As the future of the DC Universe goes through some fundamental changes, it appears that one of next year's four DC films has cut a cameo featuring Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.

Since James Gunn and Peter Safran took their positions as DC Studios co-CEOs, fans have seen some major changes to what the DCU will be moving forward. This includes a number of cancelations for movies that were in development while reports indicate that the duo may start from ground zero and recast the company’s core Justice League heroes.

One of the first movies to meet the chopping block was Gal Gadot and Patty JenkinsWonder Woman 3, with Jenkins noting that there was nothing she could do about the situation, as Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD) changed its strategy for the DCU.

Now, a new report has seemingly indicated that Gadot's time with DC may be over even more quickly than expected, with her upcoming cameo being removed in post-production.

Gal Gadot Reportedly Cut from The Flash

The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD) has cut Gal Gadot's appearance as Wonder Woman from 2023's The Flash.

After making the decision not to go forward with Gadot and Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman 3, the studio removed her small role from The Flash along with another cameo from Henry Cavill's Superman.

However, following THR's report, insider KC Walsh quickly took to Twitter to refute the alleged removal, stating that Gadot's heroine is still set to appear in June's The Flash:

"Gal Gadot’s [appearance] has not been removed"

Will Gal Gadot Appear in The Flash?

Set photos from June 2021 revealed an image of Gadot's Diana Prince plastered on the side of a bus in Central City for an advertisement, although her Flash role seemed to be bigger than just a single photo of Wonder Woman. But according to this report, it seems that she may not be a part of the film in any form whatsoever, as the entire fabric of the DC Universe goes through such extensive changes.

It's still unclear exactly how she would have fit into the movie, which is still set to open up the DC Multiverse with heroes like Michael Keaton's Batman taking the spotlight. This also would have been her first appearance in a DC movie since 2020's Wonder Woman 1984, which now appears to be potentially her final time playing the role in any capacity.

With six months still remaining until The Flash releases in theaters, there could still be some huge changes to the story behind the scenes thanks to DC's new management and star Ezra Miller's ongoing legal troubles. This only adds more questions for Gadot's future as a whole as well, which will likely be discussed in more detail over the coming weeks and months.

The Flash will debut in theaters on June 16, 2023.
