With (surprise surprise) Michelle MacLaren left the project over ‘creative differences’, Warner Bros. wasted no time in searching for her replacement and they found it in Director Patty Jenkins.
Jenkins wrote and directed 2003’s Monster, as well as high-profile TV series including The Killing and Entourage.
One thing the recent issues have highlighted is the lack of female directors at the helm of comic book films, a unique voice as such we believe goes unheard. I mean for example the best Punisher film to date was directed by Lexi Alexander, but she’s known to be vocal. A trait that arguably works for her as much as it works against her. Apparently in Hollywood you can’t be too vocal about anything meaningful it seems.
Now the question is whether Jenkins will play ball if her vision doesn’t correlate with the Studio’s plans for Wonder Woman. Jenkins herself has had a bit of comic book film controversy, after Marvel Execs kicked her to the curb and from directing Thor 2, over (you guessed it) “creative differences”.
