Reflecting on Peter Safran’s Game of Thrones reference, James Gunn shared to Comicbook, “This is a Game of Thrones-type story about the atmosphere of Paradise Island, home of the Amazons and the birthplace of Wonder Woman. And this involves all the darkness and drama and political intrigue behind this society of only women. It’s an origin story of, how did this society women come about? What does it mean? What are their politics like? What are their rules? Who’s in charge? What are all the games that they play with each other to get to the top? I think it’s a really exciting thing.”
Well, when Deadline asked Peter Safran about whether Paradise Island Lost will feature Gal Gadot or not, he said, “There’s no reasons why all the people you mentioned, couldn’t be part of the DCU, we just haven’t decided what the story is that we want to tell that incorporates Shazam or Aquaman.” This left fans questioning whether this would be the end of Gal Gadot’s journey with DC.
