We knew a solo Wonder Woman movie was likely to happen, but Warner Bros. hadn’t officially given director Michelle MacLaren the green light. Mainly because ideas for the script were still being tossed around like Lego Oscar statuettes.
However, we now have some wonderful news to report. Deadline has confirmed that filming for Wonder Woman will begin this fall, which fits perfectly with the scheduled June 23, 2017 release date.
As most of you know, Gal Gadot will take on the leading role. She’s actually expected to make her first appearance as the superhero in the 2016 film, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. And then after her solo film, she will appear in the first Justice League movie. In short, she’s going to be really busy the next few years.
As mentioned above, MacLaren will be directing the film. We trust her because she is one of the best directors on television. Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, and now Better Call Saul. Everyone wants to work with her.
We have high hopes for this film. Hopefully we’ll start receiving updates. If the report from Deadline is correct, things will start heating up very soon.[mashshare]
