is the casting of Wonder Woman, a role previously embodied by Gal Gadot with grace and strength.

The absence of a Wonder Woman solo movie in the initial lineup of DC Universe projects has raised questions about the character's status in the new franchise. While the planned Wonder Woman 3 was shelved following Gunn and Safran's takeover, the character's legacy is far from forgotten. The DC Universe will explore Wonder Woman's mythos through the Paradise Lost TV show, a prequel set before Diana's birth, and the Creature Commandos animated series, which will feature Circe, one of Wonder Woman's formidable foes.

For the DC Universe's revival to be complete, the role of Wonder Woman must be filled. With the roles of Superman and Supergirl filled, the eagerness for the new Wonder Woman's unveiling is unmistakable. Fans are curious to see how Gunn and Safran will reimagine the character for a new era, and who will step into the iconic role.

The direction of Wonder Woman's storyline is a topic of eager speculation as the DC Universe progresses. The superhero landscape is significantly enriched by the character's long-standing history and its role in championing female empowerment. The excitement for Wonder Woman's next cinematic outing, whether solo or within a group, is palpable.

Wonder Woman and Wonder Woman 1984 is currently available to stream on HBO Max.

Anticipation and speculation are high regarding who will be cast as Wonder Woman in the DC Universe. While rumors about Elizabeth Debicki have been quashed by James Gunn, the search for the next Amazonian warrior continues. As the DC Universe evolves under Gunn and Safran's leadership, fans are hopeful that Wonder Woman will once again inspire and captivate audiences worldwide.
