The DC Cinematic Universe suffered a blow today, as Breaking Bad director, Michelle MacLaren, previously attached to direct the big screen Wonder Woman movie, has left the project.
In a statement by Warner Bros., creative differences were cited as the cause of MacLaren’s departure. The studio is no doubt rapidly scrambling to find a replacement, since 2018’s DC Cinematic Universe releases, The Flash and Aquaman, are already circling their own directors, with offers made to Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (who are already writing the script for The Flash), and James Wan respectively. Despite MacLaren walking away however, Wonder Woman’s planned release date of June 23rd, 2017 remains unaffected.
Plot and character details, including the setting and the villain, are currently unknown for Wonder Woman. Fast and Furious series veteran, Gal Gadot has been cast as the Goddess of Truth however, and will debut the character in next year’s big screen release, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Gadot will also be playing Wonder Woman twice in 2017, as she’s also contracted to appear in crossover sequel, Justice League: Part One, which is currently scheduled for November 10th, 2017.
