AceShowbiz - Warner Bros. continues to show commitment to diversity. After announcing the first live-action female solo superhero film "Wonder Woman" and the first African-American superhero movie "Cyborg", now the studio is reportedly searching for a female director for the former.
Fans believe a female director would be a fitting choice to bring Gal Gadot's heroine character to the big screen and they have been campaigning to get WB's attention since its DC Comics movie slate. Now a report suggests studio is thinking the same thing.
"Warners also is opting for strong directors, tapping David Ayer ('Fury') for 'Suicide Squad' and seeking a female helmer for Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman," reads a new Hollywood Reporter article analyzing Warner Bros.' superhero movie slate.
"Wonder Woman" will get her own solo film in 2017 after making her debut in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" on March 25, 2016. "Justice League Part One" follows in 2017 and "Justice League Part Two" in 2019. The other planned DC movies are "Suicide Squad" (2016), "The Flash" (2018), "Aquaman" (2018), "Shazam" (2019), and "Green Lantern (2020)". The "Cyborg" starring Ray Fisher is set for 2020 as well.
