Just yesterday, we brought you the news that Game of Thrones helmer Michelle MacLaren had shot to the top of Warner Bros.’ list of potential filmmakers to direct Wonder Woman. Well, according to The Hollywood Reporter, two more female directors have joined the running for the gig, though the report also confirms that the studio “isn’t married to the idea of a female director.”
Regardless, those two names are Homeland producer-slash-director Lesli Linka Glatter and The Badabook‘s Jennifer Kent, with each meeting with Warner Bros. over the past couple of weeks. Interestingly, THR states that while pegging down a director for Wonder Woman is the main priority right now, it’s understood that the company is also sending out the proverbial feelers for the numerous other projects cramming up the pipeline.
So, even if Glatter or Kent or even MacLaren don’t land the gig overseeing the Amazon Warrior, it could well be that either director could return to the superhero genre for WB further down the line.
Circling back to those newcomers, though, and there’s no doubting Kent and Glatter’s experience in the field. In fact, the latter has shepherded a tenacious, damaged and, ultimately, resilient character to the small screen in Homeland‘s Carrie Mathison, so we’re hoping that the talented filmmaker remains high on Warner Bros’ rader, even if she doesn’t get the Wonder Woman gig.
Whatever the outcome behind the scenes, Gal Gadot will have her solo outing as Wonder Woman when the film arrives on June 23rd, 2017.
