Out of Hollywood Reporter, Michelle MacLaren has signed with Warner Bros., not only to direct the Wonder Woman film, but also to develop it. Rumors started a couple months ago that WB was looking to have a female director, those rumors then evolved into Michelle MacLaren, and now they are all confirmed.
It’s not fair to say that Michelle is the first female director to take on a comic book property, as Lexi Alexander directed “Punisher: War Zone” in 2008. However, this is the first big superhero film, happening in continuity, with a massive studio budget, under tremendous public scrutiny because the film/character comes with a lot of excitement and buzz. So this is a gigantic deal.
MacLaren will be directing Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, a role that will premiere in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, in 2016.
