The "Wonder Woman" movie may get a dose of girl power behind the lens: Variety reports that director Michelle MacLaren is in talks to helm the superhero flick.
MacLaren has made a name for herself in fanboy and -girl circles in recent years, directing and producing episodes of popular and critically-acclaimed shows such as "Breaking Bad," "Game of Thrones," and "The Walking Dead." And according to sources, Variety writes that Warner Bros. exec Greg Silverman "has always been a fan of MacLaren's work and had been trying for awhile to find the right project for her."
The "Wonder Woman" film would certainly be a high-profile project for MacLaren's feature directorial debut, and could potentially line the producer-director up for another WB superhero flick down the line. Wonder Woman is already set to make her big screen debut in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," and will then get her own standalone film, in addition to appearing in two other Justice League movies.
Stay tuned to see if/when MacLaren's involvement in the project is confirmed. "Wonder Woman," starring Gal Gadot, is tentatively scheduled to arrive in theaters on June 23, 2017.
