Does 'Batman v Superman' Video Reveal Wonder Woman's Homeland?

10 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, we reported that Warner Bros.' highly-anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is shifting production to Deming, New Mexico, with crews spotted building what appeared to be a large structure. At the time, it was speculated that this could be either the Justice League's Hall of Justice, or possibly a massive lair for Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg). Today, we have our first look at the New Mexico set, thanks to aerial footage from local New Mexico news station Krqe, which could be used for Wonder Woman's (Gal Gadot) homeland Themyscira, a.k.a. Paradise Island.

The news station's report mentions that the New Mexico location will be used for "extraterrestrial terrain," which lends more credence to the Wonder Woman theory, although it isn't known if Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot is in town for the shoot. However, Henry Cavill (Superman/Clark Kent) has been spotted in the area, »

New Look At Batman v Superman New Mexico Set (Video)

21 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

  Anytime a big-budget Hollywood film like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice rolls into a small town you can expect the local news stations to cover the impact it has on the community. Last night, Krqe News 13 ran such a story. The video contains new aerial footage of the set, which looks quite a bit like Wonder Woman's Amazonian home of Themyscira (aka Paradise Island). There's also a nice bit about the Man of Steel dropping by a local restaurant and posing for photos with star-struck servers. That Henry Cavill seems to be just as much of a Superman in real life as he is on-screen. Am I right or am I right? Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice - Zack Snyder will direct. It's written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer. The film stars: Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent and Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne. »

"Wonder Woman" Solo Movie Updates

25 November 2014 5:41 AM, PST | 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.

10 Signs Warner Bros. Have No Clue About Batman V Superman

25 November 2014 4:15 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros. Pictures

It’s nearing the end of the year, which normally leads to everyone looking forward to the next. And while 2015 boasts some of the biggest movies ever – it will somehow contain Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Bond 24 and The Hungers Games: Mockingjay Part 2 – this time eyes are gazing further into the future.

That’s right – it’s only the end of 2014 and yet we’re already thinking of 2016, particularly with regard to Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, a film that’s enticing and depressing in equal measure.

When first announced at Comic-Con everyone got excited for Zack Snyder’s superhero showdown, instantly forgetting the lacklustre Man Of Steel, but, as time’s gone by, various developments have revealed a confused production that pushes the idea Warner Bros. really don’t have a clue what to do with their D.C. »

25 November 2014 3:22 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

The roster of actors who have played Batman on the big screen is a short one. Christian Bale knocked it out of the park as the Caped Crusader in Christopher Nolan's trilogy to the point that there were rumors Bale was a candidate for the role once again in Zack Snyder's Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. While that part eventually went to Ben Affleck, fans still clamored over the potential of having Nolan's Dark Knight in the shared DC Cinematic Universe. We are »

Christian Bale is "jealous" of Ben Affleck's Batman role

25 November 2014 1:51 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Christian Bale has admitted to being jealous of Ben Affleck's role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The Dark Knight Trilogy star said that he is finding it hard to let go of the iconic DC Comics part.

"I've got to admit initially, even though I felt that it was the right time to stop, there was always a bit of me going, 'Oh, go on... Let's do another'," Bale told Empire.

"So when I heard there was someone else doing it, there was a moment where I just stopped and stared into nothing for half an hour.

"But I'm 40. The fact that I'm jealous of someone else playing Batman... I think I should have gotten over it by now. I haven't spoken with Ben, but I emailed him offering bits of advice that I learned the hard way.

"I would imagine he is doing everything he can »

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, »

Michelle MacLaren Officially Set to Direct Wonder Woman

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, »

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 »
