At long last the Amazon Princess and the most famous super-heroine on the planet, Wonder Woman, is coming to the Big Screen! June 23, 2017 marks the date! As you may recall Gal Gadot (controversially) has been cast as Wonder Woman in the upcoming film Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Due to the success of Marvel’s Avengers, Warner Bros. has opted to fast track production on their own franchise of DC heroes and it seems Wonder Woman is the first to get her stand alone film.
Behind the scenes of Wonder Woman, Michelle MacLaren (Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones) is set to direct. Additionally, Warner Bros. was reportedly in negotiations with David Fuchs (Pan) to pen the script, though a later rumor claimed multiple screenwriters had been tapped for the same job. The studio announced it will be releasing two new films each year through 2020 whick will include films centering around Aquaman, Flash, Green Lantern, The Justice League; and in addition a reboot to the Batman franchise as well as more Man Of Steel sequels. It is high time Wonder Woman be given the cinematic justice she deserves.
