@MuseZack I would do horrible things to see Michelle MacLaren direct a movie (specifically Wonder Woman). It’ll never happen, though.

Some times, I really love being wrong. I posted that tweet back in December before all the announcements about the future of the DC film universe. Now, as Warner Bros. continues to ramp up their plans for the Wonder Woman movie, it looks like Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, and The Walking Dead director Michelle MacLaren is the rumored frontrunner for the project. And for good reason – MacLaren has made a name for herself directing incredibly cinematic episodes of those shows. I first noticed her work on Breaking Bad, specifically Season 3’s “One Minute,” whose ending left me shaken and provided one of the series’ greatest moments.
MacLaren is one of those rare directors were I’ll watch other shows I normally wouldn’t watch, just to see her work. I’ve been eager to see her make the transition to the silver screen for quite a while. Wonder Woman deserves to have a female director that’s just as badass as the character herself and MacLaren is a slamdunk choice. Let’s hope it happens.
Starring Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, the film is set to release on June 23, 2017.
