My divorce will finalize in 2018. Can I do joint without consent from my wife and amend it if she complains? She never filed tax, and I don't think she will find out.

You cannot legally file Joint without her consent. Don't even try.

Get it written into the divorce decree that you will file a joint 2017 return but don't try to pull a fast one as that almost always backfires on you.
