Morrison previously opened up about the third volume in an interview with DC Comics while discussing the second, saying: "I’ve already started on 3. Part of that was because, when we did the first one, it may have been the ONLY one. We hadn’t worked out the trilogy aspect of this yet. I thought at the time that maybe this would be my one shot at Wonder Woman. So, it’s quite complete in a certain way. But for the second one, we thought, 'Yeah, we can really do The Empire Strikes Back.'"
"This is obviously the second part of a trilogy. This is the part where the good guys go up against something that really tests their values and tests everything they stand for. And it ends on a note of slight defeat. She’s defeated, to a certain extent, and that rallies her into the next one, which obviously is a triumphant and victorious book. Yeah, once we realized it was a trilogy, we felt much more comfortable about the cliffhanger, about people being aware that there will definitely be a third volume. It even says, 'To be continued.'"
