The one thing DC has over Marvel is Wonder Woman- a character with so much potential that it’d be frustrating to see it fail. After months of speculation, the wait is finally over as Warner Brothers have confirmed the rumors. Michelle MacLauren will direct 2017’s Wonder Woman making her the first female director of a superhero movie. So, yeah, it’s kinda a big deal!!! MacLauren was talked about for having directed crucial episodes of Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, and The Walking Dead (for which she’s won several Emmy’s). As of right now (assuming she plays well on Batman V. Superman) Gal Gadot is set to play the iconic Amazonian warrior. No other news has been announced about the film. The movie will be the first to star a female superhero. DC beating Marvel to the punch is a major success and with MacLauren attached, it’s all the more triumphant.
