The dreaded “creative differences” bug has struck again. Warner Bros’ said today that Wonder Woman director Michelle MacLaren has left the high-profile project. “Given creative differences, Warner Bros. and Michelle MacLaren have decided not to move forward with plans to develop and direct Wonder Woman together,” the studio said in a statement. The veteran TV helmer of such shows as Better Call Saul, Game Of Thrones, The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad was to have made her feature directing debut on the tentpole starring Gal Gadot. The film will continue Warners’ DC superhero universe after Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice and David Ayer’s Suicide Squad in 2016, though no release date is set. Now there’s an open director’s chair on a studio superhero film. Don’t expect it to remain unoccupied for long.
