It’s been two days since veteran television showrunner Michelle MacLaren reportedly left Warner Bros. long-awaited production of its forthcoming DCCU property, Wonder Woman, following her attachment to the film back in November last year. Alas, it was probably good that the studio stayed awake and in case things didn’t work out right away, and luckily, troubleshooting this one issue wasn’t so difficult.
Word from THR
states that Patty Jenkins
has been tapped to replace McLaren who departed the film citing “creative differences”. Jenkins
is best known for her work on her multi-award-winning 2003 debut crime pic, Monster
, and was once tappd to direct the 2013 release of Thor: The Dark World
herself before Terminator Genisys
helmer Alan Taylor took the chair. The film is eyeing a June 23, 2017
release with actress Gal Gadot
leading this, one of several appearances throughout Warner Bros. brewing DC Comics-based cinematic universe, including next year’s Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice
The news also comes as it appears rumors are now circulating that Marvel may be circling actress Angelina Jolie to direct the Carol Danvers-led version of Captan Marvel. That’s another story, of course, and indeed, it IS a week for superhero movie hype if there ever was, especially with five-seconds out of tomorrow being the most important five-seconds of your life if you’re a DC fan.
