Michelle MacLaren to shoot Wonder Woman starring Gal Gadot this fall

02.23.2015

Wonder Woman Michelle MacLaren Gal Gadot

In an article about Gal Gadot being in talks for the upcoming Greg Mottola-directed comedy KEEPING UP WITH THE JONESES starring Zach Galifianakis and Jon Hamm, Deadline revealed that production on WONDER WOMAN will start this fall. There aren't any other new details on the project, but we do know Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones director Michelle MacLaren will helm the comic book movie from a script by Jason Fuchs or (if you believe the recent rumor) from one of six scripts being penned by six different writers.

Like Jason Momoa's Aquaman, Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman will be introduced in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE before getting a solo movie, and last year we learned Wonder Woman will have a fair amount of screen time in the Zack Snyder film. I'm still not too high on Gadot as Princess Diana and I think there are better options out there. But what's done is done, and I'm willing to give the actress the chance to prove herself.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE opens on March 25, 2016, and WONDER WOMAN will be released on June 23, 2017.

Thats a good director for WW, a lot better than some other names that were mentioned. If she brings a touch of Game of Thrones to it it wouldn't hurt at all.

She really NEEDS to be good for their CU to work. If they're going to give her a lot of screen time in BvS they're blowing up her character importance. You can't walk away from that if you're building up toward Justice League.

Personally, was rooting for Jaimie Alexander but oh well, I'm easy and I'll give just about anyone a chance. I do like the idea behind using Gadot what with her foreign/exotic look and have enjoyed her roles in the Fast Furious movies (I have no shame in admitting I'm easy to please) so here's to hoping.

Hopefully if this does well financially and critically, Marvel will finally be motivated in giving us a solo Black Widow film.

Why they can't make a Shield movie with her taking the lead role...I'll never know. Heck, throw Renner in it too... and to make him feel bad... give him a supporting... supporting role. No, but seriously, just a straight forward action movie - my preference would be something like the Bourne movies (perhaps to put more comedic emphasis on the short end of the stick Renner's been given).

Well, not really down are they? Also, I'm still a little confused by the synopsis I read on one of the Marvel movies recently (forgot which one) which suggested Shield were back. In any case, could always be a prequel about Barton and Widow.

I suspect Avengers 3 is going to focus on characters that haven't had their own movie yet (Widow, Hawkeye, Falcon, Hulk, etc.).

Probably one of the few who is willing to give Gadot a chance on these films. It really all depends on how she does with Batman vs. Superman, but I can honestly say I am rooting for her.

Everybody seems to be hung up on Gal not having WW breast. I was more concern about her being believable and strong enough to be the character. Alot is banking on BvS, and so far im neither excited or let down by what little we know about this film. Im open.
