If I remember correctly, Michelle Maclaren was the one who directed that one shocking, “Walking Dead” episode that I remember. That one episode when the Walking Dead cast had that big barn shootout and Carol’s daughter ended up being a walker.
Michelle also directed a few episodes for other iconic TV shows such as “Game of Thrones” and “Breaking Bad”. Looking at her filmography, I don’t think she ever did big budget films so I guess you can consider, “Wonder Woman” being her directorial debut for the big screen. She spent many years of her life working on TV and it must be amazing for her to get asked by Warner Bros. to helm the “Wonder Woman” standalone movie.
Gal Gadot will still star as Wonder Woman for the film as well.
I hope Michelle does a good job and makes us a good “Wonder Woman” movie. I think it’s finally time for female superheroes to get the spotlight.
I know Warner Bros. have been trying very hard to make a “Wonder Woman” big screen movie since 1996 but they never got it off the ground until now. I remember Joss Whedon was originally attached to write and direct “Wonder Woman” but later on he changed his mind and said no so the film didn’t happen.
Gal Gadot has a busy career up ahead of her. She’s gotta star in “Batman Vs. Superman”, then her “Wonder Woman” movie and then the upcoming “Justice League”.
I’m sure Michelle will make the “Wonder Woman” film fun and exciting. Looking forward to seeing what she’s gonna do with the film. Congrats to Michelle on a big opportunity.
