Michelle MacLaren departs Wonder Woman
Having recently joined the Wonder Woman production as director, we're sad to report that Michelle MacLaren is no longer attached to the film. This is a huge setback for what was set to be one of the most female-centric comic book adaptations so far and we can only hope that someone without a penis is enlisted to continue bringing the character to the big screen.
There have been some accusations that studio execs felt there was too strong a feminist edge to the way the film was progressing (seriously, do they know ANYTHING about the character?) and this led to the creative differences that are being officially blamed.
There is some suggestion that MacLaren may yet get to direct a female superhero though - there are rumours that she has been in talks with Marvel for their upcoming Captain Marvel.
