Wonder Woman movie loses Breaking Bad director over “creative differences”

Michelle MacLaren, whose credits include Better Call Saul, Game of Thrones and The X-Files, will no longer helm the DC Comics' superhero project


DC Comics’ Wonder Woman has lost its director Michelle MacLaren. The Canadian, who was hired by Warner Bros in November, has exited the project because of “creative differences.”


There are few details on the circumstances surrounding MacLaren’s split from the studio, but Warner Bros have released a statement confirming: “Given creative differences, Warner Bros. and Michelle MacLaren have decided not to move forward with plans to develop and direct Wonder Woman together.”

MacLaren is an experienced TV showrunner, whose impressive CV includes Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Better Call Saul, Game of Thrones and The X-Files. Wonder Woman was to be her movie directorial debut. 

Israeli star Gal Gadot remains attached to the project. She will debut as Wonder Woman in upcoming superhero flick Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice before starring in her own film. 


Wonder Woman is currently tipped for release in 2017
