Breaking Bad Director Michelle MacLaren Will Helm Wonder Woman

DC fans are going to have plenty to look forward to over the next few years, with the company and Warner Bros announcing a massive slate of films all the way up Green Lantern ini 2020.

We've heard some casting news (like Jason Momoa as Aquaman) and that Zack Snyder will be back for a two-part Justice League melee but the rest of the films are starting to crew up, including Wonder Woman which is set for a 2017 release.

The lead role has already been filled by Gal Gadot, who will pop up first in 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and she's going to be taking her cues from the very talented Michelle MacLaren. You've definitely seen her name before as she's been working in TV since 2002 and has helmedmany top shows including The X Files, Camelot, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, The Leftovers and she's just finished on an ep of Better Call Saul.

With that kind of CV, on shows of massive scale, its about time she stepped up to features and they don't come much bigger than this. It's also great to see that D.C. managed to stick to their guns on hiring a female director for the gig, something which Marvel's current cinematic universe hasn't managed to do - though Monster director Patty Jenkins almost took on Thor 2 before splitting over 'creative differences'.

There was also Lexi Alexander's Punisher: War Zone. But better not to speak of it.

We don't have any plot details yet but we'll update when there's more info.

Wonder Woman will hit cinemas in the US on the 22nd of June 2017.
