Out of the DC movie Warner Bros. announced last week, inarguably one of the most anticipated is Wonder Woman, which at long last sees the release of the iconic superheroine’s first movie. Gal Gadot will star in this film after a supporting role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and she will go on to reprise the role in Justice League Part One and Part Two. Naturally, there has been much talk over what the creative team of Wonder Woman will be like, with many fans suggesting a female director for this project. And now, it looks like Warner Bros. is interested in just that.
The Hollywood Reporter has published a piece covering the dozens of superhero movies releasing over the next six years, and the trade drops a few interesting DC film tidbits. The most intriguing bit reveals that Warner Bros. is “seeking” a female director to tackle Wonder Woman. No specific names are provided, but with a release date set for June 23rd, 2017, a director will likely be locked down sooner than later.
THR also states that the DC movie slate is being overseen by production president Greg Silverman and “point person” Jon Berg, as well as input from DC Entertainment president Diane Nelson, chief creative officer Geoff Johns and director Zack Snyder. Additionally, Ray Fisher has signed a four-movie contract to play Cyborg; this would include Batman v Superman, both Justice League films and his own Cyborg spin-off. Finally, the site reaffirms that new standalone movies for Batman and Superman are in development.
Stay tuned for more news as we have it. Who would you like to see as the Wonder Woman director?
