"Wonder Woman" Solo Movie Updates

11 hours ago | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to reports, Warners have signed a female director, noted for work on "Breaking Bad" and "Game Of Thrones", to develop and helm a big screen "Wonder Woman" feature set for a 2017 release, starring Gal Gadot:

Michelle MacLaren will direct the "Wonder Woman" solo feature with director Zack Snyder introducing Gal Gadot as 'Wonder Woman' in "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice", then producing MacLaren's spin-off feature with Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder.

The original 'Wonder Woman' was created by William Moulton Marston, (aka 'Charles Moulton') who saw the educational potential of comic books and in 1941 was hired as a consultant for "National Periodicals/All-Winner Comics" (DC Comics). 

He created his female superhero, in a field dominated by male characters, inspired by his mistress Olive Byrne, who lived with him and his wife in a 'polygamous, polyamorous' relationship.

Wonder Woman: Michelle MacLaren signs up to direct

18 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

It's definite: Breaking Bad's Michelle MacLaren will be directing the standalone Wonder Woman movie...

Warner Bros has chosen who it wants to direct its upcoming standalone Wonder Woman film, and - as had been speculated - it's Michelle MacLaren who's got the job.

MacLaren is best known to date for some of her excellent work on the TV show Breaking Bad, a programme that she also served as an executive producer on. She's also directed for shows such as The Walking Dead and Game Of Thrones in recent years. Wonder Woman will mark her feature directing debut.

Gal Gadot will be playing the title role in the film, having debuted the character (or she will have done by then) in 2016's Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. MacLaren will need to have Wonder Woman ready for release on 23rd June 2017.

That gives her some time to work with the project's writers, »

24 November 2014 4:14 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Art by JPRart

Last week we learned that Michelle MacLaren was in talks to direct Wonder Woman for Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment. Today it has been made official! The deal is done, and I think she's a great choice! If you're not familiar with MacLaren's work, she has worked on high profile shows such as Breaking Bad, The X-Files, The Walking Dead, and Game of Thrones

Gal Gadot will reprise her role as Wonder Woman, who will first be introduced in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. There are no confirmed details on what the first Wonder Woman movie will be about, but there have been rumors that it will be set in the 1920s and be the first in a trilogy of standalone films. The report does say that the director's "deal culminates an on-and-off again dance with the Amazonian princess." So she will indeed be back to direct multiple films. »

Michelle MacLaren officially on board to direct ‘Wonder Woman’

24 November 2014 3:42 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Following DC’s media firestorm a few weeks back in which their entire superhero movie slate was announced up through 2020, though there was a lot to chew on, there were a few holes. The most notable was the absence of a director for the Wonder Woman movie starring Gal Gadot.

And after a few more weeks of speculation and Lexi Alexander saying she wasn’t interested, Michelle MacLaren, the Emmy winning director behind many white knuckle episodes of Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead, has officially signed on to direct Wonder Woman.

THR reported the news Monday with details that Charles Roven, Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder are all attached as producers as the film aims for a June 23, 2017 release date.

MacLaren is a great choice whether or not she’s a woman, but with so few tentpole projects such as this actually going into the hands of female directors, »

Michelle MacLaren confirmed to direct Wonder Woman movie

24 November 2014 3:30 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There has been speculation for the past few weeks to who would be directing the upcoming Wonder Woman movie starring Gal Gadot. For some time TV director Michelle MacLaren has been rumoured to be the top contender, although there were several other female directors said to be on the shortlist.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, MacLaren is now confirmed to develop and direct the movie for DC and Warner Bros. MacLaren has directed plenty of episodes of great television series including Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. This will actually be MacLaren’s film debut but with so many great shows and a variety means she will surely have enough experience to tackle this project.

Charles Roven, Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder are among those producing the movie. Gal Gadot will first be seen as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice before getting her »

'Wonder Woman' Movie Gets Director; Zack Snyder Will Produce

24 November 2014 3:21 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Bros. has finalized a deal with filmmaker Michelle MacLaren to develop and direct Wonder Woman, following a report from two weeks ago that the filmmaker was in early talks to take on the project.

Michelle MacLaren will work closely with the project's writers, who remain unnamed at this point, to craft the screenplay. Wonder Woman, played by Gal Gadot, will first be introduced in 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. No story details have been confirmed at this time, but we reported last month that the movie may be a prequel set in the 1920s, with half of the movie focusing on Amazonian factions vying for control of Paradise Island. The story will then shift to America in the 1920s, where a mysterious man takes Wonder Woman after he arrives on Paradise Island.

The studio has been searching for a director since this summer, with Warner Bros. also »

Michelle MacLaren Confirmed To Direct Wonder Woman

24 November 2014 3:20 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Great Hera! According to THR, Michelle MacLaren has officially signed on to direct Warner Brothers’ upcoming Wonder Woman film starring Gal Gadot. The director of some of the best episodes of Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead appeared on a shortlist for the coveted role last month, and went so far as to enter talks just two weeks ago. Now, she’ll be bringing DC’s flagship superheroine to the big screen.

MacLaren got the job over two other directors who met with the studio: The Babadook‘s Jennifer Kent, and Homeland‘s Lesli Linka Gatter. She won’t just direct the film, either, as she’s also been given the chance to assist the writers (who have yet to be announced) and develop the story as well. We still don’t know what that plot will entail, or how the film will fit into the larger DC Cinematic Universe, »

Michelle MacLaren Set To Helm Wonder Woman; Zack Snyder On Board As Producer

24 November 2014 2:10 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Just a couple weeks ago, two additional contenders reportedly met with Warner Bros. to potentially direct the long-awaited Wonder Woman movie, but now The Hollywood Reporter has learned that the initial frontrunner, Michelle MacLaren, has signed the dotted line. According to the trade's sources, she has been "on-and-off" with the studio since August, but was always considered the top pick thanks to her directing credits on certain episodes of The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones.  In addition to directing the DC Comics adaptation, MacLaren will also be working closely with unknown screenwriters to develop the script for the Amazon Princess. And Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder are on board as producers. THR also reckons that there was some pressure within Warner Bros. to hire a female director for the project, despite very few females having successfully tackled a project of this scale. »
