Michelle MacLaren's 'Wonder Woman' Movie Picks Up 'Pan' Scribe
After a whole slew of Marvel news yesterday arriving with Benedict Cumberbatch officially announced as Doctor Strange, and confirmation that Ryan Reynolds would play Deadpool in 20th Century Fox's adaptation of the meta anti-hero comic book, it's time for the DC Comics side of things to get an update. THR reports that the developing Wonder Woman movie has landed a writer. Jason Fuchs, the man behind Joe Wright's fantasy adaptation Pan (watch the first trailer with Hugh Jackman right here), has entered talks to script the movie set up at Warner Bros. Pictures and slated for release on July 17th, 2017.
Recently hired director Michelle MacLaren will work with Fuchs on the script for the film as she develops the first big screen adventure for the iconic female superhero, played by Fast & Furious franchise star Gal Gadot. Of course, the character is already slated to appear in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice before she gets her own movie and eventually becomes part of Justice League. This will be an important movie for Warner Bros. to stick the landing on, as strong female characters are all the rage right now, and Wonder Woman has quite a big fanbase as one of the classic superheroes who has been around for decades.
