Patty Jenkins to Direct WONDER WOMAN Author: Bill "Jett" Ramey (Follow @BATMANONFILM)

According to THR's HEAT VISION, Warner Bros. has hired Patty Jenkins (MONSTER) to direct WONDER WOMAN. She is replacing Michelle MacLaren who left the project over "creative differences." Ironically, Jenkins was on board to dirct THOR 2 (which became THOR: THE DARK WORLD) for Marvel, but left that project over - you guessed it - "creative differences."
This should calm fears that WB was against a woman director and/or that the studio wasn't allowing a filmmaker enough creative freedom. Perhaps the answer is as simple as Ms. MacLaren's take simply didn't jibe with Zack Snyder and WB's vision of the DCCU.
WONDER WOMAN is slated to bow in 2017. Charles Roven, Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder are producing. BATMAN v SUPERMAN's Gal Gadot will be reprising her role of Wonder Woman/Diana Prince in the film.
