The Wonder Woman film currently in development as part of the wider DC Cinematic Universe which began with Man of Steel has experienced a setback with the loss of its director Michelle MacLaren.
It is being reported that MacLaren has experienced “creative differences” and that herself, and Warner Bros. have agreed to discontinue their plans to develop and direct a Wonder Woman solo film together.
Wonder Woman would have been the feature film debut for MacLaren, whose previous works include directing episodes of Better Call Saul, The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, and Game of Thrones.
Wonder Woman with lead actress Gal Gadot is scheduled for a release in mid-2017, so it would appear there’s still time to meet that schedule if a replacement can be found in the short term.
Gadot will of course still make her first big screen appearance as Wonder Woman in next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, starring alongside Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill.
