With the addition of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman to the cast of Zack Snyder’s increasingly cluttered Man Of Steel 2, Batman Vs Superman producer Wesley Coller revealed that there’s no plans for a long-overdue standalone film for the DC Comics superhero.

“We’re super excited to have her in the film,” Coller told M Live. “It will be a ton of fun, but at the same time, we’ve got to stay focused on the film we’re working on now.”

The producer did however reiterate the team’s commitment to doing right by the character.

“[My daughter’s] favourite book is this little Wonder Woman flip book,” he said. “It has the lasso, the invisible plane, the bracelets – every page has an image she’s just in awe with.

“And something that’s become a reality, being a dad with a new daughter, is that I have a special place in my heart for the idea of a strong, empowered female superhero being out there.”
