    Warner Bros. Pictures has found the director for its forthcoming Wonder Woman film. The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Breaking Bad andWalking Dead director Michelle MacLaren will make her big screen directorial debut by bringing the DC Comics superhero to life.

    MacLaren’s other credits include directing episodes of Game of Thrones, The Leftovers, and Better Call Saul, as well as the forthcoming spinoff of Breaking Bad. She also produced The X-Files‘ final two seasons and Breaking Bad.

    Gal Gadot will make her first appearance as the Princess of Themyscira in Zack Snyder’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice on March 26th, 2016. MacLaren will develop the character for her own solo adventure, set for June 23rd in 2017, alongside Charles Roven with Snyder and his wife Deborah producing. Gadot will then likely reprise the role in 2017’s Justice League Part One and Part Two the following year.

    Though this is far from official, rumor has it Warner/DC is planning a trilogy for Wonder Woman. The first film would be set in the 1920s and detail the Amazonians’ first meeting with the outside world, including Wonder Woman’s confrontation with an American society not so keen on equal rights. The sequel would move into World War II and Wonder Woman wouldn’t reach present day until the third film, meaning these films would all be prequels to her Dawn of Justice and Justice League appearances. Again, this is nothing more than rumor as of now.
