Sadly Michelle MacLaren has walked away from the new Wonder Woman movie she was hired to direct. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. have released a statement saying “Given creative differences, Warner Bros. and Michelle MacLaren have decided not to move forward with plans to develop and direct Wonder Woman together.” This is confirming that Michelle MacLaren has left the directing chair for the upcoming Wonder Woman movie. Warner Bros. have lost someone who has proved that she can adapt other source material. She has been credited as director for shows like “Breaking Bad” and “Game of Thrones.” There are no specifics yet as to what the creative differences were between Warner Bros. and MacLaren.
It is also not very clear if this will effect the movie’s release date of June 23, 2017. So far the release date will remain the same.
MacLaren was announced to direct the upcoming Wonder Woman movie back in November. Warner Bros. wanted to find a female director for the super heroine movie. They signed on MacLaren who would be working with Amazonian Princess Diana, played by Gal Gadot. Will Warner Bros. try to find another female director for the film or just someone who will get the job done, gender regardless? Only time will tell who will be the new director for the Wonder Woman movie.
Wonder Woman is expected to make an appearance in the upcoming “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” which will be released March 25, 2016. Fans will be able to get the sneak peek of the film adaptation of the widely popular super heroine. Wonder Woman will be the first female comic book movie. It only makes sense since she was the first comic book to have a female protagonist. It would be weird if it was anybody else besides the Amazon. Hopefully, Warner Bros. finds a new director soon.
