Michelle MacLaren Exits WB’s WONDER WOMAN

A prolific television director Michelle MacLaren, who signed on to helm and develop Warner Bros.’ long-awaited live-action Wonder Woman adaptation, has reportedly left the project over “creative differences”.

Warner Bros. and Michelle MacLaren have decided not to move forward with plans to develop and direct Wonder Woman together,”

the studio said in a statement Monday afternoon. Meanwhile, BadassDigest‘s Devin Faraci has revealed several details regarding MacLaren’s ejection from the Gal Gadot‘s solo DC outing:

“MacLaren and Warner Bros couldn’t agree on anything – including what time period to set the movie.”

“MacLaren had some very particular visions for the film, visions that maybe would have alienated fandom. Although perhaps Diana having a tiger sidekick/pet she could talk with would have appealed to people more than I expect.”

Could Warner Bros.’ loss be Marvel’s gain because Marvel is most likely seeking a female director for Captain Marvel? I don’t blame Hydra…We’ll see.

Wonder Woman was set to be released on June 23rd, 2017 and there’s still plenty of time to get one of several scripts (one by Pan writer Jason Fuchs) in order and find a new director. The four actors are reportedly testing for the role of Steve Trevor, the love interest of Wonder Woman. It was rumored that Scott Eastwood – the son of Clint Eastwood – would be playing the character. Instead, the actor has been cast in the Suicide Squad movie.
