Since Wonder Woman 1984 was released there is a lot of mixed feeling from people after watching Wonder Woman 1984, either you enjoyed it for what it is or hated the sequel with a passion. One thing I believe is everyone agrees Wonder Woman 84 is not a good film. I did enjoy the sequel but I knew it is not a good film. I have watched the sequel a second time with family to get a better take of the sequel. Honestly watching it a second time Wonder Woman 84 gets worse than the first viewing. Before I talk about why Zack Snyder should be brought back to the Wonder Woman film franchise. I am not campaigning for Zack Snyder’s the Snyderverse, Justice League 2, or bring back the old DCEU. No that is not what my opinion article is about.
Why Zack Snyder should be involved with the Wonder Woman film franchise again? For one he casted Gal Gadot in the role not Patty Jenkins, and has always had a great eye for casting characters. Other than nailing casting Henry Cavil as Superman, and Jason Momoa as Aquaman. Gal Gadot was his best casting choice in his DC Films. His concept or idea of what Wonder Woman should be from his narrative is seen in from Gal Gadot in her battle scenes against Doomsday from Batman v. Superman. Zack show case how much of a bad mother fucker warrior Wonder Woman should be. She loves to battle someone or likes a good fight. She is a hero in her own right but she is no Superman like Patty and Geoff tried to make her in Wonder Woman 84. Yes she loves to help people and save people too, but she thinks realistic. She is not very optimistic like Superman or a pessimist like Batman, but she see the world like it is and is not afraid to do what she thinks is the right move to make the world a better place.
I think people forget that Zack Snyder was involved in the story for the first Wonder Woman film as he is credit. However it is not clear how much he was involved in behind the scenes but the Wonder Woman we see in BvS was carried into her first film, and I am sure we will see the same Wonder Woman we all love in his cut of his Justice League film. If Walter Hamada is a smart man he should meet with Snyder to discuse getting involved again with Wonder Woman. He recently shared a new photo of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman from his time with working on BvS.

I might be reading to much into this tweet and another one of his tweet of Wonder Woman from his account from his Justice League film, because I am sure he has heard from the negative uproar from fans thoughts on her sequel an he is pitching some ideas or direction he would like to do with Wonder Woman to the fans if he had a chance get back involve with Wonder Woman. Fans have loved what he has shown so far and want that version of Wonder Woman than the one in her sequel. I do believe if he was asked to be involved creatively in Wonder Woman 3 in some capacity I think he would be a yes to return to the franchise. Patty Jenkins is a good director but she doesn’t get Wonder Woman as we seen in her sequel which Patty Jenkins had a lot of say or control in that film than she did in Wonder Woman. I think someone over at Warner Brothers should reevaluate removing creative control from her because she is close to ruining the Wonder Woman franchise.
As of right now fans do not trust Patty’s creativity for Wonder Woman after her sequel which she had last say over everything. I know they sign her to direct a third Wonder Woman film but after what we have seen from Wonder Woman 84. She should just be hired as the director and stay out of the story creativity for the 3rd film. They should bring in Zack Snyder and put him in that Chris Nolan role to oversee Wonder Woman 3 as a producer and be part of the story for her third film. Hopefully someone from Warner Brothers is reading the reviews and hearing from fans because Wonder Woman 84 went backwards after taking big steps from BvS to Wonder Woman 1.
