Last week, Warner Bros laid down the gauntlet by announcing their standalone Wonder Woman movie (in addition to the rest of their DC programming slate), and now they’re upping the ante. A recent article from The Hollywood Reporter said that “Warners also is opting for strong directors, tapping David Ayer (Fury) for Suicide Squad and seeking a female helmer for Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman.”
Makes a lot of sense, now doesn’t it. But who will they choose? The Internet has been buzzing with names like Michelle MacLaren, who directed several Game of Thrones episodes including “The Bear and the Maiden Fair”; The Hurt Locker’s Kathryn Bigelow; and Lexi Alexander, the sole female director of a superhero movie for Punisher War Zone. Ideally, WB will be well-served to find a director who can handle action and violence, while still bringing pathos (and hopefully some humor) to Diana for her standalone film.
Wonder Woman comes to theaters in 2017.
