Variety reports that Michelle MacLaren, frequent episode director on Game of Thrones, has been confirmed at the helm of Wonder Woman.
MacLaren had been rumored as the front-runner for some time. Plot details have still not been released, although producer Charles Roven recently revealed plans for the first of a trilogy to be set in the 1920s, with Princess Diana venturing into Man’s World after a male fighter pilot — not Steve Trevor — ends up on the island of Themyscira and upends the way of life for the Amazons.
Gal Gadot, who will make her first appearance as Wonder Woman in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, had reportedly signed a three-picture deal with Warner Brothers. Many speculated that it would include Batman v. Superman, Justice League, and her solo film. If the trilogy is part of the plan, it’s likely Gadot actually has a multi-picture deal for six films.
Wonder Woman is scheduled to be released on June 23, 2017.
