"Cannot wait to see what you're cooking up," the fan wrote. "That being said the move to boot Cavill and Gadot (especially after they'd announced their return) doesn't inspire confidence."

"I'm not sure where you're getting that we 'booted' Gal," Gunn shot back.

In case you are wondering if you will ever see Gadot as the Amazonian warrior, Gadot's social media posts definitely haven't helped this ambiguity, with her writing on Instagram just days before Jenkins' 'Wonder Woman 3' exit that she's excited about the character's "next chapter." 
 
"On this day, a few years ago, was the first announcement that I was going to play Wonder Woman," Gadot wrote. "I've been so grateful for the opportunity to play such an incredible, iconic character, and more than anything I'm grateful for YOU. The fans. The most amazing, warm, loving fans in the world. I'm still pinching myself to see if I will wake up. Can't wait to share her next chapter with you."
