Well that didn’t take very long.
Warner Bros. managed to fill the Wonder Woman director’s chair before it went cold. According to The Hollywood Reporter Patty Jenkins has stepped in just days after it was announced that Michelle MacLaren was leaving due to “creative differences”
Jenkins is best known for directing Charlize Theron to an Academy Award for her 2003 directorial debut, Monster.
This isn’t the first brush that Patty Jenkins has had with the superhero genre, you might recall that she was at one point attached to direct Marvel’s Thor 2.
DC was surely motivated to keep the momentum going on Wonder Woman as they currently have it slated for a 2017 release.
Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman will first be seen in the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, set for release on March 25, 2016.
I’m far less excited for Patty Jenkins than I was for Michelle MacLaren. MacLaren was responsible for some of the greatest episodes of the greatest show ever made, Breaking Bad. Jenkins is a nice choice, who is obviously a skilled director, just not as skilled as MacLaren.
