Wonder Woman 3
Speaking at DC FanDome, Patty Jenkins stated she must “think carefully” about what she “wants to show” in the next Wonder Woman movies as its “probably” her last.
We’re super excited about Wonder Woman 3. And Gal [Gadot] is so so bummed not to be here…but we are all three very excited about some exciting things coming up. [Wonder Woman 1984] gave me a chance to do a lot of things that I couldn’t accommodate in the first movie. I was so happy to tell the Wonder Woman origin story. It was almost her birth, but we really haven’t seen what she is capable of. It is exciting for me to show her at the peak of her strength. But it is also very important that she fights an internal struggle: she is a Goddess and tries to help humanity. She is not only someone who fights evil, she tries to show bad people how to improve. It’s an interesting dilemma. The next one is probably my last Wonder Woman movie so I have to put everything I want to show there. We have to think carefully.

A minute-long TV spot for The Batman remixes the latest trailer.
Deadline reports Kausar Mohammed, Wilder Yari, and Theo Germaine have joined the cast of the 4400 reboot at the CW. Mohammed will play Soraya, “an acknowledged sci-fi nerd” who “can’t grasp the bizarre possibilities that might be responsible for the return” of the 4400, while Yari is Jessica, “an agent with the DHS who is all business when she’s called in to work on the mystery.” Germaine has been vast as Noah, “one of the 4400 that mysteriously appeared on Belle Isle.”
Superman & Lois
Deadline also has word Djouliet Amara (Riverdale) has joined the cast of Superman & Lois’ second season as an undisclosed “new student at Smallville High whose past is riddled with secrets.” Warner Bros. also released a cute tour video of the set this past weekend at DC Fandome.

Barry gets some gold boots in a new season eight promo shot out of Fandome. Grant Gustin said he felt they were “the final element that’s been missing. I’ve loved all the versions of The Flash suit we’ve had on the show, but the suit we have now is the closest to the many iterations you see in the comic books — with the exception of those gold boots! I’ve always felt that those boots would be the final touch.”
Kathleen Robertson has also joined the cast of The Expanse’s sixth season as Rosenfeld Guoliang, “a cynic and a fierce believer in Belter independence who is a key member of insurgent leader Marco Inaros’ inner circle.” [Deadline]
